waterings, are you finishing a few projects? I
Be sure to check out our excellent
selection of WIDE BACKS, perfect for large quilts.
We have one of the best
selections of 100% cotton, 103 to 108 inch wide backing around!
Select from solids, prints & batiks.
We also boast one of the
best selections of BATTING! We have batting by the yard, on
rolls, in the classroom. We also have BATS IN THE CLOSET!
Yes, packaged batting is in the hallway, closet and king-size bats are
in the "throne room". :)
We carry a variety of
HOBBS & QUILTER'S DREAM in cotton, polyester, blends, in a variety of
weights and sizes. If you need batting, check out our
selection. We are also happy to special order any special sizes
We do not list anywhere
near all our batting on the web site, as the shipping is hard to predict
since it is bulky and lightweight. If
you need something sent to you, we are happy to let you know what we have on hand, and how
much it will cost to mail.
Saturday, July 13th, is SECOND SATURDAY.
At 9 a.m. I will be
PART 2 of the Finishing Instructions for SATURDAY SOIREE, GALLERY IN
RED & BLUE as well as the 7th sampler block. Looking forward to seeing you here in the
I will also be
demonstrating another fun technique I've been using in a recent project. So come see what I've been up to, as well as SHOW &
SHARE from other customers and staff members. :)
The 2nd block in our newest BUCK A
BLOCK, is ready to pick up. The Bonus kit includes a
"solid gold" fabric
this month. Ooooh, how rich! LOL
The monthly BLOCK KIT for a BUCK to be picked up
in the store, will contain 1 white strip & one black strip, and
each month a different block pattern to make a 7-inch finished block. You'll also need
a package of 1.75" Thangles.
BONUS KITS will be available each month,
to make the block larger, finishing at 14". Each month's
bonus kit will feature a different solid color, as well as a different
black/white print. You'll always use the same pattern (available in
the first month's kit which has solid purple fabric - Go Cats!) to make the units
which are added to the 7-inch block. The strips will be cut to size. These
kits cost $3.99. You'll also need 3.5" Thangles.

BUCK-A-BLOCK may be MAIL ORDERED.
$8.49/monthly includes postage or just $4.99 when added to any other
order that month.
THE QUILT KIT in PARTS & PIECES.
Designed by Wing And A Prayer
Designs, this is a "mystery" quilt.
You get to know what the fabrics look like, but not the
finished quilt. Fun!
We're offering a special selection of TONGA BATIKS selected especially
to solve this MYSTERY QUILT puzzle!
It can be finished in 3 sizes. The larger size takes more blocks,
but you'll have enough fabric to follow the precise step-by-step
instructions twice, producing enough blocks.
Finished sizes: 62" square (basic simple borders),
68" square (basic accent borders), 78" x 90" (large simple borders
surround more blocks)
have some great "summer dishes" that have HULA GIRLS around
the rim of the plates & bowls. They are really fun.
I'm making new, reversible placemats
to go with them, and reversing to go with my standard red, everyday plates
Now I got really clever! I need
8 matching placemats, sometimes. But not always. One side
on all 8 will be the green print, which is a "travelogue"
print, complete with HULA GIRLS! :) The other side, the floral,
will be on 4 mats, and also match the Hula plates, but the other 4
reverse to the black print, which goes with the red plates.
Cool, and lots of variety for my table!
they all need to be bound with the same fabric. So, I laid out
the first 4 mats on the table to see what I thought I might use for
binding. Then I ran down to the store (I only live a few blocks
away) to get a couple of options. When I returned, Meiko had
decided he was a plate!! LOL
I scolded, and moved the placemats to
the sewing room. I returned to the store, cut my selected
fabric, and ran right home again. Now Fluffy was soooo happy I'd
moved the new placemats to her favorite hang-out, my ironing
board! Bad kitties!! LOL
