Calendula who?

My favorite season is Fall.  I love the colors, the leaves, pumpkins, Halloween and Thanksgiving.  It’s also my favorite time to quilt and embroidery.  When I can put the two together, that is even better.  I was hooked when I saw Crabapple Hill’s “Calendula” and “Which Witch’s Boot”.     Both quilts use pieced blocks, coloring with colors and embroidery.

 PS…We are leaving for market tomorrow, so watch us on facebook,  we will have lots of new goodies coming soon.   




My Favorite Things

This fun new Block of the Month is from the book Some Kind of Wonderful.  The new series will begin in January.  I thought it would be fun to show you bits and pieces as Debbie begins her stitching journey on this twelve month block of the month.  More details are sure to come as she stitches her “Favorite Things”.

What’s next, blue jeans, a daisy or maybe the sun?

This is a beautiful book full of many new projects.  The magical world of Hatched and Patched designer Anni Downs will not disappoint you.  Whether you love applique, patchwork or hand stitchery, you will find the perfect project just for you.   Besides the quilt Debbie is making for the block of the month, the book includes a simple daisy quilt, a pieced quilt, a sewing case, a stitched purse, a tablerunner, a needle book and pincushion,  a travel document holder, a shoe bag, a punchneedle door hanger and an eye mask.

The Elves have been busy

A big Thank You to all who participated in the “Golden Ticket Bus Tour” .

The bus leaving at 7:00 am Friday morning!

Mauri and Debbie, bus hostesses at 6:00 am the morning of the bus trip.  They look so ready…would love to have seen them later that night.

The Elves have been busy!

 …and with fall in the air, we have been busy making lots of new models, we hope you will find something that catches your eye.  Kits are available for most of these quilts. I love this quilt, “September Song” was pieced and quilted by Mauri Richey, using the Fat Quarter Fashionista pattern.  These fabrics, from the Joel Dewberry – Heirloom collection are reminiscent of a late fall afternoon.   

McKenna Ryan’s Home Tweet Home is featured at the top of this picture.  Patterns and kits are available.  From right to left, “Summer House” is a Kalidescope using Moda’s Summer House fabrics.  Treasures & Tidbits from Robert Kaufman, features Piece O’ Cake fabric and the pattern Off the Rail.  LouLouThi fabric from Anna Marie Horner is using the pattern Off Track. 

Wonky Fall Foliage

These cute quilts were designed by Sandra Workman and use wonky log cabins, hexagons and wedges along with embroidery & applique. 

 Wonky Wildflowers 

Giraffes in the Forest, Squares All Around, Party Girl and Sunkissed are great quilts for the baby or small child.
