A New Block Of The Month On It's Way

WOW!  My friend Donna has been working on this sample for our new "Block of the Month" quilt that will be ready to go real soon.  It's really amazing!  The Pattern is called "Spring Bouquet" from Laundry Basket Quilts. The thing that makes this one soooooo cool is that all the applique pieces come lazer cut and already have the fusible web on them.  All you have to do is take the paper off the back,  place the pieces where you want them, and iron them down.  Donna has been sewing a little zigzag stitch around all the pieces to hold them down.  As you can see there is only two more borders to go.  I'm thinking it will be ready in time to put it on your Christmas list.  That way you can be working on beautiful flowers all winter long!

Pot Holders! A Great Hostes Gift

 It's That time of year.  Time to start making little things for all the people you love.  What could be handier than a hand made potholder?  EVERYONE could use a new one.  They take really just a few minutes to make, and they make a lovely gift to give to the cook at the next party you go to.  I have a fun time Just putting the kits together too.  This one is made with pumpkin fabric.  (Thanksgiving is coming!)  Some of the kits are made with some retro coffee fabric and even some beer fabric.  Hmmm....  Maybe Some Halloween?

New Kaffe Fabric Has Arrived

Just look at a few of the absolutely gorgeous, yummy fabric that came in this week.  The fabrics from Kaffe Fasset have become one of my favorites!  Some of each of the new bolts has followed me home.  My stash has really gotten a little out of control.  But, I can't help it!  Since I started using it for the "Kim McLean" Patterns. I look at it with a whole new eye.  There are so many possibilities.  I can cut out a bird here, a flower there..........  
This is an old "Kaffe" Fabric with new colors.  I brought in all three color ways.  LOVE IT!!!  The other thing I love about this line is the fact that you really can't go wrong.  It all goes together.  You will have to stay tuned for some projects using this fabric.  OH!  And if you can't stop by the shop for some.  Go to my on line store and I will mail it to you.  Remember,  No shipping over $30.  It will be there before you know it!
