Hello Friends, I hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day weekend, and that you have had a great week so far. I also hope you had enjoyed the Shades of Blue Thread Hop that happened last week over at Aurifil’s blog to celebrate my INDIGO thread collection. In case you missed it… click HERE to read! Be sure you catch all three parts.
If you like blue and white, my Norfolk quilt “fresh blue and white” edition is now available as a BOM kit. Click HERE to sign up.
My 2-cents this week are almost too obvious, but often overlooked. Here we go…
It’s a new week – if you haven’t changed out the needle, clean and oil your machine, it’s time to do so!
I have shared my 2-cents. It’s now your turn. I am curious though… how often do you perform maintenance on your machine?
Friendly reminder on my upcoming FASHIONISTA Leader/Enders sewalong — it will be fun! Click HERE if you hadn’t heard about it. Get your materials ready to start on May 26!!
TO GET READY:
1. Pattern & fabric yardage information – purchase Quilters World Summer 2022 issue HERE.
Note: You may make your quilt with or without the outer border. I am going to make mine without the outer border for the sew along. So I won’t need an outer border fabric – just a jelly roll & the background fabric. Be sure to add the outer border fabric to your shopping list if you want your quilt to have an outer print border.
Click HERE if you want to make your own handbag quilt with the same fabrics I used.
