Do you think you are a Super Quilter?  Well, do you dress like this?  You have some work to do to catch up with this guy.  He is a regular at the AQS quilt show in Paducah.

Magic creativity from the "A Day With Marty" class

Barbara turned her projects from the March “A Day With Marty” class into this fun pillow and mini picture. Barbara just applied binding to the outer edge of the pillow and it looks just like piping!  Look for your chance to express yourself, coming in the Fall class schedule.

ALERT: Correction to the Second Saturday Sampler block kit

Oops! We’ve made our first Second Saturday Sampler cutting error. If you picked up your kit this morning (Sat., April 14), you will find you do not have enough of the black fabric (shown) to cut your 3” blocks. Just stop by the shop and pick up additional fabric or, if you live a distance, call us and we’ll mail you what you need. So sorry for any inconvenience!

Part Two: Second Saturday Sampler Show and Tell - March

More great quilts from 2nd Saturday Sampler Show and Tell.  You don't have to miss out.  Come to LQ tomorrow Saturday 4/14 betwen 9:30 and 11, to the back of the store to the classroom, and you too can participate.

Part One: March Second Saturday Sampler Show and Tell

Several ladies made extra of this month’s Jacob’s Ladder block and already have them sewn into tops! This was a great block for an all-over pattern.
Amie is setting her blocks as she goes. She took her 6” block and set it into a star block. By the end of the year, her blocks will be all ready to stitch together.

LQ has fantastic classes with fantastic results

Mary finished this beautiful Mariner’s Compass block in the Star Struck class. Janice Kuhns was the special guest teacher for the class in March and even though most of the class had very little experience with paper piecing, everybody got stunning results.

Leap To It

Julie was the first of our Leap Day participants to bring in her finished mystery quilt and it is so bright and cheery – perfect for her beach house! Mystery quilts are a lot of fun because you come to the class not knowing what the quilt pattern will be (be brave!). Choosing your fabrics can be a challenge, but as long as you have definite contrast between all your fabrics, anything will work.  You can see a trunk show of  quilts from the class now.

New, Different and SO Cute

Isn’t this just the cutest snowman? Anne is attending a Braid-In (like a quilt retreat for rug braiders) the end of April and everyone was challenged to make something with a weather theme. If there’s a prize, we think Anne is sure to win! Anne says her “snow braider" is getting ready for Spring, but she better hurry up and finish her rug!  There are five different styles of rug braiding and so far this project shows four of them. Anne plans to make a pocketbook for the snowlady to carry which will showcase the fifth type of braiding, a square braid.

Colorful Gift Quilt

Linda just finished this for her grand-daughter who is just 2½ years old. Linda wanted to give her a quilt she could grow into and we think this is perfect!
