Hello Quilters,
Here is a reminder about some dates to save and pictures from our last “Show and Tell” event.


Lone Star with a scrappy border.

Hello Everyone, 
I finished another quilt top.  Like several others things I have worked on, this one was at least 20 years old.  (That’s the silver lining of being at home.  I have finished some things.)  The star part was all finished.  All it needed was a border.  In the bag, I found random fabrics that were in the quilt and 4 pieced stars.  I cut the fabrics into 8 1/2″ strips, and then cut those strips into random lengths.  I stitched some strips around the blocks to get them big enough and then randomly stitched everything back together into border lengths.  I think it turned out just fine.  Another unfinished project becomes finished quilt top.

We had our June “Show and Tell” event last weekend.  It was a nice event.  Not only did we have new quilts, but several people brought old quilts and told us the stories behind them.  It was a nice way to connect the past and future with the talents of so many quilters.  We will do some more “Show and Tell” events during the All Carolina Shop Hop dates in the fall.  (It will be cool enough to be outside by then.)

We are located off of I-40, midway between Mocksville and Statesville, NC.  Call for directions. Join us for a day in the country.

Call or text Cindy – 704-376-2531 if you would like to order anything,  or make an appointment to shop. Taxes and shipping will be added to orders. Remember, we do not have a shopping cart on our website.  If you need us for anything, call and make a shopping appointment.

Blueberry Picking

Late June and July means it’s time to pick blueberries at our cousin’s farm just outside of Statesville, NC.  Plan to join us for a day in the country picking berries yourself, or if you want us to pick blueberries for you, we can arrange that also.  More details later.

Shopping Time

You can always make an appointment for any time that suits you by calling Cindy at the number above.  We’re available almost any time. We would love to see you.  Call us if you need directions.  We are located off I-40 between Statesville and Mocksville, NC.

Barn Quilt Painting

We took a barn quilt class at Mary Mae’s – A Southern Mercantile.
Owner Connie Edwards could not have been nicer.  Her husband, Mr. Dale teaches the classes.  Her shop is located at 310-B South Salisbury Ave., Spencer, NC 28159.  704.431.4875.  marymaesmercantile@gmail.com.  The class we scheduled for July 14, 2021 is full.  So they graciously agreed to add another class on Thursday, July 15, 2021.  We invite you to join us.    They have other regularly scheduled classes as well. If you would like to join us, give her a call or search for her on Facebook.  All the prices are there.  Mr. Dale primes the wood and has your design drawn on the base. After you finish painting, he applies the sealer, and you pick it up the next week.  There are lots of choices for your design.  All you have to do is tape and paint.  We did 3′ x 3′ barn quilts.  I would suggest starting a little smaller for your first one.  They have all the paint, brushes, etc. that you need to complete your project.

.Upcoming Classes 

Yes, I think we can start classes again.  Yippee!!!  Save these dates.
Friday, July 23 or Saturday, July 24
Friday, August 20 or Saturday, August 21
Friday, September 24 or Saturday, September 25

This is March Madness.  Class dates are Friday, July 23 OR Saturday,
July 24, 2021.  We hope you are ready to get back to classes too.

This was the quilting class we had on the schedule before the world blew up.  Traditional piecing techniques will be covered.  We will make one block in class.  Make this quilt scrappy or planned.  Just need to brush up on some techniques ?  Just make one block in class.  You don’t have to stress over a whole quilt.

In the afternoon, Cindy will do a demo for her Jack’s Chain quilt.

Class starts at 10 am and finishes about 4 pm.  The classes will be held at Cool Spring Methodist Church, 1902 Mocksville Rd, Cleveland, NC—that is Hwy. 64 about 8 miles East of Statesville, and is easily accessible from either I-77 or I-40. As you know, eating lunch is an important part of the day.  Bring a sandwich or a covered dish and we’ll provide sides, chips, desert and tea.  There is always plenty to share. July means fresh tomatoes, Duke’s mayonnaise, and white bread.

To register for the class, call Cindy Page, 704-376-2531 to reserve your space, then mail checks payable to The Quilter’s Gallery to 224 Woodleaf Road, Cleveland, NC 27013. This class is $38.00.  Payment is required at the time of registration to hold your space in the class. A supply list/cutting instructions and directions to the venue will be emailed to you upon registration.

Bring something for show and tell. If you need a tractor trailer truck to get all your quilts here, that will be fine.

Hope to see you in July,
