Summer Vacation Projects!

We have at least 12 of our great “Star Spangled Quilt” kits left from 2012.

This is a beautiful quilt and Vickie used our favorite Blackbird Designs Blueberry Crumb Cake fabric.   This quilt measures 74″x 74″  it’s a great size.  If you remember this line, it had the most wonderful and popular background sampler fabric, this kit has 3 1/4 yards in it.  If you did not like the quilt pattern this is going to be a great buy for just the fabrics.  The original kit was $188.65 and NOW you can purchase this kit for $130.00.   A variation of blue, tan and cream make this pattern dance.  The patterns are sold separately for $10.00.

“Parade Day Pinwheels”

This was inspired by an antique quilt I bought at the Ohio Country Living Fair.  We made it up two years ago and it turned out to be a great idea for a Vintage Christmas quilt.   As we were looking at it again this past week I said “I keep my old quilt out all year long and all we need to do is change our cover on the pattern and we will be G to G for summer”.  This is way more than just a Christmas quilt.   We made the quilt out of flannel so it is extremely soft and easy to cuddle up in.  I think this is a perfect Parade Day Pinwheel Quilt, the name came to me and I think when you see it pictured you will get just as excited all over again as we are.  The quilt is 74″ x 81″.  A great bed size for sure.   The cost WAS $135.00 but we are offering this to you on special for $$100.00.  The pattern is $8.50 and sold separately.

“Independence Day”

A Blue star field is all across the top of this quilt and then you have hourglass red pieced stripes and a great eagle print used for the alternate stripe.  It is a summer hummer for sure and would be great out on the porch swing or summer porch cot.  It measures 72″ x 90″ and regularly sells for $113.50.  Our summer vacation special if $75.00 and this price includes the pattern. It is a great collection of fabrics anyway you slice it.

Enjoy an easy piece called “One Patch Doll Quilt” the pattern is  from the Civil War Sewing Circle Book  which is a favorite book of ours.  Gwen made this up for us and it has been a hit but we got carried away and made more that we needed and now we must give you a special deal.  I’m thinking great gift idea or a great sew in  day with friends.  It measures 25 1/2″ x 25 1/2″ which is a good size for the middle of your table top.  Originally  the kit that includes the binding sold for $26.00.

Our Sale Price $18.95.

This is “George II” it is  what I would call a great historical quilt and really fits for folks that like the Civil War Era.  The fabrics are so in the right time period too.  Our quilt measures 80″ x 80″.  The original cost is $102.50 and we have this kit discounted to $70.00.


“Tobacco Rose” is a wonderful little cheater quilt.  The color and print choice is a huge reason it makes up into such a easy quilt to live with.  It is a wonderful quilt for someone in a nursing home, it’s not to big and the colors are pleasoning and cheerful.  It is 55″ x 75″ and the bottom line is we made to many and need to make room for the many new choices we have to offer.  It was $60.00 and Now you can own this kit which includes the pattern for only $48.00.

We love, love love this quilt. It is called “Dakota Patches”it measures “72 x 84″, retails for $110.00 and we have discounted this quilt down to $88.00. It is an easy nine patch quilt to piece but even more atractive is the colors and fabric we used to set it all together.  This is deal of the century and when you lookat the great fabrics we used you will have to agree.

Washinton”s Legacy” is  a wonderful medium sized quilt project.   It measures  50 x 50 and

was originally priced at $62.50 but it is discounted now and can be yours for  only $40.00.  The fabrics Vickie chose for this quilt are all from the Civil War period.

Another  great little find these past two weeks was finding our runner for the Illinois Farm Boy.  We had several that had gotten stowed away and we had forgotten all about them, Oh My Gosh.  That means you can own this little kit that everyone loved for only $20.00.  It makes a wonderful gift idea too.
