Hope you are planing to join us Saturday, March 19th for our QIY (quilt it your self ) Event.
Here is the schedule of demonstrations

10:00-10:45 Marking your quilt top
10:45-11.30 Layering and basting your quilt
11:30-12:15 How to choose your thread, batting and needles
Lunch break
1:00-1:45 Choosing your quilt designs
1:45-2:30 Long arm quilting, what you need to know before you drop of your quilt
2:30-3:15 Hand quilting
3:15 -4:00 Binding your quilt

Mary Dittenber just finished quilting this quilt shown for the Calico House and I had asked here to quilt it as if the rectangles where individual tiles. She certainly met my expectations and will be talking about this quilt in her 1:45 demo and talk. Some times you know just what you want , but she will discuss how she chooses quilt designs for those customers who have no ideas when they drop their quilts off. The pattern is called Sassy Fats and uses 13 fat quarters and two border fabrics.The fabrics are from Michael Miller and kits are available.
A little bird told me there will treats for those who attend.
