Shop Hop is almost here!


If you haven’t participated in Shop Hop before, you’ve missed out on a lot of fun. Each shop is unique, offering something that you won’t find in the others. Widen your horizons this year. As quilters, we love visiting different shops!

This year we will have 7 shops participating: Sunday Best Quiltworks in Ellerslie, Sew Much Fun in Columbus, A Scarlet Thread in McDonough, Hometown Quilts in Hogansville, Birdhouse Quilts in Byron, Couture Sewing Center in Macon, and Magical Stitches in Macon.

Our dates this year are Friday Feb. 14th thru Monday Feb. 17th. As usual, the shops will be open from 9:30am-6pm on Friday, Saturday, and Monday. On Sunday the shops will be open 1:00pm-4:00 pm.

Let me explain how it works: After a color palate is chosen, each shop is assigned two blocks with specific colors. We exchange our colors with each other, so that each shop will have the same focus colors in their blocks. Then each shop designs a quilt using these same colors. However, the design, background, sashing and borders for each quilt will be very different.

Each shop will have kits prepared for their 2 blocks. They include only the pattern and the focus colors. The customer can choose any background she or he prefers. Each shop will also offer kits for their version of the SHOP HOP QUILT.

All of the shops  are busy trying to get their quilts made but we will all have our quilts ready before Valentine’s Day. We will post a picture of our quilt as soon as possible.

We look forward to seeing you!
Linda

Lucky Seven BOM 2020


Our Lucky 7 BOM is a always a bargain! Pay $7 for your first block and get the next 11 for free when you come every month for our Saturday Sampler!  On the first Saturday of each month, we meet from 10 AM to 11 AM.  We have a doorprize, show and tell, refreshments and Lucky 7 - and something special is always on sale!You receive one ticket for the Saturday Sampler door prize drawing just for being present. And you receive an additional ticket for each show and tell you bring. It's FUN! Plan on joining us.
Our 2020 quilt is Hawaiian Applique!


This year, our blocks will be Hawaiian Appliqué and YOU will be creating your own color way each month! We'll give you two batik fat quarters each month (1 background and 1 applique fabric) and YOU get to CHOOSE which fabrics you want out of ALL the Batiks in the shop!
Please sign up for Lucky 7 BOM 2020 prior to Jan. 3rd.
This year we will ask you to complete a Registration form so we can hold fabric for you if necessary.  Registration Forms are available in the shop or you can print a Registration form HERE and bring in your completed form and $7 fee.
Here's How it Will Work...
  • At the January 4, 2020 Sat. Sampler meeting, pay $7 for your first Lucky 7 BOM block and you'll receive a Hawaiian appliqué pattern and two batik fat quarters (1 background and 1 applique fabric). 
  • We'll provide your first background and applique batiks. After that, you may choose between our light background, our dark background or a combination of 6 light/6 dark for your quilt. Your registration form will let us know if we need to reserve 12 fat quarters if you choose consistent background colors. 
  • After month 1, we will have your background fat quarter ready for you when you check in and you may pick your applique fat quarter from any batik in the shop!
  • The appliqué may be done by any method you choose: edges turned under and sewn by hand, fused and sewn on the raw edge, fused and zig-zagged, or  fused and blanket stitched by machine. ANYTHING GOES!
  • There will NOT be a finishing kit this year. Borders are optional and finishing methods are entirely up to you! We can't wait to see what you make! (We recommend you cut your blocks at 15 1/2". Your quilt will finish at 45" x 60" without borders and sashing and you will need 3 yards of backing fabric.)
You are not required to use our fat quarters if you have something at home that you would rather use. You can just pick up the free pattern each month and show us your completed block! It will still be $7 if you miss Saturday Sampler or fail to bring in your completed block from the previous month.

As always, as long as your block comes in on the first Saturday of each month, your next two Batik Fat Quarters and pattern will be FREE! If for any reason you are unable to bring in your block, you will be charged $7 for the next month’s pattern and fat quarter set.

We will post a video on the Lucky 7 page of our website very soon, describing how to transfer the designs to fabric and offering tips to make this a fun and different LUCKY 7 BOM!

So to sum it up, on the first Saturday of each month, we meet for Saturday Sampler from 10 AM to 11 AM. We have a door prize, show and tell, refreshments and Lucky 7 - and something special is always on sale! You receive one ticket for the Saturday Sampler door prize drawing just for being present. And you receive an additional ticket for each show and tell you bring. And this year, you'll be in charge of the look and feel of your Hawaiian Lucky 7 quilt!

Upcoming Lecture by JoAnn Camp October 5th, 3-5pm





The Artistic Journey of a Left Brained Quilter 

by JoAnn Camp
Lecture Fee $15
Sat. Oct. 5, 3-5pm
Everyone is invited to attend!


JoAnn began quilting after her retirement. Like most of us, her first quilts were traditionally pieced. Somewhere, somehow... she quickly realized that there is a whole world of other possibilities. Her inner artist was born! She now draws most of her inspiration from nature. (She will occasionally venture into portraits of family members.) 


JoAnn will be telling us her personal story. The baby steps she took when she first began. She will describe the techniques she uses to achieve the realistic shading and the painterly look of her quilts and speak about her inspiration and motivation behind the new projects she tackles.


She is way more humble than she should be. Her very 2nd quilt was accepted into a traveling show. 
Her work has now being purchased for display in public institutions, and she received a whopping 10 page spread in Art Quilting Studio Magazine!  You are guaranteed to enjoy her presentation!

Call the shop at 706-569-7744 to reserve
and pre-pay for your space.

New Way To Shop Our Website, Now LIVE on Square!


Our patterns, templates, stencils, kits and quilts are now available on our website through Square! (Yes, they were all available on our website before, but this is WAY BETTER!)

You will still visit our website (shown below).
https://www.sundaybestquiltworks.com/

Our original website

But now, when you click the "SHOP" tab in the navigation menu at the top of the page, it will automatically link you to our new Square website for shopping and gift card purchases.

Screen shot of our new SQUARE site shopping format


It looks a little different than our former website pages, but Square allows us to share more photos and additional product details, as well as images of the full supply lists for our patterns. And you can scroll through all of our products without having to click back and forth between pages!

We are super excited about this upgrade and we will continue to add our existing inventory of finished quilts, kits, and assorted items as we move forward!

Other changes you will notice on our regular website include fewer pages (we merged some content in places) and more convenient tabs (no more searching for your favorites). You can now reach our Machine Quilting page and Tutorial page through the navigation menu at the top of each page. BONUS: We have several new tutorials planned and we will upload them as soon as get them ready!

We also added a Gift Card tab to the navigation menu that will take you directly to our Square site to purchase E-Gift cards which you can email directly to the recipient. You can always buy plastic gift cards in-store any time.

Screenshot of our Gift Card order page


The BEST part about this switch, is that you can now REDEEM our e-gift cards and plastic gift cards ONLINE! (Paper gift certificates may still be redeemed in-store.)

Check out the new Square shopping site for yourself here: https://squareup.com/store/sunday-best-quiltworks and let us know what you think!
