A Jump Start on our Annual 4th of July Sale

Hi Everyone,

We are having our Annual 4th of July Clearance Sale early, because I am taking a vacation for the first time since we opened the shop 5 yrs ago.

You can take 20% off everything in stock in the shop, all of those awesome new patterns, new fabrics, and even the clearance section. Sale ends Midnight on Monday 6/28/15.

Coupon Code is VACAY20 it is not valid on gift certificates or pre-orders.


Our website does not hold inventory that is in your cart which means sometimes we will run out of something that you ordered before we get to your order. We cut everything in the order that it was received but it is possible someone might check out with it before you do. In this case we will let you know right away. Please be certain that the email that you use when checking out is one at which we can contact you. Also shipping can take a few extra days due to the number of orders.

A Giveaway and Other News

Hey Everyone,

I am sorry it has been so quiet around here... We are gearing up for Shop Hop By The Bay which starts next Wednesday. We will have a trunk show of Alison Glass' Quilts from Market. If you love Alison and Angela Walters you don't want to miss it. Tons of new notions are coming in today and new displays... it is going to be a busy weekend.

We are sponsoring a giveaway on Maureen's Blog today for this pattern and the fabric to make it.

Head on over to Maureen's blog for a chance to win. The weather is already getting really hot here and that would be the perfect Summer dress.

Spellbound from Cotton + Steel arrived and it is so fun...  I love the motifs in this... especially the ghost dresses... and the mummies :)

Great Minds Think Alike

Just as I was signing on this morning to write this post Carolyn Friedlander posted about the quilt I am about to post about. Definitely go check out her post to see some tantalizing close ups.

One of the things I was most excited about at Market a couple weeks ago was the proliferation of hand work for Modern Quilters. I think Carolyn is a wonderful ambassador for slow sewing. Did you guys watch her seminar on the MQG website last week?

We are kitting this 9 month BOM pattern by Carolyn and we have the pattern available separately as well in case you want to use your own fabrics. The best part is that you can join us for "Slow Sewing Saturdays" which will be scheduled at the shop to work on your quilt and get some personal hand sewing time in.

A picture I took of the quilt at Quilt Market in Minneapolis
The kits will be available to ship by the end of July June. One of the fabrics is back ordered until then. There are also a couple fabrics in the quilt that are no longer available but we will replace them with something beautiful and similar in color and scale. We are taking pre-orders for kits here. If you want just the pattern it is available here.

We also will have kits available for the Austin House Quilt (this is one of the patterns that Carolyn taught at Quiltcon) you can pre-order those here. If you want the pattern only it is available here.

One fabric announcement:

 Tinsel has arrived and it is so gorgeous...

Sample Spree and One for you Giveaway

Hi Everyone,

Sample Spree didn't have everything I wanted but I got the lovely Cotton + Steel prints and Heather Ross' Tiger Lily.  Kaufman didn't have Rhoda Ruth :( and Art Gallery didn't have any of the new lines... I love them anyway though :) Can't wait to get on the floor today to see what awaits.

Here is a picture of half my haul... I bought two sets of all of Cotton + Steel so that I can sell one set to you guys... if I could have carried more I would have gotten more. Here is a pic of half the haul:

** Disclaimer: what you see next will be a poor representation of these fabrics. Honestly I uploaded all of the digital pictures of Cotton + Steel fabrics to the website last night before I went to sample spree and I was feeling underwhelmed with the prints. Then I got these in my hot little hands last night and I have to say they are amazing. The digital pictures do not do them justice... Honeymoon and Zephyr are luminous. Lucky Strikes is so charming (again as with Cookie Book I am in love with Kim's prints) and Paper Bandana is so sophisticated and beautiful. Picnic is filled with retro goodness and I can't wait to make some home dec and clothing with it. When I get home I am going to take the bundles apart so that you can see how beautiful they are.

In the mean time I have uploaded all of the pictures to the pre-order pages so you can get what you need :)

In Alphabetical Order:


Lucky Strikes

Paper Bandana

So  what about the Giveaway?  Just comment here about what you would do first at Market. I will draw a winner next Friday 5/22

You can win this canvas and Lawn from Cotton + Steel

Keep an eye on the IG and Facebook for more pictures from Market today.

A Small Break From Our Regularly Scheduled Programming...

Hi Everyone,

In an attempt to get the shop ready for my absence this weekend (Quilt Market) I have piled way more on my plate than I should have and I am now running around like a chicken with my head cut off. So I shall distract you with pretty pictures and promise many more over the weekend. Especially on the Facebook Page and the IG feed... keep an eye out for all kinds of lovely.

Ex Libris is in and we still have some of those amazing panels (because I was smart and bought two bolts of each) but they are getting thin so hurry if you want them.

We also got some of Anna Maria Horners new yarn dyes called Loominous... unfortunately they did not send a few of the bolts that I ordered but I have to tell you these feel amazing so soft and delicious!

Have a great week and lovely weekend... and see you next week with pictures of my Market Haul :)
