TWO ways to receive a FREE yard of fabric while quilting for Christmas!
Tell me; would you guess the quilt above is a Christmas quilt? I know, it's not the traditional red and green nor is it bedecked with traditional holiday garb but if you look very closely you will find some tiny hints of holly here and there. That might be what I love most about this quilt. It doesn't scream Christmas. Instead it reminds me of a warm, firelit hearth on a cold winter evening. For me, it evokes a feeling that comes with Christmas. It's a peaceful feeling I would welcome into my home year round - - just like I would this quilt. Every year I promise myself I will do my part to keep the Christmas spirit, the kindness, love, generosity and goodwill alive in the world around me. When the season of giving comes around again, inevitably I have to admit there is much room for improvement. Subtle reminders like this quilt and the hand stitching project by Bonnie Sullivan below (we have patterns!) might be just the thing to help keep the joy of Christmas close year round.
Karen Averett pieced this beauty using the Hollywoods collection by 3 Sisters of Moda in Miss Rosie's Blaze pattern. We have kits! Custom machine quilting by Ramona Sorensen accents all the details wonderfully! Speaking of machine quilting, we are currently offering a coupon for a free yard of fabric valued $11.99 or less with each quilt top you check in for quilting service before Wednesday, December 12th!It's not too late to request that your quilt be completed before Christmas so take advantage of this little extra and treat yourself to some free fabric!
Fat Eighths in bundles of FUN!
We have a new way of folding our fat eighths... they look just like our fat quarters except of course, they're half the size. They're so cute and itty-bitty (say it in your tiniest squeaky voice), they're A-DORABLE! Our fat-eighths are $1.49 each or 5 for $.99! We have coordinated a few fun bundles of 5 that would be a perfect size to tuck a gift card in for a quilting friend. Don't forget about our gift card special!

Who wouldn't love to find that under the tree?!
This Santa... THIS. SANTA! His scrappy, long hat. His skinny little legs. His hand-quilted beard. He's charming in Tilda's Bird Pond fabrics! Suzanne Adams had so much fun putting him together and can't wait to make more of the Tilda dolls. He's just one of several fabulous seasonal quilting projects in Tilda's Sewing by Heart by Tone Finnanger. What else will you find in this must-have pattern book? The Birds & Sunflowers quilt! Pieced by Marianne Michaels and machine quilted by Ramona Sorensen, this quilt is both classic and unique highlighting Tilda's norwegian flair. You can't help but smile when you see it. We have kits available at the shop!
