It’s me, Jayme, aka “Finding Sweet Land” in the quilting community, back on the Shannon Fabrics blog!! We have officially entered spring!! Even if it doesn’t quite feel like it yet. That did not stop me from starting on some spring projects this past week. One of the projects I had planned was painted pillows backed in Cuddle®.
Hello! It’s Annette from A Sewful Life blog. I’ve been sewing for as long as I can remember and I wanted to tell you about a great tunic that I recently made. It’s part of the Handmade Wardrobe I stitched up for the Sewing & Stitchery Expo show where I taught a few classes for Shannon Fabrics. Teaching is so rewarding and I love it!
Spring? What spring?! It’s me, Jayme, aka “Finding Sweet Land” in the quilting community, back on the Shannon Fabrics blog. This past week I thought we were on the up and up here in Eastern Idaho. The temps were getting into the 40’s and we were getting lots of rain. The showers had about taken away 90% of the snow on the ground and it smelled like spring. I love the smell of rain after months of snowing. I had a spring post planned for the coming weeks, but the past two days we’ve gotten another foot of snow here (also expecting snow all week next week) and all I want to do is jump back in my bed with all of my Cuddle® blankets.
Did you know that March 18, 2017 is Worldwide Quilting Day? And better yet, March is National Quilting Month! So how did we get so lucky? Well, The National Quilting Association (NQA) began sponsoring National Quilting Day with a resolution passed by members in 1991. National Quilting Day has evolved — and now we have Worldwide Quilting Day and National Quilting Month! To help celebrate the love of quilts and quilting, we’ve complied some fun facts about quilts and their history.
