Hi all!

HAPPY JUNE!  Loving the rain & high humidity, even if it is just temporary!

In honor of HEAT & HUMIDITY, we're kicking off the month with 
Every Tuesday in June, TUESDAY only, 

all BATIKS will be 15% off, 1 yard minimum cuts.

If you are a Shopper's Club member, you will SAVE 25%!  We'll adjust your on-line order before we charge your credit card.

Stop in Charlotte's Sew Natural or shop this SALE category on-line:

Our version, pictured above, of Thimble Blossom's SWOON pattern is on display in the  downtown store too. Kits available now!  

There are 18 fat quarters used in the blocks, 9 BATIKS + 9 PRINTS.  Lovely!

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

 We do have the pattern for GLORY, the 2013 champion quilt, and would be more than happy to help you pull fabrics for any of the 8 sizes included in this quilt pattern.  We have lots of red & blue fabrics!

See Cozy Quilts GLORY pattern here:



We like sewing with batiks.  I've used some BATIKS in our Charlotte's Sew Natural row for the ROW BY ROW EXPERIENCE.

Let's just call it: SEW HAPPY SUNFLOWERS!

 Whether you are staying close to home or travelling around the States & Canada this summer, check out the ROW BY ROW EXPERIENCE, a new kind of Shop Hop.  There are more than 50 participating shops in KANSAS alone!

 I have designed our ROWS for the FREE PATTERNS that will be handed out in both stores starting July 1.  

They each use CREATIVE GRIDS rulers.  They will be revealed and posted on a number of web sites soon and hopefully, in my next week's newsletter.

Come see SEW HAPPY SUNFLOWERS now, but you'll have to come between July 1 & the end of August to get the FREE ROW PATTERN.

 I used one of my new, favorite rulers, the COTTAGE RULER, a non-slip ruler from Creative Grids to cut my shapes.  This ruler makes cutting parallelograms easy!  Not to mention TRAPEZIUMS! 

The popular SEW HAPPY fabric plate is back in stock again!


Just in time for a JUNE START on Wednesday June 4th, tomorrow, I've devised a, 
pick up in the store,


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

This year, it will be $3/kit, the month of issue, and $5/kit after the month.   If you want to make a 70" x 90" quilt, you will need to buy 2 kits each month in 8 of the 12 months.

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.  Backing will be additional.

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:
