Scraps of My Life
incredibly odd weather to usher in July! It rained so hard on Sunday
that we had to make a quick run to the shop to dig out our little
trenches to move the water to keep the shop from flooding. The grass is
normally looking a little tired by this time of year but it looks very
healthy which means lots more mowing.
We ended our newsletter last week by saying we were hopeful we'd have a
wonderful new pattern to share with you. Good news! We have a
wonderful new pattern to share. "Scraps of my Life" has many of the
things we love to stitch: sheep, birds, flowers, houses.....you get the
idea.....it's filled with everything that's just us. It is made
entirely of Diamond Textile fabrics -- we are working to get all the
fabrics to make our sample. The quilt finishes 47" x 51 1/2" but could
easily be made larger by adding more borders.
We are planning to offer this is a block of the month later this year
but in the interim wanted to offer you the pattern. We'll keep you
posted on our progress.
If you're planning to be at the Edmond show, we'll have patterns in our
booth. If you're not planning to attend the show, Debby will have a few
copies at the shop. We're happy to reserve a copy for you. $28 - 32
pages with full size templates
Darlene recently finished "Follow me to
Bethlehem" and we love how it looks. Your $32.95 kit includes the
pattern, background flannel, wool for applique, and binding. It
finishes 10 1/2" x 33 1/2". If you start now, you'll have plenty of
time to get it finished before Christmas.
The fall issue of Primitive Quilts and
Projects should arrive soon. If you're on automatic to receive a copy,
we'll process your order as soon as we receive the magazine. If you're
not and would like to be, give us a call (479-372-7403) or e-mail
(email@example.com) and we'll get you set up. This issue is
particularly special to us because Kay and her niece, Erin, have a
project in it.
"What a Hoot" finishes 15 1/2" x 15 1/2" so
is the perfect size to fit on an Ackfeld table stand. If you'd like to
preorder a kit, let us know. Your $19.95 kit includes the background
fabric, wool for applique, borders, and binding. You will need to
purchase the magazine for the pattern.
