My customers & employees are the best!

Even though I've been swamped at school, trying to keep everything going as best I can, some things have to just slide for a little bit - like this blog. Sorry about that. 
But I'm caught up for now & our quilty friends have been busy creating & playing - just look!

I love when our friends bring their work & say, "Look what I made!" It makes me so proud to know they found exactly what they needed at my shop. Everyone of these projects used my shop fabric,  patterns, & books. They're all so talented!

 Cathy's Carpenter Star from Sheri's class

 Rae Lynne's butterfly

Check out the details!
 Trish's Christmas Heart Lights Tree from Margaret's class.

 Jenny & Cathy enjoyed the Bring Your Own Bag class - everyone chooses a different purse pattern.

 This is Jenny's fall runner.
 Jaime has been busy - check out his Jinny Beyer vest!
 Dion is going to teach this no-sew crocheted rag rug in October.

 Margaret made these adorable YoYo Trees. She'll be teaching the class in October, too.

Laura made this adorable quilt for a little someone special - it's all shirts & pockets from her little clothes! How clever is that?! It's pretty much a T Shirt quilt made from a little person's clothes. Great idea!

Autumn Wishes

So here we are, it's still over 90 degrees outside, & we're wishing fall would hurry up.

 We have a ton of gorgeous fall fabric in now. If the temperatures would just give us a bit of a break, all would be grand.

My sample elves have been working overtime!

Look at what my amazing Sample Elves have been working on. They are simply fabulous! I'm so lucky to have such talented quilty friends.

 This is Spirit of Christmas from Marcus Brothers. Rae Lynne made this gorgeous Christmas quilt with a soft reproduction feel. We have kits available & all the coordinating fabric from which to choose for backing. I love the stripey wallpaper print border, don't you?

Look at Color My World from RJR Fabrics. Nancy did a beautiful job on this sample, & the kits are ready to go. It's a big one - 90" X 90."
Check out those amazing brights! Come see it in person.

Here's Tulip Festival from Benartex, with a gorgeous paper pieced pattern from Animas Quilts. It's a Block of the Month you'll love. Sheri has made the sample & may even have classes if you're interested. We'll be kicking this one off in October. Watch the website for information on registration for the BOM.
