Bernina World of Sewing Gathering: Gemstone Quilt Pattern

The Gemstone pattern from Wing and a Prayer Design is used during this Gathering.

This Web page is aimed at being a central repository of information for our Fall 2015 -thru- Fall 2016 Daytime Gathering that is involved with using the Gemstone pattern from Wing and a Prayer Design for the Gathering participant. The information in this page is intended especially for those of you who are participating in the Gathering.

For participating in the Gathering, you are reminded that:

  • The Gathering participants purchased, from our store, the Gemstone pattern offered as part of this Gathering and the fabric needed for this quilt..

  • Gathering participants should have experience in sewing and in making quilts.

  • Gathering participants, surely, interact. However, the Gathering is not a class . Each participant is expected to be able to manage his/her own project.

  • The store will not be able to arrange and set-up class machines for use during the Gatherings. Gathering participants should bring to the Gathering what they need for sewing/cutting during the Gathering.

  • Due to the numerous options / aims / of each Gathering participant, space at the Gathering is limited.
    Gathering Participants must be pre-signed up. "Drop in" participants, due to classroom class size and machine space limitations will not be accommodated. Sorry!

  • If a Gathering participant decides to "drop out" of the 2015 Gatherings, it would be appreciated if that were known by the store; there may a wait-list and, if a Gathering slot opens - Persons on the wait-list will be notified of such.

Further information will be available on this Webpage and via eMail sent to Gathering participants.

Thank you for your participation - and, we look forward to seeing your beautiful work as 2015/2016 progresses!

Those who signed up and are participating in this Gathering have been contacted via eMail. For those participating and have been contacted, the next session for the 2015/2016 Daytime Gathering for Gemstone 2015/2016 will held: Tuesday, December 20 beginning at 10:00am at the store. - and, if you have time to do so: Show-and-Tell at the Saturday Bernina Club December 3, 2016 10:00am-12:00pm.

Again: Please do NOT show up for the Gathering if you have not been contacted (there, simply, is not sufficient space for "walk-in" participants). Sorry!

Thank you for participating in the Jelly Roll Race! It was fun - and, I think the completed tops are going to be put into good use; mine will, I know for sure: My knees will appreciate the warmth this upcoming cold winter!

A reminder: If you have time to stop by and show your Gathering piece at the Saturday, December 3, 10:00am-12:00pm Bernina Club: Thank you, in advance.

What a day that we had! It was inspiring. We had sooooo many positive interactions together, working on three different quilts.

Thank you for coming to our near-final Daytime Gathering for this project! It was a fun / hard-working / great-to-see-your-progress time. As your pieces become final, I look forward to seeing your finished pieces. I know how much work and time that you have spent so far. Good luck, as you "finish up".

Thank you, all, for coming. It was a surprise that the mid-summer Gathering fit most-everyone's schedule and it was a pleasure to share the work-day with you. It will be fun to see even more completed tops! It is amazing, even though we all started with the same pattern, how different that the pieces look. Good luck, as your pieces come to completion; they all are so beautiful. Congratulations.

Wow! It was wonderful to see your pieces near-completion and, even, ready for quilting in some cases.

Well.... I could tell you that I "missed you" during my vacation in April -- but, I have to be honest: I enjoyed my vacation! Now, I look forward to catching up with you at the May Gathering.

As we wind down this Gathering, remember to bring to the Gatherings/in-store-discussions any "special requests" and ideas that you have for the next Daytime Gatherings. Time will quickly pass, now.

See you May 17!

Thank you for your work. The time is FLYING by. Even, starting to put the completed parts together. Nice. September 2016 and the "end" of this project will be here soon.

Good luck, to all of us!

See you in March 2016 - or, in the store or in a class, before that.

I have taken a close look at the Gemstone pattern and I think it will be challenging -- and, fun -- to work on.
