prize-winning summer stitching
Last summer, I started the Summer Stitching Club, and I really didn't know what to expect. I do know that I didn't expect so many people to sign up and I didn't expect to continue it for all the other seasons and then move on to states. I was equally surprised (in the best way possible) to hear that club member Shelley made the mini quilt from last summer and submitted it in her local county fair. And won first place.
I felt like a proud mama asking her child to smile for a picture, and requested that she send me this pic with her blue ribbon. Well done, Shelley!
If you'd like to make a mini quilt like this, you can still register. It's no longer a live, weekly club, but instead, you'll get all of the patterns and instructions as an immediate download. Find out more here. (please note: I can't guarantee that you'll win a prize with your finished quilt...haha!)
Thanks, Shelley, for letting me share your success with the Wild Olive crew!
