I didn't mean to scare you but October is almost over which means the October sale is almost over as well. I really must say thank you to all the quilters that have come by this month. There have been many days of interesting projects and ideas coming to life which means we have been having a blast.
After only a few weeks this pile is dwindling...dwindling...ohhh...how can someone so pretty be sooo evil....hehhhehehehhe. My favorite line from the Wizard of Oz as the wicked old witch melts away....Behind the scenes, my "It" guy has been busy getting all the new Kaffe fabric up on the website so go on over and have a look. We have added a new button to the Material Obsession website
If you want a custom order kit or if see something here on the blog and you have to have it you can order it via the special orders button.!!! No more searching for template plastic to place a dummy order. Finally we are getting our act together.
Now, back at the fort, I want to congratulate the beginning quilter of the month! Susan came in one Friday afternoon a few weeks back. She wanted to make a quilt for her son. She returned and this is what she had made...
We were, in a word, amazed...
It's a simple nine patch pattern in nice boys colours of red, black, gray and white. Very effective. She has the bug. When Susan dropped off this quilt to go to the quilter she picked up fabrics for her next quilt for her other son.
Each of the quilts has a personality, each one has taught her something new and now she has a bundle of fabrics for her third quilt...this one for a girl. The shop has been a buzz with interesting projects all day every day. It can be quite distracting. Some days I try not to look so as I can do some oh so very important business like stuff in the office but really, 2012 calendars, class schedules, events and teaching trips aren't half as much fun as looking at people's quilts!
This one we had to see by email since it was made by Kate in Singapore. She has been busy getting lots of quilts together for a lunch and quilt show of the quilters there. Sounded like a big fun day. Kate has also been working on this beauty..
Which is captivating as well. Kate is very missed on a day to day level in the shop so it is nice to be able to catch up on her quilts via email.
Ok, it is another exam day and things have to start moving around here. It is essential to make all boys taking exams a big breakfast so they don't get hungry half way through. Today and then Tuesday and then...Noah is done!!! We will all take a deep breath.
If we can't see you in the shop try the online shop to take advantage of the sale...enjoy. Kathy
