UFO for September and New Quilt Sampler Magazine

by CountryThreads on September 2, 2014

We picked the UFO for September today and we are all working on #2!

We’ve been doing a horrible job of finishing our projects, but we all agree that there is always next month.  In the shop we will be working on the following:

  • Dawn: finish a rag rug
  • Joan: braided rug
  • Connie: bind 3 quilts
  • Ina: sort, organize, and clean sewing room
  • Mary B.: piece 10 large & 10 small blocks for M&S
  • Lori: Cat Magic
  • Mandy: quilt Homestead Reunion
  • Mary E.: wooden green basket

The new Quilt Sampler magazine just got here today.  This Fall/Winter 2014 issue has 136 pages filled with wonderful project.  Order one by clicking here now.
