Quilt market review
Kay gives you her impressions of fall quilt market, we'd like to share a
very cute Christmas project. Debby stitched and finished this set of 6
ornaments. Your $24.95 kit includes the winter 2015 issue of Primitive
Quilts & Projects magazine which contains the patterns (and lots of
other great patterns), fabric, wool, buttons and 2 wooden hoops for
finishing. If you have the magazine, we'll deduct the magazine cost.
If you'd like more wooden hoops, we have them available for $2.50 each.
If we had to sum up fall quilt market in one
word, that word would be "quiet". Many of our favorite primitive
designers didn't attend. Several designers commented they had nothing
new because, like us, there's not enough hours in the day to tend to
family commitments, work outside the home, take care of aging relatives
and have energy left to design.
We fell in love with Jo Morton's new line, Reflections. In fact, we
loved it so much we ordered the entire line. Fabric should arrive in
Jan and we are taking pre-orders for fat quarter bundles. 34 fat
quarters for $93.50
We also liked Blackbird Designs new line,
Sweet Cherry Wine. We are considering picking and choosing our
favorites and ordering some. What do you think about it?
Barb and Alma also have a new book coming
out in February featuring their quilt "Ripe for the Picking" which uses
prints from their Sweet Cherry Wine line. The book is $28 and we are
taking pre-orders for it.
Primitive Gatherings' newest pattern,
Liberty Gatherings, should be available soon. If you'd like us to
reserve a copy for you, please e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) or
call 479-372-7403. The quilt features wool applique and piecing. $30
We picked up several new spring projects and
will share them with you as we move into next year. Meanwhile, we'll
continue sharing new projects to get you in the mood for the holiday
season which is just around the corner.
We will close with something we never thought we'd see in
November......the forsythia bush at our neighbor's house is blooming.
Look closely and you'll yellow blossoms. Crazy weather!!
