I have just completed sending out the March partners with 66 members now in the group and 58 of them swapping this month.
A warm welcome to Carole from Dorset in the UK who joined us last month and for Roberta from New York who joined us only yesterday. Welcome ladies
Exciting times ahead as we head towards our third birthday and I hope to have some sponsored give always for our Birthday month so stay tuned for that in the coming weeks.
Also with the release of designer Libby Richardson's new quilt “ A little bit country” in April I am planning of hosting a stitch along. I am currently in communication with Libby about a group discount on the pattern set for those of you that may be interested.
I am currently participating in a stitch along of her Girls day out pattern and having so much fun. This one is hosted by the lovely Sharon of Lillabelle Lane.
If you want to join in take a look at is on http://friendsmakingquilts.blogspot.com.au/
Here is a tease of some of the blocks in this new quilt – how gorgeous are these. The stitch along will be to go at your own pace, so no pressure on having it finished but we aim to start some time in May / June this year.
If you think you might be interested send me an email so I can start gathering numbers to let Libby know.
The other swap that will be launched later this month is the table runner swap via my blog quilted hugs – details in a few weeks time.
