Testomonial to Jean Cable's Quilting Class!

If you ever wondered if taking a Machine Quilting Class would get you going in the right direction..........here are a few thoughts from Sylvia S.,  who took Jean Cable's machine quilting class!

Sylvia said..........."I just about got tired of working on it but I was determined to finish it before I start another project. I started it about a year ago and put it aside waiting until I found the backing for it. It is a queen size and I did all my free motion quilting thanks to a class I took at the Quilter's Loft. Erica, be sure to thank Jean for me. Her class was very helpful!

Here are some pictures with details of her quilting.  A beautiful project....Sylvia....thanks for sharing!

The first 20 to register will receive a "charm" pack of the Downton Abbey Fabrics

So How does this Mystery Work You Ask?

Well we are glad you asked!  It is not your traditional Mystery!

This one is a Mystery to the Staff of Quilters Loft!  What!! We won't know what you are making??  Interesting!  We thought and thought...........but not all of the projects offered for Downton Abbey were, well let's say, not our cup of tea!  Some of them were pretty, .......but really didn't work for a club atmosphere!

So the Plot thickens!

You pay the registration fee and purchase all of your fabrics at the Quilters Loft.  Fabrics will be held until the April meeting, and then will be released to the sales floor.  
Select your project or design your own.
It can be any size, shape, or project!  
There must be a represented amount of each of the fabrics!  Yes, the "I love it fabrics" and hum "not my favorite ones"!
But!!!!  Do not reveal what you are making!!!!  This is your SECRET!!!!!!  You are the Mystery designer!!!!!  You all are so talented and creative!  Inspire us!

At the Club Meeting (April to December)

Reveal a portion of your design or selected quilt project!
Build on the Mystery at each meeting ...........you can make as little or as much as you want to reveal at each meeting!  Remember you are the designer of your Mystery!
Bring other Show and Tell, do a demo, let me show you technique.....it is up to you!

In December ........Christmas Reveal Party!
