Basket Quilt, Iris Tote and Saturday Sale!!

 Recently we made Jelly Baskets by Fig Tree Quilts from the Lakehouse Drygoods Penelope line, so pretty in clear pinks, soft blues and we added a bold burgundy star in the middle for 'pop'!  What a beautiful quilt for a summer throw or springtime gift for a friend.  Becky just got it quilted today and we'll have kits available soon.
 Come in this Saturday, April 30th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to save 20% of the regular priced bolt with a one yard minimum cut and receive a free fat quarter with your purchase.  Also, if you buy over $50 of merchandise, receive a free issue of the Summer 2011 Quilts and More issue!
 And here is a sneak peek at the quilter's tote Gen is making from beautiful lime greens, bright yellows and pretty purple's and lavenders. The irises are fused on and Gen used a blanket stitch around them.  Who wouldn't want this tote to carry to quilt shows, shopping or around town?!

So, even though your springtime garden beckons, take a little break this Saturday and stop by to save on some luscious fabrics for those upcoming projects and get some ideas and inspiration while you're here!!!

Civil War Doll Quilt

 Last week, we made this little Civil War doll quilt using four inch Sawtooth Star blocks set on point and this beautiful Civil War print by Howard Marcus for Moda.  Becky had the perfect little china doll and babydoll bed to display it on.  Who wouldn't want this for their collection?!  We plan to make more Civil War doll quilts as part of our preparation for our upcoming Carolina Shop Hop July 8th through 16th commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.  Stop by to see the Civil War fabrics we have and we'll be adding a rag doll to this tableau very soon using a pattern by Aunt Beez!
