It’s September!

And the start of my favourite month! We’ve been busy over the summer with gardening & holidays and now it’s time to get back to work on the sewing machines. September will bring us a wedding, a quilting retreat and a longarm quilter’s seminar for Joan.  Sewing days are starting up in October. Our first day is Saturday, October 3rdNovember 14 & December 12 are the other two days set aside for 2015.  Contact us via mapleleafquilters@gmail.com if you’re interested in a spot.

At the November sewing day I will be working on 25″ round table toppers using the 10* wedge ruler. We’ve made them in all colours and they are quick and easy to do. More info on this as the November sewing day nears.

The other thing that I want to do this fall is a label challenge. I made this small quilt for CQA 2013 using the Fat Tire beer label as inspiration for the vines and sunshine theme. You can start by choosing a label, any label that inspires you and then gather your fabrics, etc. I’ll set out the rules before October 1st…these won’t be big and should be fast to finish. :)

Happy Quilting…Valerie Raye
