Let's think snow!


Kay and Skylar, Darlene's granddaughter, had a great time visiting at the Joplin Area Town and Country Quilters Guild.  Kay presented a wool trunk show and enjoyed sharing her enthusiasm of wool applique with the guild members.  Skylar shared a couple of her projects including her first quilt she made when she was five years old.  Kay sends a thank you to those who traveled a long distance to attend the event.

Kay is working on her 2023 calendar.  If your guild would be interested in her coming to visit, please e-mail her at

With the unbearably hot weather we thought it would be nice to share a few snow themed kits this week.  First is Winter Wonderland.  We love how the designer handed the 3-D border strip.  It adds dimension and interest to the quilt.  Your $27.95 kit includes the pattern, background cotton, wool for applique, border, binding and backing fabric.  It finishes 12" x 12".

If you'd prefer to use your own materials, the pattern is available for $9.  
The next small piece is a Skinnie that is made to fit on a Stix.......if you're a new subscriber that may sound like gibberish.  Skinnies are small pieces that finish 3 1/2" x 7".  They are designed to be displayed on a metal stand (Stix) that is available in 8", 10" or 12" heights.  

Your $15.95 "Frosty" kit includes the pattern, background cotton, wool for applique, and cotton backing.  The display Stix is an additional $4.95.  If you e-mail your order, please let us know which height of Stix you'd prefer.  
We are down to our last few Tidings of Joy kits.  Your $36.95 kit includes the pattern, background fabrics, wool for applique, and binding. Some fabrics may vary slightly from the photograph.

We also are including instructions for making the outside piping the easy way.

15" x 21"
