How many of you LOVE Valentines day or Don’t? I know some of you out there, like me, probably would prefer to receive gifts from your significant other on any other day than when they are suppose to be giving you a gift. But lets be real here, I secretly would still LOVE to get a gift on Valentines Day! Am I right? Last year Phil out did himself and 2 days before Valentines Day he proposed to me, we were leaving on a trip and he didn’t want to be responsible for hanging onto it until Valentines Day. I am pretty sure he will be unable to top this year, but I am completely willing to let him try! 🙂
Also Ladies and Gentlemen we need to stick together and take care of our own, maybe you have a sewing friend that has lost their loved one this past year and a little Valentine’s Pick Me up is just what they need. Or a sewing friend that may be a little down on their luck lately….a small gift to know that you are thinking about them could be what the doctor ordered. We have gift bundles available. A mug that they can use now during the winter, and some Valentine’s Goodies inside. Or a little caddy that they can store stuff in with a few little sewing goodies, pick you flavor and have an instant gift!
I think what I am trying to say is that we all love to get a little something on Valentine’s Day and you can brighten up the lives of your friends or family by just doing a little something for them, especially if they don’t expect it!
It is the first time I am blogging in 2019 and thought I would start it off right with some great new programs we have available for you all! We have several NEW Blocks of the Month and a few great ones returning.
For some you doing a Summer Block of the Week with us is a little difficult to keep up, lucky for you we are doing our Twilight Garden as a Block of the Month starting in March! This quilt is a labor of love! Anyone who is doing or will be doing this quilt will have a heirloom to pass down for sure! Twilight Garden is wool appliqué done on a navy flannel background, if you would like to do it on a different color just call us up and we will see what we can do for you, you will need to purchase the 8 yards of background fabric from us though in order to do our Block of the Month. A wool only kit will NOT be offered. This will be a 15 month commitment and and is $33.00 per month (domestic including shipping), along with your Month 1 Essentials ($114) which is your background fabric. You will be receiving all the fabric and wools you need to create the 90″x90″ top of the quilt along with the binding. We will be starting to send out your blocks in March, sign up today so you do not miss out!
Our Cotton Summer Block of the Week last year was called Star Studded Event, and boy was it Star Studded! We stuck with using only certain colors to create this amazing color palate! Every year we out do ourselves with the amount of colors and fabrics that we have in our kits! This year I believe it toped 1600, now where else can you get that many different fabrics in a kit? Star Studded Block of the Month will be 90″x96″ when you finish this 12 month commitment, or you can make 2 quilts out of the blocks that you will have! Star Studded will begin to ship in March and is only $21.00 (domestic including shipping)
100 Modern Quilt Blocks, Block of the Month is using Tula Pinks book City Sampler, to create this amazing quilt! Gerri used a combination of Grunge, Bella and Reproduction to give it this unique look! I love it when our ladies think outside the box and turn a project into their own! In this Block of the Month for $20/ month (domestic includes shipping) you will be making 10-6″ finished blocks every month for 10 months starting in March. You will have the option of finishing your blocks like we did or choosing your own setting, there are several options in the book, this Block of the Month provides you with just the fabrics to create the blocks. A finishing kit will be separate if you so choose to finish it our way.
We also have a NEW wool appliqué on cotton quilt called Garden Stars, 75″x93″. This quilt allows you to choose your background fabric, whether you want it to be a muslin or a subtle flower print is completely up to YOU, make it your own! Each month for 12 months starting this month you will receive the wools to create one of the Star Flower blocks. In the 6th month you will also be receiving the triangle papers and the fabrics to create all of the beautiful half square triangles you see in the quilt….we encourage you to throw some of your own fabrics in there to truly make it your own quilt. In the first month you will receive the Essentials ($164.00), which will include the 6 yards of the Background you choose along with all the red wool (1 ½ yards) you will need for the stars and the Black Texture for the flower pots, you will also receive the 1stpackage of wools for your first block, each month the blocks will only be $17.00 (domestic including shipping).

IMPORTANT!! Please make sure you take the time READ the descriptions of all the the blocks of the month for important information about it, not all information can be found in this email….otherwise it would make it super long!
