I want to personally welcome you to Quilted Bliss.  We are happy you are here to visit.We are continually working on making the website better and more user friendly as well as getting online store up and running.  I have wanted to use a galactic day but no one else wants to play. (42 hours from Men in Black).

We have many great things on the Agenda for the next year.   I use August - July as the year. We have traditionally had a local shop hop at the end of July, however, for 2015 the local shop owners decided not to do this.    For many years I would go to the Sister's Quilt Show in Sister's, Oregon.  The week before the show they would have quilt classes in Sister's and in Bend.  This was one of the greatest weeks of my year for quilting. It is where I first met Debbie Caffrey and enjoyed her great classes.  I usually would go with my friend Billie Lauder, who would also be teaching some classes.  After traveling back to Bend this May I envisioned doing the same here in Amarillo.  So check it out and come join the fun.  

Quilted Bliss is busy setting up their first ever Summer Camp for Quilters.  This will be a day camp from July 20 - August 1, 2015.  The shop will host  several great teachers.  I am busily working on the contracts with the teachers and the hotels.  The line-up so far includes Penny Sturgess, Debbie Caffrey; Nancy Eha; Gail Garber; Mary Lou Wiedman; and Carole Lyles Shaw.  Each instructor will teach 2 -3 days and have a trunk show one evening during the event.  It is not an event for you to come and stay for 2 weeks. (Although you are certainly welcome to do this.) It is designed to allow us to have some fun.  We are very excited.  We will have all details and prices and sign-up beginning sometime in October or early November.  

March 26 - 29 Karen Kay Buckley will be here for applique workshops.   We will have a trunk show and she will teach three classes.  One each for hand and machine applique then a combination class of both.  There will also be a trunk show.  Sign up will begin in September 2014.

September 2, 2014 we will hold an organizational meeting to establish a Modern Quilt Guild in Amarillo.  Please join us at 6:30 p.m. at the shop to get started.  The Modern Quilt Guild (MQG) defines modern quilting as follows:  Modern quilts are primarily functional and inspired by modern design.  Modern quilters work in different styles and define modern quilting in different ways, but several characteristics often appear which may help identify a modern quilt.  These include, but are not limited to: the use of bold colors and prints, high contrast and graphic areas of solid color, improvisational piecing, minimalism, expansive negative space, and alternate grid work.  "Modern traditionalism" or the updating of classic quilt designs is also often seen in modern quilting.
