Throughout 2019 –

This project started in January 2019. The project involves two monthly Gatherings: A Daytime Gathering and an Evening Gathering.

The Daytime participant will choose, over the year from the book: “Extraordinary Log Cabin Quilts by Judy Martin (2013) Crosley-Griffith Publishing Company, Inc and the Evening participant will choose quilt patterns selected from: “modern neutrals, A fresh look at Neutral Quilt Patterns” by Amy Ellis.

We will be updating this BLOG once in awhile – and, as our Gathering projects have a short-lives (for now: Through the calendar year 2019), perhaps this BLOG helps us all interact.

We look forward to hearing from you and to your joining us in the Gatherings once a month at Bernina World of Sewing in Raleigh.

To participate, it is intended that you have purchased at Bernina World of Sewing the book involved with this project and, as well, the fabric for the projects used during this Gathering was purchased at Bernina World of Sewing.

    Hello – (From the Webmaster)
    We have started this Weblog with the intent of providing the Gathering participants with a “sounding board” for their use.

    Please remember that all Weblog entries are audited by me – however, this Weblog is NOT monitored by the store’s staff. Any technical questions, etc. are not meant for store’s-staff members: The Gathering is not a class – and, this Weblog is not a place to ask store staff questions!

    Normally, you would start a “Reply” thread using the “Leave a Reply” box at the bottom of this Web page. Alternatively, you just click on the Reply button at the bottom of some existing entry.

    Some reminders:
    – To place a photo related to your efforts worked-on for the Gathering project, just send an eMail to me with the picture attached/included. I will figure out where you intend the photo for your particular Comment.
    – Contact me by eMail if you have any problems / concerns with ANYTHING related to the Weblog. Thank you.

    I wish you a GREAT 2019.

    Good luck with your projects and
    Regards,
    David – Webmaster at Bernina World of Sewing

    January, 2019 and Throughout 2019

    Hi, everyone!

    I am glad that you found the BLOG. To make this work, it would be great if once in awhile you make a comment here or send in a photo for the BLOG. This way, we will all be “kept up” with each other’s progress – and problems/successes!

    Both the Daytime and the Evening Gatherings will last throughout the calendar year 2019.

    The Daytime Gathering participant will select quilts from the book: “Extraordinary Log Cabin Quilts” by Judy Martin (2013) Crosley-Griffith Publishing Company, Inc and the Evening Gaherers will choose quilt patterns selected from: “modern neutrals, A fresh look at Neutral Quilt Patterns” by Amy Ellis.

    To participate in this Gathering, you must be signed up at the store (Bernina World of Sewing). Space is limited!

    We will have the Evening Gathering on the second Monday evening of each month and the Daytime Gathering on the third Tuesday morning of each month through the end of the 2019.

    I wish you some exciting / enjoyable sewing time and projects during the year!

    Sonja

    We had busy sessions with lots of project fabrics cut and neatly sorted into plastic bags! Of course (for the evening Gathering), the new Jason Yenter quilt (a contribution to the evening’s work efforts) on the design wall was a star of the evening. The Daytime’s session had a small-number of participants this month: Yet, getting started with the 2019 LC projects while also doing some extra-project-work: A full day!

    A busy opening session for both the Evening and the Daytime Gatherings. A fine start, with project/fabric selection dominating the work and discussions. It will be fun, interesting and a pleasure to see everyone’s efforts come forth as the year moves along. Thank you, in advance!

    I am adding my BLOG-type comments, here — knowing, of course, discussions and opinions, etc. are more numerous at our Gathering sessions — however if this BLOG approach helps us in-between Gathering sessions: Great.
    See you at the Gatherings!

    As I started this Gathering quilt I considered different options – simply putting chosen colors in different places. Interesting results, eh?
