Stitch the weekend away with me this March at a special online Quilting Conference!
Hi guys! I have something kinda fun to share with you today. I don’t know about you but I’ve always wanted to attend a quilt retreat or conference. The idea of spending hours stitching with a bunch of like-minded people always sounded so fun to me!
However, my schedule right now doesn’t allow me too much time to travel to a lot of conferences/retreats (kids… gotta love em *wink*).
I’m excited to announce today that two of my best “blogging” buddies have put together an online quilting conference, called the ModBee. You can attend in your jammies and stitch at your own pace.
The conference will be live streamed to you during each class, and you’ll be able to go back and view the classes later (for up to a year) in case you miss one.
I’m going to be teaching my Star Bright Quilt Pattern.
It’s a great pattern for people with a little bit of quilting experience want to move into something more detailed than just simple patchwork squares.
This quilt is designed to go with my Let’s Be Mermaids line of fabric. The squares in the center of the star blocks are the same size as the squares in the panel print of the fabric line.
Here you can see a mock-up of it. You can, of course, stitch the quilt up with ANY fabric that you’d like. FYI: You do supply your own materials
If you want to use the Mermaids fabric you can find it at many local shops and online (I know that Fat Quarter Shop has the line now, including the panels).
I’ve got more info about how to sign up for the conference below, including a list of the other teachers, and a special coupon code for you to use!
