The Civil War Sewing Circle Club

Here's some more fun for you to think about. Some of you are enjoying making this small quilt of the month with me and so I thought I'd pass along a link to another shop that is doing a quilt a month from my latest book, The Civil War Sewing Circle.

Jerry Stube at Quilters Quarters in Leavenworth, Kansas, is coordinating a year-long program at the shop to make ALL of the quilts from this book beginning in March. With kits! That means loads of fabric. This is also going to be available for her online customers. That could be you.

Jerry has done programs like this in the past with my other books. I've heard good things about them and you and I know that clubs are a great way for you to actually get some quilts made. Sometimes all you need is a little nudge. Online clubs like this are terrific if you cannot take a class at a local quilt shop. You can still join in the fun. Even better if the fabric is already chosen for you and delivered right to your door. 

Knock, knock. Who's there? Fabric.

Okay, so I tell jokes like a three-year-old, with no punchline, but you get the point. And, if you join the club, you get Fabric. Every month. So check with Jerry and see what she has in store for you beginning in March.

At some point we may also be doing one or two quilts from this book in our small quilt quilt-a-long in the Yahoo group and through this blog as we go through the year.

Some of you have finished this month's quilt already! Good for you! If you are not in the Yahoo group and have nowhere to post photos so we can all see them (and ooh and ahh), you can upload them to my Flickr group - Quilts Designed by Kathy Tracy, which I created last year just so we can see what people are making.

If you haven't started cutting your pieces yet, get going . . . there's still time.

Oh my goodness! I'm excited for this news too. I am starting on your quilt for the month tomorrow!

Do we have to buy the kits to do this new quilt along? Or can we use fabrics from our ever bulging stash ? :D

I bought your book last summer and I love it. Well done.

Nice to know some of your work has inspired kits to be available!!! I have wanted to start on your Mourning quilt, but do you think I can find my copy of the 'Prairie Children....', have searched high and low and it has completely disappeared, so I had to order another one LOL!!!! I'm on the look out for some vintage floral fabric for the border in the meantime!!!

I actually participated in a QOM from another shop that used this book last year. I didn't have the time to finish them so that is my goal for 2012. Get all of them finished to decorate my hallway wall.

Mad about Craft said...

Well! your joke made me laugh!

Thank you. My husband thought it was stupid but he laughed too. My son used to tell jokes like that all the time when he was little and then roll on the floor laughing at himself.

Thank you, Lucie.

Merilyn, I shipped your book out to you yesterday. Glad you are going to join me.
