P-DUB’S QUILT STUFF
12203 HWY 76
EXETER, MO 65647
every Saturday through April
1st and 2nd Saturdays (May through September)
HOURS: 9 A.M. TO 5 P.M.
Sweetness finished building the first unit for the fat quarters. It is truly a vision of beauty. He’s feverishly working on getting the second unit finished by this Saturday (it’s amazing how much space it takes to house 10,000 fat quarters). Getting the first unit installed and filled made a drastic change in the amount of available space in that part of the shop. Holy cow! I can’t wait until everything is on the walls……….everything……because you know what happens then…….……sit and sew……..sit and sew…..sit and sew………..
Cross your fingers the jelly rolls, layer cakes, dessert rolls, charm packs and mini charms of Pheasant Hill (by Kansas Troubles) comes in before Saturday. This is her new line of fabric that’s being released in March (the pre-cuts usually come in a couple of months ahead of the bolted fabric). I’m really looking forward to getting the dessert rolls. They are 5" wide x W.O.F., (sorta like a jelly roll only twice as wide). We’ve never had desserts rolls in the shop before so this will be a new experience for all of us! YIPPEE! I’m so excited.
The "Mini" Binding Tools came in. They are for making bindings less than 2" wide for miniature quilts, applique or other small projects. They’re so cute! They almost look like toys!
We’ve posted several new pictures on the blog. Sally in Oklahoma made her very first Jelly Roll 1600 quilt. YEAH SALLY! Sandy in Illinois (The Over Achiever) decided to make a double Jelly Roll 1600 (yes, she used two jelly rolls….3200 inches). She sent a picture of the behemoth when she got it finished. Both pics are posted on the blog so please take a look at these beautiful quilts.
The very-pretty-in-color-flyer for the Shop Hop is also posted on the blog. Cheryl at The Quilted Garden has a real knack for making flyers and did a great job once again. Not only is it full of all the necessary information but it’s pretty to look at!
I’ll try to get pictures of the new fat quarter unit, the Pheasant Hill stuff (if it comes in) and the 108" backings on the blog before Saturday.
Help us help you:
we’re thinking about carrying batting on the roll so we’re taking a survey: What kind of batting would you like to see in the shop: 100% cotton, 80%/20% cotton/polyester or 100% polyester?? White, cream or black? Did you know we can get silk batting? We can also get wool batting. I bet quilts (or anything) made using the wool batting would be so heavy you couldn’t turn over in bed. You’d have to go to sleep in the position you wanted to be in all night because you couldn’t roll over….weighed down by the wool batting……….but you certainly wouldn’t get cold. Anyway, let us know your thoughts on the batting on the roll. Help us help you!
The "Jelly Roll of the Month" club is off to a good start. I’m excited about this new club.
The Super Bowl is this Sunday. Traditionally Sweetness and I get all nestled in, pop some popcorn and watch the game on his big TV. This year, I have to work on Super Bowl Sunday so; we’ve decided to have our Super Bowl sale on Saturday instead. This Saturday only (February 2nd) all regularly priced fabric on the bolt will be 15% off. We have a lot of new stuff coming in soon and need to make room for it.
If you need something between regular business hours, please call. Sweetness is in the ‘man zone’ a lot during the day (making more fat quarter units, among other things). If he doesn’t answer, please leave a message on the machine so he can call you back.
See you Saturday,
P-Dub and Sweetness
