Black Friday Specials

Friday and Saturday November 28 & 29

Discounted 40%

This is now my third and final attempt to tell you about what is on sale this weekend, it is late and I still have so much writing to do not to mention all the cooking to get Thanksgiving ready.  So it is pictures and prices!  I am so sorry I have to say my frustration w003ith this computer never ends!!!!  It really looked great once, it was updated and saved and now totally gone again.


From Our Wisconsin Quilt Collection!  “Wish You Were Here  is  now can be yours for only $8a perfect idea for friends that have moved and family that love our state.  This was designed by Suzanne.  It was $114.00 and now can be yours for only $68.40.

The next quilt was designed by Selma and called “Red Bird”, it is a scrappy quilt with the popular red bird border.  A great winter handwork choice, it was $109.00 and now for two day while the supply last it can be yours for $65.40.

Next quilt is a favorite from our 2013 Christmas Collection it is called “Colin’s Grove”.  I am confident you will love this kit and the fabrics are from Jefferson County.  What a great winter into spring quilt.  It was $157.00 and for the weekend you can purchase this kit for only $94.20300.  I am not taking the time to put the sizes in as I will be no doubt here all night as it is you will have to check the shopping cart. 

“Jefferson Register” is the next quilt selection.  This is also made out of my Jefferson County fabric.  I  liked the pattern, it was an antique we reproduced.  The ori036ginal kit is priced at $146.00 but the Black Friday special brings the cost down to only $87.50. 

The next quilt kit was made out of my Orchard House fabric line.  It is the perfect quilt for a Prim decor.  Suzanne is the designer of this quilt.  This is a great kit for many reasons, we love to be able to utilize all the fabric so Suzanne has included “Daisy’s Doll Quilt” in with her “Meg’s Dowry” pattern you will get two quilts.  The cost was $123.00 but this weekend it can be yours for only $73.80.

My final kit offering is a smaller quilt kit Lavonne made up for us this fall.  It is called “Grandfather Mountain”.  The pattern is by Carol Hopkins.  The kit includes backing and007 binding and is 25″ x 43″.  This is a perfect gift to give your quilting friend and then get one for yourself so you can have a getaway weekend sewing together.

The kit was $48.50 and is marked down this weekend to only $29.10.  You will need to check online for a picture of this particular quilt as i can not located the model.

Summer Vacation Projects!

We are feeling the pressure of fall in the air and even though it is still July it won’t be after this week .  It is hard to believe it is getting to be that time.   I have noticed it is getting darker earlier as our day light is diminishing by two minutes every day.  That brings me to the fact we are about to start getting in a whole lot of new fabric so its time to give our valued customers some really great summer specials.  There are still a few weeks to get some summer sewing in.

Our beautiful Moda Basic Grey “Little Black Dress 2 has been such a wonderful line full of great neutral colors.  We have an abundance of JELLY ROLLS!  A jelly roll is a 2 1/2 inch strip and the roll is made up from the entire collection to equal 2 1/4 yards.  This normally sells for $40.00 we are having a special this week and offering the rolls to you until they are gone for only $28.00.

One of my very favorite quilts of all time was our Roadtrip quilt called “Abigail”s 4-Patch”.   The size is great as it measures 72″ x 72″  and the colors are good year round even at Christmas!  It has to be a good quilt when it works into the decor any time of the year. Classic and traditional always works.  Abigail was priced at $102142.00 and NOW it can be your special quilt for $99.00.   013

“The Angels Sing” is a quilt we introduced last year, the fabric we based it on was like old sheet music thus our name for the quilt.   We kept our palette  in soft neutral colors so it could work into most decors but look really great during the holiday season.  The pattern we used came out of the Spotlight on Neutrals book by Pat Wys which remains a very popular book.  This quilt measures out at 69″ x  92″ and looks tremendous on the bed.  It originally sold for $112.00 but can be yours for $78.00.  This is a classic log cabin pattern.  


“A Touch of Spring” is the name of this next pattern.  It is 38″ x 38″ and that my friends is a great size to work with020.  It’s not too small and things look quite beautiful sitting on it and that is because of the soft neutral colors Vickie chose .  I can see it with a basket of bittersweet and Indian corn in the fall and  fresh boughs o greens and berries at  Christmas time.  The cost was $52.00 but is now priced right at only $36.40.  I know you will love piecing this and the size is right to get finished just in time to enjoy using it on your own table or even as a gift. 

We have at least 4 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.
