What is your favorite part of quilting? Picking out some scrumptious fabric? The excitement of just getting started? Creating with the great fabrics and seeing it come to life? Finishing? I gotta say, I still get quite excited about finding some great fabrics that I think are going to be great and getting started. but I love the whole process really alot. I am starting one of my favorite kind of patterns, (Buggy Barn! out of their new book "Crazy fun and Games") It's called, Crazy Eights. As I was picking out the fabrics for it I just knew it was going to be stupendous, so I cut enough for several kits as well. I was sewing well into the night last night. (My Saturday nights sure have changed over the years!) I was having so much fun seeing the combination of colors come together, I couldn't stop. So stay tuned for the finished quilt. I don't think it will take very long. I hope you all get lost in your quilting as much as I do.

In case you haven't heard, My good friend Pat Little who has taken such great care of the flower baskets on the way into Aunt Mary's. Has moved to Arizona. I miss her VERY MUCH. She has taken care of me and the shop on my days off for many years. I'm not sure how I'll survive! But the baskets out side at this time are looking great! Hopefully I can do ok with this job. I will give it a go. But I will really miss her! I hope only good things for her. HAPPY TRAILS, PAT!!!

New Fabric just for guys!!! It's always hard to find fabric for men. This line is full of all the things they love Tools, Beer, Cars.......... I think it would make a great quilt. Or maybe you could make a table runner for the garage? A Work Bench Runner?

Isn't this little guy sweet! I had yesterday afternoon 0ff. So I spent a little time making this cute critter. It uses old zippers (Or new) You could put little notes in his mouth. (Or secret things), and best of all he's very easy! He just uses scrapes and imagination. He would make a great project for a rainy Saturday afternoon.

The teachers are dropping of class samples for all the fun classes that are coming up this fall. I think there will be some great classes. I'm excited!! There are some techniques that we have not really covered. Like CRAZY QUILTING. Suz Litzsinger will have a two part class that will show the construction of the block and then how to do all the embellishments. We also have some fun projects to help you out with your holiday list. If you haven't gotten the class schedule either stop by the shop or just go to the web site and click on classes. I know there will be something just for you. OH! and don't forget on Friday, September 11th from 5 - 7 we have Meet the teacher. Most of the teachers will be here to answer any questions and get you signed up. If you sign up at this time you will get a coupon for 15% off your supplies for the class. Hope to see you!
