show special

This too!

Did I mention that you could use it to "put a bird on it" too. Wherever you might like a bird that is! In this case on the end of a winter table runner. Love it!


Although I am not usually a fusible webbing kind of gal, this little machine is so much fun to use that I am hooked!

And for those of you going to Market, there will be a couple of opportunities to win some of these goodies you see below. In fact, there might be more than a couple of said opportunities. Stay tuned for times and places!





Pattern Debut #4 & a Special!

While the traditional classics are usually my favorites, every once in a while I like to play around with a more modern look and pattern. This pattern is the result of one of those times. A simple triangle shape and a row construction gives you so many different options...



... this is the version #1 from the pattern, made from our Breakfast at Tiffany's collection with that wonderful pumpkin orange dot as the sashing!


... closeup of the same quilt. Love my quilter!


Today we actually have a few of the kits for the above Breakfast at Tiffany's version available at the moment, 3 to be precise. Click here for more info. Add "thanks" into the discount section of your checkout process and you will get 15% off the kit!


... version #3 of the pattern places the sashing in a different place and with a different layout of the triangles, creates a completely different feel, almost like a more modern version of argyles. This sample is also made from Breakfast at Tiffany's.


... a closeup to show the quilting on this version, small feathers to fill the triangles.


... another closeup.


... same quilt made from Buttercup [available Feb, 2011 with a pink border]. 

...this version is the one I call Banners, for lack of a better name, or version #2 on the pattern. This one is made from the Buttercup line.

... same version made from Breakfast at Tiffany's.


.... the pattern cover shows a couple of the options and has more on the back.

Name: Nook & Crannies

Size: 59" x 59" to 62" x 65"

Fabrics Used: Breakfast at Tiffany's and Buttercup. Layer Cakes are the perfect cut to use for these quilts but of course your stash will do just as fine if you like.

Show Special #3

So... we thought it was time to share another quilt kit special with you. We are slowly recovering from and cleaning up after Market and have another wonderful deal for you as long as supplies last.

DRESDEN FANCY [feature pattern from Fresh Vintage #16] is 20% off with the coupon code at the end of this post!

This is one of those fun jelly roll methods that you might remember me talking about. All you do is cut a jelly roll into strips, sew up one side, open the tip and start sewing pieces together along a drawn line to make the "fan" portions of a traditional dresden plate block. Oh my gosh, you will just love this method once you try it! I guarantee it!


...kit is exactly for the fabrics as you see them here. You will be able to finish your quilt with or without the applique depending on your preference.


To see more about the pattern itself, see here.

This Fresh Vintage pattern also has the directions for this fun little fig [pattern, for kit for the Le Fig, go here]


To purchase a kit for DRESDEN FANCY, see here while supplies last.

For special discount, add "dresden" to the discount box during checkout & get your 20% off!


Enjoy & talk to you soon.

Show Special #2

Well... we're almost out of the Show Special #1... I guess we had made ALOT more of that one than I thought [ we have about half a dozen left and the shipping will combine of course if you decide to get both].

As for Show Special #2... it is the quilt from the same Fresh Vintage #17 as the All Hallow's Eve wall hanging, OCTOBER TIES.

We have about a dozen of these kits left so don't delay if you are interested [if you've already gotten the All Hallow's Eve kit from the show special and have the pattern that is included in the kit, let us know in the comments portion of your order and we will replace the pattern in this one with another Fresh Vintage issue of your choosing- be sure to tell us which one you would like!].


It is a super simple pattern that starts off with 2 charm packs and s simple partial bowtie block. A great lap quilt for the seasoned quilters among us or a fabulous beginning quilt for all you first timers out there.

Click here if you are interested. The kit is identical to the quilt shown above. It measures 61"x 61".

The kit will be 20% off with coupon "bowtie" [enter without the quotations]. 

Talk to you soon.
