Congratulations to Pam Stewart for getting the most votes for her Notes of Autumn quilt and Diane Mezerker for getting the second most votes for her Sunflower quilt. Pam will receive a $50 gift certificate and Diane will receive one for $25.

Winner Diane Mezerker

Sunflower – Diane Mezerker

Thank you so very much to everyone who participated in the challenge. All of you did an exquisite job on your quilts and we can’t thank you enough.

The quilts will be in the shop until Saturday and then it’s off to the San Benito County Fair!

The quilts are hung – it’s time to come in and vote!


All of the challenge quilts have been hung at the shop. It’s so hard to believe they all started with the same bundles of fabric. They are all so wonderful – thank you to all of our quilt makers for joining in, we really do appreciate your hard work.

Now it’s up to all of you to choose your favorite! Come into the shop between September 15 – 20 and cast your vote – one per person please. As an incentive we’ll give you 15% off of any fabric you have cut off the bolt that day.



Los Banos Quilt show 2014

los-banos-2014The Los Banos quilt show was last weekend and Cindy said it was swell. She showed lots of great stuff from the shop – including a demo using the double strip ruler (which is currently on reorder).

We hope at least a few of you were able to make it over there to see all the wonderful quilts on display.

Thanks again Cindy for all your hard work!!

Challenge Quilts – Due TODAY!

quilt-challengeFor all those who are finishing up their challenge quilts, they are due at the shop today by 4pm. We’ve already gotten some really wonderful quilts! Here at the shop we just love it when some unveils what they’ve done – it’s like Christmas only in September!

Remember to stop by the shop anytime this coming week – September 15 to 20 to vote for your favorite!

The winners will be announced on Monday, September 22.

Trick or treat

fabric-halloweenWell before you know it October will be here – and you know what that means – Halloween! We’ve gotten in a wonderful panel and some great companion fabrics – including a polka dot spider (Holly isn’t screaming and asking Selby to squish them, so it must be ok).

Row by Row WINNER

nancy-winner-2014Wahoo! We have our Row by Row winner!

Nancy Wilcox

She came into the shop this week and showed us her wonderful quilt. AND she used our row – yeah!

She said she collected her rows but wanted to do a bit more applique, so some of them that were pieced she actually appliqued. Also, to make things more cohesive she added a little bumble bee to each row. We thought that was such a cute idea.

Congratulations Nancy!!! Thanks so much for sharing your quilt – it was just wonderful.
