It’s time to light the lights, and raise the curtain!


First Notes

First Notes is the first quilt in the Quilt Concert Series and Cassandra and I are so thrilled to introduce it to you. For this version I chose 4 print fabrics and 1 solid. The result reminds me of an impressionist painting.

The Cutting Instructions are available at Cassandra’s Etsy Store for $2 now.

Opening week Sponsor.

Hobbs has manufactured high-quality quilt batting (wadding) for hobbyist, commercial, art and show quilters since 1978.

Hobbs is sponsoring 4 prizes during this quilt along along with the grand prize. This week’s prize is a queen size 80/20 bleached batting.

Heirloom® Premium Cotton Blend is made from 80% long staple cotton fibers and 20% fine polyester. This combination of fibers creates a strong, long-wearing batt and is very easy to handle. The batting is lightly needle punched and treated with a soft resin to provide stability to the fibers and prevent the polyester from bearding. This process makes Heirloom® Cotton Blend Batting uniquely easy to quilt by hand.
