Quilter's Project Bag

We have been having some problems with our website.  If you are having problems getting on our website, please call 479-372-7403 or e-mail to place your order.  We hope to have the issue fixed soon.

If you're on social media much you probably have noticed a lot of new items.  That is because spring quilt market was to be held mid-May.  We have heard rumors of a virtual market for shop owners but haven't seen anything specific about it.  In the interim, we will be content to follow up with our favorite designers to bring you news of new things.

Kathy Cardiff released her new book "Harvest Garden" which contains 16 projects.  The book includes wall hangings, table mats, pillows, a zip bag, and sewing notions.  80 pages $27.99
We also received Quiltmania's newest magazine, #137.  Because of the virus, the magazine will not be available at any of the big national retailers.  We expect this issue to sell out quickly so don't delay if you want a copy.  $14.99
Our friend Wendy Sheppard's recent blog post got us so excited about the Quilter' Project Bag that we had to do some research on the bag.  The bag has a front external horizontal zipper across the cover of the bag for your keys, phone and other personal items. Inside the bag there are four sleeves and total of 19 pockets, 18 of them see-through as well as a pen or tool storage section.  The bag measures 13" x 10 1/2" x 5".

We are taking orders for bags.  Available colors are teal, pink, green, navy or purple.  Please e-mail or call 479-372-7403 with your choice(s).  $107.95

Visit Wendy's blog for photos showing the bag being used by a real person. 
Our newest pattern, Vintage Pinwheels, is available.  We used charm squares from Betsy Chutchain's "Harriet's Handwork" line of fabric from Moda.  Your $44.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the top, borders and binding.  The quilt finishes 46" x 46". 
This week we are sharing the last of our Show and Share photos.  Of course, we love to see what you're working on and share it to inspire others.

Carol Schwartz shared a photo of a project that was in Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine.  Carol writes "I did substitute the center with a tree other than the eagle."  Carol has the same attitude as us - it's OK to change a pattern to make it fit our tastes. 
Speaking of changing things.  April Layher shared a photo of her Churning 14 quilt.  She writes "Thought you might like to see my churning 14 too in blues and cheddars. Bought the pattern at your shop. Of course not quilted yet. Lol"

Oh my goodness!  We absolutely love the blue and cheddar combo! 
In keeping with our changing things theme, we want to share Pam Mobley's version of Bee Proud.  She increased the inner border size and added lots of pretty flowers to her piece.  We love the addition of the cute bee button!
We will be back next week with information about this summer's Row by Row program.  There are several changes to the program.  We also have our piece ready for quilting and can't wait to share it with you.
