Vintage Dishes (above)has been our top selling pattern the last few weeks. It is one of a whole collection of patterns by Bee In My Bonnet designed to go with the fabric collection Sew Cherry. Lori just brought us 3 new additions to this group as well, one of which is the Cherry Blossom Table Runner shown below.
We decided to to do a giveaway! Post a comment on this blog post, and we will randomly draw a winner, who can pick whichever one of Lori’s new patterns she would like as a prize! Here is a list of all of them so you know what to choose from: Fenced Flowers, Cherry Cheesecake, Remember Grandma’s Apron, Sew Hexie Cushion, Cakewalk, One Yard Apron, Cherry Blossom Table Runner, Sew Cherry Table Topper, oh and Vintage Dishes. What is your favorite? I think I am most in love with the Cherry Cheesecake, but I am having a really hard time deciding!
P.S. Our Wednesday Free Demo tomorrow is a great one. We will be showing you how to make simple crib sheets. As I am finding out, while trying to finish up my baby shopping, these little sheets are really expensive, and it is hard to find the design that you want! You can easily make your own, out of the exact fabric that you want! Cone on , come all, it is free at 2:00 pm at the shop.
This fabric is my new obsession this week. I just love the colors and flowers and really everything about it! It is called Spring Street Floral. Hopefully all of you are getting a long weekend and can enjoy some relaxing creative time! We will be open from 12-5 on Memorial Day, so come and pay us a visit!
On my way to work this morning there was the most adorable little family who popped out in front of my car. They continued to walk down the middle of the street for more than a block. It appeared to be a mom, dad and 4 little new chicks. They made my whole day!

There is so much that is new at our shop, I will be posting and posting over the next few weeks. Don’t Look Now, is an Australian company that designed this quilt above and was one of our very favorite Quilt Market finds. We brought an order of patterns back to the shop and sold out of many of them in one day. Thank goodness I tracked these ladies down at their hotel and am going to pick up a re-order before they head back down under! The above quilt is called Animal Alphabet and am head over heels for it! Isn’t it fabulous!?
The Salt Lake City Quilt market 2011 ended today. I have swollen, tired feet, but it was well worth it! We found so many wonderful new ideas, fabric, patterns and met so many amazing new people. There is way too much to tell you about in one post! We decided to have a show and tell of much of what we found this week at the shop. The sneak peak will take place as this weeks weekly Wednesday Demo, wednesday at 2:00pm at the shop. We hand carried as much product as we could so we have some goodies that you can have first dibs on! Don’t miss it, I know you are all going to be as excited as we are! The quilt above is from an Australian designer, we loved her so much we purchased the full line of her patterns!
Hot off the press! We have the entire line of Bee In My Bonnet’s new patterns. All of these patterns use the new Sew Cherry Collection of fabrics. They are stunning! I want to make every one of them immediately! It was hard to choose, but my 2 favorites are shown here. The quilt above is called cherry cheesecake. I adore the pieced circles with cherries in the center, it complements Lori’s new fabrics so wonderfully. My other fave is the quilt below called I remember Grandma’s Apron. Lori you have outdone yourself on these patterns and the fabric collection. Bravo!
Certain quilts become legend in our shop. They stick around for years and long after they are retired we are asked about them all of the time. One of those quilts was Friends For Christmas.
This is Friends for Christmas! Jeanette has just finished up a spectacular new quilt from the same designer called “Best Friends” There is a sneak peak above. So, now to the exciting news! The designer of both of these quilts, Lynette Anderson will be coming to Piper’s next week all the way from Australia! Come one, come all, it will be a free event, Wednesday May 11th at 4:00 pm.
