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

A Gathering – Pattern designed by Barbara Persing – $30.00 for the pattern.

Hello Everyone, 
This is the quilt Cindy has been working on.  As you can see, it all about Gambel’s quail.  She had a good time picking out fabrics and especially loved appliquéing those tiny little feet.  It is a pattern.  Just let us know if you want one.

Laura Davies did a great job on the quilting.  I don’t know how much you can see, but she filled in with clouds, cactus and other desert motifs.

I didn’t finish any quilts, but I didn’t start any new quilts either. Worked on a few painting projects.  I did finish painting a chair that had been sitting there for 3 years.

Scroll to the bottom to see more photos from our last “Show and Tell” event.  We will do some more “Show and Tell” events during our classes and 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

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.  The berries are just starting to ripen so we’ll be picking very soon.  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.  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 ?  Then 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,

Quilt Show Photos

This is a vintage cross stitch quilt.
