Sadie is here to let you know that as of yesterday afternoon, we became completely CURRENT with the Addicted to Scraps book and Essential Triangle Tool orders!
The “Pre-order” status notification has been removed from the Quiltville Store and we are now working in REAL TIME for the first time since September!
Several months of go go go go go and hurry up and wait.
I want to thank you all for bearing with us while we dealt with the manufacturing and printing schedules, and you really helped keep my spirits up even though your orders were waiting.
We are ending 2016 on a high note!
From our Wanderlust Course with Craft U!
(Scrap Quilting Basics from Beginning to Binding!)
I’m having a great time interacting with my students in the forum at Craft U. This is Denise’s first post and she made her first Wanderlust block using the Essential Triangle tool and the tutorials provided in the course. You can still save 15% with the code WANDER15 during registration.
We are just getting to the point of using the Essential Triangle Tool for our En Provence mystery, and this is a great way to have those tutorials at your finger tips. Also included with the course is a free pattern for the Wanderlust table runner so you don’t have to make the whole big quilt if you don’t want to. The table runner is the perfect size to hone your skills.

Groetjes, Jellie from Amsterdam!!
Yesterday while deep in mail order fulfillment, the postal carrier came knocking with a package from the Netherlands! I’ve searched my email address book, my Facebook Open Studio group data base, and there is no known email address or way to contact this person, so Jellie – if you see this, I want to thank you so much for your lovely gift!
I have a fondness for delft blue tiles and dishes and have a few cherished pieces here at home from my past visits to the Netherlands, so this is PERFECT! And those fabric strips? Straight from Provence…perfect. Thank you so very very much for your kind thoughts!
To celebrate the empty order queue, I did some of this last night:
Oh, this could be fun!
Just a sampling of what can be done with these!
There is never a pattern until the quilt is done. It’s like – What comes first, the chicken, or the egg? We are still in the egg laying process here – and it may be a wall hanging, a table runner, or GO BIG.
All I know is that I haven’t had a paper piecing project since Wild & Goosey was finished for the Addicted to Scraps book and I LOVE paper piecing. This would travel easy for me with a baggie of neutral crumbs and a baggie of red crumbs and I can easily sew it on borrowed machines during my 2017 year.
For all I know, maybe 16 units is enough for a pot holder.
But I had fun! And there are still all of those red/neutral friendship stars to finish for the Dawn’s Early Light quilt as well. Good thing I love red.
My red stash is only rivaled by the blue running a close second!
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
Vintage four patch quilt found in Kentucky by Irene @finelystitched
I'm getting excited for 2017 to arrive!
I'm polishing off my list of things I would like to accomplish - in my home, in my work life, in my quilt life. I am itching to dig into some new projects, and finishing some not so old ones. I love new beginnings!
Are you getting excited too?
It’s the LAST Wednesday of 2016. What will you do with yours?
