19 new patterns; Show and Tell; Secret Sisters

We received a boat load of new patterns and two new books this week.  

The patterns use various pre-cuts for making quilts, tote bags, placemats, table runners and wall hangings.   

Wow!  That's a lot of patterns!

Everyone knows I love Show and Tell.  I do.  I really do.  

We were thrilled to see several projects our customers brought in this past week.  

Kayla has been very busy making pillowcases, a quilt for herself and a quilt for her Aunt.  

We particularly love her "Mimosa" pillowcases and the "Harvest Moon" quilt she made.  

Great job, Brat!

Shirley brought in a quilt she made using "Summer Breeze" prints a couple of weeks ago. Shame on me for not posting her pictures then.  Sorry, Shirley!  

Shirley also brought in a wall hanging a friend hand embroidered for her and a family heirloom tablecloth that's more than 100 years old.  

Thanks, Shirley for sharing with us!  Sorry it took so long to get your pictures posted.

Yesterday, Judi brought in this miniature English Paper Pieced project she recently finished......each piece is 1/2" hexagons arranged in a floral motif.  

Thanks, Judi for sharing your table topper with us! It's so cute!

We couldn't let Cathy leave without getting a picture of her tote.  The top section had Mary Engelbreit fabric with beads hanging down.  

How cute is this?  We love it!  Thanks, Cathy for letting us get a pic of your tote!

This quilt is huge!  We know the newlyweds will love it!  

Thanks, Janet (and David) for sharing it with us before the wedding.

Farm Girl Vintage; Great Granny Squared; Quilty Fun; Mimi; Row by Row'ers; Secret Sisters and Show and Tell!

We received some really cool stuff this week: new books, a new pattern and bolts of "Mimi" by Chez Moi for Moda.  

"Farm Girl Vintage" is a fabulous book by Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet. This book is full of vintage blocks with a twist.  Each pattern has the directions for 6" or 12"  blocks.  

The forward of this book is a walk down memory lane for the author (including old family photos and her family's history).  

"Farm Girl Vintage" is a must have for your quilting library.

Lori Holt also penned "Great Granny Squared".  This book is not what you'd expect by just reading the title.    

That's all I'm going to say about it!  It's a wonderful book full of nifty patterns.  Great Granny Squared. Nifty title, nifty book.

 We also received "Quilty Fun" by Lori Holt.

 She also designs patterns....."Canning Season" by Lori Holt is a super cute pattern that also came in this week.  

It mimics Mason Jars sitting on a shelf.  This would be perfect displayed in a kitchen or for someone who cans a lot.  

We now have 20 bolts of "Mimi" by Chez Moi for Moda.  Some of the prints in this collection are very large (but very colorful).  

The smaller prints of this line off set the larger prints and make great companion pieces.

The Moda Marbles keep coming in!  We received "Dusty Blue" this week.  Yippee!  

"Flower Fantasy" by Quilting Treasures is here.  The print on the far right is faint pink but super cute with the other two prints.  

These ladies were "Row By Row"-ing and stopped by the shop on Wednesday.  

They each made their own "Row by Row" tote for the event!  

Thanks, ladies for stopping by and sharing your totes with us.  We love them!

Due to a hectic travel schedule, Cathy's "Secret Sister" has mailed several of her gifts but, for the month of July, her 'sister' left Cathy's gift at the shop.  

Cathy received a charm pack and mini charm of "Lady Slipper Lodge" inside a clear Omni Grid container for July (Cathy loves "Lady Slipper Lodge" and squealed like a little girl when she opened this).  

Good job, Secret Sister. Cathy loved these.

While she was here, Cathy brought the gifts she'd received in the mail from her 'sister':  A quilter's caddy (above) and strip kit of her favorite color (below): purple.

Debbie bought a "Lady Slipper Lodge" charm pack and mini-charm pack last Saturday.  

She came back today with the "Bow Tucks Tote" she'd made using part of them.  

We love how she put the mini-charm pieces on point of each charm pack piece!  

Debbie was kind enough to leave her tote in the shop as a display!  

I told her she might put her name on it because it might grow legs and walk my house!  

How cute is this?
