Just another reminder, for those of you who live in or will be visiting Washington State around the Lake Washington area, support your Local Quilt Shops this weekend and participate in the First Annual Around the Lake Quilt Shop Holiday Hop– today, Friday December 5th & tomorrow, Saturday December 6th!
A free pattern, the ‘Merry & Bright Star’ block, using a red-cream-white color scheme of American Made Brand solids by Clothworks will be featured in this first ever mini Holiday-themed Shop Hop. Below is a pic of the pattern, a much simplified version of the Feathered Star quilt pattern inspired by Clothworks fabric designer and Quilt designer Marsha McCloskey.
As you can see in the picture all the way at the top of this post, Susan from Gathering Fabric Quilt Shop, has turned her completed ‘Merry & Bright Star’ block into a wall-hanging that’s both aesthetically pleasing and functional (loving the dual use as a candy cane holder!!!). Be sure to make a stop at her shop, Gathering Fabric Quilt Shop, to be inspired by many more holiday and gift-giving ideas! And just to entice you a bit more to make the loop around the lake to her shop, Susan is offering a grand prize giveaway of 20 Half Yard Cuts in assorted colors of American Made Brand Fabrics ( see below)!!
Don’t miss this event!! It’s sure to get you in the spirit of the season!! For more info on the Around the Lake Quilt Shop Holiday Hop, head to this link. And Don’t forget to make a stop at the other four local shops participating in the Holiday Hop, too: Gossypium, Keepsake Cottage Fabrics, Quiltworks Northwest, and The Quilting Loft!
Have a Splendid Weekend!
