New Little Boy Prints

We received Modas Lil' Rascal fabrics and have created a cute bundle of 8 fabrics. Here is a possible little boy quilt that could be made with these cute little dog prints. What do you think?

What to do with a layer cake.....

Last Christmas I purchased my first layer cake.  I loved it!  12 Days of Christmas by Kate Spain.  I chose to sew them together with a finished 3/4" sashing, creating a windowpane effect.  So easy, it sewed up very quickly and I didn't need a pattern.  I read somewhere that the more narrow the sashing, the easier it is for the eye to connect the blocks. The wider the sashing, the more separate the blocks appear, each standing on it's own.  I chose sashing to separate the fabrics to show them off,  but made it narrow to connect the blocks.

                 My niece, Leisha, did a wonderful job quilting it for me.

Have you seen Kate Spain's new Christmas fabric?  It is Flurry and it just hit the stores.  Again, a bight and cheery palette with a panel that reminds me of a cozy sweater  - with an fresh updated Swedish look.   

I know, your thinking,  "'s still June and I'm enjoying the flowers, green grass, and waiting for those seedlings to pop!"  .........choose a summer print layer cake like Strawberry's a quick project.

A new driver...

 My BABY passed her drivers test yesterday. Should I worry or not?

What to do.....

We have this new pattern by Thimble Blossoms in stock and the fabric collection Ruby associated with this pattern does not come out until October.  So, what to make it up in now?  Any ideas?  I am thinking about Strawberry Fields in the Red/Grey Collection.

I will keep you posted as to how it is coming.

Hi Sisters & Quilters.  We love checking the map in the bottom right hand corner to see where our visitors are from.  Check it is the coolest thing ever.  We have sent packages all over the world and if we could get all of our quilters/sewing friends to join or visit our blog....we can see the world light up!  We love this!
Check back from time to time and watch it grow. Next week we will begin with some quilt trunk shows and some fun sewing ideas.
Also, feel free to leave comments or offer suggestions.  We would love to hear from you!

Jardin Quilt Kit

We also offer the quilt kit in the Jardin version of the Kiss Me Quilt Pattern which uses a jelly roll of the Strawberry Fields Collection.

Welcome to our blog!

We are so excited to be able to share with you projects from all of our "sisters" in quilting.  We will share what is new in our shop and also links to our favorite shops, quilting items, designers, and most importantly - what fun projects our "sisters" in sewing and quilting are currently working on.  Thanks for visiting our blog.

Our newest quilt kit is "Kiss Me by Fig Tree Quilts" with fabrics by Moda from the Strawberry Fields Collection.  These fabrics are absolutely beautiful!  The colors are typical of Joanna Figueroa - bright, fresh, saturated colors of strawberry, vanilla, slate, grass, and pond.  I picked up my kit yesterday and I can't wait to get started.  Every quilter needs a red and white quilt.  This one is my favorite.  We are offering the kits - includes all of the fabrics for the top & binding and pattern.  You only need to choose your backing.
You can purchase your kit at this link:
