Hi all!

Yesterday it was snowing, and today, the sound of lawn mowers fills the air!  Welcome to Kansas in May!

I am quite impressed that my back yard "heritage" Lilac bush managed to squeeze out one lone bloom this year!  I was shocked to see it and find it beautiful, sad & happy all rolled into one small flower.  Never give up! 


Maybe the FLOWER FAIRIES are real!

These are certainly cute. :)  Check these out here:




I guess Timeless Treasures heard enough requests for "Fairy",  "Princess" and "Ballerina" that they decided to combine all the little girl favorites into one fabric line!  

If you've got little girls to sew for, check these out now! 

And I love that this fabric's print is "tossed", which means you don't have to worry about what direction your  quilt pieces or borders are going when you cut them out.   "Thank you" to Timeless for listening to that repeated request too!

 MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND is only 3 weeks away!

JULY 4TH is only 5-1/2 weeks after that!

To help get you in the mood early, for the entire month of May, we'll include with all web orders , this FREE PATTERN for a lively BANNER, .  

If you're in the store, be sure to ask for a copy.

Whip up this MINI-QUILT to Celebrate Summer!  It is surely on it's way! :)  

Mary hangs an earlier version of this banner on her front porch.  I'm going to try to get one done too.  Her house always looks so festive!

We've got an IT'S A BANNER DAY kit, like the quilt pictured here, available at the moment, which includes a paper-piecing guide for those half-wheel buntings.  

Please check out the details here:


I have been sewing, sewing, sewing!  This HAS been perfect weather for sewing!  

First, I "whipped" up several MODERN QUILTS for our LOG CABIN demonstrations during SATURDAY SCHOOLHOUSE, and some more traditional ones too.

Thanks to all who participated in that event!

We had a much larger crowd than expected.  The THANK YOU GRADUATION GIFTS, which we ran out of, have now arrived, so check with the store where you turned in your REPORT CARD to  receive your gift.


If you didn't get to come, you can see all the Marti Michell LOG CABIN RULERS, that I demonstrated and used in the featured quilts by clicking here:


Marti has a good series of videos detailing the entire process of making a log cabin quilt with her rulers, which you can see starting here:


 KITS are available for several of the models shown on the wall behind me in the picture above.  As well as a kit of the SUNFLOWER QUILT hanging over the doorway here.


 As I write this, there is one last BELLA VERONA kit (hanging on the wall above the green fabrics).  If you know you would like that before they are all gone, please phone 316-284-2547 or click here:

The Kansas City Royals are doing so well this Spring, that I've allowed my husband to talk me into going to Kansas City tomorrow night to see a baseball game!  

We'll look a lot like these Happy Cats, only not exactly t-shirt weather, so picture down parkas and quilts wrapped around our legs!  LOL


If you like CARS and you're also looking for something fun to do outside this weekend, check out the NEWTON CAR SHOW.  Located on Main Street in Newton all day Saturday!  

Hmmm, might not be t-shirt or swimming suit weather in Newton either!  So, dress appropriately!  LOL

Have a great weekend!
