I smell a quilt show in the air! We're packing up stuff getting ready for Cassville's show on April 4th and 5th. I wonder how many fat quarters we can get in a 8'x26' booth? I guess we're about to find out!
Yesterday's "Show and Tell" was great. Diane H. brought in a "Five and Dime" quilt she made using the F&D ruler. We love the colors in this quilt, they're so bright and cheery! Great job, Diane! Love that Five and Dime!

Our friend from the north, Rosemary G. stopped by yesterday (after leaving her husband to fish at Roaring River!) We always love the projects Rosemary brings to share. She really dazzled us yesterday!
Rosemary made this "Quilt of Valor" for her brother, Roy. We love the Chevron pattern and....the backing on this quilt is fabulous!

Rosemary made this "Tumbler" quilt to keep in their camper. The lady that quilted it said it was too pretty to keep in a camper! We totally agree!

Rosemary strikes again! She made this "Bulls Eye" quilt for her daughter (all the fabrics have stripes). Get it?....Bulls Eye quilt....Rosemary strikes again....
We love the colors and the bulls eye affect.

Rosemary made this quilt for her grand daughter using scraps. We love scrappy quilts!
Rosemary used pages from a phone book to paper piece this top. Each block is 8 1/2" x 6" with a black strip on one end.
WE LOVE THE COLORS IN THIS TOP. So cute. Rosemary, we know your grand daughter will love her quilt! Thanks for sharing your creations with us!

I truly can't remember how many times the big brown truck was here this week (I love that big brown truck). The best thing about the big brown truck is....the big brown truck driver always has something delightful he's about to hand over!
We received the "Summer 2014" issue of "Easy Quilts" by Fons and Porter. We particularly love the "7 Fat Quarter Friendly Quilts" patterns.

All the fabrics coordinate with each other and....they're already cut! All you have to do is decide which pattern to use.
This week we received "Charm Quilts". This book has 11 patterns for making quilts using charm packs. YUMMY!
One of the first quilting books I ever purchased was "Turning Twenty" by Tricia Gibbs. It was a great book for beginners.....take 20 fat quarters and make a quilt. I thought I could do that (after someone explained to me what a fat quarter was!).
That was years ago. Now, there are ten different "Turning Twenty" books. We currently have all of them in stock....the big brown truck brought them. I love that big brown truck.
We also received the templates for the "Pick a B" blocks (book 7) as well as small cans of 505 Spray. YIPPEE!!!
