Block of the month updates

We've been keeping our noses to the grindstone preparing for the Kansas City Regional Quilt Show June 15-17.  Vending is not anything new to us -- we've been to many shows -- but we've never been to a show where attendance was over 7000 in 2015 with hopes of doubling attendance this year.  We feel like the tiny fish in a great big bowl.....but it'll be loads of fun.

We plan to take our blocks of the month that have openings to the show.  If you're on the fence about whether to join, you may want to make your decision before June 15.  Rather than give complete details about each program, we'll refer you to our website for details about each program.

Community Sampler
Pretty Petals
Spooky Hollow
Seaside Town
Simply Vintage - still a work in progress but very close to completion
When we cut a block of the month, we always set aside some fabric in case someone miscuts.  We had enough fabric to make a kit of our very first block of the month "Friendship's Gift".  The book is required and is not included in the kit.  We are out of the book but can refer you to a source so you can buy your own copy.  Kit is $225 and will be sold first come, first served.
With July 4th just around the corner, it's time to start thinking of patriotic type kits.  "Choose Ye Liberty" could be displayed all summer long.  Your $26.95 kit includes the pattern, background fabric, wool for the applique, and binding.  Let us know if we can reserve a kit for you.
We'll be back next week with some new projects we're itching to share with you.  We hope as you make your summer travel plans you'll include plans for a trip to Sew Graceful.  See you soon.
