New project in Primitive Quilts Winter 2017 issue

Since the winter issue of Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine will arrive shortly we thought we'd share Kay's project that's contained in the magazine.  "Sparkles" is a fun quilt to make with lots of pretty stitching to add interest.  Darlene's beautiful quilting brought it to life.  The quilt finishes 41" x 43".  We have kits available for $36.95.  Please note you will need the winter 2017 issue of the Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine for the pattern.

Kay used Valdani perle cotton size 12 in colors P2 and O775.  We can include a ball of each in your kit for an additional $4.95 per ball. 
If you'd like to reserve a copy of the winter issue of Primitive Quilts & Projects, please e-mail ( or call 479-372-7403.  We'll hold a copy for you. 
Speaking of stitching and embellishing.....we have so much fun making Crabapple Hill Designs pieces.  Getting out the box of crayons to color the piece always brings back a flood of childhood memories.  Remember the excitement of getting a new box of crayons?  And how they smelled?  Oh how exciting if the box was the giant one with the built in sharpener!  Such fun and simple times.

Debby did a fabulous job coloring and stitching "When Witches Fly".  Your $22.95 kit includes the pattern, fabric for the top and binding.  It finishes 15" x 16 1/2".  If you'd prefer to use your own supplies, we have the pattern available for $9.95.
Before we close we'd like to share news of two upcoming quilt shows.  The Country Fare Quilters Guild show will be held Oct 20 (9:00-5:00) & 21 (9:00-4:00) at the Claremore Community Center, 2301 N Sioux, Claremore OK.  Admission is $5 and children under 12 are admitted free.  For more info visit

Kay will have a booth filled with all sorts of things to inspire and entice you.  She will also be happy to demonstrate the Apliquick method of applique.  You'll be amazed at the results you can achieve using this method.
