Yay! W is for Whale is finally in the shop and the kits are all done. Phew! This guy gave us a few bumps along the way, but now that he is here, we are in love! This darling quilt is meant to be a baby quilt, but it also fits wonderfully on a toddler bed. It is applique, but it is simple applique. We think he is simply stunning! What do you think?
Maureen who used to work at our shop, made this fabulous Little Monster’s quilt from our kit for her little guy. Isn’t it fantastic!!? He is pretty cute, too! We are going to retire this quilt soon, so if you want a kit you better get one quick. There are only 5 left! Little Monsters Quilt Kit
We have a class on Thursday with a little bit of room on how to do the Machine Applique for this quilt. Call the shop for more details or to register!
Britt is a darling customer at the shop, and this is her quilt. The design is from the Animal Alphabetpattern. She made it for her first baby who was born this summer. Isn’t it wonderful?! She did a fantastic job! Britt had never done any applique before taking our Invisible Machine Applique Class. If you love applique, but are scared of it, don’t be! You too can do quilts as fabulous as this!!!
seriously!? Have you seen anything cuter than these ugly little monster faces? Jeanette is working on a new quilt that uses all of the monsters from the Little Monsters pattern, but she has entirely changed the layout and is adding a bunch of patchwork with the applique. She is using our machine applique method with all of the edges turned under. Look for a class and kit coming soon!
We just hung this new quilt in the shop called Chubby Chicks. The pattern is by Black Mountain quilts, we have made a million of Teri’s designs, we just love her! We finished up kits this weekend, but also sell just the pattern . The applique is done using our Machine Applique method. What do you think?
This week at the shop:
This weeks Wednesday Free Demo is on Fantastic Pom Poms! It is free, super fun and at 2:00 pm.
There are 2 classes starting that still have a little bit of room. Wednesday evening is our Machine Applique class (technique used above). It is a 2 week session class from 5:30-7:30 this Wednesday and next. There is also a new Beginning Quilting series beginning Thursday at 5:30 as well. This class is for 4 weeks, once a week, beginners welcome! Call the shop for more info or to sign up: 801-484-5890.
We are currently wrapping up our Spring & Summer class schedule. Let us know if you have any requests or suggestions! I can’t believe that Shop Hop is on the schedule, that means it is almost here! Mark your calendars, this year it is June 15th through the 18th!
We have a few spots left in our class tonight: Invisible Machine Applique. Call the shop for more info: 801-484-5890, it starts at 5:30 and is a 2 session class. Whether you can make it tonight or not, You’ll want to get in on this class sooner or later! It is my very favorite technique! You can make all of the fabulous applique quilts you dream about at a decent pace. Plus you can hardly tell that you didn’t spend a million hours doing the hand work(Jeanette is going to kill me for putting that part, because as you know she loves Hand Applique above all!). I love to Hand Applique but there are only so many hours in the day, and if you know both techniques the world of quilting is a better place! These are two of the blocks from the Apron Club Quilt, both were made using our Machine Applique technique. Can you tell?
