We whipped up this adorable baby quilt using Jenn Ski’s Animal Alphabet fabrics. When I say whipped up, I mean it. This quilt is truly as quick as it gets. I have many annoying friends that have decided to wait until the baby is born to find out the gender. This seems to be a little bit of a trend lately. I guess I can see the excitement of it, but it can be a little harder when making them a gift. Especially if the Dad is going to have a melt down over even the tiniest pink polka dot. Anyway, to each their own. I think this quilt is a wonderful option for either a girl or a boy! The fabrics are just fabulous!

JUNE 16-19th! Don’t miss it!
I am so glad these are here! I have been waiting impatiently for these fabrics. The designer is Helen Dardik and I have been a fan of her blog for a while. These prints are super retro and remind me of the Japanese fabrics, which means they are fantastic!!
We welcomed a new member of the Piper’s community on Tuesday! This is Matilda, or Tildy, which has already become her nickname. Jessica who works with us at the shop and her husband Steve are the proud parents. We have not been able to meet her yet, but we can’t wait!!!
Shannon made this beautiful and simple quilt using the Andrea Victoria fabrics. I just love it! We have the pattern and a kit available for purchase in the shop as well as on line, just click the links.
I purchased this magazine over the weekend mainly because I liked the cover. I am so glad that I did, I love it! It is well worth the $14.99 purchase price! There are a ton of darling projects for children, including a ruffle tunic that is to die for from Olive & S, an alphabet quilt, a whimsical growth chart and much more. There is an apron that I am sure to make for myself as well. Anyway, go out and get it! You will love it! The magazine is called Stitch, and is a special issue put out by Quilting Arts for Spring 2010.
Halloween! Already?! Yes!! We just received our first Halloween fabric shipment of the year and it did not disappoint. The Ghastlies is a collection from Alexander Henry, that is fabulously creepy. It reminds me a little bit of Edward Gorey.I love the witchy mama with rosy cheeks!
This is the latest and greatest shot of Piper. She is modeling our Ruffled Romper. Adorable!
This is a fabulous new quilt we have hanging in the shop. The maker and designer, Angela, made this as a first attempt at an Applique quilt. So if you are scared to do applique, don’t be! With a little determination you too could make something as wonderful as this! The designs are from a well known artist, Charley Harper. We have patterns for the quilt plus you must purchase the Charley Harper coloring book to get the applique images. Click here to buy a set of both to make this quilt.
There are four new wonderful patterns from Heather Bailey! We have them all at the shop! I am speechless over how adorable theyn are. The two shown above are the Flutterby Pincushions and the Claira & Clancy pig dolls. There are also two wonderful tote patterns, the New Leaf and the Saturday Market Bag. Better get sewing!
