"it's a smile, it's a kiss, it's a sip of wine....it's sumertime!-Kenny Chesney, all he needed to add was it's a time to start a quilt! Everything seems fresher and brighter this summer, inviting us to linger, enjoy and savor after a long cold winter. Have you noticed that the quilt world is full of patterns reflecting the delights of summer. Fabrics with bright colors and designs mirror the summer activities, rv fabric, picnic tables, bright flowers and a few dinosaurs makes us smile and happy to put
together your cheerful quilt!
A quilter can bond with fellow quilters with our sit n sews! It's fun to share experiences, discuss tales of your crazy projects and favorite techniques...but seriously, quilting in groups can be AWESOME for your self-esteem and weekly social needs. What could be better than gathering together with people who also understand and love one of your favorite activities. We'd love to see you on a Mon., Wed or Thurs., so JOIN UP this summer!
What else is on your summer itinerary? Another way to start off your summer is attend the Southern Indiana Shop Hop (June 20 - 23) and visit 9 shops to see what's new and available. Take an adventurous road trip, or find a quiet spot to read a good book, or picnic with family and friends, enjoy every minute. Then recreate it in a quilt to enjoy for summers to come.
