Our next class is a Back basting needle turn applique class.
If you do hand applique and don't know about this technique, you NEED to get in on this class! Ruth has been doing hand applique for 40 years, and has been using the back basting needle turn method for the last 5 years and swears she will never use another technique for hand applique again. It saves time, energy, material, and headaches.
Back in stock! Our "Michigan: A pixelated State Quilt" pattern is finally back! I'm not even sure it was put in the newsletter yet because we sold out of them before we got a chance to put them in!
We even have a kit put together!
Show your state pride while putting together a super fun quilt. This would be an awesome gift. Here's a fun idea: you could use a different color square to mark specific cities if you wanted. That would be really cool for showing people where you were born, or marking special locations.

This is just one of the four corner blocks in this beautiful quilt.
We are ready to finalize sign-ups for Masterpiece. We will be calling those on the interest list over the course of the next week and the first block will be ready to pick up May 15. There is still time to sign up, but be sure to do it soon so we know how much fabric to order.
