 Just in is this beautiful panel fabric from the Birch Bark Lodge group by Holly Taylor. featuring a bear and a moose in a rustic woodland setting.  We also have Layer Cakes (10" squares), Charm Packs (5" squares) and Jelly Rolls (2 1/2" strips) and some coordinating bolts.
 It's nearly Easter and time for bunnies, chicks and spring blossoms. The pillow we made from  French Rabbits by Bunny Hill Designs has made its reappearance for the season.  Jody did these using hand applique but you can fuse them and use a decorative machine edge stitch,
 Two bolts of Hello Luscious by BasicGrey for Moda are also new as are two new Mini Moda groups, Rooftop Garden, below and Sophie by Chez Moi in pretty pastels.

Remember that tomorrow, Saturday, March 17th, we are having a National Quilt Day sale with all fabric from the bolt, books, patterns and notions 20% off and bring a canned good for the Beaumont Baptist Church food pantry and receive a free fat quarter.

New Projects Finished! A Professional Tote and Simple Comforts Quilts

 A round-robin of sorts, Becky just finished quilting and binding this pieced and applique quilt from the book Simple Comforts by Kim Diehl, Mocha Stars.  Jody did the piecing with these beautiful fall colors and Becky did the applique and quilting.  Also, from the same book, Jody just finished quilting and binding this Cabin Cozy quilt which combines the Bear's Paw block and the Log Cabin and she used scraps from other projects in her efforts to 'de-stash'.
 A new line from Moda, Good Fortune by Kate Spade combines happy colors with an Asian flair. Becky made this Popsicle Sticks lap quilt using the line and it makes a wonderful spring/summer throw.
 Gen just finished this beautiful Professional Tote by The Creative Thimble. It's not only sturdy, it has an inside zipper pocket, vinyl pockets, drawstring side pockets, a handle for your luggage pull and an outside zipper pocket. It's roomy enough for an executive with a laptop, cell phone and other electronic devices or a busy mother's diaper bag with all the wipes, bottles and baby's extra clothes.  Gen used the fabric, Paloma by Blank Textiles and Moda's classic black.
