Are you ready??

Tomorrow is the big day!  Are you ready?  Do you have your kit or have your selected your own fabric?  (There's still time to order a kit - once you see that first block you're going to want to have a quilt that looks just like ours!!)  Click here: Marcus Fabrics Friends and Companions Sew-Along kit and we'll ship it right out to you. Pam has block #1 all ready to go, so check out her blog Friday morning.  Yes it is time to start the sew-along!! It's really hard to believe it's really August!!  Where has the summer gone??

Here's the schedule for the 10 week program:
8/1     Pam Buda - Heartspun Quilts                 
8/8     Paula Barnes - Red Crinoline Quilts       
8/15  Sarah Maxwell - Homestead Hearth       
8/22  Pati Violick - Marcus Fabrics                  
8/29  Gloria Parsons - Olde Green Cupboard   
9/5    Nancy Rink - Nancy Rink Designs          
9/12  Mary Ellen Robison - Red Crinoline Quilts
9/19  Dolores Smith - Homestead Hearth       
9/26  Lisa Shepard - Marcus Fabrics              
10/3  Red Crinoline Quilts - Quilt Revealed     

 We are all really excited about this program and hope you will enjoy it as much as we have in designing it.  Remember the quilt is 60"x60" and features fabrics from Paula's Companions collection.  Here's a picture of the fabrics in case you've forgotten how beautiful they are!!!

Starting tomorrow you'll get to see where the designers have used some of these great fabrics.  Have you been guessing which ones are in the pieced blocks and which ones are in the border?  Some of your answers will be revealed tomorrow!!

Now on a personal note:  did anyone watch Sharknado 2 last night?  Peter and I watched the first one in Louisville last year with daughter #1 and I can't honestly believe they made a second one.  Now it's confession time - I did go ahead and DVR #2 last night!!  Why, you ask?  I don't know!!  I love a good disaster movie - not that this qualifies as a "good" disaster movie, but still I bought into the hype.  I am currently caught up on all of my regular shows and not quite ready to start something new on Netflix, so I think I will be watching Sharknado 2 while I sew this afternoon. I'm afraid that it's going to be so bad I won't even be able to sew!!!  I'll have to let you know how this goes.  Should be interesting!!! 

Until next time, happy quilting,
Mary Ellen
