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.

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!
Perfect Pinwheels is a new quilt in the shop, that is very beginner friendly. We get perfect pinwheels by using Thangles to make our half square triangle. They are one of our very favorite tools! We are doing a demo on how to do Thangles at the shop today, Wednesday, at 2:00 pm. If you are too far to come and see us, I will be posting an online version of the demo very soon. I love the simplicity of this quilt!
I am a little obsessed with polka dots! Who isn’t? This fabric just came in the shop and I kind of want to eat it! Sweet Dots is a new Riley Blake fabric and it is a must for your stash. It will go with everything!!
This is my very favorite fabric right now! I want to hop on the little red bike and enjoy the day. This is one of the fabrics from Spring Street a lovely collection that is in the shop. I went to bed last night and was not sure what to do with it and woke up this morning with the quilt all set in my head, I can’t wait to start working on it this weekend.
Yesterday I started a new knitting project and did some babysitting, hence the crocodile about to consume my stitches. The pattern is called Insou and is a free Berroco pattern that you can download for yourself here, or stop by the shop and pick one up. We received some of the yarn it is made from called Weekend and I had to start my very own in pink. I love knitting cables, so it has been really a treat. I probably will need a little help with the flowers because crochet is not really my forte, but they are a necessary addition. What do you think ?
We are retiring this beautiful Eggs On Parade display. It was a new project for us last year, but now that it is on sale it will be a perfect project for you this year! Use as a wall hanging or a table runner and you will have the most fab decor! There are only a few kits left that are all the hand dyed wools and pattern as shown here. We have marked them 20% off, so stop in the shop or order one on our website. It feels like spring is almost here!
This quilt will excite all of you applique lovers! A stunning design with a Parisian theme from Vintage Spool. You may remember her Vintage Valentine quilt that we did as a block of the month a few years back. We are all in love with Mon Ami !!

Words cannot describe how much I love this fabric. I know I will use it in quilt after quilt! This beautiful blossom reminds me of many of the Japanese florals we stock, yet it is from Alexander Henry. It is called Farmdale Blossom and I just love it!
