At last! It seems like forever since I introduced my new Tokens of the Past: Gathering In Blue trio at Quilt Market. It's been a couple of months, and I've been anxious to spread the word about it, but I wanted to wait until all of the fabric, namely the 10 x 10 precuts of Mrs. Miller's Apprentice were ready.
What would be the point of telling you all about this pattern whereby all of the units and blocks for all three quilts are made from just one 10 inch precut of Mrs. Miller's Apprentice when the precut wasn't ready?
It's ready now and available at your local quilt shop!!
Color Me Blue. A wonderful star quilt in many shades of blue. The quilt measures 18 x 18.
Check My Stars. I love this quilt so much. It was so fun to piece and play with all those fabrics. I am definitely in a "postage stamp" phase in designing right now. Love, love piecing little squares. Perfect leader/ender projects. Quilt measures 13.5 x 13.5 inches.
Blue Angel. It has a little applique with the orange peel shapes and is very easy to do. It applique is a FOUR letter word to you, you can sub wool appliques if you like, or play with more HST. Quilt measures 20 x 20 inches.
Please ask for the pattern and Mrs. Miller's Apprentice fabrics at your local quilt shop. We simply must make it a priority to buy our quilting goodies from our LQS to support them!!! We can't afford not one more shop to close its doors. Seriously...my friends.
If your LQS isn't into reproductions, or you don't have a shop nearby, you can order the Tokens of the Past: Gathering In Blue pattern and a complete kit (with all the same fabrics I used) from my website here.
Or...if you'd just like the Tokens of the Past: Gathering In Blue pattern, you can order it here.
My new Kentucky Crossroads quilt top is being assembled now. All of the blocks are done and the top is coming together. Looking so, so good!! It's exciting to see a new quilt come together.
I'm also beginning to pack for my next trip. I just returned home from the Atlanta, GA area where I visited with the quilters of East Cobb Quilters Guild. Had the best time with them!! Great ladies to spend time with, delicious food and quilts to die for from their members. Thank you all for a terrific time.
I'm off to spend a few days of vacation in the Washington, DC area with my hubby. We will travel to visit the Winterthur Museum in Delaware, and the Harper's Ferry CW battlefield in West Virginia, after which I can cross off two more states in my quest to visit all 50. That will leave me with just one left!!!!!!
Then, onto Maryland to give a workshop at Traditions at the White Swan in Hagerstown, and Spring Water Designs in Columbia.
After that....off to Lee's Summit, MO for Stitching With The Stars. I'd sure love to see you there!!!
Grab an iced tea and a comfy chair on the porch this evening and do a little stitching. Sounds lovely, doesn't it?
