#whatsonthesewingmachinetoday

Last night I was able to work on tension and do some practice long arming on my new/used Nolting Hobby Quilter 16 aka "Miss Violet". She is a stunning beauty and I am thrilled to finally get going on working with her... The video my husband mad that I posted on my quilting page on Facebook, makes me look very tense however I am incredibly calm and relaxed. So I will be doing a weekly video on my quilting page on Facebook called #whatsontheframetodaysally click Sally's Quilting Corner Sew It Quilt It Love It!  to view my first of many videos and stay tuned for weekly videos. Feel free to make comments or suggestions. I feel we all learn from those who are more experienced.
 
Thanks for visiting and Sew It Quilt It Love It!!!

A Quilting We Will GO!!!

Good Morning Quilters!

I am happy to announce that I will be offering classes beginning in September. I have a variety of classes to offer for beginners up to advanced quilters. Learn fun easy projects with ton of different techniques. If you are interested in learning fun projects with easy techniques that won't intimidate you, let me know. I want to hear from you. If there is something on the list that I am not offering and you want a class with your group, let me know. We can arrange a class around a that technique. Stay tuned!! for pictures of samples I will be posting of some of the techniques I can teach you.

And here's one better my quilt peeps, I am researching the opportunity to hold a weekend quilt retreat. So of my quilt peeps here I'd like to see who is interested. Simply reply to me what time of year you would like to play, or maybe you want to meet more than once a year, and if I found a hotel that provided continental breakfast would that be help. I'm searching two or three hotels that would be a decent price, great lighting, and that would be spacious so that people who have larger projects to work on can spread out. How about an area special for technique learning. Would you like to have the room to bring snacks? How about An area to layer your quilts for those Free Motion Quilting on their domestic machines. I would also like to know if learning a technique and if raffles interest you. Who doesn't like learning a new technique or winning goodies. Free is always good!!! If you are interested please comment with time of year and special interests you might like to learn. I would like to open this to anyone who is serious about joining in on the fun. I also can arrange for to have a nice dinner at a local restaurant that maybe can be built into the price of the cost of the weekend. Would that interest you... Share your interest...Please let me know. Who wouldn't want to visit the Cape in the Spring, Summer or Fall...

May Veteran Block Drive


Good Morning Quilters,

 I want to share with you all the block for May. We are well on our way to getting quilt tops put together. You all have done such a wonderful job with the blocks you have made so far. Blocks for March and April are due and if you have participated in the block drive and have blocks sending them would be greatly appreciated. I would love to put the blocks you have into a quilt. So if you have these two months worth of blocks please send my way. If you have a problem or questions you know how to get in touch with me. Northcott Fabric was gracious and sent an entire bolt of fabric for the backing of these quilts.

 
These are blocks from Laurie one of the quilters who have made these fantastic blocks.

 
I am gearing up to release May's Block and I hope you all join me in making these blocks.
This coming month the block is smaller and is a we bit of a challenge. Like I haven't done that to you all before. 
 
This coming month is two blocks you choose which one you would like to make. The soldier is going to be put with other blocks that have been made and the second block is called
 Drunkards Path and will be used to make stripes for a flag. Let me know if you want to join in on the fun and which block you wish to make.
 
 
 


 I am looking for 60 of them in total. I will be providing like always the fabric to make these blocks and the directions I promise I will make the direction more detailed. Cross my heart and hope to well you know what I mean!

So with this month's block since there is more blocks we have longer to do them. I think this could be for the month of May and June. Blocks will be due end of June.

If you want to participate with May and Junes block please connect with me via Facebook or message me on my business page at Sally's Quilting Corner Sew It Quilt It Love It .

You Gotta Check this Out

TGIF Quilters!!! Happy Friday to all my friends out there in Quilt Land. I have to share with you a wonderful blog with an amazing give-away. My friend Linda Stewart Pearl who is super fun and amazingly creative has a give-away on her website. Hop on over to One Circle Quilting
and check this give-away out.

 
I met Linda through social media and she has given me a ton of great advice. Her knowledge is extraordinary and I have learned a lot from her... Here's a little bit about Linda:
 
Linda has been a quilt maker for the better part of 20 years, working in traditional patterns and designs for most of that time. While working full time, and being a wife to Mike and a mom to Chris and Andy, she fit in quilting as time allowed while raising her family. She found companionship in the membership she held in two guilds during that time frame, and has to this day a particular affinity for Challenges.
 
Linda offers a vast variety of services. She can steer you in the right direction with Lectures, Workshops, Shop Hops, Quilt Show and Festivals, and also offers many other services. Check out this link for all that Linda has to offer.
Invite you to follow Linda's blog and to like her Facebook Business Page just click onto the two links to like either one or both... The Patchwork Pearl and One Circle Quilting.
 
So check her out and see what Linda Stewart Pearl wart is all about. I am very happy to have met her and glad to call her my friend... Thanks Linda for all the hard work you do for everyone...

April PTSD Block Drive for Veteran Quilts

Hello Block Drive members, I have news to share. April blocks have begun to come in and the two designs I have are just amazing! Mary Lou Eustace and Margaret Travis blocks have come in. Mary Lou had hers arrive first so she is the grab bag surprise winner. She has received a Layer Cake bundle of Kate Spain's "Good Fortune Fabric and an autograph copy of May issue of American Quilter Magazine where I had my latest quilt published. Congrats to her for doing such a beautiful job...



Mary Lou made four blocks 6" each and sewed them together to make a 24" square block.
Her design is quite unique and will work beautifully with the panel.

Here are Margaret Travis' Blocks that have applique' circles to it... What a great block. Thank you Margaret for doing such a fantastic job...
 
I hope to see every one's blocks by the end of the month and can hardly wait to post all the pics... Thank you all again for doing such a great job for such a good cause....

Guess Who got Published Again!!!

As the months carried on through this very long winter we had here on Cape Cod I became more and more anxious upon the up coming publishing of this May issue of the American Quilter Magazine.



May 2015 Issue

So I was thoroughly surprised when a friend of mine congratulated me for my recent publishing of my quilt in this month issue. I am tickled pink as I have been waiting with baited breath for this issue to be published and available.
 
 
A Midsummer Nights Dream is one of those quilts I designed two years ago and decided to try to be published again in a national magazine. With much support from many in the quilting community I submitted this and sure enough here it is.
 
 
 
See how very pretty this quilt is I have been dying to post photos of this quilt so I am now going to post a variety of photos. I sure hope you like this quilt as much as I do and please go to your local news stand to pick up your copy of May 2015 issue of American Quilter as all of the projects in this issue are just stunning. Congrats to all the contributors.
