I know that we have not spoken in a long time and for that we apologize. Last year we were so good about writing a daily blog post featuring one Kona Cotton color of the day. At times it was hard to keep up with it, but we were able to feature all 365 colors with notes, fun facts, color boards, stories, and more. In the end we hope that you learned a little bit about us and our quilting journey. If you missed any of our posts you can always go back and read them on our blog.
So after taking a break from daily blogging we are back, although not as frequent, so we wanted to let you know what we are doing here in the studio. In April we started making some mini mug rug projects to use up some of our scraps. We are featuring the first one today. This is the Tulip Block and we used Kona Thistle and Crocus, as well as a deep purple 1895 Watercolor Hoffman batik and some white on white. It was a fun project that went together quickly and would make a great springtime gift that you could easily make in time for Mother’s Day this weekend.
If you are local to the Dallas area, we have been working on updating our classes. In May we are working with Andrea Armitage and she will be teaching a Seasonal Petals Table Runner. We are also doing our version of a Swoon Block class. Other upcoming events in June include our Beginning Quilt I Session and a Kids Sewing and Quilting Camp. Looking ahead to July, we are participating in a Shop Hop – more details to come. We will also start our Beginning Quilt II Session. Kathleen and I have been making Candice Bags and we would like to have a class on bag making as well, but have not quite worked out all of the details, so stay tuned for more information about that class.
Until next time,
Diane and Kathleen
