Hi all!

If you are not my neighbor, my hope for you is that you live somewhere with rain!  If you are my neighbor, then let us all join in a "pity party" to complain about how much time we now spend watering!

 Even as my garden is burning up, I am looking forward to Renee Nanneman's new book, GARDEN GATE.  You can pre-order it here now:


I love her collaborative concept!  She writes, "Developing a 'Threads' book is much like growing a garden. I plant the idea seeds, a visual theme, such as Garden Gate. The concept grows as my designer friends sketch and create. . . . Some projects bloom early and others are worth the wait. The growing season is longer than one might think."  I take heart in that thought for my own garden, but I believe she's saying that this book has been in the works for a couple of years.  

 If you are familiar with Renee's work, you know that she has been busy with lots of things in the meantime.  

Come to our web site for lots of great RENEE NANNEMAN products, with more stuff coming soon.

Here's another treat!  Check out this great video of Renee's presentation for ANDOVER FABRICS in Kansas City this past May.  I hope you find it as interesting as I did.  We have lots of the fabrics she's talking about so come see us soon!

 Rita recently finished a BITTY BROKEN LONE STAR, using some of Renee's BELLA BLISS for Andover.  

The piecing was simplified using PRINTED INTERFACING from QUILTSMART to make all the star points the SAME perfect size!


All QUILTSMART products here:

As HOT as the days have been, sometimes early morning is just perfect for sitting on the patio,  doing a little binding by hand.  This morning wasn't too bad.  

I've finished up the store model for VINTAGE ROUGE.  Stop in to see it hanging downtown.  This quilt finishes approx. 79 x 79 inches.

 The VINTAGE ROUGE KITS are cut and ready to go, if you want to purchase all the fabrics at once.

We're also offering it as a BOM - actually, several blocks a month.

I will be teaching a SIX MONTH CLASS beginning in September.  There are lots of neat, time-saving techniques in this quilt and it will be a fun LECTURE-DEMO class.  Details soon.

Watch our CALENDAR for updates:


I am looking forward to a bit more time for inside sewing as the days shorten and we see cooler weather.  

But first, we have August and September to get through!! (Happy August with the 10 day forecast including more 100-degree days!)

QUILT SHOP HOP!  October 5th, 6th, & 7th!

OCTOBER will bring us the Central Kansas QUILT SHOP HOP!   Maybe this is why I am day-dreaming of cooler weather!  

I am working on my EXCLUSIVE QUILT, using our EXCLUSIVE BATIK from Hoffman.  It is very "autumnal"!  

List of the 11 shops & other details on the HOP can be found here:


The QUILT SHOP HOP T-SHIRTS are available now!  At last check, we had all the sizes available.  We have the LADIES' style, which means slightly shorter sleeves and narrower neckline treatment.

Call 316-284-2547 with your credit card or come in person!

Also coming in September, 

This will be a 12 month lecture-demo class starting in September.  

We're showing it in SERENITY TAUPE fabrics, and Marti has named it U-TAUPE-IA.


We will have all these fabrics on-hand.  Or let us help you select the PERFECT fabrics for you.  We have quite a selection!  Really!! 

AMISH WITH A TWIST kits are also ready.

You can purchase the complete kit, or in parts.  

Click here for details:

A class will also be offered starting in September.


For a LIMITED TIME, with every CRABAPPLE HILL PATTERN purchased, we will send you this FREE PATTERN!  The pattern also includes the word QUILT, so you can stitch it anyway you like!
