Oh my goodness, it’s been a crazy week around here! Announcing the Potholder Swap earlier this week and getting ready for it has kept me on my toes! I’m very excited about the swap and the new pattern I wrote for it, but it has been quite the journey this week getting ready for it.

If you haven’t seen it yet, Hollyhock is the name of the pattern for the swap. I’ll have the pattern up on my Etsy site very soon if you want to make yourself a potholder but don’t want to join the swap.

I was able to grab a few moments to work on the Quilt Concert Series which was refreshing. It’s so nice to find time at the sewing machine.

Are you ready to work on the next block? It’s called Whirligig. I love saying that word, it just rolls off the tongue.

Whirligig is now available at The Not So Dramatic Life

There are only 2 blocks left to go, but all previous blocks are available! Head to The Not So Dramatic Life for cutting instructions and the even numbered block patterns and to Shoppe Lovingly Lissa for the odd numbered block patterns.

Our Sponsors this Week

We have two wonderful sponsors for the Quilt Concert this week. Let me present them to you.

Sew to Speak is a glorious local quilt shop in Worthington, Ohio. It is stocked with quilting cotton, garment fabric, and skeins and skeins of various yarns. There is always a warm welcome waiting for you and plenty of help if you need an extra set of eyes picking the perfect fabric.

Make Modern is Australia’s only dedicated modern quilt magazine. It began in 2014 when a group of passionate quilters had a dream of producing a magazine for quilters, by quilters, filled with beautiful patterns and articles to inspire quilters like us to make more modern quilts!
