Are you getting excited?

Its getting closer, just a few more days before the kickoff of our brand-new program: 

A L P H A B E T   S O U P

If you haven't heard, ALPHABET SOUP is a super cool new Block-of-the-Week program developed for the Southwind Inspiration Community and registration is open for a limited time only.  ALPHABET SOUP starts on Superbowl Sunday and this is how it works:

After you sign up, you will get a welcome letter with more details, then a fun letter pattern is delivered right into your email inbox every Sunday.  Something to look forward to just like the Sunday paper.  Make sure that is in your address book, so your email is not diverted.

These letters are not just ordinary quilt blocks, they are a great way to express yourself and say whatever you want right on your quilt!

You will want to collect all the letters and numbers.  Spell out a name, birthday or special message.  Two sizes of letters give you flexibility to spell smaller in the border, or make an entire quilt using large letters.  Just take a look at the cute Alphabet Quilt below, or see more ideas in the sidebar!

You can sign up for
ALPHABET SOUP  for the introductory price of just $39.95, that is about 50 cents per pattern.

Register Here!
This is your opportunity to be part of the fun!  Feel free to share this newsletter with your quilting friends, there is a convenient forward button at the top of the email.

I have started a special ALPHABET SOUP Facebook Group, which will go live on Sunday and I will post the link to it in the first mailing.  This group is a forum to share and discuss projects made with these fun letters and even more alphabet examples, so the more participants the more fun we will have.

If you have signed up already - thank you! Your first letter pattern will come to your inbox this coming Sunday along with a link to participate in the Facebook Group if desired.

Collect all the Letters to Play and Create your Personal Messages!

Welcome to my Quilt Along - introduction

Welcome to our first Quilt Along! Join the fun and l et me teach you how to make my quilt:  Spinning Wheels.   See how easy it is to make a curved quilt all while sewing straight seams using Peeled-Back Patchwork. I designed the Quilt Along so we can work on a different part of the quilt every day.  I have allowed time for everyone to catch up before I post the next step.   Best of all you can use your scraps .   The majority of the pieces needed are 2-1/2" squares, which you may have already cut or you can easily cut from pre-cuts;  strips, charms, and even 10" squares. Click here for your List of Materials and Supplies: I will post the cutting instructions tomorrow (19 Mar 2020) at 8:00am EST  Piecing and sewing instructions for each day will be on my blog at 8:00am EST, starting Monday, March 23 and every morning thereafter until completion.   Join me on Facebook live 10:00am EST tomorrow to give you a short introduction, talk about fabric and supp
