New Block of the Month- The Seasoned Quilter

Some of you stitchers out there may well recognize this lady, The Seasoned Quilter, by Amy Bradley. She's a HOOT!

Pearl offered her as a BOM back in, (are you sitting down?) 2006! Wow, has it been that long?

She is holding in her 3-dimensional "hands" a complete quilt! Each month will be a kit to make another quilt based on a holiday or seasonal theme.
Here is "Easter"

and this is a year-round "welcome" sign.

This makes a fun fusible applique project using your blanket stitch on the sewing machine but just as easily done is needle-turning. Then, let the embellishing begin!

Well, there are new quilters who are just meeting her for the first time, and others who missed out altogether back then, who are signing up for our new 10- month BOM. We will be starting the BOM shortly and I'll give all the good information in this week's newsletter but if you want to get a jump on the BOM, give Pearl a call at 985-845-9554.
