Happy Mother's Day!

From all of us at Valley Fabric Shop, we'd like to wish you a very happy Mother's Day.  We hope the weather is sunny, the food delicious, and your family is thoughtful!

And . . . here are the new blocks for Saturday Sampler.  We began a new project for the applique group . . . something "quilty". . . and hope you like it as much as we do.

As we have also promised, here are a couple of different ways to use the block.  First, a sewing machine cover. . . make one for yourself and one to give as a gift.  What "stitchin" girl wouldn't love to receive one of these.  Notice the cute spool blocks on the back.  We have kits that contain everything including buttons, binding and backing. 


And. . . another great project is this large bag for carrying quilting supplies to a class or retreat or even a weekend get-away. The Saturday block we designed makes the front pocket and on the inside is a bolt covered with batting and fabric; a removeable  pressing surface.  We love it!


For the autumn  and the  pink/green quilts, you will make another of the same blocks we made last month. To see a  photo, look under the April Saturday Sampler posting.   If you are appliquing the vine, just make sure you are placing it in the right direction.  It should be a mirror image of April's block.

You have cream and green fabric from last month, so this month's kits will contain only the vine and leaf colors, or the vine and flower colors.    Happy Stitching!
