Vicki used "Turning Leaves" prints by Holly Taylor. Can you see the bears and deer?
Thanks, Vicki for sharing this quilt with us. We know your friends will love it.

Kay brought in this top she recently finished. It was her first attempt using hexagons in a quilt (the entire top is hexies).
Kay hand pieced this top but will have it machine quilted after deciding what to use for the borders.
Congratulations, Kay. We think you did a great job!

Susan and Roxanne stopped by Wednesday with this stunning top. When finished, this quilt will be a door prize during the Eureka Springs quilt show May 6th and 7th.
Members of the guild made each block using English Paper Piecing.
Wow! I'm jealous of the lucky winner who gets to take this quilt home!

While she was here, Roxanne brought a "Public Potty Pouch" she made using some of the Moda scrap bags she bought from us.
The insert in Roxanne's "Potty Pouch" says "After spending a month on the road and using many poorly supplied public restrooms, I realized I would need to help myself. Thus, the "Public Potty Pouch" was conceived. Suggested supplies are: the end of a toilet roll (flattened); a few paper towels, flat packets of Cottonelle; a flat packet of Clorox wipes; a sliver of soap wrapped in foil; a small antibacterial gel, a couple toilet seat covers; an over the door hook for when there isn't a hook for coat/purse. A key ring has been added to the zipper so you can attach a car key if you don't want to take your whole purse or if the pouch is too big to fit inside".
Wow! What a great idea. Thanks, Roxanne for sharing such a nifty idea with us!
"Secret Siblings" have been busy! Vicki's s/s gave her a gift certificate for the adult coloring book of her choice.
Vicki chose Mary Engelbreit's "Color ME" coloring book.
Dorothy and Sharon's s/s gave each of them "Fat Quarter Bags" books from the shop.

Sharon told Dorothy she'd make it for her (and did). I'll use any excuse to take a picture so, I had to take this photo of Sharon giving Dorothy the finished product!

Vickie used scraps for this gorgeous top. We can't wait to see it when it's quilted and bound!
Would someone please tell Vickie my birthday is in May....pretty please!
I fell in love with Jan Patek's fabric collection called "Hawthorn Ridge" while shopping at Heavenly Notions in Granby (thanks, Jamie). I wanted to wrap myself in this fabric and take a nap!
We HAD to get these prints for the shop. This week we received more bolts of this fabulous collection as well as the fat quarter bundles. YIPPEE!!! I'm so excited to have these in stock.
We now have 20 bolts of this stunning collection; fat quarter bundles; layer cakes; charm packs; jelly rolls and mini-charms. YIPPEE!!

Everyone knows I'm a huge Kansas Troubles fan. "Cozy Cottage" is Lynne's latest collection AND it's flannel. YIPPEE!!!
We have the fat quarter bundles, layer cakes and charm packs of this super warm (and yummy) collection.
Just in time for those cold winter days.

Bingo (and his well behaved humans) stopped by for a visit Wednesday. He was impressed with the adult coloring books section but really just wanted to take a nap.
After a quick picture by yours truly, Bingo was ready to go!
Thanks, Bingo, for stopping by! Feel free to bring your humans back anytime!

We've rearranged the shop (again) to make room for the ever expanding"adult coloring book" section.
Now, all the coloring books (we have 40 different ones) and supplies (markers, colored pencils and gel pens) are all together.......instead of scattered all over the place (Thanks, Vicki).
The Bernette Deco is an embroidery only machine. The Bernette 800D serger is a great machine with several added features.
We also have a bunch of .pes format design cards (I forgot to get a picture of these) we've decided to sell.
Both machines (and the design cards) can be seen in the shop.
