Our version of The Raven quilt

Kay and Erin had a great time at the Springfield show.  It was Erin's first time to help at a show so she was on sensory overload with wonderful booths and beautiful quilts in the show......we're quite sure she was close to the max on her phone photo memory.

Welcome to all the new subscribers.  We're so happy you are letting us share our love of what we do with you each Thursday.

We are super excited to be able to share a photo of our version of Blackbird Designs' "The Raven" quilt.  Kay's been working on the sample and it's ready for quilting.  Our backgrounds are all Diamond Textiles fabrics.  We added a border to ours and your kit will include all fabrics for the border as well as the border instructions and templates. The block of the month begins in October and lasts 11 months.  $24.95 per month which includes all fabric for the top, borders, binding, and border instructions.  The book is required and is available for an additional $28.

If you'd like to reserve a spot, give Darlene a call at 479-372-7403. 
While we're on the subject of Blackbird Designs, we have an update on the Secret Garden booklet.  Alma notified us the booklet is at the printer's office this week and should be shipped to Moda next week.  Moda processes orders quickly so we are hopeful the wait is finally almost over.

We appreciate your patience in waiting.  If you're not on the list but would like us to reserve a copy for you, please e-mail ( or call 479-372-7403.  Cost is $16
We received another new Yoko Saito book, "Yoko Saito's Traditional Block Patterns".  It includes patterns for 66 blocks and is a beautifully photographed book.  It includes patterns for triangle blocks, nine-patch blocks, basket blocks, star blocks (just to name a few)......a great additional to your library.  $32.95
Several weeks ago we shared a photo of a cute crow quilt in progress.  Jane H finished our sample and we're pleased to be able to share it with you.  Your $22.95 kit includes fabric for the top and binding.  The pattern is sold separately for $9.  The pattern contains instructions to make an additional two quilts. 
We hope you're enjoying these last few weeks of summer.  As you're putting together your fall calendar don't forget to add the Saline Quilters a Guild biennial show. "Quilting in the Heart of Arkansas" will be held Friday, Sep 16 9:00-7:00 and Sat, Sep 17 9:00-3:00 at the Benton County Event Center on I-30 in Benton, Arkansas.
