Who would like some Stag & Thistle?

11 Jun

Fellow Quilters,

This is a quick post with a couple of updates and reminders – quick because I know some of you are very busy trying to get your Time to Quilt quilt-along tops assembled for tomorrow’s deadline.

In my last post 2 weeks ago I asked for some inspiration and motivation from you so I could finish my Super-size Shimmer quilt top.  I offered up a fabric prize as YOUR motivation to send me a picture of your assembled top or finished quilt by end-of-day tomorrow June 12th.  Your picture can either be emailed to me at patti.pattispatchwork@gmail.com or posted on my Patti’s Patchwork Facebook page.  To further motivate you I snapped a photo of the lovely prize – a fat quarter packet of all 14 pieces from new Northcott designer Brett Lewis’ premier collection Stag & Thistle.

It is gorgeous!  I debated about keeping it for myself and finding something else for the prize before my moral compass re-aligned itself.  I look forward to seeing your photos.

In my last post I also shared that I would be doing a Facebook Live post as part of the Designer Tips & Techniques 3-day event June 2-4.  Well, the event was postponed and rescheduled to June 16-18. Revised June SM The full schedule is here and my time slot is June 16 at 2pm EST.  It will still be my very first Facebook Live and I hope to see you over on my Facebook page.  I have also signed up for the July 7-9 schedule and my time slot is July 8 at 4pm.  I should be much better for the 2nd event 😊.

I wanted to keep the Wednesday at 3pm time slot open because my friend Linda Hahn hosts a weekly Facebook Live event called Sew What! Zoomcast.  She posts the zoom link on her Facebook page and replays the weekly post on YouTube (just google Sew What! Zoomcast on YouTube to find the previous recordings).

My feeble attempts at gardening continue.  I stopped at a local nursery to pick up 2 patio plants and added 2 cherry tomato plants and a basil plant to my purchase.  I have a delicious recipe that uses cherry tomatoes and basil.  I’m not sure what type of basil I bought but the leaves are enormous.

I want this plant to flourish so if anyone has advice on how I should care for it please share your thoughts in the comments below.

Time to head into my sewing room to finish a magazine project and practice my Facebook Live again…
