Pillow Talk BOM

A great little program coming from our very own Lori of Lily Anna Stitches. Pillow Talk is a program that allows you to switch out the sleeve of your pillow every month or display several at one time. This is a 12 month program, the first month is $35 as you will get the pillow fabric the month of October. Each month after that you will receive the wool and the fabric for the sleeve to create these wonderful pillows. Here is a few of the pillows that you will be make over the months. You will always receive the month ahead so that you can have it ready to display for the coming month. Pillow Talk

Civil War Sampler Finishing Kit-Second Option


Hey Ladies,
The second option is now planned for the Civil War Sampler Block of the Month Finishing Kit. It is in the style as shown on page 4. Instead of 56 blocks, ours will be 49 blocks (7 across by 7 down). You will have one block left which I will be adding to the back of my quilt as a label. Our sashing and cornerstones will finish at 1 1/2 inches. The first border will finish at 3 inches and the 2nd blue border will finish at 4 1/2 inches. The binding will be done in the blue fabric.

The kit cost will be $102.50.

You can call the shop at 920-722-7233, or email us at www. and order this option if you want it.

Keep Sewing!!!

Civil War Sampler Finishing Kit


Hi Ladies,
This will be the color palette I use for my Civil War Sampler finishing kit. I will be using the muslin for the 2 inch sashing, the blue grey fabric for a 2 inch border, the beige fabric for a 3 inch border and the dark brown for the binding and the corner squares. The pattern I will be following will be on page 4 of the “Civil War Sampler” book. I will figure out the cost this weekend and let you know on Monday what that is. At that time you came call the shop or email us with your order. Make sure you let us know if you are ordering Deb S. or Deb D. finishing kits. I hope you enjoyed this block of the week. I have 3 more blocks to finish and then I can start putting together!!!
Keep Sewing!!
