QUILTS & MORE… Meet in the Middle

I love it when I do a project and then completely forget about it until it arrives in the mail or I suddenly see it online! Its like a surprise and a memory all at once. I know it sounds a bit silly, since I did make the project, but it happens to me all the time! In this season's QUILTS & MORE magazine [American Patchwork & Quilting, Winter Issue], we have a few fun pillows featured.   And since I knew you might want to whip up some for your summer or fall decorating, we have some kits!         Kits include enough fabric to make (4) of these yummy little projects, including fabric and buttons kits for all 4. You will need to purchase the QUILTS & MORE magazine for the instructions. Click HERE for more info on the kits. Have a great day…

On the 9th Day of Christmas

  On the  9th Day of Christmas my true love gave to me, nine Ladies Dancing. I've always wanted an entourage, one that didn't involve my children or pets so perhaps nine Ladies Dancing would do it. I wonder what the neighbors would think if everywhere I went, there were nine Ladies Dancing around me? It might make going to the store a bit difficult but it sure woiuld be entertaining to walk down to our local coffee shop. Can you imagine the entrance we'd make?  But since we didn't have nearly enough dancing ladies around here to share with you all, we thought we'd share our popular MILKY WAY: CHRISTMAS STARS kit. We offered this one in our red and taupe version at a recent show and many of our customers asked if…

On the 7th Day of Christmas

On the  7th Day of Christmas my true love gave to me, seven Swans a Swimming . Now swans are beatiful creatures but we don't have a pond. And if the hub is not up for a chicken coop, i don't suppose he would be up for builidng me a pond.  So I guess I will have to trade in the swans as well. I  guess I am turning out to be a bit of a bad gift receiver! Instead we thought we might kit up a few of our newest THREAD PATTERNS. First up, our LE RADISH PATTERN KIT. Each kit has enough fabric, ribbon, wire and wool to make 1 large radish and enough fabric to make a coordinating smaller radish. A fun project to make for some pincushions or for a little table decor!     Next up, the TOOTSIE…

On the 1st Day of Christmas….

On the 1st Day of Christmas my true love sent to me, a partridge in a pear tree.  But since we didn't know what to do with a partridge, we added a little Peppermint Pops kit. And since we weren't really sure about shipping you all a pear tree, we added a Mini Stocking pattern with every kit order placed.     We are in the process of making our own version and are once again having so much fun with the blocks…   This is what your kit will contain… yummy!     … the free goodie that comes with the kit today.   Please click HERE for more information.

Housekeeping…

Not the actual kind unfortunately, since that really needs to be happening around here right about now, but the quilting kind. Although if anyone has any offers to help with the actual kind…. well, let's just say that I am ready and willing to make a deal :-)!!   Just a couple of things that many of you might want to know…   SOLD OUT All of the Halloween Pops have shipped as of last week. This kit was so crazy popular that we re-ordered fabric several times and made as many kits as we could. We are still getting emails about whether or not we might be able to make more but we just can't. We are so sorry for those of you who missed out. We really did try to make as many as we possibly could!   [On a little side…

We interrupt this program…

Pattern Showcase #3

You know how we are about our projects…. we love those quilts nice and big and our mini patterns, nice and little. Its a perfect combination in the studio. If we get tired of piecing, we move on to our little mini projects for a totally different pace and then back again. It really is a good way to go, especially if, like me, you enjoy the satisfaction of getting something little done in the midst of a larger project.   So along those lines, introducing  A PEAR IN A TREE. Do you get it? As opposed to A Partridge in a Pear Tree? Yah, well, my husband didn't get it either but I entertained myself!   … perfect to make with one of those yummy little MODA CANDY packs or any of your favorite little piles of scraps. These make perfect ornaments or decorations of…

Pattern Showcase #2

Whereas Lollipops might have been my favorite yesterday… and maybe for another 2 weeks or so… the moment that I start to decorate for winter, this will surely be my absolute FAVORITE, as fickle as I am :-)! Introducing…. MILKY WAY. This classic star pattern was our answer to a twinkling night sky or one exploding with fireworks. We loved the idea of creating different size stars of the exact same blocks, simply by using different sizes of strips with which to make them. The result is a sparkling quilt full of movement while it is actually a basic, straight forward block set in a giant nine-patch. We love how it turned out!!   This is the TAPESTRY version…   … by choosing the taupes and reds with a background of several different cream prints, the pattern feels even more classic and timeless. … those nice…
