Hi all!

How are you all doing?  As usual, I'm running fast, and finding even more fun things to do along the way! It is just such a great time of year!  :)

Very exciting! Check out the latest Harvey County NOW magazine's Fall issue! 

Big thanks to Wendy Nugent for the great story and pictures of me & Lily. Free copies available at our Main St. location or check it out on-line.

Today, Thursday at 10 a.m. Mary's Sewing Club will meet.  All are welcome.  Memberships are $36/year or $5 drop-in fee.

Today Mary will be previewing my SHOP HOP QUILT.  Yes, you can get a quick lesson on how simple this quilt is to make!  I am not kidding!  LOL

 If you can't join us today, stop in any time to see the quilt now, and be sure to come during the QUILT SHOP HOP, October 4, 5 & 6 when BLOCK KITS will be available in all 11 shops.  My quilt doesn't take much more fabric than just the block kits.  Really!  I am not kidding! :)

All the different SHOP QUILTS can now be seen on the Shop Hop web site:

Then click on "2013 Quilts" at the top of the page.

Next week, 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 this bed-size


using Marti Michell's pattern & templates.

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

Or choose to make your own unique quilt, 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.


We will start a HALLOWEEN APPLIQUÉ BLOCK A MONTH quilt class in October.

 Mary just won Blue & Red Ribbons at the State Fair on her last two appliqué class quilts.  (She beat herself!)  Come learn from an award winning, talented teacher!


combines piecing and appliqué for a fun HALLOWEEN quilt.  Mary has expertly selected all the fabrics and the kits will be available monthly.

Suitable for confident beginners through experts!

 For more great tips on letting the fabric do the work, check out my NEW PATTERN!   

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!

Big Stripe:


 I've written a pattern with detailed instructions on how to cut the stripe with Marti Michell's 60-degree Triangle Ruler.

It is available to order here:

Charlotte’s Bordered Big Stripe Hexagon Quilt Pattern

 I made just a small one, but you can see a 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.
