Even though Kay has had quilts in the Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine many times, it's always exciting to get our copy and see another of her creations in the magazine. We love the simplicity of her new quilt, Secret Window. To make things even easier, she used the raw edge applique method for the quilt.
Kits for Secret Window are available on our site https://www.sewgracefulquilting.com/. Your $38.95 kit includes fabrics to make the quilt top and binding. The pattern is not included and may be found in the summer issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine (we have mags on the way). Magazine is $9.99. Quilt finishes 33" x 33".
If you're planning a road trip this summer and are looking for a great take along project, our version of PS Don't Forget may be just what you need. Your $24.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics for top, borders, binding and backing fabric. If you'd like the Valdani perle cotton size 12 we used we will be happy to include it with your shipment.
Finishes 16" x 20"
We are taking pre-orders for Lisa Bongean's new book, Wool, Needle and Thread 2. Our order should ship soon.
For quilters yearning to work with wool and wanting to learn from the master, Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings is here to help. In her first book, Wool, Needle & Thread, Lisa shares all her tried-and-true techniques--from start to fabulous finish--with dozens of step-by-step photos and a handful of projects. Now, in Wool, Needle & Thread 2, you can put all those stitchery skills into action with 15 patterns brimming with possibilities from table mats and pincushions to pillows and wall hangings.
64 pages - $24.99
If you haven't ordered Lisa's first book, we have them in stock. If you want both books, we will be glad to hold shipment and mail both at once to save shipping costs.
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we are featuring one of Kay's designs. We have only one Nestled in the Woods kit left. The pattern is not included in the kit. The pattern is in the Fall 2020 issue of Primitive Quilts and Projects magazine.
The kit includes Diamond Textiles homespun fabrics to make the quilt top and binding. Quilt finishes 78 1/2" x 87 1/2". Backing fabric isn't included in the kit but we will be happy to help you select a backing fabric.
Kay is looking forward to our first vending event in over a year. She is bringing several new projects to share with quilters in eastern Tennessee at the Pigeon Forge show. Shortly after that show, we will load the SUV and head to Kansas City for the regional show in Overland Park KS.
We are super excited to launch our newest block of the month, Manor House. We'd planned to begin it last year but covid happened which meant we couldn't get together and dye wool. Once we could dye wool, wool became scarce.....you probably can all relate to how it is when things snowball. Anyway, everything is good now and we're ready to start June 1.
The program will run for 5 months. During the first four months you'll receive background fabric and wool to make a row. You'll receive border and binding fabrics the 5th month. Cost per month is $32.95 (plus shipping if you're not local). The pattern book must be purchased separately for $24.
Quilt finishes 60" x 75".
We took sign ups for this program last year but are asking that you confirm your interest in the program by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you're on the old list but we don't hear from you we will assume you are no longer interested in participating.
Debby has been busy making new samples. We're sharing one of our favorites this week. The piece is named "Table Topper"....a simple name suggesting exactly what it is. Your $28.95 kit includes the pattern, applique paper, fabrics for the top and backing fabric.
It finishes 19 1/2" from edge to edge.
Our next new item is a pretty selection of spring inspired fat eighths. The bundle includes 12 fat 1/8" fabrics (we have yardage available of all of these if you would prefer a larger bundle or yardage). $18
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we are featuring some fun socks. With the warmer weather it's time to put away the heavy winter socks and let your feet enjoy a lighter weight sock. These are a cotton blend and one size fits most. $15 each.
When ordering, please specify which style(s) you want. We have only one pair of each style left so don't delay in emailing email@example.com to reserve.
We've been gearing up for our first vending event in over a year. Kay will be hitting the road and heading east to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee for the Mountain Quiltfest which will be held May 5-8. For details visit https://www.mypigeonforge.com/event/quiltfest. We realize traveling to and fro isn't possible in a day but wouldn't it be fun to get a group together and have a road trip? If you plan to visit the show and want us to pack any specific item(s), please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by April 28.
If you're planning a road trip, it's likely you will need something to stitch on to pass the time. "Sew" is a sweet little project that won't require a lot of concentration. Your $14.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the top, wool for applique, backing fabric and binding. It finishes 5" x 7" - hanger is not included in the kit.
The designer has sold her business and we are no longer able to get patterns for this piece so once they're gone, they're gone.
We finished the next project as a pillow but it would be equally cute finished as a wall hanging. Your $24.95 "Joy" kit includes the background fabric (we chose a beautiful Diamond Textile as the background), wool for applique, binding, and backing fabric. We've also included instructions for making the binding which looks like cording but is actually very simple to make. Finishes 14" x 19".
Kathy Cardiff's newest book "A Time for Gathering" features a stunning autumn quilt. It is a feast for the senses: the rich color palette, the warm textures, and the lovely motifs. The book contains full-size patterns which make appliqué prep easy and simple embroidery gives even more depth to the design. 40 pages - $21.99
This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section, we are featuring a kit from another designer who has retired from the business. The pattern is stamped on Sandcastle fabric. Your $18 kit includes the pre-stamped fabric, pattern, needle and thread. We did not use the thread in the kit (it was one color and we wanted more variation). If you'd like us to put a thread kit containing the Valdani perle cotton we used, let us know when you place your order. The thread kit is an additional cost.
