Here are two different color ways for assembling your Celebrate Life quilt. Both are charming. . . one uses green sashing and no topper, the other uses red sashing and a floral topper. Each has a different colored border. Come on in and we'll be happy to help you select your choice of finishing fabrics. Thanks for sharing this project with us . . . it has been a great year!

The Friends block and the bird block are the last two units to finish the Celebrate Life quilt. Both represent joyful gifts to all.
Here is the Victorian December block. . .
. . . and here is a sample layout of the quilt with the finishing kit blocks. (This shows only some of the finished blocks.) The first block on the second row is the December pattern. The layout gives you an idea of the fabulous quilt you will have when finished. WE LOVE IT!
Here is another beautiful way to put your blocks together, using the Circle of Nine pattern from the book by that same name. It is gorgeous and using a very simple setting, makes a dramatic looking quilt.

Where does the time go???? We didn't do too well at posting in August, but we're back into the swing of things and here are the photos for the September blocks. The Celebrate Life block is a lovely little basket of flowers.
The watermelon pieced block is made with the most yummy melon colors . . .
and the Victorian Block features soft, romantic pinks and florals. Happy sewing!
Don't forget to set aside some time Sept 15-17 for our Fall Frenzy. On Thursday Sept. 15 we'll host a special event at 6:00 p.m., "All Dolled Up" a fun hour of creative ideas and entertainment. Refreshments will be served and we'll stay open until 9:00 p.m.

We have such a good time in our children's sewing classes. It is simply amazing what they are able to accomplish and how quickly they learn. Here is one class showing off their first quilts!

If you'd like a peek at the Saturday Sampler blocks for April . . . here they are. The victorian,
the watermelon quilt . . .
. . . and Celebrate Life.
We also showed Nancy Halvorsen's new fabric line today, Jingle All the Way. She just keeps creating gorgeous prints, the tone-on-tone prints are luscious. They are created to coordinate with a Christmas panel, but after looking at them we think they will work for spring, summer, and our watermelon quilt! We have the entire line.
