Machine applique anyone.....

So many of you have inquired over the years about machine applique done with fusible web.  We have our own resident, award-winning machine applique guru in Diane here @ Fab-Etc!  I managed to persuade her to teach a quick beginning class on the *basics* of machine applique!  You've probably seen the little 12" quilts that hang by the south door as you come in.  Well, you can pick any one of these and Diane will teach you how to make them ~ from the tracing of the images, to the machine stitching.  The class is scheduled for Thursday, October 2nd and there are still a couple of spots open.  We're just updating the classes on the website, so you can get the rest of the particulars at www.fabric-etc.com

Oh my....it has just been a whirlwind of activity around here this week!  I keep thinking I will make some progress on a few projects I've got, but it just isn't happening.  We've gotten some really great fabrics this week too!  There's a super bluebird panel with prints that arrived ~ you've probably seen the ads in the magazines.  Diane is working on a project over the weekend.  And another fun bird print just arrived today.  We have new batiks too.  Tomorrow, Applique Society meets in the morning and then Diane's Beginning Quilting Class is in the afternoon.  Alicia and I will be trying to rearrange and make some room for all of the new fabrics that have come in this week in between waiting on customers.  (I really need to find the top of my desk again, too!)

And....the summer weather is supposed to make a comeback over the weekend.  I have some outside work to do on Sunday, besides the Seahawks game and some paperwork and a block for the Tri-County Quilt Tour in March.  What's your weekend look like?
