This coming year 2016 is going to be a great one! I am totally excited for the line up that the quilt group has– designers and companies.
Today you will be introduced to the Quilt Designers that we have so far….there will be a few more coming and they will be introduced later in 2016.
To let you in on what this is all about, I can tell you have a questionable huh? look going on. Let me begin with a little back story.
In January of 2015 the Quilt-group.com was started. It’s made up just like it is happening in 2016.
There are guest designers every month (they are sharing a pattern only with the group- it’s not sold anywhere else. We get it first!). They also share a little bit about themselves in an interview as well as chat along with the members in the facebook group.
There are exclusive projects in the group designed by Patchwork Posse (which is me). Those included a few based on the orphan quilt blocks as well as some just fun projects with no reason or rhyme to them.
During 2015- There was a Mystery Quilt, a Sew Along that featured embroidery in the center and 3-D quilt blocks. There were also some giveaways and Swaps- we did two- a zipper pouch and a mini quilt.
Besides the patterns though the quilt-group offers a community where no matter where you live, you can participate. The patterns are all in one spot….easy to find and then save to your own computer. You can sew on your own time and share with the other members worldwide.
This was started because I found that my schedule didn’t line up with quilt groups that met in my own community. I would miss things, miss patterns, miss chatting with everyone and the show and tell. This was upsetting and felt like I couldn’t be alone in this.
So- the quilt group was built. I also love the idea of sharing other talented designers you might not find on your own and introduce you to them and their talent.
Today let me introduce the talent behind the online quilt group. I will be joined by some super awesome designers. Some I know personally and some I have been an admirer of from afar. Either way- I’m so excited for this group.
Each brings their own personal touch and expertise. We have a modern quilter, uber talented machine quilter, hand stitcher and embroiderer and a great mix of ideas, styles and designs. No matter where you are- at the beginner end or the expertise end, there will be something here for you.
Their patterns will be a secret until their month– but you will not be disappointed. Plus, almost all of the other patterns this year will not be a secret, so you can handle these being a fun surprise.
