Schools out for the Summer….but we have some awesome new books for you!

There are a few new books out there that I bet you are dying to find out what is underneath the cover.  We have 5 new books that I am going to get you a peak inside of, some are quilt books exclusively, while others are stitcheries and wool projects.  Pick one, two, three, four or all 5, they all have so much to offer you!

Sunday Best Quilts by Sherri McConnell and Corey Yoder are 2 Moda designers that have a few quilts in fun and funky colors, while there are a few simple and sweet quilts as well. 12 projects from 2 great designers using 6 -different quilt themes–star, scrappy, red and white, Christmas, pineapple, and Courthouse Steps, see how they put there own stamp on each.


Follow Your Heart by Terry Atkinson keeps you on your toes with Quilt, Purses, and Small Bag patterns.  Pick your poison, this book has a little bit of everything for you.

Are you into Stitching?  Changing Seasons by Gail Pan has a variety of stitcheries combined with a little piecing to give each project a little something to make your stitchery pop.  17 different projects with a new twist on the traditional.


Countdown to Christmas by Susan Ache is devoted to the red, green, cream, white projects of the Holiday Season coming upon us……FAST it seems.  I absolutely love the green in this book.  I think it would lend well to the light green that we have in our Floral Gatherings Fabric…a little bit of that yellow green that is sometimes so hard to find.


Christmas at Buttermilk Basin is by Stacy West has 19 different patterns in it that spans the wool, stitchery, quilting and more in it.  Stacy as always delivers a beautiful array of projects to be used throughout the season.


Did you find one you liked?? Let me know which one and why, we would love to hear from you!

I was just looking to make one of these pillow cases the other day and was in need of a pattern for one!  So happy we have this pattern! This pillow kit comes in either a red or a grey version.

Our Wisconsin Swag Bag and Lip Balm Case Kit and Pattern uses 4 Fat Quarters and comes with the D-Ring for the lip balm case.  I don’t know about you, but I am forever looking my lip balm at the bottom of my purse so the be able to clasp this on my purse would be perfect.  Not only can this dual as a makeup case but would also be the perfect bag to put some Valdani in for traveling!

And how cute are these bags called 2 Fat Quarter Buckets?  Use them as scrap holders or as a little trash bin by your sewing machine? What about a little gift basket for your sewing friends or for birthday gifts! They are a perfect size at just 5 1/2 ” W x 4″ L x 7″ H.  They come in the two color options, red or grey, or you could purchase just the pattern and make them in your own fun colors.
