Let the party begin…

Tuesday, January 12th, 2010

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,
