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 http://sewgraceful.blogspot.com/ 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 there.....as 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.
