I have met Susan several times…mainly at the Quilt Shows at home.
Susan is the owner of ‘A Threaded Needle’ which is an online fabric shop located on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. Susan always has a wonderful booth at our local shows and it is always filled with yarn dyed Japanese fabrics and lovely Japanese quilts hanging…I wrote about her HERE after visiting her booth a few years ago!
Of course I signed up for ‘A Threaded Needle’ Newsletter…and I have been drooling over her Backyard Birds series that she is working on! (Her newsletters are very informative…there is always a lesson to be learned…tons of inspiration and eye candy…it’s so much more than a Newsletter!)
In her last few Newsletters, Susan has been showing us how to applique using yarn dyed fabrics…and the Backyard Birds pattern! STUNNING!
Well guess what I found at JoAnn’s last week…and using a coupon I got it for practically nothing!! It followed me HOME!
And here’s a picture of all the blocks inside this wonderful pattern!
Yup…it was meant to be! Thanks, Susan for your inspiration, knowledge and lessons!
If you don’t get ‘A Threaded Needle’ newsletters then you are REALLY missing out! Go HERE to sign up! AND no, I am not on commission, just letting you know about a wonderful wealth of knowledge…for FREE! Learn how to make a clutch purse, a snap purse, a pincushion or a Sashiko stitched cushion…or a runner using the Backyard Birds pattern! Susan is a wealth of knowledge…why not tap into her!
There, that’s my post for today! Hope you quilters from back EAST have warmed up…I did send some sunshine your way to help melt some of that snow! Spring is on it’s way…REALLY it is!
Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Stitching!~P
