Some fun fall projects

Kay had a wonderful time visiting with everyone at the quilt show in Joplin last week.  A lot goes into getting ready for a show.....deciding what to take is sometimes agonizing.  We want to take everything but know space dictates we leave some goodies at home.  Below are photos of the before we load and after set up.  We sometimes wonder just how we are able to cram all those goodies in an SUV!
We are loving these cooler days.....perfect stitching weather.  If you combine simple piecing and rich autumn tones you'll discover "Humble Hands".  The quilt finishes 58" x 70" so is the perfect snuggling under size.  It would be beautiful hung on the wall, draped over the foot of a large bed, as a bed covering for a small bed or neatly folded and tucked among a stack of quilts to add a spark of color.

Your $99.95 kit includes the pattern, fabric for the top and binding.  Please note the pattern is in Quiltmania #115 and the entire magazine is included in the kit. 
Autumn Grace is a quick and fun to stitch project.  Kay hand quilted hers using Valdani perle cotton #12 and the big stitch.  Quick, easy and done.  Your $21.95 kit includes the pattern, background cotton, wool for applique and binding.  Finishes 8" x 12 1/2".  If you'd prefer to use your own supplies, the pattern is available for $10.

You'll receive two designs in the pattern (as shown below).
We shouldn't have to wait much longer for the arrival of Kim Diehl's book "Simple Harvest".  If you've preordered, we have you on the list.  If you haven't preordered, please do so now so you won't miss out on this great book in Kim's unique style. You can e-mail or call 479-372-7403 to preorder.

Simple Harvest includes 19 fall themed project including lap quilts, wall quilts, kitchen towels, sewing notions, place mats and more.  It also includes recipes and decorating tips.  128 pages $28.99
We'll be back next week with more to inspire you.  See you soon.
