Easy Flip and Sew Placemats

I've got a new pattern ready to go to print. Easy Flip and Sew Placemats features placemats made using Soft and Stable.

However, I'm having a hard time deciding on a cover. I'd love your opinion!

Bright and bold in red and yellow?

or classic in blue and white?

Leave a comment by Saturday, February 16, with your thoughts. We'll pick one name from the comments here and on my facebook page.

The lucky winner will receive the hot-off-the-press pattern and a ByAnnie's Soft and Stable Project Pack with four die-cut placemat pieces.

Quilter's Calendar

I just learned about a great new service and wanted to share the information with you. If you know the program chair at your quilt guild or another guild, please share this.

The Quilter’s Calendar is a brand new website that connects quilters and guilds with quilt teachers, using an easily searchable online calendar.

Instead of having to search through every quilt teacher’s website, looking for opportunities to book that teacher or attend a class, quilters and guild members can use the calendar, which is searchable by state or province, to see quilt teachers that are scheduled in their state/province or nearby.

Guilds can then contact the teacher to book them to their guild, sharing expenses between guilds. That means less expenses and more opportunities for classes for guilds and their members.

Quilters can easily see what events, classes, retreats and shows are happening in their state, month by month.

Teachers can submit their teaching engagements for free, and by being visible on the calendar they can enjoy higher attendance and increase their opportunity to receive “piggy back” teaching engagements.
