About Me

My photo
I made my first quilt in 1973 while pregnant with my second daughter. My mother and grandmother both quilted but had not taught me, so I really began from scratch. I wanted a quilt to cover her bassinet, it was awful but it kept her head from rubbing the woven bassinet. My next attempt was a crib quilt for her but I had no one to tell me how large to make it. I measured the mattress and made it that size. Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Sam with no room to cover the baby. It just lays flat on the mattress. To say I have learned a lot, is an understatement.

Christmas is the season of much joy and giving. Even if you do not celebrate Christmas, this is also a season where we have the opportunity to attend many parties, large and small. Whether this is a party for friends, co-workers or family, we all enjoy them to the fullest.

As Christmas fast approaches, it also will mark only one week before a very important party ends.

The 2010 Patchwork Party will come a close on December 31st. You absolutely must order your blocks prior to the end of the month or you are not going to be able to fully enjoy this particular party. Blocks will not be available after midnight on New Year's Eve. It is a celebration of your quilting year of 2010, don't let the calendar slip up on you. Don't be caught watching the ball drop in Times Square and knowing you dropped the ball on this party.

You will be able to order the finishing kits after that time as long as the shops have fabrics available, but why not go ahead and order the one of your choice while you are getting the blocks. This will allow you a special quilt to work on if you find some quiet time, or need some quiet time, during the holidays.

This party has been a particularly popular one with the use of Marti Michel's beautiful line of fabric, Wild Rose.

The blocks are only $7 which includes your shipping from each shop. The price of the finishing kits varies from shop to shop.

Our finishing kit is for "Sweet Briar Rose" and sells for $99.99 and the backing is also $99.99 for the 96" square quilt (save 20% if you order at the same time as the top). This is a savings of $20, with your total at $179.99 (top and back).

As a special holiday gift to you, if you order your finishing kit, plus the backing, prior to Dec 31, we will discount the entire package an additional 10%, for a total of only $161.98 with FREE SHIPPING. But you must order before the ball drops in Times Square.

Whether you order our finishing kit or not, the entire staff of Quilters Quarters wishes you the very best of the season and the merriest of Christmases ever.

May God Bless each and every one.
