Well, as promised, I am going to start showing you the Team Fab-Etc version of this
year's Quilt Tour - "Sky's The Limit". There are currently 16 shops in the Tri-County Quilt Merchants' Association, henceforth known as the TQMA. The theme this year is star blocks. We each designed a 9" finished star block, got together in the fall and passed the patterns around. Then, we have each designed a quilt, using everyone's blocks, but our own choice of fabrics and settings. We can change the size of the blocks, but not the design. So...just like last year, I thought I would blog a block from our quilt every day or two. Last year, I started in the north and worked my way south, showing the blocks in "geographical" order. This year, I thought I would start at the top of our quilt and work my way down to the finish. This block is from Aunt Mary's in Smokey Point. Those fun angles on the star points are sometimes called "Peakey and Spike" angles. Next up from our quilt will be Calico Creations' block!
Been a fun finish to our TQMA quilt...kept us all on our toes! So, what else has been going on? Well, we got the first of our Blossom Fairies from Michael Miller. They are very pretty. The originals were from Rose and Hubble Fabrics - that is the originals in fabric. They are taken from designs by Cicely Mary Barker.
Ok....more paperwork to do and my March newsletter isn't done yet! A box came today from Clothworks, and I didn't have time to open it, so I'll have to let you know what it was in our next installment of star blocks. Stay tuned for more soon. Have a great evening!
