Santa Claus is here!

Have you ever seen two cuter little Santa's than these guys. They are festive and easy to make, using scrappy squares on an iron-on grid. The kits come with all the embellishments. Make these now so when the Christmas season arrives, you'll be ready. One is a wall hanging. . .

. . . and this guy is made using a cardboard tube, which makes nice storage when you are finished. Delightful!

We are working feverishly to get ready for our Fall Sale, September 16-18. Not only will we have great prices, but on Thursday, Sept. 16 at 6:00 p.m. we will have a demonstration and trunk show on "Stash Matters". We'll be presenting ideas for using and storing your stash...............with some terrific quilt patterns in the mix. Plan on joining us for the fun!

August Blocks

This month's apron block is (maybe) our favorite and that is almost final! We love the ruffles and the decorative stitching that looks like rick-rack. It just doesn't get any more fun than this!

And for our western block, every cowboy needs a saddle and we love the dimension the topstitching adds to ours. Makes us want to climb on a horse and go for a ride on this beautiful summer day.

The pieced sampler blocks are a very traditional design called "Right Hand of Friendship". They would make a lovely one block quilt, vary the colors, scrappy, black and red, batiks. . . no end to the possibilities. We hope you enjoy making this month's designs.

This game has stuffed bats and toads. . . your little spooks will love it! Come in and take a peek at the samples!
