Yes, I found out I had a design in Love of Quilting magazine. I received a large brown envelope in the mail yesterday. I thought, did you order a book and forgot about it? I opened the envelope and there were 2 copies of the magazine. Well now, let’s see..what did I design? Must have been something with Sara Gallegos. Yep! Two years ago, I was asked to design a mystery quilt for Decorative Stitch Quilt shop.https://decorativestitch.com/
Sara renamed the quilt Wave-washed Pebbles. I have not seen the quilt since she made the one for the magazine. Annette Huston and Ken Thompson quilted. Sara, host of LOQ tv showed how we made the quilt on the 3300 series episode 3312.
Its kind of nice when you see your name in a magazine.
Mystery Quilt: for the past several years Decorative Stitch has hosted a Mystery quilt day/weekend. They are a lot of fun. When they host mystery quilt they go all out! The provide the quilt fabric already cut into the sizes and shapes, a machine, thread and more goodies in your box. All you have to do is show up. When you walk into the store the day of mystery quilt, the classroom is off limits till the official start time.
Every machine is assigned to someone so there are name tags at each machine. You will find, but you cannot peak, a large pizza box sitting beside your assigned machine. Inside the pizza box are all the pieces and parts needed for block construction. We have a power point presentation for each step and lots of helpers in the room in case you have sewing machine issues. We go through a quick demo on the machine to make you comfortable. Then it is mark, get set, let’s Sew!
Oh and I can’t forget that drinks, snacks and lunch are provided!
When Mary & Sara host an event they do it right!
On that note, I need to get busy! I have a trunk show presentation tonight at Oakland County Quilt Guild in Rochester, MI
