New quilt by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts


Remember just a few months ago when we were shivering and wishing for warmer weather? certainly arrived and seems to be staying for quite some time.  During these summer days, we enjoy sitting on the porch early in the morning and retreating inside once temps rise.  One of our favorite ways to pass the time relaxing is browsing Quiltmania magazines.  We received our shipment of magazines and are excited to share them.  

Quiltmania #149 contains 7 projects.  It also includes an article about the 16th Quilt Nihon exhibition.  Quilts accepted into this exhibition are carefully scrutinized.  If you visited the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum, the New England Quilt Museum or the Wisconsin Museum of Quilts and Fiber Arts last year, you may have seen entries in the 15th Quilt Nihon exhibition.  $14.99

If you're on auto ship for any of the Quiltmania magazines, Debby will be processing your order soon. 
Simply Vintage #43 - $18.99
This issue contains 19 projects featuring a variety of techniques including piecing, wool applique and needle punch.  
Simply Moderne contains 10 projects.  While the projects showcase contemporary fabrics, we like to think outside the box and visualize them using some of our wovens for a more traditional look.  $18.99
This week we're featuring a sweet quilt designed by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts.  Your $89.95 kit for "Sweetheart" includes the pattern, fabrics for the top and binding.  Your kit will include fabrics from Edyta's Sweetheart line and French General fabrics.  The quilt finishes 46" x 55".

If you'd like our help selecting backing fabric, please let us know when you place your order.  We have several prints that will be great for the back.  

Darlene made our sample and said it's a great project to take along on vacation or to put in your stitching bag for those times when you have a few minutes to devote to stitching. 

If you'd like to use the Apliquick method of applique for the Sweetheart quilt, the Apliquick starter kits are back in stock.  The pack includes the rods, a glue stick with one refill and 5 sheets of applique paper. Both rods are pointed on one end; one has a forked end; one has a flat beveled end.  Rods are made of surgical steel.  $58.95

If you'd prefer to use a fusibile product and hand or machine stitch the applique in place, we have Soft Fuse in rolls and sheets.  Rolls contain 18" x 3 yards; sheets contain 10 - 8" x 9".  We haven't seen a price increase in Soft Fuse yet so prices remain $19.95 for a roll and $10 for sheets.

This week for our "when it's gone, it's gone" section are featuring our last kit for Grandma's Girl.  Your $64.95 kit includes the pattern, fabrics for the top and binding.  The kit features Kathy Schmitz' "Home" line of fabric by Moda. Finishes 62" x 70".  

Please e-mail to reserve.  

This week for our Sample Sale, we are featuring "Flag Runner".  The runner is made of wool with a ticking fabric backing fabric.  A star button completes the piece.  It measures 8 1/2" x 25".  $45 plus shipping.

Darlene and Debby
