It’s time for another Monday Morning Quilting Quicky! We’ll have a new video and project every other Monday throughout the summer, so be sure to catch them all!
Today, Marcia will show you how to use Prairie Points to make the stunning dimensional border we used in our fabulous and fun row (and our table-topper variation) for this year’s Row by Row Experience Shop Hop!
Our row features ships sailing along a sea of Prairie Points, and the pattern is absolutely free when you stop in the shop during the Row by Row Hop.
And remember! The first person to come into each participating shop with a completed quilt featuring 8 different shops’ rows will win 25 fat quarters! Whoa!
To make this border, you’ll need:
The Row By Row Charm Pack
Fabric Glue Pen (if you’re like Marcia and want to skip the pins!)
Twas the night before Friday and all through the studio there is a flurry of activity as I clear my table in anticipation of the second clue. I wonder what it might be this week. The cheery red and white four patches remind me of peppermints and Christmas. The coffee is set and my clothes laid out. I am an early riser by nature and I wake early to begin checking my phone for the next clue.
It seems the world over is urging Bonnie to wake and to post the next clue…this is a testament to the positive power she has near and far...even across the water to Australia.
It’s Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt time and the theme is Good Fortune! What a lovely sentiment….good fortune. I have had the Good Fortune to be surrounded by friends and family both far and near and although the mystery is a special blessing for those whose families are scattered or gone for me it is a Blessing and a time for renewal and reflection.
This is the fourth mystery quilt I have chosen to create in the last 5 years. I took one year off and there are parts of me that still regret that decision. However, my design wall clearly called my name and asked that I finish a few of my own projects…..I completed 4 between Thanksgiving and Christmas...how, it’s a bit of a mystery.
Sunday afternoons mean lazy naps for some, football for others and for me it means cutting time.
I am usually rested and ready to set up my weeks sewing projects. At the end of a work day it’s easy peasy to sew a few seams here and there and by the end of the week I am ready for another Sunday afternoon cutting session.
