Hi all!

Happy Friday the 13th!  Enjoy the extra long day, extended by that super FULL MOON!  I am getting lots done at night.  LOL


Last week we started by sorting through our downtown "color wall", and moved more than 100 bolts south, which translates into hundreds of yards of fresh SALE fabrics at CHARLOTTE'S BARGAIN FABRICS at the Chisholm Trail Mall location. 

These are great blenders, tone on tone, subtle prints or nearly solids in all the colors of the rainbow MARKED DOWN NOW UP TO 25% OFF!

Plus LOTS MORE!!!  Great for sashing, borders, bindings & backings. 

MODERN QUILTERS will love the selection of nearly solid colors for large quilt blocks!

NEW SALE TONAL PRINTS at Charlotte's Bargain Fabrics.

Selection is BEST NOW. While there are many smaller bolts in the mix, there are quite a few with enough for BACKING a KING size quilt! Don't let this opportunity get away!

On line, keep an eye on this department for the newest mark-downs:

On SALE up to 25% Off

On SALE 26% to 50% Off

On SALE 50% Off and more!


If you love a BARGAIN, be sure to visit our ALL ON SALE location, CHARLOTTE'S BARGAIN FABRIC & STITCHERY, in The Chisholm Trail Mall, just off I-135, south of Newton.

Check out our MYSTERY BAB, monthly block program, AVAILABLE NOW! This uses the BELLA SOLIDS with a WHITE ground. You'll have to trust me on this one! Easy! LOL


Each kit will have strips of different colored fabric, including a white background, plus instructions.

When you pick up in the store, it will cost $3/kit, the month of issue,  and $5/kit after the month.

Thangles are optional, but available.  Later on, there will be a finishing kit for approx. $20, to finish the top of a TWIN size quilt. 

Yes, for at least the first few months, you won't know what you're doing.  LOL  If that sounds like fun (or just like the rest of your life), this is for you! :)

 Each month you'll buy fabric and receive instructions of something to sew, but at first, you won't know what you're making.  

Here are some colors that will be involved:

It starts now.

There still is just one complete kit left from the recently finished 2013-2014 BAB.  The fabrics used in the border and for setting are nearly gone, so if you would like this COMPLETE KIT, please phone the store now, or click here to order.  You'll have to select the "add blocks" option.  Remember, there's only 1! :)

Row by Row Experience 2014 starts in July, but the exclusive fabrics are in the store now.

The Top 5 shops with the most LIKES at the end of the summer get a Creative Grids Prize package. Of course, you want us to win this so we'll be able to share CREATIVE GRIDS RULERS & SPECIALS with our customers! :) 

In the Facebook Creative Grids USA photo stream, 

  • Charlotte's Sew Natural row is "Sew Happy Sunflowers", #10 in the photo stream, currently second box
  • Charlotte's Bargain Fabric row is "Build A Snowman", #9, found in the first box of photostreams

At the next Second Saturday, June 14th at 9 a.m. I will demo the COTTAGE RULER, used to cut the sunflower's shapes and the carpenter's wheel shapes in the Plain & Fancy quilt.

Free class for anybody who is interested.

See the Cottage ruler here:

We love your enthusiasm, so mark your calendars, the row patterns will be available in the stores starting July 1st!

I hope you might start noticing this other places on the web, but this button image is actually a block from our newest quilt, our version of Thimble Blossom's 
SWOON pattern. Kits available now

We're calling it HOME RUN! and it will be our entry into the MAJOR LEAGUE QUILT COMPETITION, which begins mid-July.  

 You can take a peek at last year's entries and winner to get a feel for how this is going to work.  So, in July, when I say "I think I've hit a HOME RUN!  Please go vote for my quilt now!", you'll have an idea of what I'm talking about!  LOL  (Inspirational picture of "home run fireworks" at Royals Stadium in KC.)

More, NEW BLOCK A MONTH ready now

Come see our completed quilt hanging in the store - you're gonna love it!

You can buy HOUSE WARMING, as a complete kit now, or month by month for SIX MONTHS.  

 This new BLOCK-A-MONTH quilt is written by Vicki Bellino and designed especially for using Marcus Strip-It fabrics.

We'll gladly help you select fabrics that suit your taste & decor, or you can use Marti's beautiful fabrics, TOMORROW'S PROMISE, pictured here, by Maywood Studios.

Rita just finished a LARGE KING-size quilt!  She started with JELLY ROLLS, and used the pattern LUMBER MILL, from Antler Quilt Designs.  She added a border to the pattern to make it a bit bigger.

We'll cut you a kit depending on the size you need.  Just let us know what size you want and we'll do the calculations and let you know.


See the fabrics, WOODLAND SUMMER from Moda, here,

and the Lumber Mill pattern here,


Creative treatment on the back using "left overs" (suggested in the pattern), allowed her to use the 108" wide back, and extend it the few inches she needed for KING SIZE! :)


The NEWEST ADDITIONS - will be found at the downtown store, Charlotte's Sew Natural, and on the web:


HALLOWEEN is arriving by the boxful!

For all you fishermen & fisherwomen out there, here's a nice quilt to wrap up in if the boat is chilly, or just stay home and take a nap under!  Again, great artwork and great quilt design!
