Gearing Up For Quest

???????????????????????????????To say things around here are a bit busy would be quite an understatement. At home, I have been busy working on my next line of batiks, adjusting the colors and patterns to try to get everything just right. Meanwhile in the Studio, we have the annual mad rush to get ready for the thousand quilters who will be visiting us during Quilters’ Quest which starts tomorrow.

Every “Quester” who comes into our shop and all of the participating shops receives a free pattern for that shop’s quilt and they have the opportunity to collect 10 inch squares used in each of the quilts. You have probably seen pictures of our design, Calliope. Not only have we been busy working on kits for Calliope but also making other quilt kits which fit this year’s theme, “Sunrise on the Potomac.”

???????????????????????????????We have several staffers who have been spending the past week doing nothing but making beautifully shaded fabric bundles. We also have some great new products that we picked up at Market. We can’t wait for you to see them.

Look at that beautiful border print skirt that Carole is wearing!

  1. I love the border print skirt! Did Carol use a pattern for that?

    1. This was a skirt pattern that we used to carry in the shop called the “Tulip Skirt.” This is not a pattern that we still carry but if we find any more details, we will be sure to post them here for you.

  2. We are coming on Friday, Nov. 13th. We can hardly wait.
    See you then.

  3. Sorry… My mind wandered off at the mention of more beautiful batiks on the way 😉 Quest sounds like all kinds of fun and I am sorry I live so far away. I’m sure the amazing effort you’ve put into preparing for this event will be well and truly appreciated by those participating.

  4. I can hardly wait for the Quest! I truly miss being just 40 miles from the shop. See you next week on the bus.

  5. Is it possible to get a PDF file of your beautiful 2015 Row by Row pattern?
    Thanks so much!

    1. Unfortunately we do not have our Row by Row pattern as a PDF but it is available for purchase. We can send this in a 1st class envelope for a little less than $1.00 in the US (disregard cost provided at checkout- your card will not be charged until your order has shipped). You can find the item here.
