I am loving this quilt! I am so glad Jeanette made one for little Ronan too! This pattern is from Australian designer Anni Downs, of Hatched & Patched. It is from the book A Boy’s Story, which is on its way to Piper’s from down under. You can pre-order one now to make sure you get one! This week we are finalizing a new class schedule that will come out right after the new year. There are some fun new classes coming up, and this quilt will be one of them! Make sure your on our e-mail list!
This is the December Block for Aunt Millie’s Garden. You can start this block of the month with us at any time. Come to class if you need help with your applique’, we offer sessions the 1st Friday & Saturday of every month. We are hoping to have this quilt finished and hanging in the shop by the end of January! All of the blocks are just stunning! I cannot wait to see the whole quilt!
I picked up this little gem at the Spring Quilt Market! It feels really appropriate to the season right now, so I thought I would share it. I didn’t used to be such a fan of birds, but for some reason I am really into them this year. I love the un-expected colors as well, it is so Japanese! The fabric is from Yuwa and is a 50/50 blend of linen and cotton. I have a tiny bit to sell if you would like some, just follow the link:Yuwa Folky Fall Fabric
Coming very soon! This adorable Lilla tote bag, doubles as a bike basket or even little girls backpack. We used laminated fabrics to make it extra durable. What do you think? We will have kits available next week. We are buzzing around like little bees getting ready for shop hop. I hope you have saved the dates and are able to make it: June 15th through the 18th, Wednesday through Saturday. If you get here, I will be the giant balloon of a lady floating around the shop. My baby is due a few days after the hop, but I am planning on being here if he does not decide to make an early appearance. Hoping to see you all sometime soon!
UPDATE! We just received these patterns in the shop, you can purchase them online here: Lilla Bag Pattern.
We will also have kits available at Shop Hop next week if you are here in town.
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.

We can’t stop rubbing these adorable corduroy fabrics. Make something wonderful to wear for the little one in your life. We have received a few darling prints, but there is much more to come as well as a lot of solids. MMMM, so soft!
We just received the latest pattern in from the Piece O Cake ladies. When I first started quilting they inspired me more than anyone! I love the bright colors and fabulous and fresh applique designs. They continue to create some of my very favorite patterns. Their latest is called My Whimsical Garden. This pattern comes with 20 different applique quilt blocks as shown above that you can mix and match into a number of different quilt designs. Make a quilt with all 20 like the white version shown above or just use a few. I am in love as usual.
