So, we’re here! The Pellon® crew has descended upon Kansas City and we’re getting ready to make the booth look marvelous. For those just joining us, we’re here for the Spring International Quilt Market and we couldn’t be happier. A weekend full of oooo-ing and aaaah-ing over countless gorgeous creations, chit-chatting with designers, shop-owners and industry folk, and doing our best to continue spreading the good word on Pellon® Products.
I’ll be taking as many pictures as time will allow and will fill you all in on the happenings at the end of each day. That way, those who aren’t able to attend, but really really wanted to, may have the chance to live vicariously;)
With all that said, I couldn’t think of a better project to feature this week than the A Perfect Reunion Quilt Along by the talented Darlene Christopherson (also here with us in KC!). This quilted beauty features bird-themed applique 8″ blocks alternated with striking blue & white blocks and finished off with a striking thick red binding. It is sure to be a favorite for many. All blocks with full instructions will be fully available on our website, so you’re welcome to jump in any time! As usual, we’d love to see photos of your finished quilts and you’re welcome to post images on our Facebook page to share with the community. Have fun with this one and happy quilting!
Which block is your favorite?
