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!!

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.


fabric-jelly-dotsWe love dots and we’re so glad that Moda decided to put together a jelly roll featuring lots and lots of them! These 2 1/2″ strips feature bright colors and dots in various sizes. We’re hoping they make these a standard in their fabric lineup ’cause they sure are cute.

Customer: Claudia – Quilters Palette

customer-claudia-qpClaudia Saunders was here with another quilt! This is from Annie Smith’s class Quilter’s Palette. This is an intermediate class where each week you learn a new technique.

Claudia did an AMAZING job not only with her beautiful color choices but also her technique. Some of these blocks are challenging and the quilt is flawless. She had it free motion quilted and we wish you could have been here to see it in person. Lovely! Thanks as always for sharing Claudia!
