This is the little black dress of winter hats. I have one that I wear constantly, and it works with everything in my winter wardrobe. It is knit in the round, with the little bow edge knit at the end. We made ours using Rowan- 4 ply wool yarn( on special right now!), we prefer black , of course. You will need 2 balls, some needles and off you go! The best part about it is we are giving you the pattern for free!
I love this quilt more and more every day. It is has such a sweet vintage feel. Bloomin Stars will be taught as a class by special guest teacher/designer Laurie Bird at the end of this month. Contact us at the shop for more details. I really want to make a smaller scale version, so it is on the docket.
Seriously have you seen anything as cute as this?! We started receiving some of a very large Kokka order that we placed over the summer. The prints are Japanese imports and are just fantastic! There are lots more coming besides these over the next month. Both of these prints are a Linen and Cotton blend. I have a great little baby project already cooked up for them, I will share as soon as I am finished!
I couldn’t pick just one from the Daisy Cottage line! This pair is my favorite from the collection! I am just in love with the gray and pink combo!! You can get your own 1 yard set to whip up whatever your mind can come up with here: My Favorite Set. I am still working on what to create!
We went to check out the Deseret Foundation Holiday Quilt Show today at the Little America Hotel. As always, it was full of beautiful quilts. It is a don’t miss quilt show that occurs once every two years, culminating in a fundraising dinner & auction to raise money for medical research at LDS Hospital. We try to donate at least one quilt every time, and this year we gave our Hansel & Gretel quilt, that was on display at the shop a few years ago. The quilt show ended today, but you can still purchase tickets to the event tommorow night, follow the link above for more info. Here are a few of my favorites! I love the fact that all of the quilts must be hand quilted, the workmanship was stunning.
The quilt above is a baby quilt from a vintage Marie Webster quilt kit. Can you believe it was $4.25, when it was originally purchased?! You couldn’t even buy the thread for that today! All of the applique was done by one of our favorite customers, Margie Thomlinson. Love!
Another Piper’s conection, this embroidered flowers quilt was made from a kit we sold at the shop a few years ago.
Another Marie Webster inspired beauty! I am such a sucker for these simple applique designs.
This is part of a really fun Night Before Christmas Quilt, made by a group of Brigham City Quilters.
And last but not least, our Hansel & Gretel quilt. There were many more amazing designs, too many to show them all. Make sure to mark your calendars for 2013, if you missed this year! P.S. They are always looking for donations, so if you have something, or would like to make something for the next event, please contact the wonderful ladies of the Deseret Foundation. They will even hand quilt it for you!
