PRE-CUT KIT - A FAST & FUN WORKSHOP

The weather cooperated with us on Monday evening, January 16, as seven quilters participated in the Road to Paradise - Valentine Table Runner workshop.  The workshop featured a PRE-CUT kit using Sandy Gervais' L'Amour fabrics.  The quilters were kind enough to be my guinea pigs, trying out a new pattern that I plan to take to Paducah.  They had great suggestions for improving the pattern.  Feedback for the PRE-CUT kits was very positive, with the quilters appreciating the time saved from cutting odd-sized triangular blocks.  Also, the dog-ears are already trimmed from the pre-cut blocks, making piecing super easy and fast.

We have one kit remaining -- if you want it, you better call quickly -- $29 includes pattern, pre-cut blocks, backing and binding.









Patty Stephens, Macedonia, was first to finish her table runner.

Our own Linda Kreifels spent time to check the accuracy of her quarter inch foot.
