WIP and Monthly Newsletter

News & Updates
Just over a week ago, doing a good deed, we encountered a weather condition that we had no control over. The result is our truck is totaled and we're healing. I am praising the Lord for the guardian angels who kept the truck rolling until it was upright, engine running, and safety to make it back home without further incident since all of it occurred in a 'no service' area.  Although we didn't get the good deed done and we were bruised up, we are grateful to be alive. We will trust that April will bring Showers of Blessings (hopefully no further weather incidents!) as we figure out logistics going forward that our truck provided for various occasions that include my quilting activities.
Closed April 9-15, 27-30.

New Country Register editions have arrived, please stop by and pick one up!

Join the Toscana Club!
Want to add all kinds of colors to your stash?

Northcott's Toscana line is my color wall at the shop. I've had several inquire about pre-cuts of the entire line. The smaller sizes you can get all at once. The larger sizes you can sign up for the club and get 10 - 12 pieces monthly (each vertical is a month).

All 135 - 5" squares = $30 - one time purchase
All 135 - 10" squares = $90 - one time purchase
1/2 yard cuts - over 12 months you'll receive all 135 - $50/month or as many months at a time that you'd like. If you'd like just one particular vertical, they are also available.
Yardage by the SKU $8.50/yd

I want to do this!

Area Activities - Spring Fling Quilt Show - April 27-28 - Odessa, WA

Just had to share the results of our Bargello class -- a super quick design - Two Fabric Bargello by Susie Weaver. All fabrics and patterns are available here.


My own finish:


If there are any particular techniques or projects that you'd like to have as a class, gather your friends who are interested and we'll schedule a class that works for you. Costs will be determined based on number of students and time needed for the project.

Finished up my #OnRingoLake - runner size. Going to a special person, likely in May. This one was an opportunity to design a continuous custom edge to edge quilting design. Always love it when I can make this work.

March blocks are spread throughout this photo for my #365blockchallenge2018 progress. I haven't done most of them to be honest, so have a bit of catching up to do. Bu tall of the first round borders have been issued to go around the center block, so I'm quite keen on getting them finished up so I can do some actual assembly!

Here is a new design, kits available with instructions coming soon!
Whispers of Wisdom is the panel and I've put this design together to complement it and make for a lovely lap size quilt.

And a commission for a very special young man who will be graduating this year. Borders to be added.
