Behind The Scenes....

I've been busy ladies....

 The Guitar Man left me in kind of a mess....
so I have been spending 12 hours a day in the shoppe...
getting BOM's caught up.

Certain blocks sometimes take hours to put together...
such as these...
 You build fabric....
upon fabric...
(Notice the Color Chart...this is always done when I am in the process of designing anything.)
upon fabric....
See the labels??
My beloved customers love me for this!
It's a job....
but so much easier for me to do...
than for them to have to figure out.
Especially in one like this...
when there is 16 different fabrics.
And more pieces...
Until finally...
they are packaged up 
and ready to send out!
Then comes pattern making time...
This block had 14 full pages!

So if anything....
I see ..
Guitar Man

No wonder he went to look for work elsewhere!!

Oh...and some of  you wanted to see the pic of this month's block.
It is actually the 9th month to Buttercream Summer
which is when all of the first 8 blocks are put together with 
checkerboards and fan blade blocks.

Happy Stitching!

  2. Yes, I often wonder how long it takes to put together these kits!! This looks like a wonderful one filled with such lovely fabric!! You done good!!

  3. Wow--you really put in the extra effort in assembling your kits. I haven't ever purchased kits, but I have tried to help friends figure out some they have bought. I can see they shop in the wrong places!
