Birthday discounts

We will be offering birthday discounts to our customers.  If you can provide valid driver's license showing us it is your birthday, we will give you 10% off of your purchase.  This discount will apply to fabric, patterns and notions we have in stock.  This offer will be good 14 days prior to or 14 days following your birthday ;o)  Sweet!

We now have the Just In Nine patterns in stock.  This quilt is so cute and versatile.  It uses 9 fat quarters for the top along with 3/4 yard for a border.  I have seen it made up in several different fabrics and am amazed how it always looks so different.  Love it!

Gift Certificates

Need a birthday, anniversary, holiday or just because gift and don't know what to get that special person -- well, look no further --we are now offering gift certificates.  The certificates can be used towards notions, fabric, patterns, classes or long arm quilting.  Neat huh?  We think so!

New this week in our shop are the 17" rotating mats, they are awesome.  Also, if sewing isn't your thing but you like to stitch, we have some stitchery patterns you will love.  Great way to pass the time at summer lessons waiting on the kiddos.  Check these out!  We also have some cute little dish towels to embroidery on if that's your thing .... and for patterns we have a cute farm living pattern!

Witches Hooray Table Runner
Scarecrow in Wheelbarrow

Santa Quartet
Don't let the fact that the pictures show some of these stitcheries as table runners stop you, they would be equally cute as a pillow or framed!  Check back soon -- more is on the way.  Don't forget we are also offering a couple more jelly roll demonstrations.  We will have dates for those soon.
We would also like to thank you for all of your support.  There has been lots of positive feedback and we want each customer to feel like you are getting proper service. 
We will be open July 4th, 5th and 6th from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. if you would like to stop by!  Hope to see you soon.

Happy sewing!

We have new additions!

Olie and I had an absolute blast at our jelly roll demonstration last night with some very wonderful and fun ladies.  Olie did a wonderful job on her demonstration which she kept reminding me was very out of her comfort zone.  She did so good I am sure she will have no problem doing LOTS more.  She also demonstrated our new Olfa cutting mat which the ladies LOVED!   We had several requests for the mat in a 17" size and have ordered some of those and they will be in stock soon.  The ladies got a sneak peek of some projects in the work for our demonstration on July 16th -- more details soon!

Christmas packages arrived again this week (okay so it's like Christmas to us opening the boxes to reveal what's inside)!  We received our charm packs in Baby Jane.  This would make an absolutely adorable baby quilt. The colors are aqua, red, grey, mustard and creamy white. We also have jelly rolls on order as well as some yardage for backs and binding. 

Boy Crazy arrived as well and we have fat quarter bundles which would be perfect for our Chevy Daze pattern!  Lots of yardage in this one for some other fun projects as well ... pajamas, pillowcases, baby quilts ... you name it.  Love the prints and colors in teal, orange, yellow, gray (I keep oooiiing and aaawwing over the diamonds).

We now have Gift Certificates that you can purchase from us to give for any reason under the sun you can find!  Let us know if you are interested.  And, for those of you who don't quilt but might like to do some handwork, or if you do both, we have something new coming in the very near future so check back ;o)

That's it for this week -- I will be sequestering myself in the room with my long arm quilting machine this weekend -- except for the very fun time I get to spend with my grandkids (yeah) -- I wonder what trouble we can stir up!

Happy first day of summer (I'm wearing a fleece jacket) ;o(

Breaking News!

Olie and I got our first LARGE shipment of fabric in this week.  At least it was large for us and we have been like excited little school girls ever since. We worked very hard one night this week playing fabric store.  This is what we came up with! 

Wildflowers Stacks and Squares

Nested Owls - Coral

Wildflowers/Nested Owls - Charcoal
 A bookshelf converted into a display case holding the new fabrics from Adorn It, "Nested Owls Coral" and "Wildflowers."  This fabric could be made into soooo many projects.  We will be bundling up some quilt kits and fat quarter bundles from this line.  We also have 5 x 5 and 10 x 10 stacker squares.  A pattern book for these darling fabrics should be arriving soon!  These items will be on out etsy site and if you would like to come by and visit us in person let us know!  We don't have regular hours yet but hope too soon.

The doll cradle is now holding baby quilts for purchase ---- just had to share it's so sweet.

And the front entry has a place to display patterns, notions and more precuts! 

Just a reminder our jelly roll demonstration is June 20th at 7:00 (3472 East 400 North, Lewisville, Idaho).  Have a great Flag Day and Father's Day Weekend.

More class quilts

I just finished up a couple more class quilts and, of course, I had to share some photos.  Shannon completed her Scrappy Trip Quilt, it measured 60 x 60 (5 blocks across and 5 down).  I quilted it with an all over fan pattern -- it was hard not to hide it and keep it for myself!

Shannon chose a very soft flannel for the back of her quilt. ;o)
  I only have 9 more blocks to finish sewing until I complete my blocks and I can start assembling mine.  I had better get busy!

Lori finished her Melly quilt and wow what a great job she did on her piecing!  She used "Wee Woodland" by Keiki for Moda as her fabric choice.  It's darling and she should enjoy it for many years to come. 

I used an allover design with flowers, leaves and swirls to pull the components of the fabric together.

I am very impressed with these ladies and their piecing skills -- you are doing great.  Thank you for allowing me to quilt for you!

Rotating Olfa Mat

Olie and I just had to share this fun new notion we just got in our shop -- it's a rotating olfa mat!  It is sooooo fun and cool, and makes cutting blocks so much easier (technology -- who would have thought?!)  The mats we currently have in stock are 12 x 12 so they are perfect for a block that is 12 inches or smaller.  Gone are the days of having to pick up your block and turn to trim or cut, you just turn the mat instead.  The 12 x 12 mats are $42.00.  We love them so much we just ordered some more -- so let us know if you would like one.  They also come in a larger size if you are interested! 

Nothing like a new sewing gadget to make ya smile ;o)

Jelly Roll Demonstration

Ladies (and Gents) so as not to discriminate ....

The Jelly Roll demonstration will be held on Thursday, June 20th, at my home in Lewisville. If you need directions or have questions, please contact me at, or call or text me at 801-828-8928.  The demonstration will start at 7:00 p.m. and I don't anticipate it will run more than 1 hour. This is a fun, quick and easy way to make a project with 2 1/2" strips (jelly roll).  Olie and I will demonstrate a couple of different layouts. 

Olie has her sample made up (she made a table runner) and here are a couple of photos.  I don't really think the photos do it justice ;o)

... so remember fun, quick, and easy and stop by my house on the 20th at 7:00 p.m.!!! 

Until then ... keep on sewing!!
