Dear Jane Shipshewana Retreat – Friday


Dang! I was going to be up early, do some stitching, swap the 3" blocks with the "Friday at 11" girls and be on my way to shop the town but when I saw over 811 emails in my inbox I had to pause.

Here's a quick note on the most asked about quilt from last night - Eldon

This quilt was also in one of the videos and when I get over to Lolly's in a few minutes I'll take a few more pictures for you but here's some info to help answer your questions.

The pattern is called Eldon. It was designed by Edyta Sitar from Laundry Basket Quilts. It's a nice big quilt measuring 86" x 86" so it's perfect for a queen size bed. The pattern alone is $11.00 but.................. I have to take back what I said last night in the video about my fabric stash. The blend of colors they used in the kit with the same values and careful attention paid to the variety of prints selected make the $135 kit a real value in my opinion. $135 for a queen size quilt, including the borders - no wonder the girls were grabbing them last night while I was talking and shooting video. The binding might be in there too, not sure.

For those of you who asked how to order - just call Lolly's at (800)773-2119 and Kris, Mike or any of the staff can help you.

Another had to grab thing last night was the book Women of Influence. It's a great book, wonderful reading and lots of nice quilt patterns. Not just a set of 12 blocks. Ask about that too.
