New Sarah Club Quilt for May

Hello Pieceful Quilters,

We have been busy trying to get ahead, since we are leaving for the International Quilt Market in Minneapolis on Wednesday morning. Yikes! I have so much to do before then!

I just wanted to give you a sneak preview of the project we are introducing at next week's meeting of Sarah's Sewing Circle. Below you will see a picture of Deb's antique quilt that we will be reproducing this month. The original looks like it was probably made in the 20's or 30's, but it was made from a deep scrap bag with many great indigo prints, shirtings, mourning grays and other turn of the century fabrics.

We tried to reproduce the soft and cozy feel of the original with our collection of turn of the century repros and shirtings, and I think you are going to be pretty happy with the results!

Our version is a little scaled down with slightly smaller blocks than the original yielding a nice lap size quilt. Kits will be available to Sarah Club member first, at their club discount, and thereafter any that are left will be available in the shop.

It is never too late to join any of our clubs. We encourage you to jump in at any time, and pay only for the remaining meetings in a session. (Such a Deal!)

Anyway, I digress - Here is the original quilt:

Bet you can't wait to see our version!

Happy Quilting!
