After much promising and lots of questions -- we are ready to make our big announcement!  In responding to your questions here we go -- NO I am not getting married -- nor are either of our single children getting married -- in other words no new additions to either of our families!!! 

However, we are changing the prices at our shop -- life changing you say?  Well, yes it is.  We know that quilting is, how shall we put it (clear throat) -- a rather expensive hobby.  We are not increasing our prices, but rather LOWERING them even more.  We can't list each individual price here, but we can give you an idea of the new pricing structure. 

Yardage (Moda, Riley Blake, Adorn It and Henry Glass) -- $8.50 per yard
Moda and Adorn It layer cakes and jelly rolls  -- $32.25 each
Moda and Adorn It charm packs -- $7.85 each
Moda Mini charms - $3.30 each
Moda and Adorn It fat quarter and fat eighth bundles have also been reduced.
Individual fat quarters - $2.15 each
Moda Bella solids are priced at $6.50 per yard
Riley Blake charms, jelly rolls, and layer cakes range from $5.95 to $17.25
Patterns and notions are also reduced

Since opening our shop this year we have tried to offer many different sales or discounts.  As costs of cotton have increased significantly over the past few years, we hope that you would rather save money every day on your quilting purchases than have to wait for a special sale or savings event to purchase something you would like.  Sew ... there you go!  If you have not been to our shop -- come by.  You can also find us online at or on Etsy. 

We currently carry Moda, Riley Blake and Adorn It fabric in our shop.  We have lots of new precuts in ... Grant Park, Chance of Flowers, Winter Wonderland, Token of Friendship, April Showers ... and more on the way.  In addition, we recently added some flannel that would be darling for receiving blankets, backs of quilts or other projects.  For those of you that like to do stitchery/embroidery we also have muslin. 

We recently ordered yardage from Henry Glass and it should be arriving any day!!! 

We are adding additional classes and demonstrations for the beginning, confident beginner and intermediate quilters and will keep you posted of dates and times!  

We cant say it enough -- thank you for all of your support and patronage this past year.  We are certainly looking forward to a wonderful 2014 and hope yours is happy and prosperous!

Quilt Therapy - Postage Stamp Quilt

Can you believe it?  Our quarterly quilt therapy day is almost here!  We will be making a postage stamp quilt this time around and they are so much fun.  I love how each one has its own individual look.  Let us know as soon possible if you plan to participate.  The cost is $5.00 which goes towards  renting the Lewisville Community Center. 

All you need to do is stop by the shop and pick up your jelly roll and background fabric.  Bring your own machine, sewing supplies and something to share for our pot luck luncheon.  If you haven't been to one of our quilt therapy days before, it's a fun time.  You will get lots of instruction and individual assistance as you need it and you can sew to your heart's content! 

Date:  January 11, 2014
Demonstration time:  10:00 a.m.
Place:  Lewisville Community Center

Here are a few photos to help you get a little more excited!!!  Invite your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers -- anyone who can sew a straight seam.  It will help with the cold January winter blues I PROMISE!!!!  That's why we call it our Quilt Therapy :o)

We have lots of jelly rolls in the shop right now -- French General, Sandy Gervais, Kate Spain, Kansas Troubles, Minick & Simpson, Eric & Julie Comstock and even our Rolie Polies from Riley Blake would work great in making a baby or toddler quilt!  Call or e-mail and let us know if we should add your name to the list!

We are not planning on bringing a lot of inventory on the day of the class so PLEASE stop by before and pick up your supplies.  If you have a jelly roll you want to use already, that's fine too!  See you on the 11th!!

Ready or not -- Christmas is almost here!  The "must have by Christmas" quilts for customers are finished and out the door, now we are taking time to breathe and have a little down time with family and friends before gearing up for the new year!!  Remember -- we still have a very important announcement to make, watch for more details coming soon, but right now we are ready to spend some time with our wonderful children and adorable grandchildren!! 

Our holiday hours at the shop are as follows: 
Closed Wednesday, December 25th
Thursday, December 26th from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. 
New Years Day from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Thursday, January 2nd from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. 
Saturday, January 4th from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
... and then classes begin!

I was able to complete a personal holiday quilt this season and I love it.  The fabric is from Sweetwater's Countdown to Christmas line, which is long gone -- I quilted it with an allover hollyberry panto.  It snowed in Idaho on Saturday and was a perfect setting for an outdoor picture.

Olie and I had talked about someday having a little shop of our own.  It has been less than a year since we held our first Beginning Quilting Class and we have had so much fun and are enjoying this journey.  Thank you for your support and patronage, we couldn't do it without you! 
We sincerely wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  May it be filled with Peace, Love, Hope and Joy.

Last month of the year....

.. it can't possibly be December already!!!  I know Thanksgiving was last week, I quilted .... and I'm still quilting .... and probably will be quilting until Christmas Eve!!!  I go to work, come home and quilt or maybe sit and bind, my house is a mess, barely keeping up on the laundry, no Christmas decorations up ... and my fingers are sore ... but I am loving it!  Every time someone picks up a quilt and are happy with it I get all warm and fuzzy inside.  I want to share pictures, but they are gifts that my customers have worked hard on and I can't ruin their surprises.  We are working hard, I am giving Olie a new nickname -- "The Mug Rug Queen"!  She is making the cutest mug rugs and they seem to sale just as fast as she gets them done.

We have not completed class calendars for next year, but do have the following confirmed:

January 7th - our next beginning quilting class starts.  This class will be held in Idaho Falls.  If you are from Jefferson County area and are still interested in taking this class, please contact me.  It is possible another one will be taught at the shop on a Thursday evening or Saturday morning. 

January 11th - Quilt Therapy Day.  We are getting lots of inquiries about this demonstration.  It requires a jelly roll and background fabric.  The cost is $5.00 and if you want to participate, please sign up now.  What a fun way to spend a winter day, with good friends and good food.  We can hardly wait!!! 

January 28th - Olie & Evie will be demonstrating at the Shelley Library Quilt Show at 5:30 p.m.   We have a new ruler to demonstrate using 2 1/2" and 1 1/2" strips, and will again be demonstrating the spectacular method for jelly rolls that looks like you spent hours piecing.  Also, we will have some samples to show you some different finishing methods.

We also have some great news to ring in the year 2014 -- life changing news -- both for us and our wonderful customers ... so, stay tuned because December will be gone before you know it. 
... I am going back to my quilting machine now! ;o)

More scrappy trip quilts

I don't think I will ever get tired of seeing scrappy trip quilts (either sewing on one or quilting one for a customer).  Each one is unique in its own way.  I just finished quilting two of them for customers this week.  
Kathy wanted hers quilted with straight lines both vertically and horizontally. 
Mission accomplished! 

The piano key border Kathy added to her quilt is adorable.

She used the small leaf yardage by Adorn It for her back.
The lines looked really neat and added texture. 
Louise let me have free reign to the quilting on hers so I chose
an orange peel design.  Love it!
It amazes me what quilting can add to these quilts.  Louise also used a backing
fabric the Chamberry line by Adorn It.
As a reminder, if you have not made one of these yet and would like to do so,
we have lots and lots of fabric strips already cut and ready to sew together. 
The cost is $2.00 per set and a finished block is 12".  Come by the shop and we will be happy to show you this technique!
On another note -- are you Idaho readers loving the snow??  It's coat and glove season now, but I would prefer to stay inside wrapped in a quilt.

You can't wrap a baby in an iPad

Okay readers, I recently ran across this article written by Mary Fons and it as a MUST SHARE for me.  It explains quilting and just some of the many reasons that I love this craft.  It makes me happy -- I work in a world 5 days a week where people cannot get along -- so they hire lawyers to help them work out their differences.  The people who come to our shop and classes are there because they want to be, we make new friends, we bond, we share lives and stories and our quilts touch all those who receive such a special handmade gift with so much thought, time and effort put into them. 

So to my friends who have received a gift because of a loss of a family member, a new birth, a new marriage, to sons who have quilts to be reminded of home and that I love them, to people I have donated quilts to help with a fundraiser, or someone suffering from an illness such as cancer .... this story is for you.  I am sure it will touch your heart as much as it did mine.

You can't wrap a baby in an iPad

Unless I’m at a cocktail party hosted by quilters, I am usually the only quilter at a cocktail party.
When I talk about what I do for work, someone will invariably say, “Sorry — did you say you’re a…quilter?” I nod and say yes and then two things happen: first, the person cocks their head and goes “Huh!” and then, “My auntie used to knit, too.” Sometimes I gently explain the difference between quilting and knitting, sometimes I just ask about the auntie.

If you’re not a quilter, you probably don’t think about quilts very often. You know what they are. You maybe had one in your house as a kid. You don’t know that we take umbrage when you to refer to a quilt as a blanket (please!) and you have no idea that the business of quilting kicks up $3.6 billion dollars annually — that’s just in the States. But that’s all perfectly okay. I don’t know about programming in Ruby, nothing about the Blue-Footed Booby (okay, that rhymed), or how to fix the sink. We all have our work and stuff we geek out on. Quilts, for me, are both. I traffic in them; you don’t.

But then…
Then a quilt comes into your field of vision and I can tell you exactly when it happens: when there’s a baby coming. When there’s a marriage. When someone is real, real sick. Unlike the Blue-Footed Booby, quilts arrive when they are needed and what I insist upon, what I know is true, what I make sure to say at any cocktail party, be-quilted or otherwise, is that quilts are still needed, still relevant by virtue of what they are. Quilts are love, manifested. Put another way:

You can’t wrap a baby in an iPad.
Technology is galloping away with us all and I’m riding bareback with all my quilter friends who, you could argue, are more digitally connected than other hobbyists — we have pictures of quilts to share, online bees; the entire Modern Quilt Guild “movement” was born online. But all the binary code on the planet can’t comfort a baby like wrapping it up in a quilt. Another example? Give a newlywed couple a handmade quilt and watch death rays emit from the eyes of everyone else at the shower — the crystal fruit bowl from Tiffany’s and the Kitchen-Aid mixer might as well be crap from the Dollar Store. You can’t beat a quilt with a stick. They’re magic. They’re irreplaceable. They’re also positively American, at least when we speak specifically of patchwork quilts (as opposed to whole cloth or fancy boutis stuff from Europe, and they can keep all that.)

Hey, I want my own MakerBot. My smartphone, myself.  In the Venn diagram of “Nerdy,” “Creative,” and “Friendly,” “Quilter” is smack in the middle. Besides, we like buttons and stuff. But what gadget — and while we’re at it, what work of art — can you wrap up in, sit on, barf on, wash, cry under, make a tent out of, mop up stuff with, hug, throw, wad, rip, repair, and then give as an heirloom? I’d guess there’s probably just one answer to that question.

And so we still make quilts. We still do. And we will for a long time because try as we might to wriggle out of it, we’re still human. Humans need comfort and joy and to me and my fellow grieving, joyous, aging, newborn, and just plain chilly humans, a quilt is just the thing.

 I hope that if you do not quilt, that you can appreciate what they mean to those of us who do  It truly is a labor of love that goes into each stitch ...

We are doing a Happy Dance!

Olie has been working like crazy and we have great news to share -- we now have our own website!  That means you can see what we have new (and old) and order online.  We are excited and happy as we are growing bit by bit -- thanks to our wonderful customers.  You can find us at ;o)  We will be phasing out our Etsy shop little by little.  We still have a few more new products to add but will have them added in no time. 

We are continually getting new products in, we just added yardage with the fabric lines Sidewalks by October Afternoon, Midwinter Reds by Minick & Simpson, Honeysweet by Fig Tree, Sunnyside by Kate Spain and Giggles by Me & My Sister Designs.  We are starting to split at the seams and are loving it! 

Midwinter Reds by Minick & Simpson
Precuts also available

Sunnyside by Kate Spain

Honeysweet by Fig Tree

Sidewalks by October Afternoon

We will also be adding a couple of new quilt kits and some fat quarter bundles in the next few days so stay tuned for more information...

Happy Sewing,

Our Little Shop!

We don't even know where to begin to thank everyone who helped make our open house a success! It is a long list, but thanks Jasmine, Janeale, Julie, Debbie, Barbara, Trevor and Austin.  We had help with sewing, baking, hanging vinyl and wire, collecting chairs and even some cleaning.  You are all appreciated so very much! 

We are filling up and converted the laundry/back porch into use for displays and it will be storing some fabric soon as well.  We hung a bed frame to use to hang quilts from and added some vinyl lettering to the wall -- it's a welcoming view when you walk in the entrance ;o)

Shelves, dressers, crates, ladders, doors, and baskets line the walls with fabric, precuts and quilts! 

Antique Recreation (love her stuff) converted an old dresser into storage for precuts, quilts and bolts of fabric.  Olie made the darling banner that is on one of the walls -- love it!!  It just speaks HAPPY!

We have displays for upcoming classes and demonstrations.  This block was made using a Quick Curve Ruler -- hope to have this quilt completed and a couple more sample blocks made up prior to the demonstration in November.  I cannot even begin to explain how much fun this is to do curves -- no trimming required!!!  Easy peazy ...

Quick Curve Ruler Demonstration
to be held in November

And here is the pillowcase we will be sewing at the Pre-Teen class.  The class is almost full so get signed up now.  The students get to pick their own fabric for their pillowcase from the shop and it promises to be informative and fun! 


These are just a few pics from the shop -- there is lots more to see and enjoy, so stop by soon.  Our hours are Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.  We are located a 3472 East 400 North in Lewisville, Idaho between the Lewisville Highway and Highway 48.  And if the photos aren't enough to entice you to stop by -- look for our coupon in The Jefferson Star ;o) (good for now through October 20th)


String Quilt Completed

At our last Quilt Therapy Day I demonstrated a couple of methods for making string quilts.  It is so much easier than it looks and promises beautiful results.  I finished the center and inside border and turned it over to my mom to finish the scrappy inner border and outside border so I could get the top finished before our open house.  It was beautiful!  I loaded it on the quilting machine, worked until 4:00 a.m. (yes you heard me -- I just couldn't stop) and had it completed in time.  I LOVE this quilt and plan on starting another one very soon.  

String Quilt using lots and lots of scraps . . .
It's my fav!
I used a solid piece of fabric for the backing as the front was busy enough.  I am so pleased with how the quilting turned out ... I freehanded it all!

And if you want to try one ... we have scrap bags for sale to get you started.  Come by and take a look at it personally.  It did sell at the Open House but it will be displayed for a while longer!

The latest craze!

I try and read several quilter's blogs so I can follow what is going on in the quilting world.  They inspire me, teach me new things and help me reach outside of the box myself as we all get stuck in a rut sometimes of not feeling creative enough! 

I noticed this week that the latest craze is called "Jelly Roll Jam" which is a pattern put out by Fat Quarter Shop -- and it's free!  We will have some copies available at our open house on Saturday ;o)  We have many of the fabrics pictured below in our shop -- or similar designs.  Or, reach outside of your box and use something you love!  A Moda jelly roll will make 2 baby quilts ... which means a Riley Blake rolie polie would make 1 baby quilt -- my head is spinning with the ideas! 

Photo taken from diary of a quilter
Fabric - Baby Jane

Photo taken from a quilting life
Fabric - Giggles

 We may even have one of our own made up for our Open House on Saturday -- hmmm, 4 more days and counting -- what about a cute table topper from Kate Spain's In From the Cold or Posh Pumpkin for the upcoming holidays? Camp A Lot, Gracie Girl or Too Cute to Spook?  Oh my goodness!!!  BRAIN PLEASE STOP THINKING AND FOCUS -- WOULD YOGA HELP?

Tell you what -- come on Saturday and see if there is a surprise made out of this pattern in our shop!!!

Jelly Roll Quilts

Recently Olie taught a demonstrating on a quick method for sewing jelly rolls.  The results are amazing and it looks like you spent hours (or months and years) putting the blocks together.  I have had the opportunity to quilt a few of these and wanted to share some photos. Rather than do overall quilting I wanted to "define" the blocks so I tried to do something unique in each one.  The Posh Pumpkin by Moda had a double square so I did a different design in each one -- the customer said it reminded her of turkey feathers so for being a fall quilt that works ....
Posh Pumpkin (front)

Posh Pumpkin (back)
I got to piece this one together -- we all know how much I love a pieced back!

This runner was made from Avignon by Riley Blake.  I did something very similar but it had a totally different look with the fabric, I spiraled the center to make the feathered wreath look like more of a flower and can I just say I am in love with how the back looks now that it's finished!

Avignon (front)

Avignon (back)
I absolutely love how the design looks on the solid fabric and it created so much texture

Too Cute to Spook (front)
Notice the funky designs

Too Cute To Spook (back)

Too Cute To Spook by Riley Blake needed something funky on it, I quilted spider webs, lines and zig zags and Olie loved it.  She sewed this one up to use for a shop sample.  When I asked her if she wanted to sell it she was quick to respond "NO"!  Sorry ladies she will be keeping it and you will have to make one of your own -- and yes in case you are wondering we do sell some of our samples ;o) 

We still have some of these jelly rolls available in our shop if you would like, and many more, if you would like to give this method a try.  Who doesn't want a new table runner/topper or even a bed runner made from something fun?  Halloween is around the corner and I can feel fall in the air -- thinking I should be doing some decorating!

Happy Sewing ...

Scrumptious and Pot Luck

So excited to announce the arrival of  Scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille and Pot Luck by American Jane. Bonnie and Camille's fabric lines are so beautiful.  This particular line has gorgeous aqua, orange, green, red and pink.  Their fabrics always please and since they are local to us Idaho folk it is even more exciting! 

You can see why it's called Scrumptious!

American Jane is an all time favorite as well.  I think I am particular fond of them because they often have little farm prints or flowers that remind me of growing up.  We are so fast paced and technological today, they remind me of simpler times. 

Daisies, baby chicks and numbers -- so reminds me of being a little girl on the farm again!
The arrival of new precuts from Moda means the yardage won't be far behind.  Our shop is getting more and more colorful each time the UPS truck arrives -- we love that man -- can't talk him into sewing with us though ;o) but we'll keep trying!

Camp A Lot

For most people summer is over and camping has ended, but Riley Bake just released their new line of Fabric "Camp A Lot" by Bo Bunny Designs and we have precuts available in 10" squares and 2 1/2" Rolie Polies, as well as yardage.  Colors are brown, green, yellow and creams with designs of camp tracks, fireflies, cut wood, and of course the overall print which is my favorite! 

Camp Green Print - Adorable!

Chocolate Chevron - what a great companion piece!

Makes me want to go camping myself!  Well, on second thought maybe I will just make something out of it ;o)

Strings .... and more

We're back ... my genius son looked at the blog, hit a button and I'm back in business.  I am so computer illiterate it's not funny.  But I can sew ... which brings me to my September post.  We have so many exciting things going on in September!!!!  September 7th (which is less than a week away now is our QUILT THERAPY DAY.  These projects are so fun and turn out amazing.  All you need to be able to do is sew a straight line!!!  Come learn stash management skills that will seriously change your life.  I wish I would have learned this method years ago -- I would have sooo much more room in my house and wouldn't have had to spend hundreds of dollars on bins to store scraps. Well maybe I am exaggerating a bit but seriously this is so cool.  I will be demonstrating two different methods and I love them both.  And for a little sneak peek and something to tempt you with ....

Spider Web String Quilt
I am feeling the "crunch" to get this one completed.
Diamond/Squares String Quilt
Completed, quilted and even bound!

Contact us via e-mail at, comment here, or call or text me at 801-828-8928 if you want to join us or have any questions about this fun filled day!

Saturday, September 21st is our open house.  Olie and I have been working on our demonstration projects and you will love them.  We will have DRAWINGS, DISCOUNTS, AND TREATS. 
We have made lots of samples from the fabrics we have in the shop, and we have lots of patterns and ideas to share with you -- not to mention there are lots of new fabrics arriving this month.  We have a really fun little shop and hope you stop by to see it. 

Wednesday, September 25th is the start of a new beginning quilting class.  The last one was so fun we can't wait to have our second one. We will be teaching two projects, one is a quick and easy table runner and the other is a lap quilt.  You will be able to complete BOTH projects in this class (with a little homework that is).    

And Friday, September 27th is our Friday Frenzy.  Ladies, this gives you so many opportunities to learn and to complete projects which is what we are here for.  We aren't just in the business of selling fabric to you; we want you to feel comfortable with what you are sewing and know that we will answer any questions and offer assistance to help you complete you goals. 

Please join us and spread the word . . . thank you.  Happy Sewing!
