Always looking for some way to store your Jellyroll’s???

Fabric Strip Case measures  3" highs 23.25" long and 3.25" wide.

                                     Fabric Strip Case measures 3″ highs 23.25″ long and 3.25″ wide.

There is the most amazing NEW storage case out there for jellyrolls! Its ingenious!  A jellyroll fits perfectly inside of the container, there is no bunching and scrunching involved!  It also has 2 adjustable “stoppers”  that will hold your fabric in place for when you transport the container from place to place.  The Fabric Strip Case will hold at least 3 full Jellyrolls, we have one complete Cold Spell Jellyroll shown in the container now.

Adjustable Stopper

                                                                         Adjustable Stopper

It is absolutely beautiful outside right now! Got the doors open in the Studio…..brainstorming some new ideas!

Have a wonderful day,

Snowflake Tutorial Videos

Lisa has a great NEW tutorial out, courtesy of the Fat Quarter Shop.  This is a 4 Part Series in how to create the Snowflake wallhanging! Part 1: How to Free Motion Quilt, Part 2: Straight Line Quilting, Part 3: How to apply the Buttons and Part 4: How to do a Single Fold Binding.

The Snowflake kit and pattern are exclusively sold thru Primitive Gatherings and The Fat Quarter Shop.  To order your kit or pattern please click here: Snowflake. We have also put under RELATED ITEMS, which is located behind the discription of Snowflake, all of the items that Lisa has mentioned in these tutorials! So you don’t need to hunt those down or try and remember each item she is speaking about.

Ever wanted to do a little Free Motion Quilting but to afraid to get started?  I know I have…..taking that first stitch is always so scary but once you get it going it all comes together!  Watch the 2 videos below on getting started with Free Motion Quilting and Straight Line Quilting


Ok, now that you have your quilting done.  It is time to put on those buttons, which are included in the kits. 

Anyone ever done a Single Fold Binding before??  I was a tad bit intimidated by this method to be honest, especially after watching Lisa do all her bindings on quilts on the way to Market, from the new Little Gatherings Book coming out in August.  But after watching this video, I am pretty sure that you and I can do it!

Have an absolutely wonderful day, it is beautiful outside! I can’t wait to get out in my garden tonight!

Wisconsin State Shop Hop

Looking for something to do this month?  Or wanting to go on a Road Trip?  I have to perfect opportunity for you!!  The Annual Wisconsin State Shop Hop Started this past friday and will go thru June 27th, 2015.  The Shop Hop encompasses 66 different Quilt Shops throughout the State of Wisconsin.  This year the fabric is absolutely amazing and is a collaboration between Windham Studions, Jeanne Horton (Country Sampler) and Julie Hendrickson (JJ Stitches).  Each Shop was required to create a project using this fabric,  we decided that we would make a quilt!  It is perfect for you to take with you to your sporting events, picnics or give to that special someone who is going to a UW school!  Our Quilt is 76″x83″ and the kits were cut so that you did not have to piece the long strips in the quilt, which is perfect for me because I want to make at least 2 of these for graduating seniors I know!  Wisconsin State Shop Hop Quilt Ordering

There are some FABULOUS prizes that are going to be given away as well.  Each Shop has a $200 Gift Basket that you can enter to win, you don’t even have to complete the Shop Hop to be eligible!!  The GRAND PRIZE, which would mean that you need to go to 51 Shops and complete one full “section” of the Shop Hop is a Trip for Two to the International Quilt Festival in Houston Texas, this year in October!!!  It is a 5 day, 4 night stay which includes Airfare, and Lodging at the Hilton (which is right across the street from the Convention Center) and tickets to the Festival.  Just saying if you win and you need some one to go along with you, I would be happy to fill that #2 spot for you!!  :)

There will also be several Top Of the Hop Prizes that will be up for grabs to those of you that visit 36-50 of the Shops participating.  For more information and for where the closest Shop that is participating to you so that you can get started please visit the Wisconsin State Shop Hop website at:  www.wisconsinquiltshophop.com
