Hi all!

One more day for all orders & in-store customers to receive this FREE STAR-CROSSED RUNNER PATTERN.

The more I look at it, the more fabric combination ideas I get, so don't be surprised if even more models show up in the near future! :)

You can order either of these BATIK KITS now.  My camera just couldn't figure out where to focus on this cool red/white batik!  Sorry for the blurry images but it is quite a "sharp" runner! Smart, but not quite as bright as the top image. :)  The lower detail image seems truer to "real" colors.

You can see, with the warm 60-degree weather, my mind is drifting towards spring.  So I've backed both the green batik and red batik runners with "spring" fabrics, hoping for a short winter? LOL  

Starting Saturday, we'll be giving away a NEW FREE PATTERN the entire month of December.  MODERN TWIST can be made smaller, or larger - your choice!  

 Simple 20-inch square pinwheel quilt, called MODERN TWIST, has a MODERN look which can also go more traditional - it all depends on the fabric choices, of course.

We'd love to see pictures of all your projects, but especially any you do with these FREE PATTERNS.



I've recently made a couple of BLOG POSTS.  I hope you'll check them out, and I think you can sign up to get notification of when I post something new.  Look in the lower right corner of the BLOG for the little GREY BOX with the word FOLLOW, fill in your email address, and you'll get notified when I post. (I hope it's working right.) :)


 ATTENTION LOCAL CUSTOMERS - you can always order on-line and tell us you're going to pick-up in the store.  That way we'll charge your credit card, but not charge you for shipping (even though it shows on the invoice).  

I know some of you have be disappointed as we've sold out of items we're showing in this newsletter before the store even opens.  Since we fill orders in order as they're placed, this allows you to get in on the favorites too and have them waiting for you when you come to the store! :)


We're looking ahead to 2013 BLOCK-A-MONTHS. 

 Starting in January, our SECOND SATURDAY, will be called SATURDAY SOIREE, and features either red/white or blue/white reproduction fabrics.  We'll be announcing details soon!

Charming sampler quilts, it will be hard to choose which colorway is best!


 We'll be offering a new CIVIL WAR-era quilt, also starting January 2013. 

FREEDOM RINGS will be offered as a class or simply as BLOCK-A-MONTH kits without a class, or as an entire kit to be delivered all at once.

Again, watch for details coming soon.

Meanwhile, we always stock a great selection of CIVIL WAR fabrics.  Click here:

WING AND A PRAYER DESIGNS has come out with another great QUILT PATTERN!  Available in 3 sizes, King, Queen, and shown below is the THROW size.  Notice the lack of pieced border.


CONTESSA is a beautiful combination of piecing & appliqué.  

The PATTERN & FABRIC is in stock now.

 The fabric is available by the yard and in fabric kits for 3 different size quilts. 

A monthly class will be available starting in January 2013.

 I recently tried my hand at the popular JELLY ROLL RACE quilt.  I had custom cut a JELLY ROLL from NOVELTY & SPORTS fabrics we have in the store.

There are only 21 strips in our roll.  Rather than use two SPORTS rolls, I decided to use part of a BLACK BELLA SOLID JELLY ROLL from Moda to make up my 40 strips.  


Well, my quilt didn't turn out to suit me, so I cut it up into squares, and used a QUILT AS YOU GO technique to finish it.  Now I LOVE IT.  It is really unusual, and I was able to quilt each square on my home sewing machine!  The "hinges" are stitched with a feather stitch by machine.  Rows go together quickly and you can make it whatever size you need.

Tired of paying to quilt even the little quilts you are gifting?  Click here to see all the QUILT AS YOU GO patterns from BUTTERFLY EXPRESS.

DYI KITCHEN ACCESSORIES are all the rage right now.  OVEN MITS, HOT PADS, APRONS, and more!  We've got two great patterns from Vanilla House.  What makes them especially great is their ideas for GIFT GIVING.

Each pattern has a recipe, and artwork which you can duplicate to package the baking mix and include in a gift bag, coordinated with other accessories.  How Fun!

I can't wait to get started, only I'll have trouble giving these away!  LOL
