April 16, Downtown Harlan is hosting an event: Hop Around Downtown. There will be promotions and special deals all around the square.
You won't want to miss it!
How will this save the barn? We'll tell you later...
just save the date!
And the winner is.... Gloria Kenkel! On March 1, we issued the last kit for our block of the month, On Point, in Portobello Market fabric by Three Sisters for Moda. Gloria, Earling, has been keeping up with each month's blocks. Today, she brought in her completed quilt top. Isn't it a beauty? Gloria blanket stitched around her applique center with red thread. The result is quite stunning. Gloria came by to pick out fabrics for additional borders. Gloria won't have time to finish the borders before she takes off this weekend. She is traveling to Cincinnati with her four daughters to watch the women's NCAA final four -- a family tradition.

The beaded and embellished quilt at right is incredible. My apologies, I left the notes about these quilts at the shop, so for now, I am posting from memory. I'll make corrections tomorrow when I get to the shop.
Sandy and a friend challenged themselves to construct their quilts. Sandy said the fun part was finding the fabrics. You can't see the detail, but it is embellished with mini xmas lights, custom beads, and Christmas candies. The detail is incredible. I encouraged Sandy to join the Iowa Quilt guild so that she can show her quilts at Reiman Gardens this summer.

The workshop for Bloom will be held on Thursday, March 24 6:30-8:30 pm. During the workshop, quilters will learn to make the two blocks necessary to complete the quilt. Quilters provide their own fabric. The $25 class fee includes the ruler (retail $21.95)... Joan Hawley, the designer of the ruler, has published a book that shows 250 different blocks that can be constructed using the ruler.
