The party's over . . .

The Saturday Sampler party is over . . . for this year anyway.  We will begin again on the 2nd Saturday in January 2013. (Doesn't that date sound like some kind of science fiction thing!)   The date is Jan. 12th, at 8:00, 9:00, or 10:00 a.m.  You will definitely want to see the fabulous projects we have planned for next year . . . and YES!. . . we finally have a plan! We try with all our creative might to come up with new and original designs that will appeal to everyone.  We are very excited about next year.

Following are the photos of the December blocks.  First of all, the pieced blocks in the neutral colors and the  blue color way.


And the last "Let It Snow" block . . . 

Included in your last "Let It Snow" block kit are instructions for assembling the quilt.  We also have finishing kits available with the fabrics we have used.  We love it!

The "Old Glory" quilt for December includes fabric for block #10 and when those are made you will be able to assemble and finish your quilt.  Isn't it fabulous.  It's so nice to have something ready to pull out for a holiday or gift and this is a definite winner for either occasion.

 You might also want to see a couple of different options for putting your blocks together.  We have this striking option . . .

And here is the log cabin design which we "kitted" at the beginning of 2012.  Isn't it gorgeous! 

We look forward to seeing you in January.  We will have our traditional finished quilt contest for the quilts made in 2012 in April of 2013. The only rule is that you use the block patterns and fabrics we provided.  The setting, finishing fabrics, etc. are up to you! We are giving lots of time to get your quilts done, so reward yourself and join the contest.

12 days of

“Twas the month before Christmas, 
 And all through the house 
Not a thing was left undecorated, 
Not even the mouse. 

The stockings were hung by the
chimney with care 
but my quilting friend’s stocking 
still remained bare.

  I love my friend dearly and want her 
Stocking to be plump 
But as I sit and ponder my mind is a frump.
When, what to my wondering eyes  
Should appear,

Made it perfectly clear!
With gadgets and gizmos and fabrics galore,

Her stocking will be FABULOUS 
She’s sure to adore!”
