Hi all!

Today is the 12th and final class in this year's UTAUPIA SAMPLER QUILT CLASS.  Students, be sure to bring your quilt tops!  This is the time to show off!  Congratulations are due!

In September, we start a new, year-long QUILT SAMPLER CLASS at Charlotte's Sew Natural, which can be made in any fabric you choose.  Beginner to expert level students welcome.

 Mary will be teaching the


using Marti Michell's pattern & templates.

A limited number of kits will be available with fabrics like Mary's quilt.

Most students make unique quilts with our help selecting the fabrics.  (See below.)

This makes each class meeting especially fun, seeing the same quilt block done in such a variety of fabrics.  Maybe you'd like to do it in Christmas fabrics and create an heirloom to be brought out annually?  We'll be happy to help you select the perfect fabrics!

Beginner to expert level students welcome.  (Beginners must know how to use a sewing machine, but all other skills will be covered in as much depth as you require.)

 Starts Thursday September 19th

Meets - 3rd Thursdays  through August 2014

Choose 10 a.m. or 6:30 p.m. class time.

Lecture/demo lasts about an hour.  $48 plus materials.

There are many, many fabrics to choose from in the store which would make up beautifully in this pattern.  We're so happy to help you with your selections.  This is what we truly LOVE to do!  :)

 Just two suggestions:  CROSSROADS by Jan Patek for MODA.

For a more contemporary look, you could consider starting with AMETHYST from Classic Cottons.


September also marks the start of an APPLIQUÉ BLOCK A MONTH quilt class.

 Mary will be teaching


which combines piecing and appliqué for a fun HALLOWEEN quilt.  

Suitable for confident beginners through experts!

If you like HALLOWEEN, and EMBROIDERY & STITCHING, you'll want to check out these SPIRITED TEA TOWELS


and all the CRABAPPLE HILL patterns here for all the seasons.

 We have many, many new fabrics in the store and new models to tempt you!

And many pages of NEW FABRICS to browse, so kick back, relax for a few minutes and enjoy this treat!

I love these two new groups, 





 Also a new favorite design group is GRAPHIC 45 from Wilmington.  See all of these fabrics, including BIRDSONG including a classic PANEL with their signature vintage look, here:


 I've been working on a fun project for awhile, in between other tasks.  My sewing room is a disaster!  LOL

Michael Miller does this BIG STRIPE in a couple of colors.  I started with the CLEMENTINE colored stripe, cut it in lengthwise strips, and used a 60-degree ruler to cut and then sew HEXAGONS.  Quite delightful!  Let the fabric do the work!

I made just a small one, but you can see the pattern for a larger version, which uses 4-1/2 yards of big stripe to make a quilt which finishes approx. 56 x 73 inches.
