NEW block of the month for Fall!!!!!

I know all of you are waiting for some of our NEW Blocks of the Month to come out this Fall, here is one of them. I have been working on getting a couple blocks done so that you are able to get a “feel” for what we are going for. This BOM is called A Rainbow Garden by Heart to Hand. We will be doing this BOM out of Lisa’s Flannel lines: Wool & Needle I and II along with our hand dyed wools. The picture on the cover of the pattern does not do the quilt justice! It is going to be a gorgeous quilt when it is finished….I can’t wait to get started on some more blocks!! Here are the specifics: the quilt measures 64x 74, blocks finish at 12 1/2×12 1/2, 14 month program, $17/month, pattern must be ordered separately for $17, and will start September 2013.

This is what the designers finished quilt looks like, we will be using different background and wools but still going for the same effect.


Hope you all enjoy this quilt and get signed up to receive these great blocks starting in September!

These are the first 3 blocks that I have finished, colors will vary due to photography, the greens really aren’t that green green color! 🙂




Thank you, Jessica

Summer Days

I just wanted to share with you a few pictures that I took while I was up north over the 4th of July. Always have so much fun to just sitting, playing cribbage with my grandparents, listening to the loons, watching the eagle soar by and last but not least these beautiful sunsets over the lake! I hope you all are having a wonderful summer, and are taking time out to have fun with family and friends and of course to sew!
