Bee Haven photo

Some of you have been waiting for a photo of the Bee Haven quilt we did as a block party last year.

Well, the quilt is finally finished so we are posting a photo for reference as you work on putting it together.  (Congratulations to those who have already finished it!)


(As usual, the quilt looks better in real life but hopefully the photo is good enough to help with the layout for those who need it.)

Second Saturday Sampler block 12

For the block you will need:

8) 4" white squares
4) 4" pink squares
4) 4" red squares

Draw a diagonal line on the back of each of the 4" white squares.

Place each of the red and pink squares (right sides together and outside edges aligned) with one of the  marked white squares.

Sew 1/4" on each side of the drawn line.  Cut on the line and square to 3 1/2".  Press toward the print.

Use the photo above to arrange and sew the pieces to create the block.

Thanks for participating in our Second Saturday Sampler series.  This is the last block for this quilt.  If you need finishing fabrics just let us know.  We have fabric left to do a few finishing kits.

If you got the finishing kit but not the instructions give us a call and we can email them to you.  We will be closed the week of Feb. 6 -10 to participate in an off site quilt retreat so it would be best to call next week.

We are planning an all new quilt to begin the second Saturday in April.  We will post details later.

Thanks again!  Kelly & Becky

January mystery quilt and other

The mystery is over.  Here is a photo of the January mystery quilt.

We are really happy with the way it turned out.  Hope you like it.

Just a little reminder.  This Friday is the first Friday of the Month.  We have added fabrics to the shelf for the $5.55 sale.  Among them are fabrics we used for the current buck a block quilt.  If you need backing it's a great way to get it.

The photo below pictures the fabric collection we have planned for the February mystery quilt.  Give us a call to reserve yours.

 And lastly - we have the opportunity to participate in a quilting retreat next week (Feb. 6 -10).  As a result the shop will be closed Tues. through Saturday.  We appreciate your business and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Since the 10th is the second Saturday that we would normally pass out the buck a block kits - we are planning on having them ready a week early.  Or you can pick them up the week following Feb. 10th.

Thanks so much!
Kelly & Becky

Heart and Home block 5 correction

We have discovered an error in the cutting instructions for block 5 of the Heart and Home quilt.  The second line in cutting the house should read 2) 2" x 5"  instead of 2) 2" x 2 1/2".

We apologize for the error and hope we caught it before you got your fabric cut. 

If you have already cut the fabric please come and get a piece the correct size.

Happy New Year!

We sincerely hope you all had a wonderful holiday season.  We are looking forward to 2018 and wish you all a happy and prosperous new year.

Sorry we are a little late in sending out the reminder but tomorrow (Jan. 5) is Five fifty five Friday.  Here is a little peak at some of the new fabrics we have added to the shelves.

Come and claim yours tomorrow.

December Mystery quilt

So sorry!  We rushed right in to the Christmas Holidays and forgot to post a photo of the December Mystery Quilt. 

So.... here it is.

The beautiful home spun fabrics from Moda lend themselves nicely to the simple patchwork pattern.  We backed the quilt with a soft green minky fabric.  What a cuddle quilt this turned out to be. 

Thank you all for participating in our mystery quilt program.

We are planning the January mystery quilt using the Callington Mill collection from Penny Rose fabrics.

Becky has planned a pretty traditional quilt for January. 

Don't miss out!  Give us a call at 801-465-9133 to reserve your kit.
