Charming Baby Log Cabin Kit Contest

This is the first of "surprise" prizes that will be available to Project Linus of East TN volunteers that visit the blog. If you are a quilter and want to make a quilt for Project Linus, let me know by July 31st. I will enter all entries in a random drawing. The winner will receive a beautiful Charming Baby Log Cabin quilt kit (pattern and fabric) from Threaded Pear. To enter you can either leave a comment on this posting on the blog (be sure to include your full name) or send me (miller1219@aol.com) an email titled "blog contest" with your full name in it. I will email the winner back after July 31st.

Resources and Info

Quilters: Be sure to check out the Quilters Buzz blog at http://www.quiltersbuzz.com/ . They have a lot of good info and exciting things going on.

NixieChicks.com Superstore is a friend of Project Linus. Project Linus Members, email me (miller1219@aol.com) for more information on how to order fabric from this online vendor at a discount. Check out their fabrics at https://nixiechicks.com

Project Linus is going to a biannual (every other year) format for the national conference for coordinators. There will be regional meetings in the off years and volunteers will often be invited. We are planning a regional meeting in Asheville, NC in April 2010. Volunteers will be invited on Saturday. As soon as details and date is confirmed, I'll let you know.

Project Linus Patterns

I got to see and picked up lots of new patterns at the PL Institute (conference). These include:

1. Cat Walk Quilt
2. Instructions on English Paper Piecing
3. 5 Panel Fleece blanket (that is crocheted together)
4. Mystery Quilt Flowers and Hearts (this is designed to be sent out in 5 weeks so you don't really know what you are making until you are done - I'm sending it all at once!)
5. Boe Tie Quilt
6. Lotsa Pops Quilt
7. Fleece Square blanket (that is crocheted together)

If you are interested in any of these, send me an email (miller1219@aol.com) with "PL Patterns" in the title and then in the body of email indicate which patterns you want emailed to you. If you'd prefer to have them U.S. mailed, then send me a self addressed stamped envelope with a note indicating which patterns you want.
