Memorial Day Specials!

Can you believe it?  It’s Memorial Day weekend already!  It was just the first of May in my mind.  We ar003e really cruising through life these days so you better hang on.  We are having a great Summer Special this week I want to share with you.  There a million reasons why this is a great deal but the best deal is how well these are made and the way they will look in your summer decor.  We happen to have 16 of these wonderful patriotic “Flag Boxes” left from Grand Old FlagThey were originally $45.00 and from now unti011l they are gone they can be yours for only $30.00.  They are made with fabric, have leather trim, are lined and I love how great they look on the Independence Day quilt.  

  As long as we are all feeling patriotic I thought this was a good time to introduce you to “Liberty Star” it is a new 27″ x 27″ patriotic topper made up out of the Settlement fabric.  Suzanne designed this pattern.  The kits are $47.50 and pattern needed sells for $9.00.  You will not get it done this weekend but summer is coming and so is the Fourth of July, so given its size I think you might want to think about making up this great littl010e summer handwork project. 

If you and your family are heading out soon on summer vacation and you like to take a portable handwork project along we have several but I think you will enjoy Stacy’s “Cherry Hollow Farm” kit.    We just got this framed.  I have a hard time resisting any pattern with a good house on it.  The kit comes complete in a great little canvas bag for $44.00.  I imagine you all have lots of plans for the weekend. 

FYI: Please remember we are closed on Monday Memorial Day May 25th  so our

emp015loyees get to enjoy some family time or just catching up with life in general. 

We are  pleased to be debuting “Rachelle” this week, another new quilt pattern and kit.  This was inspired by an antique quilt Suzanne found this winter.  The antique fabric you see being used is a new Settlement background that helps age your projects with ease.  Blue is the perfect summer compliment, it never goes out of style so I thought you might enjoy a little peek.  It measures

62″ x 68″.  The kits is $130.00 and the pattern is needed and sells for $9.00.   Just mention when you order if you would like a backing added.


That’s right I’m thinking after a few frosts, ice pellets etc. it might just be safe to say its really Springtime in Spring Green.  It was almost 80 degrees this afternoon when I got in the car.  Of course not quite that hot but really nice.  Reed and 013I have been waiting for the birds and this year I am still waiting.  It stumps us but I hope they are just late finding the feeders.  I 009had a great Mother’s Day as I hope you all did too.  It was a small group of us but very enjoyable.  This weather is prompting me to switch us up in the shop so I will give you a few views of things that might be of interest.  Remember last year the bee fabric in the Wisconsin quilts?  We made up the “Bee Garden” Quilt and we saved them for  this season we even have it on Special this month. The quilt measures 68″ x 70″ and the kit can be purchased for $103.00. It fits in with  all of our aviary prints, skeps and great bee home decor we are enjoying and would be a great summer quilt project.  I think we are into the bees  more this year because Roxy, our new shop girl, just got a huge amount of bees and hives in to tend.  We all hope to be enjoying honey this fall.. 

I try to introduce you to more of our New Settlement Quilts for many reasons.  This line of fabric has many 001looks and works well with other lines.  It is good for summer because it can take on a great patriotic flair depending on the fabric placement or can easily go into007 fall its all about choice and placement. This week I am showing off Selma’s “Desoto Stars”It is lots of fun to piece and look how good it looks on the bed table.  I do believe it will work pretty swell as a table topper.  It is 48″ x 48″ and the kits are $92.50, that includes backing and binding, you will need a pattern and that is $9.00. 

Selma’s “Town Square” is another great example of a fun Table Quilt or Summer Picnic Quilt.  It is a 66″ square.  The kit sells for $101.00 and uses the pre-cut 10 inch cuts.   I so love the Olive Branch stems, so simple but look so great alone or mixed with other stems.  They sell for $12.95 per stem but as you can see you only need a few and they can be used every021 season.

Our next quilt is called “Mississippi Flyway” it is hanging on the cupboard door.  This was also designed by Selma, it measure 62″ x 76″.  What  a great example of the use of blue, grey and brown colors.  It has movement that creates interest and looks great, you will find it easy to blend into your 027decor.  “Independence Day” is on the bed and is still a favorite, it goes together so quickly because it is a designer cloth and that means you can determine your size and designate its purpose. 

I need to bring another quilt back to your attention.  “Gift Basket” is so fine we fell in love with it at fall market and knew we just had to find the right fabric combination to make it sing for our customers. This is a Laundry Basket design

I love the use of the Marcus Spice Palette fabric it turned out to be just what we wer028e looking for.  We have it  kitted for $107.00 and the the quilt measures at 56 1/2″ x 64 1/2″.  A pattern is needed when ordering.  Suzanne’s “Friendship House” quilt looks like it was made to complement it and our Tin Serving tray works too.  By the way002 this is easy to use with all the summer entertaining coming. 

We are all always on the look out for Civil War Era fabric.  This is a brand new line being introduced this week at market.  Stacy West is the designer, she is also the designer for Buttermilk Basin patterns.   Congrats to her it is going to be a winner.   This wonderful line is full of old cheddar and other relevant colors.  We like the neutral shirting’s too because they never go out of style.  You are going to enjoy using this collection.  You can see our Settlement Quilt pictured004 by it and there is no reason to think these fabrics couldn’t make this little quilt sing too.  the fabric is $11.00 per yard. 

The last thing today is an adorable piece of handwork called “Button Button!”  We have it all kitted compl025ete with finishing fabric for $48.00.  What a simple way to use your buttons you have collected.  It gets aged and I know your will love displaying it and using it when you stitch with your friends. 

I am off to  quilt market tomorrow so next week could really be special but before I go I need to show you Maggie’s new Village Village_GreenGreen” that  she designed for Blackberry Primitives.  The kit has been ordered and sells for $308.00 or a pattern can be purchased for $28.00.  What a special summer project for our handwork lovers.  Let us know if you are interested as I have 6 reserved and will need to know if I need to purchase more while I’m at market this weekend.  Just look at those beautiful hand dyed wool colors and I am guessing velvet was also used to make it even more special.  Here’s to springtime!

Dream With Us!

Guess 003who’s back?   What a wonderful surprise for all of us yesterday when are favorite  Folk-art Angel appeared on our door step.  I thought we would never get so lucky as to see her again.    We have 10 in stock and they retail for $174.95.  If she is on you006r wish list now is the time to let us know.  Mother’s Day is next weekend already and I can’t imagine a better way to say Happy Mother’s Day!

  I think her blooms could be saying Happy May Day to all of you from all of us shop girls!  What a beautiful May Day we are experiencing.

We just got in the most wonderful new line of fabric by Barbara Brackman called 009“Union Blues.”  This is for our Civil War lovers.  The old army greens are really some of my favorites, just the right hues for primitive quilts and handwork.

Dreaming is what the shop girls and  I do everyday.  Sometimes we dream bold, sometimes fun, and sometimes more subdued but we always strive to stay true to our roots and relevant to the times we live in. This week the shop girls are dreaming “Quilt Wisconsin”  the fabric has arrived and now its our turn to make some magic happen.  Suzanne has a new Stadium Blanket you are going to need for sure, Selma is making a quilt that will fit a twin or can be a great Game Day Cover-up.  Gwen is working on an amazing runner and we have a Tailgate Topper and that means you will be ready to party hardy at home and at the stadium.  W001e all really love this years fabric and I am quite sure you will too, see you in June. 002

We just got New “Dream Pillows” in and the color is definitely right with all of our Settlement blue hues.  The pillow retails for $43.95. It is really a swell idea for many reasons.  I think it is fitting for graduation and wedding showers as well as a bed or sofa.

Can you believe Mother’s Day is only a few weeks away?  We just got in the 004greatest cream ware batter bowls, they sell for $30.00. 

Our Antique looking ice cream scoops are also pretty swell and will bring back lots of good memories for sure.  The scoops are $30.00.  

We girls all love to serve on “Cake Plates” and this set of three with the domes seems like a really special idea you might want to consider if not for mom it would be a wonderful shower or wedding idea.  The  cake plate sets  come with the domes and008 are priced at $80.00. 

If you remember we had a really great set of soaps and soap dish that we introduced for our Spring Open House.   Mom’s always enjoy a new soap and  the porcelain and tin soap dish looks great wherever you decide to put it.  It’s a classic farmhouse natural look.   Don’t forget our “Mona B Bags” and scarves its whats hot this spring, you see them everywhere.  We have the popular infinity and just great scarves that are fun to own for the season. This can be your sparkle, so to speak, when you feel you need a little pick me up!  The next new item I am crushing on big time today is the “Coo013khouse Towel Rack”.  This will be great in the kitchen in a bathroom and you will get great compliments on it for sure.  So functional and 015so unique.  They are $45.00.  We just got in  new“Lepto Basil Citrus Wreaths”.   Your cost is $28.00.   These little wreaths add so much to your decor.  Any spot you hang them in, windows, doors whatever works its just seems to be the right accent for any season.

FYI: We have he Settlement Collection in several pre-cuts and if your mom loves handwork and piecing this would be a wonderful gift idea too.  If all else fails there is a gift certificate just waiting to get mailed your way!  Happy Spring!

Still a Proud Badger Fan Here!

I love our Badger team and was disappointed for them because they were some of  the most personable, honorable young men and all good team players I have seen in a long time.  I heard them called the “media darlings” and I have to agree.  I would have so loved the win for coach 007and the team and hope the opportunity comes around again.  Can’t help being a proud badger fan no matter what!

“Fancy Creek” AKA “Hometown USA” is one  great little quilt designed by Suzanne.  She came out with the pattern last year but when The Settlement fabric came in the writing was on the wall to do a remake since we sold out of all of the fist run of fabric kitsIt is that time of year and actually it is a classic and timeless quilt project.  Our kits are packaged complete with backing and binding for $45.00 and the pattern is $9.00.  It measures 27″ x 31″ and our Angel loves holding it close to her heart. 

We are still wa005iting for our pre-cuts from the Settlement Collection but the word is out they have shipped so we are close to being ready to ship fat quarters, nickel squares etc.  I will let you know right away when they arrive.  Take time to look at Carol Hopkins Grand Old Flag projects they are pictured on line under the event.  They are so great and I hope if you have been waiting to see projects you will find these are just what you have been hoping for.   I also posted the new Prim from Pinkeep.  We expect linen this week and shipping next week!  FYI:  There is a New Girl Club I hope you will consider, be sure to read all about it, size is limited and you will love what we are doing.

Happy Easter!

It’s almost Easter again!  It has kind of sneaked up on me this year.  Again!!  Don’t you think it007‘s because it’s early this year?   I think that may be the case as we all seem to be scrambling this week to get things ready.013  I have not done too much to my house as I have been super busy.  I was thinking about it all and I think I am lucky to have a few pops of wonderful spring.  The past few weeks have flown by with so many things going on I hardly know what day it is.  The good news is  I have a new fabric line completed, taxes done, open house behind me and working hard to get my kitchen at Riverbanks settled.  We are off to Riverbanks in the morning to tie up some loose ends and I will be back by Good Friday and get 009ready for the family’s annual celebration.   

I just got the new “Buttermilk and Blue Sampler Sewing  Bag” model back today.  It is really swell and I thought you might enjoy seein001g it completed.  It is fitting into the decor so perfectly and I think you can see it would be excellent framed too.

Maggie’s auto is getting processed today, I put a picture up on the Girl Clubs page.   “Live each season”, good advise for sure!  

We have  sweet little ribbons and the greatest little bunny stamp to make tags and stamp your cards with.  I also love our mini olive

bu005ckets.  This one is filled with our new basket quilt.  I think the bunny would004 love to deliver one of these.  Happy Easter!  We are open on Good Friday but closed on Easter Sunday to be with our familys.  Savor the greatness of family!

Come on In!

The w015reath is hung on the door, the urns are full of fresh blooms, the windo016ws are dressed and the little details are worked out.   Spring is in the air at 133 Jefferson!  The shop opens at 10:00AM on March 20th and we are ready to preview our “Natural Farmhouse” Decor and “Spring Quilt Collection”.  I hope you have plans to join us sometime over the weekend. 

The shop girls have made up some special “Lavender Sachet” kits with our linens and011 great Japanese woven fabric.  These will make great little Easter Basket fillers for your quilting friends.  Each kit makes004 three sachets, we have included the ribbon and the lavender too for $10.00.  They really are all pretty sweet and there are five combinations to choose from.  I imagine you might enjoy one of each in your Easter bowl or basket. 

Since we are talking about baskets the “Gift Basket” quilt is in the window.  It is a quilt that can go into any decor because the spice fabric collection we used is  so mellow and easy to live with.    Maybe the Bunny will decide to deliver you one in o008ur sweet new little  reproduction olive buckets.  I know I would love that idea.  The buckets are available in two sizes. The prices range from $20.00 to $23.75.  002  I am loving the fresh quince blooms mixed in with our silks. 

I was telling you about the “Sweet Temper” sampler I have not landed on the frame yet but this will give you an idea of how special it is.  I think it is one of my favorites but I happen to like several of this designers samplers.  Sweet Temper is from Shakespears Peddler.  I chose a 36 count Weeks Beige linen, changed up some of the colors and I can’t wait to  get it in a great frame.  The pattern is $18.00 and it can019 be kitted for you for $81.25.   I need to continue dotting all my I’s and get ready for the morning.

Spring Begins @ 133!

Spring will have officially arrived when we invite you to join us for our 2nd Annual  Spring Open House March 20 – 22 !  It is all about the “Natural Farmhouse” trend, a new season and how to feather your home decor .  It has been so invigorating getting the shop transformed and folks I have flipped our decor completely001 already two times in 2015.  I know I must be possessed.   I plan this out on paper for weeks knowing all of the new decor I have ordered and getting to execute it is like giving birth.  I can hardly wait to see if you are as excited over the changes as the shop girls and I are.  The girls have all worked hard to give you new quilts for our “2015 Spring Collection”.  The quilts are like the frosting on the cake, it is the inspiration I count on to make everything exciting for all of you.   This is the year we can say028 in fanatically one of the trending colors that has been been missing is back!  If you look at my new Settlement Collection you will see it is a big player it is BLUE!  Blue is comforting but what I am loving is “Textures”.  I am beginning to see texture is the secret ingredient, that is where you get depth, create interest and richness that complement your natural homes.  the quilt on the bed is called “Independence Day”, it was my inspiration for the Settlement Collection, it is a whole clot011h fabric and it has been put together and quilted exactly like my antique.  A big thank you goes to our quilter Sue for making this happen.  You will also get a small version alternative in the pattern to make a table topper.  The large quilt is 85″ x 92″ and kitted sells for $99.50.  You can see from these photos that grey and 011brown play well with the blue.  

Selma has designed “Mississippi Flyway” using the grey, brown, cream and blue combinations in the new fabric line.  It is hands down another winner, it has great movement and interest this could easily be a choice for your spring sewing project.  This quilt measures 62″ x  76″ and the kit sells for $116.00.

“Whippoorwill Lane” is a new natural designed by Suzanne.  It is visual014ly soothing to look at and has that Natural Farmhouse feel that’s trending today.  This quilt measures 75″ x 85″ and kitted sells at $124.50.   Patterns are needed for all of our kits and retail for $9.00.  We can always add backing if you want us to. 

The next quilt is known as “Aubrey Corners”.  Aubrey Corners was designed by Suzanne.  This pattern001 came out last fall and our kits sold out immediately and that is when we decided that the Settlement fabric would be a wonderful alternative so that is how this quilt evolved.  It is a great quilt for spring and when we were getting it ready for fall market it was great shown off with fresh Christmas Greens too.  The colors dance through the design and are like looking at Easter eggs or Christmas bulbs.  I chose to show this quilt off as a topper on our table.  Fresh blo015ssoms and white dishes are just the perfect accent this quilt can support.  Aubrey Corners measures 63′ x 70″ and the quilt kit is available for $105.00. 

Suzanne also made up this Laundry Basket Quilt pattern called “Scrappy Chevran” .  You have to admit this is a pretty impressive quilt.  It is also patterned after an antique quilt Edyta Sitar owns.  This quilt really fits into our spring theme too.  It measures 64 1/2″  x 76 1/2″ and requires a whole lot of fabric to create the visual th019at’s needed.  The kit is $183.00 and the pattern is $10.00. our Vintage Doll sells for $58.00. You will find the urn filled with pussy willows, fresh bags of lavender, nests with greens, metal organizers, and the reproduction bee canvas I used as the backdrop all drawing you into the new season.   We can order the  Apiary Printed Canvas, they are sold as a set for $150.00.   You might want to consider a smaller scaled framed set for $137.50 and we have them in stock.

We have another new quilt in our spring collection by Edyta Sitar.   We fell in love with this at fall quilt market  it is called “Gift Basket”.  I could hardly wait until it was made but finding the right fabric is always the first ingredient for us.  It just so happened Marcus Brot022hers New Spice Palette Collection was what got us inspired.  The quilt measures out to be 56 1/2″ x 64 1/2″. This size is great  for your wall or used as a spring cover up.  The kits are $107.00 and the pattern is $10.00.  I will have a picture for you sometime before Friday, Gwen is finishing the binding 024tonight.  Its pretty swell for sure.

I hope you can remember our “Long Winter’s Nap” and it has been a long winter for many of you but this quilt is the perfect way to welcome Spring.   I love this quilt and when you see it again you will agree it is a classic.  It is 72″ x 90″.  The  setting fabric, a woven homespun, is what makes this quilt come together.    The kit is $164.00. 

“Friendship House” was another great quilt we introduced to you last year.  It is a pattern designed by Suzanne.  It is a very usable size measuring out at 81″ x 94″.  The kit sells for $187.00.  I have it displayed on our mantel.  I am expecting a beautiful sampler to arrive that will be displayed with it.  Its a007ll definitely a good natural look that f028its into our Farmhouse themed open house.

The last quilt I will talk about tonight is called “Jamestown”.
This pattern is also designed by Suzanne.  It uses my Settlement Collection.  The kit is $112.00.  It is a s
maller quilt that would make a great cover up.   

Spring Blooms natural eggs, old grass , great wooden bowls, fresh scents, olive display buckets, antique bottles I am loving to use, olive branch stems, and citrus and boxwood wreaths and wire angel wings are just some more ideas for you to ponder on. 

Here is another real013 great thing you have already seen our new handwork  it was made for our Natural Farmhouse theme for sure.  Everything goes and that couldn’t make me any happier that is a023lways my ultimate goal when I am buying.   Just look at Chessie & Me’s new spring handwork.  ”

This is one of our n023ew  Mona B spring bags which is kind of perfect.  We also have many new  infinity scarves to dress up your Easter attire you will also enjoy.    I am going to stop here and will plan to add more pictures before Friday.

Happy Spring!

Oh My G! Market was so Good!

I can hardly stand it and I know how anxious you all are to see what I have bought for you from Nashville.  I aLDD-Eliza-Mitchellm not even sure where to start but I think I am up for the challenge.  I am going to start with La D Da.  I could hardly wait to see her designs and I was not disappointed .  Lori has re-done an antique sampler I feel everyone that loves samplers will be smitten with I know I was.  It is the “Eliza Mitchell”.  It is stitched on 35 count Confederate Gray linen and it uses NPS .  I have to say I feel the silk will be your choice but DMC threads are LDD-Garden-Birdsalso given if you you are not inclined.  I will be ordering the silk so be sure to let us know if that is your preference for this great sampler.  The chart is $12.00. 

Lori did two really fun kits I think you will find needful.  “Garden Birds” which is $50.00.  The kit comes withLDD-Basket-Weave-Needle-Kee linen, wool, finishing fabric, threads a needle and thread minder.  You are ready to stitch this and I know you will want to.  She also did a “Basket Weave Needle-Keep Kit”.  This is super sweet and has everything you need in the kit for $30.00.  Garden Maiden and the Birdie Stitch Roll are now available in chart form, the charts are $12.00.  The last chart is a birth sampler and I know everyone is always trying to find one of these.  It is called “Honeysuckle Birth Sampler”.  It is delicate, the colors are perfect and it is LDD-Honeysuckle-Birth-Samplsomething a grown up baby will want to always cherish.  Lori recommends we use the 32 count Weeks Beige linen for the sampler.  The chart sells for $10.00.

Stacy, Stacy, Stacy you’ve done it again!  She definitely had one of my favorite market pics!  “Buttermilk and Blue Sampler Sewing Bag” is nothing short of dreamy to look at.  It would also be amazing framed.  Stacy used Gentle Arts Wool threads on 32 count Parchment linen, old SN-Summer-House-Necklace-Kiivory wool, buttons and hSN-Buttermilk-&-Blue-Sampleomespun to finish the bag.  I will kit it complete and without the homespun.  I believe you will still want to use the wool if you decide to go ahead and frame it.  All of Stacy’s patterns retail out at $14.00

Every year we are also tempted with an Exclusive Limited kit just made up for market attendees.  This year she made up a super cute little Summer House Necklace Kit.  The cost of this kit includes the finishing supplies, thread and linen for $28.00.  SN-Spotted-Chcken-Sewing-Ba

  “Spotted Chickens Sewing Bag & Pinkeep”, “Tabby Cat Sewing pouch with Mouse & Strawberry”, Squirrel Pinkeep & “Flower Basket Thread Board”, “Primrose Farm Sewing Basket & Heart Pinkeep”,  “Midnight in the Strawberry Garden- Thread BoardSN-Primrose-Farm-Sewing-Bas & Strawberry Pinkeep”, and finally you will enjoy thePrized Pig Sewing Book & Flower Urn PinkeepMidnightIn-the-Strawberry-G“.  So happy to know that amazing girl.    Besides the new charts you will also love her New “Cherry Hollow Farm Sampler” this is another limited kit made especSN-Cherry-Hollow-Farmially for this market.  The cost of this kit is $44.00. 

WhenSN-Prized-Pig-Sewing-Book it comes to Blackbird Designs and the quality books they publish we know you will never be disappointed and the new forty page

“In Friendships Way” is another big winner you will not want to ignore!   I am in love and can’t wait to get the books inspiration  the “1861 Antique SamplerBBD-In-Friendship's-Way stitched for the shop.   There are button boxes, strawberries, basket pinkeeps, and many other boxes to name drop a few of the other projects in the book.   The sampler is stitched on Picture This Plus 32 ct. Mello linen.   Everyone loves the rewards patterns and the two new spring designs “Down in the Valley” and “My Pinkeep Rose” will be something to add to your to do lists.  The  book retails for $24.00 and the BBD-1861-Antique-Samplerrewards are all $9.00.  Happy Spring! 

Speaking of Happy Spring With Thy Needle and Thread has really gone and done it.  I so love Brenda’s designs and as usual she really knocked her newest  market/Spring designs straight out of the park!  It is hard to pick a favorite but I will give BDD-Down-in-the-Valleyyou a few of mine and the rest you can see on line.  “Button Button”!  “Pin Feathers”, “Spring Greetings Bouquet”, and “A Tisket A TaBBD-My-Pink-Rosesket” are small but worthy projects for your consideratiWTNT-Button-Buttonon.  The patterWTNT-Spring-Greeting-BouquensWTNT-Pin-Feathers are all $9.00.  By now you must be giddy with excitement, the big dilema is which one to start first.  We have a limited amount of wooden bases for the pinkeeps and they retail out at $4.00.  As you can start to see for us to be getting ready for a Natural Vintage Spring Open House all of these paWTNT-Be-Happytterns are just what we needed.    Now we can talk about samplers.  “Be Happy Humble & Kind“, is soft and easy to look at and goes right to my WTNT-A-Tiskey-A-Taskethappy place with the motifs and house, “Stars & Stripes” is also right there too because I love subtle patriotic. 

” Summer At Cherry Hill”andIn Season” is so good and another favorite because of color and motifs and it has the greatest quote “Love is the Fruit in Season at all Times”.  There are still two more “The Potting SWTNT-Stars-&-StripeshWTNT-Summer-at-Cherry-Hilled”, “Shepherds Sampler”.  I don’t have them all piWTNT-In-Seasonctured here but check the market arrivals gallery you are going to find it hard to decide which is your very favorite, there will be no more idle hands.  This is such a small sampling but it is a start. 

Are you ready for me to switch this up a bit?   I was thinking you might like to know the New “Settlement” fabric has dropped and is on the floor!!!!   There are 38 SKU’S counting the Designer Inspiration Cloth.  It retails at $11.30 a yard.  Our pre-cuts are not in yet but will be.   We will be offering you many choices and be aware we have used the spec002ial cuts in the Shop Girl Quilt patterns that go with this line of fa007bric and they are also available. We can hardly stand it in here.   the color palette is one that will work with many other fabric lines and as always continues to work with my previous lines.   There is so much to do I

don’t  know where to start but I just felt you might like to see what is Trending Today @133!



My Goodness it i007s almost Valentine’s Day! 

Hope you have plans either to get out with friends or your number one making your weekend extra special!008

  This has been another busy week for the shop girls.  We are shipping all of the  New 2015 Stacy Nash Club kits.  I put a picture up on line for you view, you will find it under the  Girl Club tab, and also on the newest Face Book post.  It is a heart in the best way, not a screaming Valentine a classic heart for all seasons.  Hope you like your first kit. 

I have also switched up the “Red Quilts” vignette so you can get another view of our quilts.  We had suc009h an enjoyable weekend last week and  we will have valentine treats for you this weekend too.    We have been wanting to make up Maggie B’s “Heart Strings” and we got that done too. Kits are available for  $29.75003.  The kits have wool, silk, velvet, textured fabric, homespun and reproduction fabric creating a wonderful string of hearts that fit into your Prim decor.

We have a few new great kit items that are left over from 2014 Boxwood Gathering that you can find under New Arrivals on line.  These are Linda Thraen’s great projects and there are only a few left but if you enjoy The “Pinkeep”projects you might want to take a look at these. 

We girls got a little crazy013 today and decided to live on the edge and dream big!  XO XO!

So Many Good Reasons to Celebrate February!

There are so many good reasons to visit  or call us this month.  The girls and I are happy to be working with The Go Red for Women Campaign inspiring and creating beautiful Red Quilts for your enjoyment.  Six more weeks of winter is plenty of time for you to create any of our new Red Quilt Collection 005quilts and we have them all up on line and in the shopp008ing cart. 

This is “Hugs & Kisses”!  What a great little quilt for your angels to hold and for you to top a table with.  The kit is $44.00 and the pattern is $9.00. XO!  XO! is from Suzanne!

Next you can see our New “Journey” Quilt.   Jeanne made this quilt up.   The quilt pattern is a Laundry Basket pattern.  It’s really a sweet nine patch treat!  We also sell the big linen XO pillows and Love You More pillows.  Kind of perfect for our month and a kiss and hug always works for me!  

I have another picture of “Rosebud” I would like to sh009are with you. This is Selma’s first Nickel Club offering for this year.   It has been popular and the fresh looking silk Tulips really set it off.

Everyone is in love with Suzanne’s “Lovebirds” and it is easy to why.  We are all loving the soft colors because it makes it really an001 easy quilt to use anywhere in any decor.  It’s another classic.  The last quilt we will show you is Coronado and it is getting bound as I write this.  Lavonne made this quilt and this version looks so different than the one we have up for silent auction.  i am told you can see them on line on February 6th.

  We are all trying to keep busy waiting for calls and a customer.  Suzanne was grooming Selma for her trip to Hawaii, she leaves us on Thursday, Jeanne is busy binding our last quilt Coronado.   Lavonne is vacuuming, and Gwen an017d I are working on the computers.  Its snowing so 018I guess everyone is staying home today.   we have been getting the School Room ready for guests on Saturday. 

If you can’t come and join us for the Make It Take It  “Hearts of Friendship”and wish to have a kit sent please let us know.  Gwen has the kits on line so you can easily order one.

  We also just found our great French General  Bird Bags.  They were 016buried in the SchooRoom kitchen.  What a surprise! 

Do you remember this great bag?   It works as one of the best bags for grocery shopping and just for carrying things back and forth to work, its so good because it has a gusset and holds more than the usual bag.  The bags sell for $25.00 could be a super important bag you will love owning.  When I was in002 Atlanta one of my companies gave me the greatest bag.  I have to use it because it say this:  Super Important Shit.   I carry the super important stuff to work everyday, we are all bag ladies around here.  It really has instigated some great conversations and the smiles you get are all worth it.  We love bags like we love Journals, don’t miss the new journals Selma and Gwen created for this event.

I can finally show you “Coronado”.  It is a great quilt for  all seasons!  Hope you enjoy this view I have it shown coming out of the greatest canvas tote bag.  Maggie came with one last fall and we all thought it was perfect for toting quilts you might be working on at retreats or just finished goo003ds, even using it for an overnight bag works.  Maggie packed hers full for our trunk show. The totes are on line and sell for $80.00.
