While you are all getting ready for fall and another year of quilting, a few of us are busy planning next year’s Quilts at the Creek. The dates are set, so mark your calendars: July 18 & 19th, 2015.
We like to do something different each year, and this year it is a mystery quilt challenge, called In the Pioneer Spirit. The challenge is to use only fabrics only in your stash, but this is not a hard-and-fast rule- not everyone has a stash as large as mine! Instructions will be published here monthly, and Q@C organizers will be posting their progress. You can join in anytime, but we would like your quilt finished by next summer, so we can have a display of them at Quilts at the Creek.
This quilt has been designed especially for us by Sherri Hisey of Border Creek Station Pattern Company, so you know it is a gorgeous pattern. Sherri’s instructions are so well written that the overall design of the quilt remains a mystery for quite a while. So check out this month’s instructions, and think about what colours and fabric style you want to use. Below is one of Sherri’s patterns- in two different colour ways… happy quilting!
Workshops at our show are always popular (and sold out!) so sign up for email notifications of new posts,and you will be among the first to know who will be teaching next year’s workshops.
