The animals

Last week our newsletter wasn't delivered to any of our Cox subscribers on Thursday.  After several live chats, emails and phone calls, the problem fixed itself.  Rather than try to go through our subscriber list and identify Cox subscribers, we decided to just resend the newsletter on Friday.  In the future if you don't get our weekly update, you can visit our blog at  Each week we put our newsletter on our blog.

After a quick few days at home, we are in Wichita for the Common Threads Regional Quilt Show.  We're bringing a brand new project to share with the folks up well as lots and lots of other projects.  Our newest blocks of the month, The Animals and Winter Sampler have been quilted and we can't wait for you to see them.  We also will bring a couple blocks of our version of Blackbird Designs' "The Raven" quilt.

The shop will be open regular hours Thurs and Sat.

This week we'd like to share a few projects with an animal theme.  "Bluebird Sings" is by Briar Roots.  We love what Robin creates; she is among one of our must visit booths at quilt market.  Your $34.95 kit includes background fabrics (notice the pretty pieced background), wool for applique, borders, and binding.  It finishes 20" x 20".
"Weedz the Barn Cat" is also by Briar Roots.  It also finishes 20" x 20" so you could swap out pieces during the year.  Your $34.95 kit includes the background fabrics, wool for applique, border, binding and the rusty bell for the cat's collar.
We love how Debby changed Lynette Anderson's "A Dog's Life" pattern.  She used wool instead of cotton and added some darling wooden buttons.  Your $28.95 kit includes the pattern, background fabric, wool for applique (the hill is cotton), border, binding, and 3 buttons. 
"The Animals" is our newest block of the month. Each month for 12 months you'll receive a full size pattern, background fabric and wool for applique.  During the 12th month you'll receive border fabric, wool for the border, and binding.  The quilt finishes 48" x 53".  Cost per month is $19.95.
Just in case the photo above isn't enough to make you oooohhh and aaaahhh over those darling animals, we created a collage of some of our favorite animals. 
It's looking like we are moving into the dog days of summer.  What better way to spend those hot afternoons than with a stitching project?  We hope you are inspired to create.

We'll be back next Thursday with more fun projects.  See you soon.

Darlene and Debby
