'Tis the Season

'Tis the Season. . . the fall season that is. . . and don't you just love the Twist and Turn quilt in our fall colors. The technique is simple and so versatile, makes wonderful quilts, runners, borders, and more. The ruler comes in two sizes, and Let's Twist, a new book, shows lots of design ideas. It's our new favorite!

And speaking of seasons. . . our 'Tis the Season Christmas Sale will be Thursday through Saturday, November 11-13. The fabric is flying as we are working on new Christmas quilts, decor, and gift ideas. We are "sew" excited. (Sorry....just couldn't resist!) Jot a note to yourself and remember to join us for the sale. All bolted fabric will be 20% off. . . a great time to purchase backing, minkee, and lots of yummy flannels for winter, not to mention new kits and project ideas. It's a party, including edible treats! Hope to see you soon.Posted by Picasa

Baby Quilt

Isn't this the cutest quilt. . . the bears are machine appliqued in minkee, which makes them soft and cuddly. Any baby will LOVE the texture and warmth, not to mention the baby's mama! Using Moda's new line, Pure, for the background, the blues and browns are delightful and versatile. If you need a quilt for a special baby, this is simple and just takes a little time. We have kits available.

October Saturday Sampler

It is beautiful October! Hasn't the weather been just gorgeous and the leaves are turning colors, what a great time of year! We hope our sampler blocks for this month will add to your fun. They pieced blocks are easily made, using half square triangle units. Hard to say which color way we like best, the green and purple . . .

. . . or the blue and yellow. They are both delightful!

Our cowboy quilt block this month is a bit of Americana. There isn't a cowboy alive that doesn't love his country. . . so we must have a flag in the quilt.

This block will be a bit of the topper for the apron quilt. It is just like last month's block, only done in different colors. You will love the way these go together. . . stay tuned!
