I absolutely love the way this fabric looks in any of the quilts that I have done.  And to be perfectly honest some of my Japanese Quilts are my most favorite ones that I have in my house!  They are just so calming, soft in color, and gives my quilts such a different feel than my usual Reproduction Quilts.

Are you doing a Block of the Month with us???

If you are doing a Block of the Month with us we would like to update you on our NEW system that we are using!  We are now able to get ALL of the Blocks of the Month out with in the first 2 weeks of each Month.  We now have one person dedicated to just the shipping of the Blocks of the Month.  Judy P. used to have her hands in several different operations at the Shop that required her attention as well as doing the Blocks of the Month which is why it took her the Month to get them all out. As we continue to grow , we decided that we needed to split up some of the duties around the Shop and were in need of having one person to concentrate on just the shipping of the Blocks of the Month.  Judy P., knowledgeable in just about anything you throw at her, is now head of our Customer Service, so when you call or email the Shop she is the one that you will be talking to!

Now that we have that out of the way….lets get on to the fun stuff!!!There are a few Blocks of the Month that I would like to share with you!

Star Spangled Liberty will be starting in September and you will be able to choose whether you would like to do the Applique or the all Pieced Version of this quilt.  It is only a 9 month program so you will have it done for the 4th of July 2017!  Each month for the kit and the pattern it will be $29.00

Our Bow Tie Block of the Month is….how can I say this….Simply AMAZING!!!  When it is all done it takes your breath away!  This started this month and and will continue for 12 months.  Your first month will be $60 as you will receive all of your background fabric and your first set of blocks that you need to make.  Months 2-12 will only be $18.00, your pattern is provided for you for FREE!

I have said a lot about this Block of the Month lately, but I think that is because I absolutely love it and there are so many possibilities that you can do with it!  Tuxedo Tales is a great, fun, little project to work on each month!  We have frames that you can put them in, or you can make them into little banners, a large quilt…..and so many other things. Each month is only $11.50!!!

Do you LOVE Japanese Fabric like I do?  Holly’s Garden is the one for YOU!!! 60 different BEAUTIFUL fabrics will come in the the kit for Holly’s Garden.  This is only a 6 month commitment and is only $23 a month!

And last but not least….are you looking for a great wool project to work on?  We are doing Village Green by Blackberry Primitives.  This Block of the month is wool on Flannel and is only $20.00 per month for 10 months!

 

Hope you have a wonderful rest of your week and your weekend!  IT is going to be in the 70’s here!!! or so they say…..it is currently snowing…so we will see about that!
