Shall We Fandango

Here is a photo of the first of two samples Sue is making for Fandango.  This one uses 30’s fabric scraps.  She is making another using batik scraps.  She has improved the pattern in several ways to make it easier to square up your blocks—typical of Sue.  And no, it’s not paper piecing.

2015 Row by Row Experience – No Winner Yet!
Even though we have had many Rowers dropping in there is still no sign of a winning, completed quilt.  We expect the focus fabric for our mini-bundles to be back in stock next week.  As soon as it arrives we will start cutting the mini-bundles and also calling those quilters on our wait list.

Billings Farm Quilt Exhibition
We are very excited to announce that our very own Christy’s quilt won the ribbon for Staff Favorite.  Here are photos of Christy and her quilt and also Jim’s quilt.  You have until September 20 to view the exhibition at the Billings Farm museum in Woodstock.
