New block party beginning Nov. 3

We will be starting our new block party on November 3.  We would love to have you join in the fun!

Becky has designed a wonderful commemorative quilt to celebrate family.  Here is a photo of the quilt in progress.

We have chosen some of our favorite blocks from past quilts to create the sampler blocks that will border each side of the quilt.  Of, course the date can be changed to suit your situation.  What a wonderful way to celebrate a wedding or anniversary of a loved one.

We plan to complete the quilt in 15 sessions.  The $30.00 sign up fee will include the first session.  The remaining 14 sessions will be just $7.50 per session.

Give us a call at 81-465-9133 to reserve your spot.

September Mystery Quilt

Fall is officially here!  Don't you love the cooler temperatures and beautiful leaves and thoughts of pumpkin and spice and cute little ghouls marching up and down the streets?  Hopefully, the yards and gardens will be put to bed soon leaving you with time to sew and make warm, cozy, beautiful quilts for the cold months ahead.

We are almost ready to turn the page on another month.  That means, we have a new mystery quilt to reveal.  And here it is.....

This one should be pretty fun and done for you with just a simple black snowball block and 6 inch squares.  I think the diverging stars that the corners link together are kind of fun.

We need to remind you all of the Beehive Shop Hop coming up October 10 - 13th.  As always there will be lot's of free patterns, fabulous prizes and all kinds of fun and games.  Please plan to join us and while you are out and about you can stop by the Peteetneet for the annual quilt show that will be going on there.

The mystery quilt for October will be using a Christmas line because you can never have too many Christmas Quilts!

  Give us a call......801-465-9133.
