As many of you know, at the last two year's quilt shows, you have been able to pick up free patterns for a specially designed quilt.
At the 2012 Quilt Show, we are honored to have Renee Nanneman from Need'l Love design a quilt for our 30th Anniversay quilt show. We have received the pattern and fabric from Renee and we are in the process of putting this special quilt together. You will want to keep checking back for sneek peeks!
You will be able to receive the pattern for free by attending the Quilt Show in September. How? The vendors will have one piece to the pattern and by going to the vendor booths you can pick up your copy!
So mark your calendar's for September 21-22, 2012! See you there!

Today you are making 6 itty bitty’s on point.
You can make them out of all solids, all 4 squares, or mix it up. But you need a total of 6 of these.
Using a color of your choice cut 6 –1 ½ inch squares— (or however many you choose)
Using 1 inch strips make a few 4 squares.
To set them on point I used a solid light fabric.
Cut a 3 ½ inch square and cut it diagonallythen in halves. Sew on triangles to the4 square itty bitty
unit—they will float within the triangle. That is ok—trimming may be necessary. Sew end to end
forming a long unit. It should measure about 10 ½ inches (aprox)
(ok-I had a picture to show how I cut the square--but it didn't come through.)
Enjoy the day!

So, my second entry in the blog of the Northland Needlers Quilt Show. I am one of the Co-Chairs. I don't have much expertise in blogging, or for that matter Publicity--but that is my goal for this year--to gain some much needed experience and some wonderful Helpers!
So, where does one go for help with Publicity? Good Question! I have a friend who could sell ice to an Eskimo--I will pick her mind...and I have a gal who volunteered to help me...I will get her going too! But besides quilt shops where do we hang out? Anybody know? Drop me a line and let me know where you hang out that might attract a larger viewing audience. Maybe I will have a contest--first I have to figure out if you can actually answer me on this blog site...So, answer and I will have a firm decision on contest and guide lines tomorrow...
Thanks everyone! Collette

Ok-I get to do the blog--not sure what I am doing, but here goes! I love roses. My husband would occasionally bring me a rose when we were dating in high school that he would pick from his mother's rose garden. As a mother now, I know how much she must have loved her son to let him share his love with a single rose.
Oh, yes, fabric...We have a fabulous lady designing our Vendor Quilt for our 30th Anniversary Quilt Show. And yes, it has roses on some of the fabric. Renee Nanneman will be our designer for both the pattern and fabric and I can hardly wait to get my hands on both fabric and design!
So, what is your favorite design/designer? When whas the last time you indulged in using that designer's fabric?
