March 11– Until Fabric runs Out! Five Yard Challenge -Yes, we are starting early this year. This is one of my favorite things to do. Many of you know how this works, I will chose 5 fabrics and make a bundle of 1-yard cuts. You will make a quilt using the 5 fabric. You get to choose the pattern and can add any fabric you want. Must be at least a lap size (can be bigger if you want), be able to see all five fabrics, be completed by September 30, and brought to the shop to be displayed during the Mystery Harvest Shop Hop or first weekend in October. Quilters will vote on a Viewer’s Choice! It is amazing to see all the quilts hanging on the porch. Cost of the kit is $49.95.
