Welcome to Spring!

Welcome to Spring in East TN!  Pic is the view from our deck. If you're ever in the area and have time, call and stop by Quilter's Pantry and enjoy the view as well as the quilts and other things I may be making! 

We welcome spring with temps in the low 80's today. Feels so wonderful. I look at all the sweaters in my closet and realize it's time to put them away. Time for the lighter weight clothes. Time for some to switch out the quilts on the beds to spring patterns.

It's also a great time to get those quilt tops that are piling up in your sewing area/closet and send them to us to longarm for you. While you are busy out in the garden, enjoying the spring temps and sun, planting the garden, playing with the kids, enjoying this time of year, you can have your quilts being finished in time for sending to loved ones for birthdays, new births, even in plenty of time for Christmas, or using yourself.   

I know some of you are still attempting to dig out of snow that is piling up. So it's still 'need a quilt' time. We're here year 'round for all of you.

While we wait on your quilt tops, we are busy making more legal pad organizers, baby bibs and preparing for a show March 31st. And then we prepare for a quilt show April 27 & 28th. We still have time to work on your quilt tops so don't hesitate in sending them. Check out our web site for details. Or send me an email.

We are also busy making a quilt for a local group organizing a Relay for Life/American Cancer Society event being held May 12th. I designed a quilt for this occasion and with the help of a couple of other ladies we are working on getting it created. It will be done in plenty of time so show to you as well as for them to have it as a silent auction to raise money for this wonderful cause.  Someday we will have a cure. Someday we won't need to have these events. Someday our grandkids or great grandkids will may say, "Thank you for all you did to raise money for the cure we have." 

For today - go out and make it a good day.
