Santa's Coming... Quilts for Christmas have already arrived!
Dare I say it aloud? I know it's crossed your mind and as quilters, the time to get ready has come; so say it with me now, Santa's coming. Some of you may already be hanging the lights and trimming the tree while others are in denial (I fall somewhere in between) but with snow officially capping the Wasatch, we must face the facts. It's time to quilt for Christmas. Holiday fabric is here and we have three new Christmas projects on display! If you're wondering about getting a quilt in the queue to be finished for Christmas giving, jot down these dates:
For guaranteed Christmas delivery, we must have your quilt top and backing ready for quilting at the shop no later than December 7th for E2E computerized quilting by Dorene Cole and no later than November 22nd for custom quilting by Ramona Sorensen. Quilts checked in after these dates cannot be guaranteed by Christmas but may be evaluated case by case. Please don't hesitate to call us with any questions about our machine quilting services. We look forward to helping you finish up your holiday to-do list!
Ho, ho, ho! Santa's bag has lots of toys for little girls and little boys! Sampler blocks in vintage-inspired Christmas fabrics frame a nostalgic printed panel. This classic Santa panel was co-designed by Renee Nanneman and Karen Walker of Laugh Yourself Into Stitches, using a vintage 1950's Santa 5 foot sign-board that Karen found at an antique shop many years ago. Our Ho Ho Ho Quilt kit includes the pattern by Renee Nanneman and Retro Ho Ho Ho fabrics also by Renee for Andover Fabrics for piecing this generously sized, 70" x 94" quilt top and binding for $174.99. Our shop sample was pieced by Averi Reilly and quilted with E2E holly berries by Dorene Cole. We also have the panel available individually with either a grey or soft green background so you can put together your own quilt design full of Christmas magic. The Ho Ho Ho! Quilt pattern is a free download available here.
Jolly Old St. Nick will bring smiles and cheer to your holiday decor year after year! Cymoni Whatcott put together a merry, scrappy mix of prints and solids for this version of the popular St. Nick quilt by Lella Boutique. Kit includes the pattern and yardage as shown for piecing the 80.5" x 80.5" quilt top and binding for $174.99. We absolutely love the vintage ornament E2E quilting by Dorene Cole!
When we say Santa's coming... we may just be referring to the new block-of-the-month beginning January 2024!

Stitch Pink 2023 kicks off this week on Camille Roskelley's Instagram page @thimbleblossoms ! The beautiful Adore quilt and Lighthearted fabric collection was designed by Camille to be featured as part of Moda's annual Stitch Pink initiative to benefit breast cancer research and treatment. As you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month so pin on a pink ribbon and pick up a kit knowing your purchase benefits a very important cause -- and wouldn't a quilt be a great comfort to someone fighting the battle?
A note from the designer:
"What does it mean to be lighthearted? To me it means to be cheerful, full of love, and enjoying the simple things in life. Some of my favorite people have been lighthearted and full of hope, even in the middle of difficult treatments and challenging times. This collection is a tribute to them....
I am so honored to be a part of Moda's Stitch Pink program . Too many women I love and adore have fought a battle with breast cancer over the years and watching them fight has been both inspiring and life changing. My hope with this collection is that we can do a lot of good through raising funds for important services and research as well as encouraging those in the middle of treatment. We love you and we are cheering you on."
