Hi everyone,

I've been busy working on the quilt run quilt. Busy making store samples, and busy working on some scrap strip quilts. But...next week Thor has to audit a mill in Mississippi, and I am going with him. We'll be about 2 hours from New Orleans in a town called Brookhaven.

Jolly Roll Practice Race
10:00 am

This could be the quickest quilt top you'll ever make -- your task is to turn one jelly roll (forty 2-1/2" strips) into a quilt as quickly as you can. A jelly roll makes a cool 48" x 64" quilt. Each one is unique even if two people use the same jelly roll. (Or use up leftover strips from other projects think stashbuster).
Prize for the winner!!
Entry Fee $10; includes pattern, race snack, and water.

Hidden Wells
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

A Fantastic quilt that goes together easily and makes good use of an odd collection of fabric stripss. It is important to select at least one fabric with contrast or sparkle in order to highlight the design.

Happy Quilting!
