It's Not Hard
Beginner's Blocks

Wednesdays, October 6th, 13th and 20th
Time 10:00-4:00
New to quilting? Haven’t sewn for years? Like a variety of blocks?

After some practice sewing consistent ¼” seams, we’ll construct two different 12” blocks each week. Alternative methods and tools for creating and squaring up half-square triangles will be shown. If you join us weekly, you’ll have at least six different classic 12” blocks, but yardage is calculated in the hope that you will duplicate your blocks at home. (Practice may not make perfect, but it will make a larger quilt!)

Susan's Musings

What an incredible Fall Day. How can you not love these clear skies , the crisp air and the changing colors. Okay it does signal what is coming ahead when you look up and see the snow on the top of the Missions  or wade into the chilly water to hook up the boat to pull it out for the season.  The Fall chore list is posted on the fridge door and a few things have been checked off. At the top of the list is a trip to Glacier and I am hoping Pat and I will head that way this week end if the weather man ‘s prediction of little to no chance of rain on Saturday and Sunday holds true.

Sometimes we just need to be reminded of the magnificence of where we live. One of my out of state fabric vendors stayed with us this week and fell in love with the beauty of this area. She stood on our deck and just drank in the setting sun, the calm water and the mountains. She called it her retreat home while on her 6 week road trip visiting stores across Montana, Idaho , Utah and Nevada. We spent the evening enjoying dinner, sharing a bottle of wine and visiting. It is so uplifting to find a person in your life that you immediately connect with on so many levels. Obviously we share quilting and a love of fabric. But as we shared our life experience, it became clear that even though we have only known each other a few years, the bond of what life has taught us was common.

The importance of having deep rich friendships cannot be overlooked. We don’t have to come from the same place, be at the same place in our lives but we need that relationship of good friends whom  we can be open and honest with regularly. I am blessed in my life to have a number of these special friendships. I am reminded that it is the quality of the friends we have that is important not the number.

A busy October lays ahead as we prepare for the upcoming retreat and have a number of great classes on the calendar. New fabric comes in the back door on a regular basis. The website is finally up and active, even though still missing some pictures. I am sure it will continue to be a work in progress. Everyone here has been great at spending the hours needed to reach this point. I have a great team!
