Digitized Quilting Designs by Sharon Perry for Sew Kind of Wonderful!


Last January, Jenny and Helen had a chance to meet up with the very famous Sharon Perry and her friend, Susan Smith, in Everett, Washington at Jenny's new quilting studio for a few hours.  Sharon was doing a little world traveling and made a special trip to Washington to meet us in person and take some photos of our quilts with custom quilting that has become our signature style. :-)

Sharon has a great accent that makes everything she says sound even better, more creative and somehow more special ! :-)  I hope we, as Americans, sound like that to other nationalities, but I don't think we do.....hmmmmm.

After two days and many hours of laughter and quilt talk we said our goodbyes and promised to keep in touch with new ideas and designs.  Sharon's quilting designs,  (aka) House of Creations,  comes from her own creativity, from shapes in nature and other objects.  She truly is amazing with her ability to conceptualize a design and convert it to a digitized file!

Tuesday Tip - Sharpie Markers and Squaring Up Blocks

Once again, a sharpie marker is so very useful and quite satsfying! :)

We recommend keeping a sharpie marker handy to place important square up marks on your QCR, QCRMini and square up rulers.

Place a small dot on your rulers at the square up mark's indicated in each of our patterns. 

We are using the blocks from each ruler's free table runner patterns, as examples.

These Sharpie marks will help you find those square up points easier.  

These Sharpie marks come of easily with a little rubbing alcohol and a tissue. 

Happy Quilting! :)

3 Day Weekend Sale and Market update

Yes! This past month has been BUSY!!

But before we recap we want to first mention our up coming SALE this 3 day weekend.  So mark your calendar, the SALE begins this Saturday! 

We began our month with an awesome show and classes at HMQS! Jenny's daughter, Brittany, came to help us and to add some young, gorgeous and vibrant energy!

We had a great time and a lot of success in the classes we taught and met some amazing ladies!

In between HMQS and Quilt Market, we had time to go home for a few days, re-group with our families, then come right back to Salt Lake for Market.  

Jenny brought her AWESOME husband, Jared, to help build our amazing booth! We simply kept referring to him as Muscles! haha! We couldn't have done it without him!! 

We were VERY happy with how the booth came together! It met every one of our expectations!! :)

We also had some very amazing talent visit our booth! Well, looky there... Tula came to visit and watch a demo! Very cool!! :)

We were thrilled to see our Persimmon quilt made up in gorgeous green in the Superior Threads booth! Awesome!

Our 'Persimmon' pattern can be found in our newest book, One Wonderful Curve.

We love spending time together at these shows.  It might even be our favorite thing about it all!

Yes...caught taking selfies!! 

These shows in Salt lake provided us with the perfect opportunity to spend time with family! Catching up with cousins, parents, children and siblings.  The best! :)

Happy Quilting!!
