Shades of the Past Quilt Shop

 
It is official - all our spring quilt shows have been cancelled.  Lacey is home busy creating and I am working on a limited basis as well so our thoughts are turning to what we can do to stay connected with all of you.  Stay tuned for our "virtual" ideas that are developing!!   In the meantime, stay positive, listen to "I AM" by Crowder for an upbeat message of certainty, limit the amount of news you are listening to, and keep working with your stash so when we can be out and about again you will be ready for a bunch of new projects!!

We have decided to share a new pattern we just completed.  Click on the link by the photo below for a free download!!

KEEP THE FAITH!!!  HAPPY SEWING!!!!!!



MASKS NEEDED 


I just received a call from Bonnie at Quilt Haven in Hutchinson.  She said that the Clara City police department was on its way for masks as they are in need of masks.  She was sending elastic cord with the police officer so if any one is in the Clara City area and is willing to sew masks for emergency personnel, please email us and we will direct you to the elastic pickup site as well as the mask drop off site after we are in communication with the police department.  Here is a link to the Missouri Star Quilt Company homemade mask video.  We have been told that they prefer we DO NOT use flannel for a couple different reasons and the fabric MUST BE prewashed.  If you wish to make ties that also works in place of the elastic as that has also become quite scarce!!

This started off as a bus trip project some 5 years ago.  Today we scaled it down during our "Safe at Home" time and have decided to share it with you today.  We hope you enjoy this quick little project to help pass the time during our "safe at home" days!!  Both designs are from the same pattern but finished off differently - thus the "Day 1" option and the "Day 2" option.  Both options can be found on the pattern download and are perfect for scraps or a candy pack and some additional fabric!!
