At the end of every Quilt Market Kari Bresenham always says "They say that all good things must come to an end and so it is with Quilt Market."
Well, she's right - but when it comes to a BOM, at least you have a quilt. Next week the last block for "Over the Meadow (and Through the Year)" ships out. It was a lot of fun to make. As usual, Lori's quilting just finishes it off so well. And thanks again to Claire Birch for naming it.
It's a big one - 82" x 98". We took this picture by hanging it off of the deck by the loft. Then Tori climbed on top of her car to take the picture. Quilting isn't all just sewing, you know. :)
But not to worry - there's another big quilt in the works. (I only do 1 or 2 really large quilts a year and they're usually BOMs.) This is Coxcombs & Pomegranates. I showed it to you the other day. We're taking sign ups for it right now. An email went out yesterday and we've had a great response. We only cut so many each year so if you'd like in on the fun, I'd call Byron or Tori at 816-632-7632 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org (we finally got it fixed) right away. We will take a waiting list if we're full because some people usually drop off each year.
I don't usually do this but here's a sneak peek of the first block. I'm down to sewing on the berries.
And if you're worried about all of the berries, don't be. Just following the tutorial on berries on the right side bar and they'll be easy as pie - berry pie :)
