It's coming !...
There is lots of activity around Amherst, as we get ready for the Nova Scotia Fibre Arts Festival!
Dayle's has their ever popular block challenge. For $2.50 you get a fat quarter of neutral background and about a 6.5 inch square of a basket print to use in your block.
The theme is 'Harvest Patches' and their colours provide a great starting point. Add in some of your 'fall-ish' colours and create a mini masterpiece- all in a 12.5 inch square cotton fabric block. It's an interesting challenge for an experienced or beginner.
All the entered blocks will be hung on display with numbers and customers will be asked to pick 1 number as their favourite block. That favourite number will win 20 of the other quilt blocks. It's a neat contest and it's a great way for people who have never quilted, to have a reason to start.
Good luck and lots of fun to all of those that have entered, and to those that haven't- what is stopping you?
On a different note, Mrs Pugsley's Emporium Inc will not be open this Friday and Saturday. I have a prior commitment this weekend. I will be open this Wednesday and Thursdays from 10 am to 4:30 pm- closing for an hr lunch break from 1:30 to 2:30pm.
Fabrics in, that I am very excited about...Flannels, High Street and ... Fairy Frost! Those will be for the next posts. Have a great day.
PS: Mirror Ball Dot or MBD, is also in !
