December 5, 2013

Hi all!

Happy December!  Now it is cold!  

 I've heard it is colder than normal just about everywhere here in the States!  
In Kansas we do not have any snow, but I know many of you do, have fun, but be careful out there!

Need a happy little "snow person" quilt?  She's always "looking up!"

Here is our very own SNOWBELLE.  Simple fused shapes, easy to stitch by machine or hand.  Leave off the last border and she'll fit easily on a 12" table top stand.  Or leave the back off while quilting and turn her into a pillow cover!

Order our SNOWBELLE kit which includes pattern, top, back & binding fabrics here:


Pattern FREE with any order for anyone who asks. :)

For inspiration, we have all kinds of WINTER PROJECTS on display in the store.

 I LOVE this BATIK quilt.  And so have many of you.  

We've cut the last few kits out of our remaining fabric.  

The border, trees, and pinecone square fabrics are all the same, but there are a couple of substitutes in these final kits, same colors, but different patterns, which read just like the original pictured here.  

A great fabric sampler.  Get your kit before these are gone!

Check out PATCHWORK FOREST quilt kit here:

Placemats & napkins make excellent gifts.  They are so quick, and can be made "last minute". :)

These batik kits go well with all sorts of pottery place settings. 

 Each kit includes fabric for front & back of 4 placemats.  Need more?  Order multiple kits.

We've made these great TREE NAPKINS to go along with the placemats.  Order the napkin bundles, also in sets of 4, and we'll include the simple instructions and easy freezer-paper template to get you started!

 Placemats featuring CARDINALS and CHICKADEES will make a festive TABLE SETTING all winter long!  

Again, add fabric for matching TREE NAPKINS bundle, and we'll include the pattern & template along with the fabrics.  Order multiple kits, each includes enough fabric for 4 napkins and/or 4 placemats.




WINTER STILLNESS kit starts with a panel, and simply pieced ribbon stars make this quilt another quick project.


Free pattern can be found on-line at:

SouthSeas Imports Winter Stillness Project

PRE-CUTS make it easy to sew a coordinated SCRAP QUILT!  

 This kit starts with 2 packs of CHARMS (82 pre-cut 5" squares).  We've included the pattern, background, border & binding fabrics too.

Only two BLITZEN QUILT KITS remain downtown.  When they're gone, they're gone!

If you like the pattern, you can find here here for FREE:


Lily's new WINTER'S LANE PILLOW is done!

I helped by sewing it together with the piping.  Can you believe her sewing machine doesn't have a zipper foot?!  Even quilters need a zipper foot.  A must for sewing piping as well as zippers!

Lily made the piping.  She stitched and gathered the fabric over the large 1/2" cotton cording with her 1/4" foot, leaving it room to slip along the cord.  

Nice job!

Just a few of these PANELS left.  Order a kit here.  We'll add 5/8 yard of red fabric & 2 yards of piping, plus a coordinated backing fabric & you can make your own!  

Lily carefully embroidered to highlight the background print.  We'll even include a couple skeins of floss, but you can leave it plain if you're in a hurry!  :)

 Does your family like playing games?

Welcome MR. MONOPOLY!  

This really brings back memories.  We played so much Monopoly as kids and my family still loves to play it today.  

There will probably be a game or two played over Thanksgiving weekend!

Can you believe they retired the IRON?!  You know I love a CAT, but really, no iron?

We've got a great kit for a 75-inch square game-board-like quilt.  Fun on a bed, on the floor, anywhere!

Big prints are fun to picture in this easy to cut and sew, 
 TRIFECTA quilt pattern.

With three great places to feature big prints, panels or just your favorite fabrics.  


Great, sort of modern, WHALE prints featured in the center and side windows of this quilt make me think of a trip to the aquarium!




Our growth chart kit, OWL WONDERFUL, uses another all time favorite quilt pattern, SIDELIGHTS.



Thought of more people you'd like to share this Holiday season with?

Why not give a fun, easy to make, TIDY TRAVEL PILLOW CASE?!  

Choose the fabric to suit their interests.  Lots of styles to choose from or tell us which fabric you'd like to start with and we'll design one just for you.  Need your pillowcases full size?!


 Make a couple of kitchen tea towels with less than a yard of fabric!  7/8 yard makes two.  1-3/4 makes four.  3-1/2 makes eight!  :)

Check out our unique & trendy KANSAS fabric.  

  • Great for gifts for those who live elsewhere, you miss, and you wish would come "home"!  
  • Makes great house warming gifts for new arrivals, long time residents and natives alike!
  • Perfect for gifts to send home to families of exchange students.
