Hi all!


Oh my! We just sorted through our downtown "color wall", and have moved nearly 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!

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!

Rita is marking them in to the Mall store today, but would be happy to sell them before Jennifer & Penny have to figure out where to shelve them!

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

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:

For those of you who asked, I finally finished my GRADUATION GIFTS!  

 WSU & FHSU placemats for Ruth & Joel. My newly engaged friends who graduated the same day from two Kansas schools, which luckily share colors! :)

I started with purchased "garden flags". I trimmed them down a bit, and added quilt-as-you-go ends, then binding all around for matching, reversible placemats. 

They were already talking about all the things they had to go with these to set a cute table. How sweet! :)

We love stepping outside the box, so feel free to stop in the store any time for help with your own creative ideas, fabric suggestions & answers to sewing questions! 

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