Thank you for quilting this for me Paula! You did an awesome job and I love how it turned out. This is a Judy Niemeyer Dinner Plate Dahlia. I started a class in May 2019 and finished with the binding yesterday. It was my first time paper piecing. I also took a paper piecing class with Diane and that helped.

Join us for our Doorways to Digital Design Event
February 22 and 23.

Do you want to learn how to incorporate digital tools into your stitching? Whether you quilt, embroider, design, or all of the above, this event is just the thing for you! We are partnering with Jones Sew N Vac for a great educational weekend! We will explore tools and software for the beginning digital quilter, and demonstrate how to use tools you already own, like your phone and computer, to enable you to quilt with the power of digital design. The possibilities are endless with digital technologies available for quilters. Beginners welcome and no specific machines or tools are needed to participate in the workshop.

Friday, February 22, 6:30-8pm
Digital Design Possibilities
This night is free but you need a ticket! Stop by Bluebird Quilt Studio for a ticket (and your chance for door prizes) on this tour of the digital possibilities for quilters and sewers. Refreshments served.

Saturday, February 23, 9am-4pm $79
Opening the Door to Digital Design
This day is a friendly introduction to digital design tools for quilters and sewers. We will explore techniques for designing using computers, cell phone, printers, digital cutting tools, quilt design software, embroidery software, digital fabric printing services and the sewing, quilting and embroidery machines that make them all possible. You will design and create small projects perfect for your sewing adventures. No experience or machine needed to participate in the workshop. Project kit and lunch provided.

Its not too late to join us! Bluebird Quilt Studio QUILTING CONFIDENCE ACADEMY STARTS TODAY AT 1 p.m.

Here's what Robin Lindquist, a Bluebird sewing sister and fledgling graduate of last month's quilting confidence academy had to say about our workshop:

"The Quilting Confidence Academy was fantastic! It was so intensive, so packed with essential info and you did such a good job explaining it all. It was so well planned, I still can't get over it. Taking your course was one of the best things I've ever done. Thank you! -Yours, Robin"

Thanks Robin for the high five. I love teaching the class.

If want to join us, bring your machine, a prepared quilt sandwich and an open mind. YES, YOU CAN LEARN TO FREE MOTION QUILT. We will give you 20% today's class or the series if you join us today at 1. Call 208-467-4148 to join us.

Thanks again Robin. I look forward to seeing you special "awesome sauce" free motion quilting in you upcoming projects.
Sew love in every stitch,
I have one of the "Pieceful Nights" patterns, but have never started on it. How does your BOM work? Will you be using a similar colorway to the one shown on the pattern?
Hey! Now that I have this darling round tuffet, I keep thinking how cool it would be to have seasonal slip covers for it but as you know I am challenged in the area of being able figure out measurements for things. Any ideas on the size of circle of fabric I would need to to make an elastized cover for my tuffet? Carol Allen
