New kits and new books

Yesterday was special - we saw our first baby deer of the season.  He'd just been born and mama was cleaning him while he nursed.  We also recently saw our first ladybug of the season.  It's those little things in life that cause us to smile.

This week we have a couple of new things to share with you.  Kay's newest design "Floral Elegance" finishes 67 1/2" x 81".  Your $104.95 kit includes the pattern, all fabric to make the top and binding.  The shapes are large which makes this a quilt that will be quick to finish. 
We can certainly relate to the sentiment expressed on this next design.   If you or someone you know feels the same way, this would make a sweet piece to stitch.  We've finished ours as a small wall hanging; your $18.95 kit includes the background sandcastle fabric (which is prestamped), a needle, embroidery floss, fabrics for borders, and binding.

Let us know if we can reserve an "I can't handle" kit (or two).
We are putting together another Quiltmania order and wanted to share several of their new books.  If you'd like to reserve a copy of any of these, please e-mail

Dawn Heese's book "From the Linen Closet" is filled with applique and pieced quilts.  Many of you are probably familiar with Dawn's work as she's visited several local guilds.  $51.95
Hat Creek Quilts by Dierdre Bond-Abel's book "Hat Creek Quilts" is filled with lots of beautiful applique projects.  We're showing a sampling of them below.  She tends to use bright fabrics.....and you know we would use our beautiful primitive fabrics.  We'll be happy to put together kits for any quilt in the book.  $49.95
If you like art type quilts, Segalaine Schweitzer's book "A Trip Around the Wool Continues" is for you.  Instructions are in both French and English.  $45.95
We're putting the finishing touches on several new projects we'll unveil at the show in Kansas City next week.  Darlene will have our newest block of the month "Simply Vintage" quilted and we'll share photos next week.  Until then, we hope you get to see something magical in nature.

See you soon.

Darlene and Debby
