Quilt Like Crazy Newsletter #3 - Got Some Great New Fabrics IN!

Quilt Like Crazy

Hello, Happy Quilters!

Isn't it just natural that life becomes so daily?  It's been very busy in the shop here, but that also means that I haven't gotten my videos up left.  Busy doesn't necessarily translate to finished. Life never seems to go exactly as planned.  Be patient, it's all coming up VERY, VERY soon.

What's Coming Up??

In addition to our new online classes starting next month, we will be starting our first BOM (Block of the Month) program for beginners.  This will be a Beginner Mystery Block of the Month with a quilt project that is a wallhanging sized quilt approximately 27 1/2" x 31 1/2", perfect for beginners who want to build their skills block by block.  The fabric is all in and our kits are all put together.  The finishing kits will be available for purchase after the 11th month which will include borders, binding and a choice of backing fabric.  It's all VERY exciting.  I'm sorry I can't show you a picture of the finished quilt because it is a MYSTERY quilt!  Sign up now if you are an absolute beginner or if you just need a bit of a refresher.  This is the program for you!  But sign up soon because our seats are limited and it starts January 1st, 2020.  If you want to know more about our Block of the Month program, the guidelines can be found on our website here. Other new and shorter Blocks of the Month programs, will be unveiled throughout the coming new year and not all will be just for beginners, so keep watching!

We are looking to feature YOUR current projects on the front page of our website.  If you would like your quilt featured, send a picture with your name, city, state and a summary of your project to us at

Quilty Tip of the Week: 

If you have dark-colored fabrics, like red, blue, black, purples (and some greens), it's a good idea to give them a quick wash (without fabric softener or soap) BEFORE working with them as the colors can and sometimes will most likely bleed and some of them may shrink.  Never wash your pre-cuts, the pieces are relatively small and they can be damaged.  However, there is a product called Retayne that can help prevent or even stop bleeding, though this should not be used in a front-loading he machine.  I know that pre-washing is typically a controversial subject with quilters and while most of the time I don't pre-wash my fabrics, I will, with darker fabrics and batiks (which are known to bleed), definitely do a quick pre-wash.
