Quilt Mercantile and Quiltagious Quarters Fall update
|Quilt Mercantile Fall update
Fall is just around the corner. We hope your summer has been filled with family, fun, and friends! The Plano quilt show was a great success. (Don't forget the quilt show in Sulphur Springs will be Sept. 19th&20th. Their raffle quilt won a ribbon and judges choice!) If you were not able to make it, you missed some beautiful quilts. Linda Neal's "Twas the night before Christmas" quilt won Best of Show and Viewers Choice.
This amazing quilt is going places for sure. Linda uses the P3 freezer paper starch method SO join the class in October and you can learn to do it!
We have enjoyed meeting many new quilters since we are participating in the Row by Row experience. We now have a winner and she used our row in her quilt!
