Shades of the Past Quilt Shop

 
STASH SOCIETY

The society of fellow quilters looking for new patterns to use up those
scraps you just can't throw away is beginning on October 19th!  Weezer will show you tips and tricks to work with small scrap pieces as well as 
quilting tips.  There are four projects in our first grouping along with a bonus
pin cushion.  Patterns will be emailed to you in color the third Wednesday of each month.  Cost to join the society is $20.00.   Individual patterns of each project will be available for $6.50 after they have been emailed to the society members.

WOOLY BLOCK ADVENTURE 2022
"FRONT PORCH HOLIDAYS"

I am not going to lie, this took some thinking to design up a porch!!!  With some help from my husband for the porch construction, I chose one of my favorite design themes and came up with "Mr Black's Porch".   We also designed a wool background to hang it on.  We have a downloadable pattern and kits available for the background as well as hangers.  Stay tuned as we are going to start a series of 8 inch projects for this little penny background.  The needle and scissors are busy creating these little blocks so stay tuned for their unveiling as they are finished.  We hope you enjoy the adventure and stitching up
"Mr Blacks Porch!"

Kempers Crossing
Our new wool sampler block of the week.  This sampler was designed while I watched the 2022 Stanley Cup playoffs.  Now that we are on the heels of the 2023 NHL season, we want to kick off our wool sampler project for you to create as our thoughts turn to those indoor projects due to crisp weather ahead!!   The sampler finishes 16 x 22 inches.  We will begin our sampler on Monday, October 3rd just as the NHL season begins.  You will receive a PDF to download each Monday with the block instructions for that week.  We will wrap up our project the beginning of December.  Join us for the "wool drop" on October 17th!!
Cost:  $25.00

"Nutropolis"
