GUESS WHAT'S NEW 

  

Guess what we have for the animal lovers!

It's been raining cats and dogs and some of them have landed in our shop and on our walls.  Dog Park BOM and Alley Catz BOM are both here. Sign up to get a block each month, or request all blocks at the same time.  Its the cutest, easy-peasy applique, laser cut applique pieces, fusible already applied to the backs.  Just peel off backing and place in desired place on desired fabric background!  What could be "easier-peasier"?

While on the theme of animals, we have other panels just recently arrived that would be the absolute BEST for that baby or toddler quilt.  Check out the following fabrics/kits: 

"Love Is" panels; and then you definitely do not want to miss the newly reordered "Wild & Whimsey" panel.

#we have it!   #8 different colors  #Come get yours now.  #Join the techno age

Riley Blake Country Cowboy line is in.  We DO live in north TEXAS.  We have all the bandanas, paislies, cowboy-&-Indian fabric you need for your cowboy themed quilt.  

And, speaking of cowboys, don't forget we still have the most charming Horsin' Around fabric line, and kits available.

CHRISTMAS ALREADY??!!

Take a look at our new kit, To Be Jolly by Moda.  Its the perfect time to begin that Christmas quilt so that you can actually complete it by Christmas!

Or, if you're wanting a smaller Christmas project, we have the Merriment Gingiber Advent calendar kit.  Stop by to see a sample.


Show Time is Saturday!

SHOW TIME is Saturday, May 25.  We start at 10:30 sharp so bring our projects and a chance to win a door prize.  We want to see what you are working on.  Also during this month's Show Time we will introduce our new Saturday Sampler.  We hope you'll join us to learn about the program.  If you cannot be there at 10:30, you can still register and pick up your 1st month's block anytime on that Saturday. 

Instructions will be included in the packet if you are unable to make it so the first meeting.

This sampler is done in georgeous Batiks and very simple to make.  This will be a 15 month program with a finishing kit available. You can register online too. 

Return on the 4th Saturday of each month with your completed block and receive your next block for FREE.  If you do not pick up that day or if your block is not completed, the cost will be $5. 

Here is a preview of the quilt top.  We hope you'll join us.
