Two New Online Quilting Classes


Hi All! Hope each and everyone of you and your families had a wonderful Christmas holiday. I have two new and exciting quilting classes coming up in the first part of 2020.
The first one is called Crazy Hearts & Stars which will begin on January 10,2020 in a private group on Facebook and the second one is called Garden Transfusion which will start on February 1,2020 on Facebook as well. Both projects are table runners, but can easily be adapted to small wall hangings. Registration is now open for both classes. The class fee for both classes is $20.00 each. If you are interested in signing up for either one or both of the classes please send me a regular email to katiebock242@gmail.com with your email address. I will then send you a Paypal Invoice. Once payment is made I will send you the link to the group along with the supply list. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
Happy Quilting.Hugs Katie

Text It Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hi Ladies! Last year Sherri Noel of Rebecca Designs offered quilters spots on her blog hop to celebrate the upcoming release of her new book Text It! Quilts & Pillows With Something To Say and I jumped at the chance to participate. This book is filled with a variety of wonderful projects from pillows to lap quilts, small wall hangings and sew much more. The project I chose to do was called "Life Is Short" which was a quick and easy wall hanging to make. Thanks again Sherri for allowing me to participate in your blog hop. Once I get a few unexpected quilting/sewing commitments finished I will be working on a few more projects from your book. 

Giveaway Time:
Martingale is giving away a copy of the Text It! book to one of you. Also as an added bonus you will receive two cones of Aurifil thread as well. To enter this giveaway (United States Residents Only) please answer the following question: "What was the very first quilting project that you ever made?"
I will pick one random winner on March 17th "National Quilting Day".

March - 2019 Color Challenge







It's the third month of the 2019 Color Challenge.
Can you believe that it's already March already? I can't. This year is really flying by. Anyhow I signed up last year to participate in the 2019 Color Challenge that is hosted by Jen Shaffer of Patterns by Jen. I decided I would do March and November's blocks this year as those were not only my favorite colors, but those months have very special meaning to me. If you would like to join in on the fun please visit: https://patternsbyjen.blogspot.com/2018/12/introducing-2019-monthly-color-challenge.html.
