New pieced quilt
week we are pleased to share something we've been working on for quite
some time.....we didn't mean for it to take so long but life has a way
of changing and taking unexpected curves that throw monkey wrenches in
"Community Sampler" is our newest block of the month. As you can see,
it's a pieced quilt. We've been wanting to offer more pieced quilts for
those who aren't as crazy about applique as us. We used a combination
of Edyta Sitar's Hearts Content and Howard Marcus' Collection Community
fabrics to make the quilt. It is our design and finishes 84" x 84".
The block of the month includes the pattern, fabric to make the top, and
binding. Cost is $19.95 per month for 12 months. If you'd prefer to
get everything all at once, the cost is $239.40.
We plan to start this block of the month in April. Please call
(479-372-7403) or e-mail (email@example.com) to reserve your
While we're on the topic of things in the
works and super secrets......we are very excited to share some news
we've been bursting to share for over a year. Jo Morton is now
designing with Moda fabrics. We learned of her move over a year ago but
assured her that her secret was safe with us -- it was her news to
share, not ours.
Our Moda man said Jo's first line should be shown at spring market in
May. We also understand she will continue her Little Women's Club. We
realize many of you participated in the program in the past and grew
tired of it so we are apprehensive about offering the program since it
requires a financial and time commitment. If you would be interested in
participating in a Little Women's Club, let us know. If the interest
is there we'd love to offer it.
Pictured below are previous club offerings to give you an idea of what the club is about in case you're not familiar with it.
We have openings in our Anderson's Farm
button of the month program. Unfortunately, we don't know what the
finished quilt will look like (it's a mystery) but if you're familiar
with Lynette Anderson you know it's going to be very sweet.
Finished size is approximately 34" x 48". We have two options: #1 -
hand painted button and pattern for $16.95 or #2 - hand painted button,
pattern, and fabric for $19.95. The program runs for 10 months.
Kay has stitched the first month and is eagerly awaiting arrival of
block 2. If you're participating in this program and would like us to
add the thread and/or stabilizer please let us know. Debby will process
blocks of the month around March 10.
Our shipment of the spring issue of Simply
Vintage arrived yesterday. We can't say enough about how much we enjoy
each issue of the magazine. If you're on automatic to receive a copy,
Debby will get your order processed. If you'd like to be sure you don't
miss an issue, please let us know and we'll add you to the list. Price
We're very excited our friend Robin made the
cover of the magazine again. We have kits available for her "The
Bluebird Sings". The kit includes the background fabrics, wool for
applique, and binding. The quilt finishes 20" x 20". You'll need the
Simply Vintage magazine for the pattern - kit cost is $25.95.
Debby recently finished a project we're sure
you're going to love. Her "Little Critter Purse" is so cute that we
all want to stop everything and make one. She said the instructions are
very clear -- and the zipper isn't hard to install using the pattern
instructions. The bag finishes 4" x 6" so is the perfect size for
sewing notions or make up or drawing supplies for the grandkids or just
Your $19.95 kit includes the pattern, fabric for the bag, wool for
applique (you could substitute fabric if desired) and the sports
zipper.......yep, no having to hunt the zipper -- we supply it for you.
Since this is getting rather long, we will
close. We have a busy week next week preparing for the Dallas quilt
show. The show will be held at the Dallas Market Hall, NW corner of
I35E & Market Center Blvd, March 11-13. Hours on the 11th and 12th
are 10-5 and hours on the 13th are 12-5. For more info you can check
out the guild website at http://quiltersguildofdallas.org/
We'll share other shows and events as the time gets closer to the event. See you soon.
