A Great New Technique

This fabulous fall quilt is made using a new ruler and the "twist and turn" method. It is super simple, you begin by stitching 10" squares together, and even add a border. Then using the speciality ruler, cut as directed, stitch, and you have this delightful quilt. We chose deep rich colors for fall, but wouldn't it be great for a baby, or bright colors for a child, or something manly for the guys you love. IT can be made in different sizes. . . very creative!

It Was a Blast!

We had a grand time at our Fall Sale "Stash Matters" event. Thank you all for joining, it was standing room only. We are working on that! We thank all you lovely ladies, especially those traveling, for taking time to share "good things quilty" with us. The above photo is from the trunk show Scrap Basket Surprises. Several fabulous quilts from that book are still on display at Valley Fabric. They are yummy! and the patterns are very versatile.

Sept. Saturday Sampler

Saturday Sampler is here again, this time with frost! With the days becoming cooler, it's nice to have some inside activities.

Isn't this a fun pieced pinwheel. Makes us wish for an entire quilt made of this block.

Our western quilt needs another boot. . . every cowboy has several pair.

The apron quilt has a few pieced blocks, these will be part of the header. It's exciting to watch these quilts come together. Come on in for a peek. We also have lots of new samples and displays as we are getting ready for our Fall Sale, Thursday Sept 16 - Saturday, Sept 18. On Thursday evening at 6:00 p.m. we'll have a great hour of fun, Stash Matters, it is free! Enjoy refreshments after and shop until 9:00 p.m.

Look What's New

Is this the cutest guy ever. It is a flip and sew pattern and we'll be offering a class to teach the technique. The orange zipper trim on the edges gives it real teeth (sorry. . . just couldn't resist). It's only one of our many new fall samples. Our Fall Open House will be held Thursday, Sept. 16 - Saturday, Sept 18. It's a great time to get your fabric and sign up for class.

On Thursday, Sept. 16 at 6:00 p.m. we are having a special event, Stash Matters. Join us for an hour of info on managing your stash, storage, planning quilts, new patterns and several trunk shows. It promises to be an hour of informative fun. And. . . we always have great refreshments!!
