Dear Quilter,

     Hopefully you have been following along this last month as I swing into full gear as I move into retirement.  I have kept you posted on the free BOM "Connie Sue's Sketchbook's" download page as to the sales that are currently running.  I would remind you that I have a limited number of patterns remaining.
     I don't want to loose touch with you when I shut down my website.  I would encourage you to follow "Apple Blossom Quilts" on Facebook.  I intend to post photos of what I've finished as I finish them.

        As I move towards retirement, I have started a To-Do List.  It is getting longer and longer.  Many of my projects involve our home.  There are cupboards and closets that need cleaning.  As we move into spring I hope to do more outside.
    A year ago I made a list of all my UFO's - all 63 of them.  Well, not quite.  Seems I missed a closet entirely.  I've decided to wait until the first 63 are done before tackling that closet.  That's in the category of "What I don't know won't...........".

It's a Book - The Remaining Lessons

     I have decided to publish all of the remaining lessons now so that you have the maximum time to get them downloaded.  If you print them all you will have a  book that tells how to do my QuikPrep Applique Method.  Or better yet, you can download them all and save them in a file on your computer for easy referencing.

     Of the three lessons published this month, Lesson 15 - Split Leaves is by far the most important.  I have also published a cover page and an index for your convenience.  

     All lessons will remain up as long as the website is active.

Pattern & DVD Sale - 35% Off
 
Pattern & DVD Sale 35% Off
   I will be selling all of the patterns that I currently have in stock at discounted prices as long as they last.  I will not be printing any more.  Here is the sales schedule:


  • 2/18/19 - 40% off
  • 3/04/19 - 45% off
  • 3/18/19 - 50% off
  • 4/01/19 - 60% off
  • 4/15/19 - 70% off
        I will not be putting "Connie Sue's Sketchbook" on sale.

Last Call for Non-USA Orders
Very Important:  Non-USA orders will only be taken through the 35% off discount.  I'm sorry about this but it is the only practical solution for me.  I will not ship outside of the USA after the 35% discount.  That means if you live outside of the USA you only have through Sunday, Feb. 17th to order.
