Jennifer Rilea and her mom attended Selby’s Dust Bunnies class a couple of months ago, and here is her quilt, already completed! Thanks for sharing Jennifer, hope to see you soon!image2

Local Quilt Shop Day – Saturday, January 24

local-quilt-shop-daySaturday is Local Quilt Shop day. Why not come to San Juan Bautista and stop by the quilt shop.

If fabric alone isn’t enticing enough (we’re not sure how that’s possible) there are lots of yummy restaurants for lunch and if you take a stroll around town the lunch calories don’t count!

Mention you saw our Local Quilt Shop day blog or Facebook post and receive 15% off Saturday, January 24th’s fabric purchase!! Wahoo!!

Guild Class with Debbie Maddy

Today at the shop we had a full house!  The Pinnacle Quilt Guild used our classroom to host designer, teacher, founder of Calico Carriage Quilt Designs and 2013 Nominee for Teacher of the Year by the International Association of Quilting Professionals – Debbie Maddy.

Debbie gave demos and tips all along the way. And with her “no y-seams” technique everyone had a grand time.

Thanks to Debbie and to the Pinnacle Quilt Guild for a great day!

Dots, Stripes & Chevrons OH MY!

fabric-dots-bundlesA while ago we got in bolts upon bolts of huge Riley Blake dots. They are still available, along with fat quarter bundles that have every single color included. They have been one of our go-to basics for a couple of months now, so we decided we had better order the matching chevrons and stripes!

These stripes are 1″ wide. Can you believe it? I cannot wait to bind a quilt in one!

From the Garden

Most of us probably know of a lady with a green thumb, don’t we? Wouldn’t she love a quilt, apron, or bag from these vintage inspired prints? We love, love, love anything with words around here, and this baby blue, minty green, and buttery yellow are simply wonderful!

Ahoy Matey!

Ok, so we covered the bigger boys, but what about the littler ones in your life? Well, pirates are sure to be a hit! We have a couple of great smaller prints to spice up a quilt, or even to accent a simple pillow case!

One for the guys…

Who out there is trying to make a quilt for their husband, brother, father, or just any ole’ guy?

Well it’s not always easy. Here at the shop we love our flowers and polka dots, but that’s just us.

So we’ve done some searching and here are a couple new lines that those men are sure to love! Motorcycles and vintage sports – you can’t go wrong!
