The Supernova Friendship Quilt Block Swap

Stephanie Palmer is a quilter who grew up in New Jersey and now lives and blogs in Austin, Texas. She and a friend had a great idea of a way to make a beautiful quilt together– actually two identical quilts for two friends. They are making Lee Heinrich (of’s gorgeous Supernova quilt together and providing a quilt along with questions and games for friends to share together, whether the geographical distance between quilters is big or small.

Carolyn Friedlander workshop at Purl Soho

Hi Everyone! The MQG made us aware of this upcoming workshop. Several of us really enjoyed Carolyn’s class at Sewdown Nashville, so if you’re interested, it sounds like fun.
This spring Purl Soho welcomes guest teacher Carolyn Friedlander! Author of the upcoming sewing book, Savor Each Stitch, Carolyn will teach a workshop on Sunday, June 1st from 2-5pm at the New York City store. The basis of the class is Carolyn’s extraordinary quilt, “Aerial Grove”, a fascinating pattern that employs color theory and appliqué techniques. Work alongside this legendary quilter as she explains the inside workings of her process, sharing knowledge and hopefully some good laughs too. You’ll also have the opportunity to purchase Savor Each Stitch before the official publication date! Some sewing experience required.
You can see Carolyn’s gorgeous project and read more about the workshop at this link:
If you’d like to sign up for the class please give a call during normal business hours:
M-F 12-7; Sat & Sun 12-6
