Anderson's Farm layout
had a great time at the show in Wichita: beautiful quilts, sweet
people, and a nice location. We are home for a few weeks before we pack
up and head to the show in Edmond OK July 8 - 9 (9:00-5:00 both days).
The show will be held at the Memorial Road Church of Christ (Summit
Building), 2221 E Memorial Road, Edmond. If you'd like more info you
can visit the guild website at http://www.edmondquiltguild.us/index.html
One of the most enjoyable parts of vending at shows is getting to meet
new people. Saturday afternoon a lady stopped by with two very sweet
children. One immediately noticed the project displayed on our front
table and read it to her brother "That's it ..... I'm calling Santa".
She went on to mention mom had to call Santa on her brother last year.
You can imagine the course of the conversation from that point with both
children explaining everything one would need to know about the Santa
If you'd like a fun conversation starter, we have kits available for
"That's It". Your $24.95 kit includes the pattern, all fabrics for the
pillow (back included) and wool for applique. If you'd prefer to use
your own materials, the pattern is available for $9.50.
Being inquisitive children, they continued
to explore everything in the booth. Our "Liberty" table runner caught
the attention of the little boy. He sheepishly asked if those were eyes
on the quilt (he was referring to the white flowers on each end of the
table runner)......quilting through the eyes of a child.....
If you'd like to make your own "Liberty" (aka eyeball) table runner, we
have kits available. Your $58.95 kit includes the pattern, background
fabrics (notice the beautifully pieced background), wool for applique,
borders and binding. It finishes 25" x 50".
The only photo we have of this piece was taken when it was hanging on the wall. Both ends are identical.
The Row by Row Experience began Tues, Jun
21. If you're not familiar with Row by Row it's basically a giant shop
hop with stores in all 50 states and Canada participating. You visit
participating shops between Jun 21 and Sep 6 and pick up a free
pattern. The theme this year is Home Sweet Home.
Most shops offer kits so you can make your row exactly like theirs. We
have a cotton version available for $15.95 and wool version (cotton
backgrounds) for $24.95.
Unfortunately, we cannot mail kits until after the event ends Nov 1. If
you're out of the area and would like to reserve a kit for mailing, let
Most shops participating in Row by Row also
opted for a personalized fabric license plate. Ours is available for
$5.95. We are able to mail license plates now so let us know if you'd
like one. We would also love to see what you create with your license
plates. Last year we saw quilts and totes made using the plates.
We've been having a lot of fun with
Anderson's Farm. We're sold out but Lynette will be starting another
group later this year. You can sign up via her website at http://www.littlequiltstore.com.au/
Debby is still learning how to use her leg
scooter apparatus. She is very appreciative of all the cards and well
wishes she's received from so many of you. If things work out, we are
hopeful she will be back to the shop in a few weeks.
We'll be back next week with photos of a few blocks from The Raven
quilt. We know many of you are eager to see what we're doing with the
pattern. See you soon.
