Hello Supernova Swap Participants. Guess what, we are now 86 participants strong!
If you wanted to participate, and haven’t gotten a match yet, please email me.
For everyone who is already knee-deep in the swap, how is your fabric selection going?
Sandra and I cordially invite you to upload your gorgeous fabric selections to our FlickR group and to Instagram (#supernovaswap). C’mon upload photos today. We all need a little quilty inspiration and color therapy.
As a sidenote, I’d like to host a Linky party so we can hop to each others’ fabric posts, but it seems WordPress.com doesn’t allow that (anybody else know for sure?)
Here’s the link again to Lee’s original instructions for each step of the entire process of the Supernova, from fabric selection, to planning the blocks and cutting to final construction.
As we all begin cutting and piecing, we may have questions or thoughts to share. Please use this blog post to ask for help from our awesome community and post answers or ideas. That way, we all know where to go to communicate and log information about our experiences making this quilt.
Jo from Riddle and Whimsy has posted a very helpful addendum to Lee’s original cutting instructions: Jo and Sara from Smiles Too Loudly are making a rainbow Supernova. Their quilt will feature different background fabrics in each block. Jo found a way to tailor the cutting instructions to her needs, and has posted it for all of us who may find it helpful.
And congrats to Nancy and Gail who have finished their blocks ahead of schedule and sent them off to one another along with their 25 Things You Don’t Know About Me lists. You two are now our leading experts. We can’t wait to see your blocks.
That reminds me, Sandra and I will all post pictures of our blocks after we are sure our partners have received them in the mail. We don’t want to spoil any lovely surprises. But I will let you and your partner decide when you would like to upload your pictures….
On another note…
If you’re on Facebook, would you please give us a little love and take a second to LIKE it for us, share it with your quilting friends…. and perhaps post some of your projects?
Late Night Quilters Club is a group for quilters around the world who find themselves cutting, stitching, basting and pressing deep into the wee small hours of the morning.
It doesn’t matter if you’re modern or traditional, if you use a DSM, long-arm, or hand-stitch. We are Late Night Quilters, and we must stick together. We are the quilters who are forced to practice our craft by moonlight, whether it be children, those pesky jobs, or significant others who demand our attention from dawn to dusk.
At the Late Night Quilters Club, you can share your beautiful pictures and patterns, ask others’ opinions, commiserate with others about the crappy lighting in your studio (wait, maybe that’s just me), or just tell funny stories about your life.
But don’t worry, if you happen to be lucky enough to stitch in daylight, we’re still happy to have you! So please, join us today!
Thank you to all of you who have reached out to me via comments or emails. I enjoy connecting with you every day. It is such a pleasure to meet you all through our shared love of quilting.
