With all the cold and dreary weather we have all endured over the last few months it is nice to have your spirits lifted with the thought of spring and of course summer soon to follow. I received a Raffle Quilt from Stumptown Quilters Guild out of Whitefish Montana a few days ago that just makes me smile every time I see it. Bright and cheery with the longing for the green grass that is hiding below. As I am sure we are all ready for spring…..may this gorgeous quilt lift your spirits as well.

As our deadline gets closer for our 25th Edition Cover Quilt Contest, the quilts start coming in almost daily! It has always amazed me the talent that each individual quilter shows on their masterpieces. The use of colors, fabrics, patterns and so on are truly awesome and will always be proof that no two quilts are the same!
I have included photos of the quilts that came in over the weekend for all to enjoy.
Annie’s Star Quilt Guild from California
Black Canyon Quilt Show from Colorado
Petunia City Quilters from Illinois
Keystone Quilters from Pennsylvania
I hope that all you quilters were able to get some free time on the 24th to visit the local quilt shops in your area. While scrolling through our Facebook page www.facebook.com/thequiltshopnavigatorevents on Friday I couldn’t help but notice tons of deals the Shops were offering over the entire weekend.
Keep busy throughout the week my friends…we all have a project we could finish up!
It’s been awhile since we have posted on our blog and we would like to say sorry out to our followers! We have been very busy around the office and we also have a new employee doing our social media. That would be me, Jennifer. Nice to meet you all!
We are in the middle of doing our Cover Quilt Contest for the upcoming 25th Editions which will go to print on April 1 and are valid for July-December 2015. I received a submission this morning from Creative Quilters’ Guild of Ellis County out of Texas. This is a stunning quilt with great use of many colors. Bright and cheery and makes one smile. We wish them luck in the contest.
