Hello Friends!

The Letter G newsletter is a Great place to launch our next Quilt-Along! Geez, it’s been a while, right?! We are excited to announce that the next quilt we’d like to make along with you is called “Luminous” and it is written by our talented, local friend, Kate from Kate Colleran Designs!

For those of you who say “Look at all those half-square triangles! No Way! Look at all those flying geese! Not for me!” Let me counter with, “look at those beautiful HST and flying geese!” Kate’s pattern is the perfect way to hone your skills and maybe learn a new way of putting these tricky blocks together. She makes a hard-looking quilt easy to sew and because the pattern is a block of the month, it is manageable and easy to not get overwhelmed.

I know that for me, personally, I really like cruising along in my comfort zone. It is so, so good for us to get out of that rut and try something new. I sewed with batiks (which have not always been a favorite) and I definitely used a pallet that is not my norm (so much orange!) I am so proud of myself for trying something new and I am really pleased with the result. Challenge yourself! If not now, when? Now is the time to do it!

We will be here to support you all along the way with tips and tricks in the newsletters, meet-ups for some in person demos and hands on help!  Let’s do this together!

First step: Get the pattern! (Here’s a link) The pattern’s price is going up – but for our Quilt Along we are holding it at $28.00!

Second step: Pick out some fabric!! Come in any time for that – OR ….


…. Join us THIS SATURDAY, April 2nd at 10:30 am.  Kate will be here to introduce the pattern to you, talk about color and fabric selections, and – how’s this for good timing?  Our Moda Grunge and Northcott Canvas fabrics are ON SALE for this Letter G Sale! These would be PERFECT background fabrics – and at 25% OFF – could it be even more perfect?!

Please call or email us to RSVP for this Quilt-Along Launch session!  No charge – but we would like a head count on who’s coming! (303) 761-9231. or info@woodenspools.com

We will have tips and tricks to share with you in our next newsletter – and more in-person help sessions as we move along with a block a month!
