                                                    very little experience as well as a seasoned quilter!

                                                       • OPTION #1 – Old Glory is a project that resembles
                                                          a flag. It is made using 6” blocks
                                                       • OPTION #2 – Same blocks as Old Glory, but it does
                                                          not resemble a flag, is made using 12” blocks &
                                                          can be made as a lap quilt or queen size. Ours
                                                          is a 2 color quilt, but feel free to mix it up to

Block A Month Option #3
This project is from our Civil War March 3X6 pattern. Sound familiar? The larger version was
our block a month for 2009. For eight months we will include the pattern & fabrics to complete a
row (even the setting triangles) for $18.00. We’d be happy to ship to you for an additional $4.
The final month will be sashing, border & binding for $24.00 ($5 to ship). The final month is
optional—that way you can choose your own fabrics for this last step if you’d like. Packets can
be picked up or will be mailed the 20th of each month. At sign up you will pay for the first two
months. Each month you pick up a packet (or it is sent to you) you will pay for the next. Those
wanting theirs shipped will be required to leave a credit card number—payment will be taken
care of that way.

  Things to look forward to!
Barn Show! Mother Nature wasn’t very nice to us last June for our first
ever Barn Show featuring quilts displayed on the side of a gorgeous old
barn just outside of Lanark. Although the rains were steady all day we
were able to keep the quilts on the barn for the few brave souls that
ventured out (check out the pictures on our web-site!).   We’re hoping
                                 th
for a bright sunny day on July 10 to give it another try. So mark your
calendar! The show will be from 10-4 pretty much come rain or shine (if
you are unsure please give the shop a call prior to traveling). A lunch
stand will be available, as well as a few craft vendors & possibly a few
other surprises! The address is 11570 Stone Bridge Road, Lanark, IL.
Cost: $4 for driver, $2 for each person in the vehicle (age 11 & under
free)

Bus Hop! This was a great time for everyone, so of course we are
planning another one! Although a date has not been set yet, we’re
thinking it will be held in Oct. once again. If you missed the
information about the last one, let me wet your appetite with a few
details of how it works. Approximately eight shops will be involved.
Each shop will be trying to fill a charter bus with their customers.
Each bus will leave from their ‘home’ shop traveling in a rotation to all
the other participating shops. Each bus will have about and hour and a
half to shop at each shop. Each shop will supply either snacks or a meal
(depending on your designated time of arrival). After visiting four
shops your driver will take you to a motel for the evening. The next day
takes you to the remaining four shops. At the end of day two you’ll be
dropped off at your ‘home’ shop.   So much fun was had by those that
attended last time & just as they were, you’ll be pleasantly surprised
that all of this fun is offered to you at a lost cost of approximately
$120! That’s right—charter bus, motel stay, all your meals are included!

Quilt Shop Hop! Mark the dates for this annual event that’s always a
favorite. Nov. 5-6, 12-13. All shops will be open from 9-5. Look for a
couple new shops to be added to the ‘circuit’!
