Sharing Day...for the lil Gentleman

Look how cute!  I love this tie. We love to see your projects!   It was made by Michelle of  the little gentlemen's closet  with the Ann Kelle Airplane Fabric. Here is a link to her Etsy shop where she sells theses adorable ties.     So fun.  You need to visit her shop see the darling bow ties.  I think one of my favorites is the guitar tie.  Thanks for sharing Michelle.

Free Quilt Patterns.....

I know that many of you are familiar with Moda Bake Shop patterns.....but did you know that Riley Blake also has free patterns?  They usually create a free pattern with each of their  fabric collections. And if you visit their blog, you can see these quilts finished.  We love the Alphabet Soup Collections by Zoe Pearn for My Minds Eye.  They have a really sweet free quilt pattern and below is the sample from Riley Blake's blog:

Riley Blake has produced a girls and a boys collection.  You can find these free patterns (and others) at this link:
We have several precuts in stock of this fabric collection.  It really is cute!  

Or Create your own.  And if you do, send us a picture and we will be happy to feature it on our blog.  We love new ideas!

Summer.....hmmmmmmm....let's talk Popsicle!


We have another new collection of fabrics in.  Hooray! Whimsey Collection by Heather Mulder Peterson for Henry Glass.  What do they remind you of?  I am thinking orange-sicles and sherbet.

Speaking of which, Leisha, our in-house quilter, designed a darling quilt using a half-square triangle.  How many different designs can you use with a half-square triangle?  Somewhere in the 10's?  Hundreds? That can be one of our next blogs.  :)  

Her collection of fabrics in this quilt include;  Summer Song, Wheels Plaid, Houndstooth, and Simply Sweet.  Again, soft Minky on the back.  We love this refreshing baby quilt Leisha!  Thanks for sharing your ideas!

  Hmmmm.  I am off to the freezer.  I'm craving a fruitsicle (juice pop)!

Sharing Day.....Aaaarg Ahoy thar matey!

Another fun quilt!  This quilt reminds me of the Simple Sadie Quilts where you feature the main print and add coordinates for the border - sometimes you just don't want to cut up the wonderful designs.  This quitl can be made with a charm pack or 5" squares around the focus fabric.  Shown below are the pictures in the quilting process before binding. We love the black Minky Dot for the backing.  Click on the pictures for a larger view.  

 So So fun.  The quilt was made by LaReen Zollinger for her friend's son, and machine quilted by Leisha Farnsworth. Aye! Beautiful work ladies! Thank you so much for sharing it with us!

Pirates by Emily Taylor are in!  We love these pirate fabrics.  Whether your making a quilt for your little pirate or a Halloween will love these fabrics.  We purchased extra Pirates Phrases  and Skulls n Crossbones for those little Trick-or-Treaters.  

     We also have the complete collection in a fat quarter bundle!

Monkeys..Dinosaurs...Turtles...Whales...Birds...Butterflies...Owls...and Flowers!

Ann Kelle's New Urban Zoologies are here!  Just what you asked for - more boys prints. 

 And there are some darling prints for girls too.

These are only a few of the prints.  More colors and designs are in our shop.  1/2 yard and 1 yard cuts are available for purchase for those baby projects.  We are busy creating fun fat quarter bundles and half yard bundles.  Just convo us to create your own bundle!


 Finally, we have some cherries. 3 years in a row now (you would think I would learn my lesson) we have had Robins nesting in our cherry tree.  This year there were three baby birds and I didn't dare stream foil until they flew the nest.  Last year, the birds ate all but about 3 cherries - this year we got lucky.  An entire colander full for us!
The nest is quite large and very sturdy.  Mrs you want this for your 4th grade class?  All yours.
