Show and Tell; What's in Your Bag; A Finer Edge; Miss Lilly; patriotic Stonehenge; templates; Mottos to Live By; Bees N Blooms

Vickie brought in this stunning quilt she's entering in the Ozark Country Quilter's quilt show next weekend (after putting the binding on).  

Wow!  This quilt is gorgeous in person.  I hope my camera captured the different colors and shapes of this Milleflori beauty.  

Thanks, Vickie for sharing it with us!

Ten year old Olivia is at it again!  She brought in this tote bag she's working on (and deciding on her next project).  The black print will be an inside pocket for Olivia's latest creation.  

Keep up the good work, Olivia.  You're going a great job.

Mitch and Ireene stopped by yesterday with some "Show and Tell" of their own! 

Ireene made the quilt tops, Mitch quilted them on his long arm quilting machine.  Wow!  

My camera didn't do a very good job of capturing the backings but, you can see Mitch's quilting really well.  
Thanks, Ireene and Mitch for sharing your quilts with us.

Sharon's "What's in Your Bag" demos yesterday were great. She completed two bags, sold some bags and took orders for more!  

At this rate, I may need to order more patterns!

Scott Chisholm of "A Finer Edge" was here yesterday sharpening scissors, knives or anything else needing to be sharpened.  

Scott does a great job and we can't wait for him to come back.

Missy wasn't able to attend our "Secret Sister" banquet last year but stopped by yesterday to pick up her 'reveal gift' from 'sister' Nola.  

Missy loved her gifts, especially the spatula!

We love it when four legged kids come to the shop.  

We were thrilled to see 11 week old Miss Lilly (and her humans, Ben and Jen) yesterday.  

Lilly is a Chesapeake Bay Retriever and was instantly adored by everyone in the shop (as quilters, we particularly love the zig zag pattern of fur down her spine).  

We fell in love with Miss Lilly and can't wait for her to come back to the shop.   

Thanks Ben and Jen for bringing your sweetie pie baby to the shop.  She's a keeper!

see the zig zag pattern down her spine? 

After some re-arranging we were able to get "The Potting Shed" collection onto shelves!  

I decided to take more pictures of this collection since I wasn't very happy with last week's pics. 

Hopefully, you can see these prints better than the pictures I posted last week.  

We also have all the pre-cuts of this collection but I forgot to get better pictures of them.  I also didn't take better pics of the two panels......OOPS!

If you've known me for more than five minutes you know "Quilts of Valor" is very near and dear to my heart.  

We were thrilled to receive several patriotic Stonehenge prints (including the panel pictured below) from Northcott this week.  

Any of these prints would be fabulous for your next Quilt of Valor project.

 After watching several tutorials by pre-cut Queen Jenny Doan, I fell in love with her templates and had to have them in the shop. 

Aside from being super easy to use, all Missouri Star Quilt Company templates are Made In The U.S.A. Way to go, Jenny!  

We now have all Missouri Star Quilt Company templates (19 different ones) in stock.

I love anything by Mary Engelbreit.  I spin straight up when she comes out with a new fabric collection.  

"Mottos to Live By" is in a word....adorable.  We're thrilled to have several bolts of her latest collection (and the panel) of Mary's latest fabrics.

Calling all Kansas Troubles fans:  This week we received pre-cuts of the latest Kansas Troubles collection called "Bees N Blooms".  They're so darn cute.  

We have the fat quarter bundles, layer cakes, charm packs, jelly rolls and mini-charms of this super cheery collection.  Love it!

The Potting Shed; Prismacolor colored pencils, "Show and Tell"

I spun straight up, squealed like a little girl and was doing the happy dance when Sweetness opened a stack of boxes this week.  

Inside was the much anticipated "Potting Shed" collection by Holly Taylor.  We now have 38 super yummy bolts (including both panels) and all the pre-cuts.  YIPPEEE!!!  I'm so excited.  

I love the names of the colors from this collection: Phlox, Dark Moss, Sand, Top Soil, Antique White, Celery, Fern, Violet and Light Violet.  These sound more like flowers in a garden than fabric on the bolt! 

I'm not happy with these pictures but, after moving everything around (more than once) to get better pictures, I finally gave up and put them on the floor. 

Needless to say, these pictures do NOT do this collection justice.  These prints are much yummier in person.  

Be warned:  more than half of this collection is already 'out of stock' at the warehouse and will not be re-printed.  If you see something you like, get it while you can.  When it's gone, it's gone.

I'm in love with Prismacolor colored pencils.  They're so much better than the cheapo waxy colored pencils I bought at a big box store.  

This week we received the set of 48 colored pencils. With their arrival, we now have sets of 12, 24, 36 and now 48 to choose from.  

I bought a set of 36 for myself and I doubt I'll ever use anything else for coloring.  

My set of 36 is on the counter in the shop.  Feel free to check them out when you're here the next time.

Becky was an innocent bystander in the shop this week.  She had no idea she was in danger......of me stealing her purse.  She used Kansas Troubles prints for the 'Bow Tucks Tote' she made.  I was in love. It's so pretty.   

Before anyone asks, I did not steal Becky's purse.

Olivia's first placemat 

We love it when young 'ens come to the shop with "Show and Tell".  

Ten year old Olivia (and mom Beth) stopped by yesterday for Olivia's next project.  

Olivia brought several projects she'd made and wanted to share with us.

Olivia made a couple of placemats which she also quilted herself.

Olivia wanted to make her Aunt something so, she made this mug rug which has a pocket in the middle. How cute is this? 

Olivia also brought her very first project:  a hot pad which she also quilted herself.  

Thanks, Olivia for sharing your projects with us.  We can't wait to see your next creations!
