A fun Halloween quilt

We don't know about you but we have to stop and scratch our head and wonder how did the Memorial Day holiday creep up so quickly.  It seems like just a few weeks ago we were celebrating Thanksgiving.  We know many of you are busy preparing for the long weekend so we will keep it short this week.

As many of you know, we aren't big fans of Halloween.  It's not that we don't pass out candy to the few trick or treaters who happen to stop by our's the creepy scary ghoulish Halloween that we don't care for.  There's absolutely no way under the sun the Halloween project we recently finished could be called creepy.

We think our version of "Halloween" turned out just darling.  The center is a preprinted panel.  It's one of the highest quality printings we've ever seen; one has to look closely to see it's preprinted applique.  Your $46.95 kit includes the pattern, applique panel, borders, binding, and backing.  It finishes 37" x 48".  The fabrics are all very high quality flannel so it's super snuggly.  Let us know if we can reserve a kit for you.
We are so excited for Lydia Nelson of Dreamy Quilts.  She debuted her first line with Moda "Darling Little Dickens" at quilt market in Salt Lake City.  Her mother, Loralee, owns Mockingbird Moon yarn in downtown Rogers.

Lydia's fabric is so darn cute.....but we have a more primitive we were super excited that Loralee will be carrying the fabric.  It'll be great for not only quilts but children's clothing (even grown up people clothing would be cute using it) and home dec projects. 
One other thing we absolutely must share with many of you know we have been fans of Jo Morton for many years.  Her first line with Moda fabric, Gratitude, was shown at quilt market.  We loved it on paper but when we saw it in person we were head over heals in love with much in love that we bought the entire line.  We can count the entire lines of fabric we've bought on one hand and have fingers left over so you know we must really, really love it.

It ships in August and we're already plotting....errr....planning what we will do with it. 
We are almost finished cutting kits in preparation for a couple of quilt shows in June.  The Green Country Quilters Guild show will be held in Tulsa OK June 3-4 (10:00-5:00 both days).  The show is in the Central Park Hall at Expo Square, 4145 E 21st St.  Visit for more info and a coupon for $1 off admission.

The Common Threads Regional Quilt Show will be held in Wichita KS June 16-18 (10:00-5:00 all 3 days).  The show is in the Century II Expo Hall, 225 W Douglas.  Visit for more info.
We hope your enjoy your Memorial Day weekend.  We'll be back next week with more to inspire you.  See you soon.
