Up-Date - National Quilting Day And FQ SWAP

Fun at Bright Hopes Quilting!

Do you have fat quarters laying around that you just aren't that into any longer? Oh, you bought them with the very best of intentions but they have not made it into one of your projects! Well!

We are hosting a Fat Quarter Swap  this coming Saturday, March 16. If you have some unused fat quarters and would like to exchange them with fellow stitchers, here is your chance!

 Bundle 6 unused fat quarters and tie them up with ribbon. They ought to have some common theme, like nursery colors, batiks, or Christmas, or 'blenders'. Keep in mind, other quilters will be expecting to trade theirs for yours. (And double-check that you have't taken any small bite out of them. They should be completely 18" x 22".)
Then join us at 9 am to swap with others. You may bring as many bundles as you like and will take home the same number but hopefully not your own! 
Every one who participates will receive a free pattern that uses 12 fat quarters and some yardage, (which you may also already have in your stash!) We have several patterns to choose from as well, so you can really get started on something new for Spring.

Remember, the door opens early Saturday, March 16 at 9am and the 'Swap" will end before the scheduled class begins at 10:00am. We'll have something to nibble on as you visit and swap & we are very excited to see what you come up with.

Start National Quilting Day off with Bright Hopes Quilting!

Thank You to the ladies who participated in the swap. I really like the selection of 'taupes" I came away with!!!!!
