QUILT SHOW THIS WEEKEND!

 

EVQBooth2012

 

The Emerald Valley Quilters show is October 6-7 at the Lane County Events Center at the Fairgrounds in Eugene Oregon.

https://emeraldvalleyquilters.org/quilt-show/

I will have a booth for the first time in quite awhile. I think I remember how.  I’ll have many of my quilts on display, and fabrics, rulers and books from my website. Come by and take advantage of all the SHOW SPECIALS!

It seems like I’ve been cutting half-yard pieces for weeks now. I’ll have some fabric on bolts as well. These are all prints from my fabric lines with Clothworks Textiles. Because I haven’t been traveling to teach, I haven’t had as many opportunities to sell these fabrics as I used to, but somehow, I keep buying them. Prices will be $10.00 per yard off the bolt,  $5.00 for half-yards, and $2.50 for Fat Quarters.

Also look for good prices for my books and rulers. Please come by and say hello.

 

RED ALLOVER

Let me tell you about the quilt I’m working on. Remember the subtitle of my Feathered Star Quilt Blocks I book: Really Hard Blocks That Take a Long Time to Make? Well I’m at it again, only with a California Star Medallion quilt that will take a “really long time to make.” The center block is not so hard and I made it a while back, but the first border has 40 three-inch Ohio Stars. I seem to be making 4 blocks a day. The next border is a double-sawtooth and has 200 two-triangle squares. That’s a lot of bias-strips. Then I plan a sampler border of fourteen 12” blocks that all involve two triangle squares: some are new Feathered Star designs, some are traditional blocks that just have lots of triangles. The design involves lattices with about another 250 two-triangles squares

I’m apparently not over the red and white craze inspired by the red and white quilt exhibit in New York a few years ago — and I do love my red stash. I realize some of the prints I’m pulling for this very scrappy quilt are from the 1980s: is that good or bad? The other reds are from my fabric lines Staples V, Raspberry & Cream, and Chocolate & Cherry.Red:whiteFQP

On my website, I put all the red prints I have for sale together on a page called RED ALLOVER. If you go there, along with yardage, you will also see a RED AND WHITE Fat Quarter Pack that I’ve put together to help you build and maintain your stash of red and white prints. I can’t explain it, but as I use up my old red and white prints, I get a little sad that I won’t “have” them anymore — thus the push to find more.http://www.marshamccloskey.com/redallover.html

Here are some other red and white quilts for your enjoyment.

I designed a Block of the Month Pattern for shops to go with the Raspberry & Cream fabrics. The 9″ sampler blocks are from my book, Marsha McCloskey’s Block Party. Shops interested in participating can order the pattern binder on my website. There’s still time!!!

Feathered Star course with Craft University

My online Feathered Star course with Craft University is now “ON DEMAND”! You can start any time! For my followers on the blog, you can get 20% off by using the coupon code: NOW20

The class project is a 15″ Radiant Feathered Star: my favorite feathered star block and what I think is one of the easiest to piece. The online course covers drafting, precision cutting, and precision piecing.
