I got a little out of whack posting stuff over Labor Day weekend. I thought I'd posted all the new stuff but.....hadn't! OOPS!!!
The pre-cuts of "Grand Traverse" by Minick and Simpson came in a couple of weeks ago....but I forgot to post them to the blog. Double OOPS!!!
|layer cakes, charm packs, jelly rolls and mini charms of "Grand Traverse"|
|16 new patterns using nine patches!|
As well as fat quarter bundles of "Penny's Pets" by Darlene Zimmerman. Quadruple OOPS!!

I truly thought I'd posted everything then found these pictures of four new bolts of "Sweet Baby" flannels that came in that same week.
The colors are a smidge darker in person than what the pictures show.
We also have the layer cakes and charm packs of this collection but....they're going fast.

I love anything by Bonnie Hunter. She really is the Queen of Scraps. Her latest book, "Addicted to Scraps" arrived this week and is flying out the door.
If you have a Go! cutter, you know how fabulous they are. We received two new dies this week: Bohemia #1 by Ricky Tims and "Kay's Bouquet".
We realize "Row by Row" is officially over but, when we saw this print, we had to have it.
I know it's really late in the game but, it's so cute, we couldn't resist.

The stuff Vicki and I ordered at market is starting to arrive. This week, we received the pre-cuts of "Farm Fun".
The fabric on the bolt should be here any day (the chicken wire prints are adorable).

"Cosmos", "Hot Pink" and "Dark Saddle" are the latest additions to the "Moda Marbles" section.
The latest additions to the "Bella Solids" section are: Parchment, Soft Yellow, Sister's Pink and Tranquil Aqua.

This lone print of "Alice's Scrapbag" also arrived a couple of weeks ago......this is the only bolt we received and apparently won't be getting any of the pre-cuts. RATS!

After re-arranging the shop (again) we discovered you really couldn't see our nifty totes. They really are spiffy.
Each tote has a removable bottom insert, zip closure, two sturdy handles and completely collapse when not in use. They're good sized and hold a bunch of stuff too.
For now, they're in front of the new shelving units but, may get moved a few more times before going to their forever homes!
|five different motifs to choose from|
|four more totes to choose from!|
Have I mentioned I love 'Show and Tell"? If not, I love "Show and Tell". I look forward to seeing what folks are working on as well as the story behind the project!
We don't care if you bought the fabric, pattern, thread, batting or backing from our shop or not. We just wanna see your stuff!
Gladys H. brought in this adorable baby quilt yesterday. She used all light colored batik prints for her (two week old) great-great niece's gift....then quilted it herself.
Thanks, Gladys for sharing this adorable quilt with us. We bet Lilianne Grace will love it too!

Sheila also dropped by yesterday. She does not know the meaning of the word 'small'!!! Everything she does is supersized.
The nine patch top she brought in yesterday is super king size. It was almost too big for her to hold up by herself!
Sheila also shared this apron she finished as a Christmas present for someone in her family (she finished the embroidery Friday night!!!).
Yesterday was "Adult Coloring Book" day at the shop. I broke out my set of 150 Prismacolor Colored Pencils, coloring books and got at it!
Shawn joined me......we had a blast....coloring....in our adult coloring books!
I won't mention Shawn finished two pages in her Mary Engelbreit coloring book while I barely got started on the page I was coloring....nope, not gonna mention it....
|Shawn finished one page....|

I mentioned to Dorothy I wanted to make something using the "Sweet Baby" flannels but couldn't decide what to make.
She suggested sewing to layer cake pieces together (right sides together) then cutting them apart in fourths for quick half square triangles.
I followed Dorothy's advice and instantly fell in love with the technique.
Now, I have to decide how to arrange the squares and whether to use the same prints in each block or mix them up.
Decisions! Decisions! Decisions!

Congratulations, Vickie! We wanna see what you make with the 'Sun Kissed' and "Sweet Baby" prints you chose.
|Vickie's two yards of free fabric!|
