Quilting News….

first, I'm very surprised that I didn't read this sooner or that any other quilter might have mentioned this, but Laurel Burch died on September 13. Very sad news for the quilt world. Read more here: and her website:

second, this weekend LQS hosted Quilt Pink. I'm very disappointed that even when we had advertised it as a shop participant, not one customer came in to make a block. The shop is accepting 12 1/2" unfinished blocks until the end of October though. And from what I understand we had only a few people last year who showed up, but had enough blocks coming in from customers outside of the weekend to make up 4 lap quilts for donation. It's a worth while cause, only takes an hour to whip up a 12" block and pop it into the mail - we all have pink/white stash we can use. Please consider donating a little time for a very good caused.


  1. When dom you need the block/s by? I could pop one in the mail with your PIF (when I get that made)

    I arrived at the LQS ready to make blocks and found out that I was the first one that showed up to make blocks. So sad. I did spend some money since 10% was being donated.
