There is today and tomorrow to complete the Harvest Sampler Shop Hop. TNQ’s version of the quilt is hanging in the shop in the classroom area. It is beautiful. The scalloped border adds to its overall beauty and interest. The tool for the scalloped border and the finishing kits are available at the shop at the end of the shop hop. You can come in to pick it up or call have it mailed to you. Of course, if you purchase the finishing kit from TNQ and have questions about the border, there is advice and tips available to you.
If you were planning to start The Noble Quilter’s original BOM, but couldn’t make it last month or if you were just undecided, let this 1st block inspire you. The block uses the Rapid Fire LeMoyne Star ruler by Deb Tucker of 180 Studios. There is a kit available but feel free to complete this in the fabric of your choice – it would be beautiful in batiks also (my opinion).
This is a picture of the entire quilt. You will learn to use a variety of tools to create this gem. Margie will be teaching this on Thursday, November 14 from 10 AM until Noon. It is not too late to get started, come in or call to sign up.
This is another new BOM. Hampton Ridge will be taught by Doris starting on Thursday, November 21 from 10 AM until Noon or on Saturday, November 23 from 10 AM until Noon. Wow! Doris is making it easy to be a part of this BOM. The beginning quilt blocks are at The Noble Quilter to intrigue you. This BOM hasn’t started yet so get yourself signed up and enjoy.
If you have seen this quilt and wish you had started it – no worries. The Noble Quilter will help you get started and you will be provided with all the monthly blocks. Don’t let a late start keep you from doing something you would enjoy. It does continue on Wednesday, November 6 from 6 PM until 7 PM and Thursday, November 14 from Noon until 1 PM
Coming up in 1 week on Saturday, October 26 from 10 Am until Noon is the TNQ Pre-Christmas Open House!!!
It is never too early to start those Christmas gifts or at least to get some ideas. There will be 8 demonstrations happening between 10 AM and Noon. There will be kits and patterns and accessories to go with the demos. Sarah from Blueberry Backroads , Lorrie from Beancounter Quilts and staff members Lori, Jackie, Margie, Cathy, Yvonne and me (Jan) will be showing or teaching how to do projects that will inspire you to go home and get “busy” with those gifts (and maybe some of them will be for yourself). Of course, there will be treats too, who quilts without the “treat or snack” factor. Come and join us for the fun and the ideas (I personally guarantee laughter).
Looking Forward to Seeing You Soon,
Jan & Angie
