New! New! New!

We love this fresh and light look for spring. . . at least the calendar SAYS it should be spring! It was made with a new ruler that makes the most exact triangles from pieced jelly roll strips. The points all come together beautifully and you can do so many things with the blocks. Come on in and see the other samples.

Baby quilts just don't get any cuter than this little guy. Easily made with strips and a bit of applique..........and we have it blues for boys and pinks for girls.

And speaking of babies..........aren't these little shoes delightful? Simple to make. . . and soft for little people to wear...........they are DARLING!

Charla and Bobbi just returned from Quilt Market with a load of new! They are stitching new samples and featuring new goodies at the store. Every time we think we've seen it all, grand new creations pop up! Come on in for a peek.

May Blocks

Can't believe May is here and it's the middle of the month! Here is a peek at our Saturday Sampler blocks. The western block includes a couple of sheriff stars. You can't have a cowboy gathering without a sheriff or two. . . or so they say!

Our pieced blocks are a fun little 9-patch. They look a bit like a snail's trail, with a twist. The colors are very pretty and "spring-like" in each color way.

Grandma's apron is a ruffled little affair......easy to make and we love the dimensional look. Oops! Should have moved the stuff behind the block, we are learning a lot about photography and promise to do better in the future. Always learning......that makes a great life!
