May Newsletter From Quail's Nest Quilt Co
MAY NEWSLETTER AND SUMMER PREVIEW
(This is centered and arranged on our POS system, but changes when viewed on a phone or some computers)
There are many new projects that are underway right now. It just happens that many quilt projects are coming to an end all at the same time. That means new classes and kits are just beginning. No one has asked about Folklore in a while!
That is a first! It is hard to believe how long those fabrics and that quilt has stayed in demand!
I first took a picture of it in November of 2020.
Please see more about our classes at the website: quailsnestquiltco.com
Always register as soon as possible, so that we can see who is taking the class. Call us at 209-536-4009.
If you want to take a class, but cost is a problem, let us know, and we can work something out.
"Scrap Happy" is what I am calling a series of classes designed to be scrap busters. The first class is on May 20th from 10:00-2:00. It takes around (30) 6 1/2" scraps of both dark and light fabrics for the background squares, and 4 times that of dark and light 3 1/2" squares. It is $35.00. You will learn a lot about color, design, and quilting techniques. No need to collect all the scraps at once. Just enough to get started and we can exchange with each other, or gather more as we go.
It will make a large throw, but size really depends on what you want.
See the star emerge?!
Recently, two new fabric lines arrived. One is called, "Living the Dream", by Clothworks. I am currently working on our own version of the "Camping Tiles" pattern. There is a small and medium sized way to make this quilt from panels. THIS CLASS IS PLANNED FOR FRIDAY, JUNE 17TH. $35.00 Our version will be a bit different. (cuter)
While I was waiting for this line to arrive, a pattern called "Tiles" came in, but it is for much larger fabric blocks: Queen and King sized. So, when another fabric line appeared, called "Celtic Dreams", I started making a queen sized bed quilt for myself. Kaffe Fassett fabrics would work in this large version.
Celtic Dreams includes a highland cow, thistles, and Celtic knots.
Decorum will be released from MODA. It should be here next week. It has tones of blues, and browns from the Basic Grey designer. I am going to have a Block of the Month program based on this line. "Prisms in Blue" is what it is called. Two blocks a month will be covered for 10 months at $25.00 a month. Fabric and lessons will be offered monthly.
It is really more colorful.
Watch for "I Believe in Angels". It is a Block of the Month designed by Bunny Hill Designs. It is Christmas themed. July 19th is the projected beginning date. The fabrics have not been released yet. The classes and fabrics will be around the $25 dollar range. Let us know of your interest.
We may cancel if there is not enough interested in this BOM.
Today is "A Ribbon Runs Through It" classroom use day. Come get your block for the month. Stay and work on it if you want to. $35.99 This is the last month of this block style. We do have a few more BOM kits available! Monthly or as a complete set! There is fabric from the line available, and a bolt of background fabric that is extra.
