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.  Enjoy the cooler weather.  Stay inside and get some sewing done…

Happy quilting,


Little Red Barns block of the month preview

What a beautiful spring day!  I am excited to post this picture of the new block of the month BOM) by The Quilt Company.  I love it!  Arlene and Melissa have outdone themselves again.  Take a look on our web store for pricing, etc.  Let me know if you would like to be included in this BOM through our store.  For those online, we always package a complete set to help save on postage.

Vickey and I are headed to Spring Quilt Market next Thursday May 12th late afternoon.  Please be advised our store is CLOSED May 13th-16th so we will process any online orders upon our return.  We are excited to see all of the new products at market.  I am going to market to find some awesome national teachers to come run retreats in 2012.  I plan to see the designer of the “skillbuilders” panel right off the bat.  The machine quilting retreat is May 20th-22nd and Jackie plans to use these great products to help participants gain confidence in their custom quilting abilities!  If you have  some type of sit-down quilting unit that is portable (like the Handi-Quilter sit-down) or you want to learn how to use your home sewing machine to finish your ever growing stack of quilt tops—this is a great opportunity.  Click on the schoolhouse on our home page and you will see a listing of all our upcoming retreats.   We will soon have some pictures posted of Quiltagious Quarters.  Let me know if you have any questions.

We are working very hard to update our online store since making Quilt Sampler Spring 2011…We have so much more than you see currently on our web store.  So much to do…so little time!  Enjoy your day.
