Let the party begin…

Yay!!  Block party started today and I am so excited. (I get that way a lot about quilting)  This year it’s all about scraps and called Strip Tzz.  Today we did show & tell of last year’s block party and let me tell you, those quilts were fabulous.   The talent always blows me away.  After show & tell, I introduced the concept of Strip Tzz. It is a little different this year because I will be teaching a whole pattern instead of just one block. By the end of the year, everyone will have 12 patterns.  Today’s pattern is “Twice as Nice” and everybody got a full color pattern booklet with the design and technique all together.  In addition they got a pink boa and an Eleanor Burns Club bag.  It is a 16” x 16” non-woven club bag that they can fill up and get 5% off everything they can fit in the bag.  The partiers can use Jelly Rolls, or their own stash to make 3 different quilts out of this pattern.  Strip Tzz is great for beginners as well as experienced quilters.  Today’s block party is being taped and an online demonstration will be available soon to watch on our free media theatre so be sure to check out our home page halfway down, www.quiltinaday.com

    Hi Eleanor,
    Congratulations on your Blog! I am sure you will do well. I wish I was in that picture enjoying your class, but I certainly enjoy viewing your virtual classroom. Thanks for all you do.

    I have been spending some time today watching your videos from your barn block class. I have to find this book. It reminds me of summers spent on my Grandparents farm in Iowa. I will have to make myself this quilt. You sure look like you have fun with your classes! Maybe one day I will be in one of them.

    Congratulations on your new blog, I hope you manage to find time to update it often. Hopefully this will get me out of my not wanting to sew funk.

    Hi for over here in England, I am a new quilter and found you on Sky TV – am having a wonderful time doing your night and day quilt although I have had trouble getting the wonderful ruler you use, finally sourced one (seems to be only one company in UK who do it). Have now found a friend who travels to the US regularaly so will be sending her over with my orders in future. Thanks again for showing me a quick and delightful way of quilting and looking forward to the next episode. Best wishes Sue
