Tomorrow - block #3

The Sew-Along continues tomorrow with block #3 from Sarah Maxwell from Homestead Hearth. Thank you so much for your great comments.  It sounds like you are really enjoying the Sew-Along and we love to hear that. In case you didn't see Pam's post from the other day, we now have a Yahoo Group for the Friends & Companions sew-along!!  Our thanks to Erica H. from Alaska for taking the time to set all of this up and be the group moderator.  Click here to see the Yahoo Group site.

Now it seems like I had a bit of a Senior Moment the other day.  The picture of the finished block in the downloadable/printable version of the directions was actually a mirror image of the block, so I corrected it and posted it in the next blog post and then discovered that the link didn't go to the directions - ugh!!  So, I reposted with the corrected directions again, but realized that you might not have even noticed because the post looked exactly the same as the one with the incorrect link.  Soooo, I figured I would just put the corrected link here - corrected downloadable/printable version of block #2.  Thank you for bearing with me through my Senior Moment!!

Paula did a kit inventory the other day and discovered that we have a couple of kits with very low inventory - 1,2,or 3 kits only.  I thought I would share them here. All of these kits contain the fabrics that are in the samples.  Most of these fabrics are no longer available and once the kits are gone, we will no longer be kitting these quilts.  Each kit listed here links to it on our website, so check them out. Baskets of Plenty, Harper's Ferry, A House Divided, and Legacy.

Summer is drawing to an end and many of us are starting to think about possible vacations for next year.  Paula and I love quilt cruises and she's been invited to teach on another one - YAY!! Rose Ann Cook of Quilter's Emporium in Stafford, TX has planned a quilt cruise on the Carnival Magic from February 1-8, 2015.  The cruise leaves from Galveston, TX.  Three days at sea for classes and stops in Key West, and Freeport and Nassau in The Bahamas. For more information, check our website: Carnival Magic cruise.

I've been working on Soldiers' Waltz, our new quilt with Landon Creek.  You've seen some of the fabrics, so I thought I would share some of the quilt itself. All I can say is WOW!! I'm almost to the border stage - oh yeah, 3 of those borders to be exact.  Fabric for quilt #2 has arrived and is waiting in the wings.  #3 is designed also and fabric should arrive any day now.  Looks like I'm going to be busy for a while - YAY!!!

Remember to visit Homestead Hearth tomorrow for block #3!

Until next time, happy quilting,
Mary Ellen
