New Yazzii Project Pouch bags

Hopefully you were able to get out and enjoy a few days of springlike weather this past week.  We noticed buds on several neighborhood trees and that our irises have started growing.  Unfortunately, these tender growths are going to need quilts if the weather that's predicted happens.

Our newest quilt, Home is Best, will keep you warm during these last few months of winter.  The majority of it is made with Diamond Textiles' brushed cotton line Hickory Ridge.  The fabric has a brushed side which feels almost like flannel and a nonbrushed side which feels like a regular woven fabric.  We chose the brushed side as the exposed side so our quilt is super soft.  The applique backgrounds are printed cotton and the applique is wool.  The quilt finishes 53" x 62".  Your $76.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the top, wool for applique, border and binding.

If you'd prefer to use your own supplies, the pattern is available for $9.

Reserve your kit by going to our website or emailing or calling 479-372-7403. 
Do you ever order something with certain expectations but when you receive it you are blown away with how far it exceeded your expectations?  Darlene recently ordered a new Yazzii project pouch to help organize her sewing bag.  She said she expected it would be nice but it far exceeded what she expected out of it.  She was so excited that we decided to carry them in the shop.

The project pouch contains 7 pockets; 5 have see through plastic so you can see contents.  The plastic is gusseted to hold larger items.  The closed size is 5 1/4" x 8 1/2" -- the perfect size to slip in your pocketbook or sewing bag.  Available colors include fuchsia, aqua, green or purple.  $21.50 each.

Apparently others have found them useful as they're on backorder with an anticipated delivery date of late Feb.  We are taking preorders -- visit our website or email or call 479-372-7403 and we'll get you on the list. 
Our "when it's gone, it's gone" kit this week is by Simply Put.  It finishes 8" x 10" so could be finished as a small wall hanging like ours or be framed.  We have only one kit left - $12.95.
For those doing our Fairytale Cottage $10 block of the month.  This month you received your second block with fabric swatches.  The swatches are choices for backing fabric for the quilt -- not background fabrics as stated on the handout.  Our fingers got ahead of our brain when we typed the handout -- sorry for the confusion.

On a side note -- if you prefer something totally different for your backing fabric feel free to browse fabric on our website and give us a call.  We'll be happy to substitute whatever you'd like. 
Kay had a great time visiting with the quilt guild members in Ponca City Oklahoma.  We're excited so many people are excited about wool.

We'll be back next week with a super darling sewing set.  See you soon!

Darlene and Debby
