Preparing for QuiltCon January 30 2017, 0 Comments

Laura is busy cutting BUNDLES to take to QuiltCon!

The VFW Quilts Staff is hard at work getting all our inventory ready for vending at QuiltCon! Fabric bundles, and bolts and all my templates and goodies will be available for you there! Road trip! We will be Booth #338!  Will you be there?  Come by and Say Hi! Not going to  QuiltCon? That's OK, you can visit my webshop or my NYC STORE! ( and get your goodies now!) 

 

Laura and Kim will be working the booth, I'll be around, but will be teaching all day Thursday and Friday... I'll sneak in at lunch time to say hi. Saturday I will be in the booth, before I fly off to California to Empty Spools Seminars to teach a five day Double Wedding Ring Class.

 

 

Besides finishing up NEW quilt patterns and products for QuiltCon, I am finishing up this customer quilt. It's so much fun! I just love this quilt. She loves all color and Black and White, so... Here's my interpretation of that! It has all kinds  of crazy-fun-fabrics inside of it... I'll have this wrapped up by Thursday.  These larger shapes go together so nicely and get big fast!   Then work on a border... Stay tuned!  This quilt is a version of my Bright Lights Big City Quilt... pattern is in my Double Wedding ring Book

 

I wanted to thank you all for you thoughtful comments on The Quilt Show Episode. I asked that question to see what rings true for people. So thank you for sharing what you tips you picked up on. It's helpful to me as a teacher!

 

And I suppose you are awaiting the Winner of the Double Wedding Ring templates, right??

The winner for this post, is: Jennie B!

Congrats Jennie!

And thank you for your comments! It encourages me to blog more, if I hear your thoughts. ;-)


New Product! (one of many coming!) October 17 2016, 1 Comment

 

Something Different!

I was lecturing this past weekend at the Warwick Valley Quilt Guild, (Warwick, NY) so we decided, "We being my awesome team", to VEND at the Show. I often vend on my own when I lecture and teach at guilds, but to have a real booth display etc is all new to me.  I can tell you we had a great time!  This is good prep for us, as we will be VENDING at QUILTCON,  February in Savannah, GA!

 

 I think packing was the hardest part to whole experience... But I think we did a pretty good job!  

 

We have several new goodies, and I will be announcing them this week and next, so stay tuned to see what's NEW!  (one is below so keep reading!)  See above the Big Block Star QUILTTumbling arrows quiltVictory Blocks in progress, and DWR's!  Double wedding Rings!  All available in my SHOPS!

 

A great turn out for the two lectures I gave, we were definitely having some Extreme fun! It was such a GORGEOUS weekend, I was surprised so many came, as it was perfect apple/pumpkin picking time!  ;-)  I never did get my cup of hot apple cider.... mmmmm.

 

 

NEW PRODUCT!  

 

Here's the FIRST new product I can share with you today!

We now have a 7" finished BOW TIE acrylic set in the VFW quilts webshop and  NYC retail store!  We made this quilt up this past week, as we got inspired by using the SOLID Manor bundle to go with the MANOR STRIPES bundle!  Perfect for a baby quilt!

This set has many layout options! Love how you can make a Traditional design make it so Modern with some a few fun fabrics!

 

*Remember!  

My Solids are only $5 a yard!

My Prints are always $10 a yard...
