Mystery fabric change

The August mystery quilt was originally planned using a variety of blue and green fabrics.  We ordered the fabrics and thought all was well.  When the shipment arrived it was missing a few key pieces that are no longer available.  We have switched to the fabrics pictured below for the August mystery quilt.  We think they are even cuter than the original plan.




 Some of you had signed up for the August Mystery with the blue and green fabrics in mind.  If the fabrics above don't appeal to you we are happy to apply the fee to a future mystery kit or issue a refund.  Please give us a call.

Thanks so much Kelly & Becky

Second Saturday Sampler block 6



















For this block you will need:

8) white 4" squares
2) red 4" squares
2) green 4" squares
2) brown 4" squares
2) yellow 4" squares





Draw a diagonal line on the back of all eight of the white (4”) squares.

Place all of the print squares, right sides together and outside edges aligned, with a 4” white square.  Sew ¼ inch on each side of the drawn lines.  Cut apart on the line.  Square to 3½ inches and press open.

Sew four half square triangles of matching colors together to form a pinwheel.  Sew the four pinwheels together to create the block.

July Mystery quilt

We are posting a photo of the July Mystery quilt for your reference.  The quilt ended up measuring about 67" x 86" so it is the largest quilt we have done in a while.  Perfect for your favorite little one.


 Oh, and don't forget the matching pillow case. 

The August mystery fabrics are on their way.  We will post them as soon as we get them in so check back.

Oops - we made some mistakes

If you are working on the "Bee Haven" block party quilt we need to notify you of a couple of corrections.

1. Session Five - the beehive
      The cutting instructions on the 2nd row should read:
            2nd row - 2) 3" x 6 3/4",  (not 6 1/2")

2. Session Six - if you have picked up your kit you need to know we miscalculated the gray honeycomb fabric.  There was not enough included in the kit.  Please stop by at your convenience and we will have the additional fabric for you. 

(For those who have not picked up the kits yet we will have the fabric added.)

So sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Thanks,
Kelly & Becky
