The sun’s peeking out from behind the clouds and the air is a smidge warmer. At The Joyful Quilter, it’s time to start thinking about summer! And when we think about summer we think about having a Healthy, Joyful Heart.
The Healthy, Joyful Heart program is our way of inviting and encouraging all of us to take good care of ourselves. Maybe that means to take time out to just sit, or to sew a little more, or to take a walk, or to be sure to take those vitamins every day. Whatever we need to do to take care of ourselves, sometimes a little reward helps to get it done. So here’s the reward we’re offering this year:
When you sign up for the Healthy, Joyful Heart program between now and April 15, and pay the program fee of $55, by the end of the summer you will have all the fabric you need to make the quilt top pictured above in the throw size ( 62″ x 74″ ). Pretty cool, right? This pattern comes from Cozy Quilt Designs, and uses the same Strip Tube Ruler that we’ve used for the last 2 Healthy, Joyful Heart programs.
The program starts on June 1, when you come in to pick up a June calendar and some pretty stickers, and start (or continue) doing good things for yourself. Do at least 3 good things each week during June, and bring your marked calendar back during the first week of July. We’ll hand you a package of fat eighths, which you’ll be able to use for the scrappy colors in the pattern. We’ll also give you a calendar and stickers for July. Do at least 4 good things each week during July, and bring your marked calendar back during the first week of August. We’ll give you the light-colored background fabric for the center of your quilt, along with a calendar and stickers for August. Do at least 5 good things each week in August, and bring your marked calendar back during the first week of September. We’ll give you your quilt borders and a hearty CONGRATULATIONS! We’ll also let you know when we’ll be holding complimentary classes to get you well on your way to finishing this delightful quilt.
