Hello Pieceful Quilters:

As many of you know, I am a huge fan of Stitchin' Heaven cruises - especially the Civil War Cruise, which I will be going on in April this year.  Because a few of us have banded together and we keep coming back, we are planning to do a separate block exchange, and possibly use one of the exchanges that I have done with Sarah's Sewing Circle in the past.  I am posting the instructions here, for anyone that is interested.  In our club, we used Carol Hopkins' Give and Take pattern.  I believe this pattern may be in one of her more recent books, as well:
My instructions are to make 6 identical blocks.  For the exchange you will keep 1 block and bring 5 to exchange.  You may make as many sets as you wish.  If you want to make this quilt, you will need to make 14 sets.  If you wish to have a regular sized PDF file, email me at carrie@piecefulgathering.com

Please contact me if you have questions!

Looking forward to seeing you all in April!

Sarah's Sewing Circle News 

Hello Sarah Members!

What a busy year I have planned for you!  In addition to the Circa 1880 Quilt and other club patterns, we will be starting the year with some quilts and projects made with my Charlotte line that FINALLY arrived today!  We were getting a little bit worried, since the Charlotte BOM starts next week.  We still have a couple of openings if you are interested, and it is also available for mail order:
 I did finish my Sarah's Mini Medallion Fibonacci Challenge quilt - well, the top - that is finished in my book!  As you can see, I used my Charlotte fabric for the quilt.  I was thinking about writing a pattern, but I think I will skip that.  The math is too annoying.

 Karen also finished hers.  She sent me a picture as she is getting it ready to quilt:

 Brenda also finished her top - shown below:  Anyone else?

Another cool thing that happened is that Tara Lynn Baisden, of Quilter's Ridge, designed 5 little quilts using my Charlotte fabric.  We will do at least a couple of these in Sarah Club - but I think I am going to do them all!  Which ones do you like the best?

The last one - Little Bits - uses a lot of scraps, so it looked like a natural for Sarah Club.  Maybe somewhere down the line.  

So many things to do!  I had better get sewing!

One Day Closer to Spring.......
