If you love the primitive look, this is the place for you. We also are longarm quilters and would love to quilt your creation.

If you love animals, you'll love our newest sample
week we shared some blocks of the month which were close to being
closed. Several of you were disappointed to miss out on Lynette
Anderson's "Anderson Farm" (probably after you saw that adorable pig
driving the tractor). We contacted Lynette and learned she has a few
openings through her shop. Keep in mind the pricing on her website is
the Australian dollar which equates to approximately 73 cents US
currency. If you'd like more info you can visit her website at http://www.littlequiltstore.com.au/
Our newest block of the month, The Animals, was designed by Satomi
Funamoto. We played around with different options and decided to offer
this as a 12 month program. During the first 11 months, you'll receive
one block (one month you'll get two blocks). The 12th month you'll get
borders and binding. The pattern is included in the program cost.
Unfortunately, the pattern is out of print so the only way you can get
it is by signing up for the block of the month.
Background fabrics are all from Diamond Textiles and applique is wool.
The quilt finishes 48" x 53" . Monthly cost is $19.95 for 12 months.
We received our shipment of Primitive Quilts
& Projects magazine. It's hard to believe this is their 5th year
anniversary issue. We can remember when we were one of only a handful
of stores stocking the magazine. We look forward to another 5 years
with Gretchen, Jeni and Judy. If you'd like to reserve a copy, please
e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call 479-372-7403 and we'll
hold a copy for you. $9.99
We also received our second shipment of Yoko
Saito's book, 138 Original Applique Designs. We have to admit the
cover of the book is pretty boring......c'mon......an umbrella for the
cover when there's so many other darling motifs inside?!
The book is divided into 6 sections:
Animals in the Zoo, Designs for Children, My Favorite Things, Botanical
Motifs, The Alphabet, and Borders/Repeatable Patterns. We chose just a
few of the 138motifs to share with you......aren't these much more
appealing than an umbrella?!
If you'd like to reserve a copy of the book, please let us know. 232 pages, $42.95
Since the theme this week seems to be
animals, we'd like to share a sweet little piece Debby made. "Little
Bird" finishes 6 1/2" x 6 1/2" and is the perfect size to fit on a
Ackfeld stand; however, we chose to hang ours on an Ackfeld hangar.
This would make a sweet gift for Mom on her special day -- it's a quick
stitch and very easy finish so you'll have time to complete it before
Mother's Day, May 8. Kit includes the pattern, background fabric, and
printed ribbon for $9.95.
Before we close we'd like to remind you
about the Eureka! Quilters show May 6 & 7 at the Inn of the Ozarks
Convention Center in Eureka Springs. Admission is $5 and the show is
open 9:00-4:00 both days. For more info you can find the guild on
Facebook (eurekaquiltersguild) or e-mail email@example.com or
The 7th annual Airing of the Quilts will also be held May 6 & 7
(9:00-5:00) at Bell Park, 1050 Bell Park Road in Greenwood AR.
Admission is $5. For more info, call 479-806-1081 or check out Facebook
Since Sew Graceful is kind of in the middle between Greenwood and Eureka
Springs we suggest a stop here on Saturday as you're traveling from one
fun show to the next one.
