New spring quilts

Kay and her niece had a fun time on Saturday meeting lots of new people who were out shop hopping.  Several people commented how pretty the foliage was on the drive out to the shop.  We have to agree -- we love being a little off the beaten trail. 
Our Community Sampler block of the month begins this month.  The quilt uses a combination of Moda's Edyta Sitar's Heart's Content and Howard Marcus' Collection Community lines.  It finishes 84" x 84".  It's available as a block of the month - $19.95 per month for 12 months.  If you'd prefer to get it as a kit, we have that option available also.

We haven't had a chance to get the quilt properly photographed but the side borders are half square triangles. 
Another spring quilt we absolutely love is "Chelsea Garden".  Much of the fabric used in it is from Blackbird Designs' Hyde Park line.  We changed the pattern (doesn't that surprise you!) and ours finishes 50" x 68".  Your $68.95 kit includes fabrics for the top and binding.  The pattern is in the book "You're Invited" which is sold separately.  If you buy the book and kit, we are offering a 30% discount on the book.  If you'd like only the book, the cost is $25.95.
In keeping with the spring theme, we'd like to share "Love Birds".  The designer finished hers as a pillow but we chose to finish ours as a wall hanging.  Ours finished 10" x 16".  Your $21.95 kit includes the pattern, fabric for the top, wool for applique, and backing fabric.

You may be scratching your head and thinking the verse doesn't sound exactly can make yours sound right by putting "Love is Patient" on the top border and "Love is Kind" on the bottom border.
Before we close we'd like to sincerely thank everyone for all the love shown us during our time of sorrow.  We received too many e-mails to respond to each one individually but please know we read each one and appreciate your taking the time to write.

See you soon.

Darlene and Debby
