Getting Excited!

Love it when the Quilt Shows start in the Spring! I attended the Quilt Show in Saginaw last week. Love looking at the beautiful quilts, new ideas and simply being around other quilters! The next one is in Bay City (will give more details when it gets closer) the week before ours. Than of course our Quilt Show the first weekend in May. I did create "Events" for each day of the Quilt Show in Facebook. If you are on Facebook, please share the event so we can get it out to as many people as possible. Here is the link to the first day Quilters Squared Quilt Show . There are separate events for each day.

Than on Facebook this morning I found this interesting link Fold and Sew Quilt Block . Interesting! I might have to try this one out. It looks simple enough even for me!

Spring is here! Keep sewing.

Slow Stitching Movement

Just in case you don't know me very well, I am a bit of an information junkie. So I am going to share  "information" that I find on quilting/stitching/etc.

This is a new concept out there "Slow Stitching Movement". At least a new name, maybe not a completely new idea! Check out this link Slow Stitching Movement to get an idea of what they mean. A number of the designers are talking about this movement and it is interesting. They are talking about enjoying the process itself rather than hurrying to get to the finished product. They also mention frequently how being in the process helps creativity. It is taking me awhile to figure out exactly (not quite there!) they mean, but it is certainly interesting. Go ahead and check out the link and let me know what you think!
