Flannel is perfect for snuggling
have been in an ice box these past few days. We love frozen Reese's
cups and think we could just set the bag in our warehouse and have all
the frozen candy we want this week. Cold weather causes us to think
about snuggling up and what better snuggling fabric than flannel.
Darlene put together a super simple flannel quilt using Primitive
Gatherings' Wool Needle line. We have our sample machine quilted but it
would be a great quilt to be hand quilting using the big stitch and
Valdani perle cotton. It finishes 54" x 63" - perfect snuggling size.
Kits are $46.95. Let us know if we can reserve one for you.
Our $10 block of the month, Pretty Petals,
kicked off this month and we have openings. As many of you know, we've
offered a $10 block of the month each year since we opened almost 6
years ago. There's never any sign up fee; nor is a finishing kit
required -- you'll get all the fabric and wool you need for top plus the
binding. The quilt finishes 43" x 43".
This year we are changing things just a tiny bit. We based our block of
the month on a pattern in a book so the first month will cost $18 and
will include fabric and wool for one block plus the book (retail value
$25.95). Months 2-12 are $10 per month. We have an optional thread kit

While we're on the subject of blocks of the
month, we want to share another which will begin in February. Thanks to
Jean A for making Spooky Hollow. We adore the additions she made --
like the nail polish on the skeleton - how innovative! The backgrounds
all are Diamond Textiles fabrics and the applique is wool. The quilt
finishes 46"x 58". Cost is month is $19.95 per month for 9 months;
pattern is sold separately for $20. If you'd like to reserve a spot for
this very sweet Halloween quilt, please contact us at 479-372-7403 or
