Shades of the Past Quilt Shop

Spring showers will bring May flowers!!  Here is our complimentary pattern for the upcoming planting season.  We will soon be sharing the fruits of our winter time creating with you as well.  We hope you enjoyed our March madness sew along via our Facebook page.   Louise is busy sewing blocks for our "COVID" friends quilt along blocks.   Thelma is still pushing calculator buttons much to her dismay!!  We will start unveiling the blocks on our Facebook page the week of April 15th.  We will also begin the sign up that week.   Stay tuned with this as I believe this will be a fun quilt to take part in as we look back over the past year and how covid has changed our world.  This is a pattern by Stitchin Tree from Iowa and it gives a little story along with each of the quilt blocks.  We will be creating one block a week and hope to offer a facebook group for sharing of blocks.  We will begin in May prior to fishing season so you can stitch a block while your partner is on the lake fishing!!  That way if you need to make a trip to the quilt shop - he is not around!!  Stay tuned!!
KEEP THE FAITH!!! Keep Stitching!!!!!!

                    2021 SEW ALONG - JOIN IN THE FUN!!!!!
                                   Covid Friends Quilt a-Long
Join us in our block of the week quilt a long beginning on Monday, May 10th.  We will be creating one block a week for 14 weeks to create your very own Covid 19 Friends Tribute Quilt.  This is a quilt that was designed by Teresa Coenen.  Teresa designed the quilt during the first few months of the pandemic as a therapeutic outlet.  The first page of each quilt block pattern contains an initial message about Covid and its impact on our lives.  The last page of the quilt block pattern closes with a message to consider and area to write your own personal Covid story.  Each of the 14 blocks relates to an aspect of Covid's impact on our lives from the Chinese Lantern block for the origination of the virus in China to the Baby Bunting block for the possible baby boom, each block will have a meaning to the areas of Covid's impact.  We hope to have a Facebook page just for the participants if they are interested in sharing their stories and/or blocks.  You do not need to participate in the FB group to participate in the sew along.  Cost for the 16 week program is $25.00.  There are project sizes ranging from a table runner to a King size quilt.  We hope you will consider joining us in this adventure!!  The supply list will be mailed out prior to the program.  

Join us as we travel in our own cars with our own quilting partners for a day of quilt shop adventure, fellowship, inspiration and fun!!!!
