New Loralie Spicy Cats fabrics

Many new fabrics just arrived at the end of this month.  We received a new very cute coffee panel and coordinates.  We received several new Moda batiks.  Quilting Treasures just sent us the newest Loralie Designs Spicy Cats fabric line.  This picture is the very adorable panel with two of the coordinates.  We just fell in love with these felines!  We have uploaded images of this fabric into our shopping cart and it is available for you to buy online.   

To the website online store–we added a new Moda¬†“neutral” fabric collection, a very cute Lakehouse¬†Pam Kitty fabric line, the remaining Quilt Across Texas fabric line, and some¬†blue bonnet¬†fabrics.¬† We are trying very hard to get more of our fabrics available online.¬† Thanks so much to Laura Brooks and Nancy Nall for helping us get samples done and our website in order.¬† We now have our website for the retreat center “live.”¬† We are in the process of adding more information but¬†I do hope you enjoy the pictures.¬† www.quiltagiousquarters.com¬†¬†Enjoy the cooler weather.¬† Stay inside and get some sewing done…

Happy quilting,


Two new BOMs from Quilt Market

¬†¬† We had a wonderful time at Quilt Market.¬† We restocked our needle nannies which were a BIG hit from Spring Market(shown in that market post).¬† We purchased new dies for the accuquilt¬†Go! systems.¬† We bought the digital cutter system—Slice¬†which is to arrive soon.¬† We look forward to playing with it.¬† We restocked our product from Block Party Studios.¬† They have some fun printed panels and labels.¬† We signed up and ordered some of the laser cut kits which you have probably seen in the Keepsake Quilting catalog.¬† This company¬†laser cuts the time intensive applique¬†projects by McKenna Ryan (and many more designers).¬† Her new botanical pattern is very beautiful.¬† We are taking pre-orders for that one.¬† Quilting Treasures has several new fabric lines that we loved and look forward to receiving in the months ahead.¬† You might check out their website to get a¬†sneak¬†peek.¬† Today we received a new fabric line by Riley Blake called Mod Tod.¬† Laura already has the project well on it’s way.¬† We have two new Block of the Month projects that you will be able to purchase¬†complete or monthly. Pictured below.¬† The very adorable applique¬†project, “Raining Cats and Dogs”¬†is designed¬†by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs using Moda¬†fabrics.¬† You can start that one now or the first of the year.¬† We are very excited to finally have made the plunge into Stone Henge¬†fabric by Northcott.¬† This neutral block of the month uses the VERY popular Ramblin’ Rose pattern set by Marti Michell.¬† Fabrics should arrive in Feb. 2012.¬† Sign up and reserve your spot!¬†

¬†¬† Make sure to keep an eye on our retreats and classes.¬† Don’t miss your chance to join Just Jennifer in her retreat the first weekend in December to make her very popular jacket, new vest pattern, or quilted purse.¬† You will finish during retreat!¬† Don’t miss the opportunity to join Alice Wilhoit¬†once a month to improve your applique¬†skills.¬† Her main focus¬†will be the Freezer Paper Starch Method but she will help you with any of your applique¬†needs every first Saturday.¬† Bettie Hammock has a great new technique class.¬† The stunning samples are in our store.¬† We have a lot going on in the store.¬† Stop by for a visit.
