Goodbye blogspot

Since we changed web providers, we now have a blog on our website. So, I will no longer be updating my blog on this site. I will now being using the blog directly on our web site. So, unbookmark this blog and bookmark our web page which is I will continue to blog as I find it fun. So, just remember..... 8 days to Billy Joel! And, check out the blog on our website for a new display picture.

Free Web Site Quilt Block Pattern

Greetings quilting friends. Just wanted to let you know about a new FREE quilt block program we're about to launch. Beginning this Monday, 7/6/09, for the next nine Mondays we will be loading a FREE block pattern. After nine weeks, you will have nine completed blocks. On the tenth week, we will give you the setting instructions. We will have the blocks completed in two different color choices, reproductions and Christmas. Or, choose to use your stash and see what you can create. We will have the blocks kitted and available for you to purchase to be shipped to you every Monday. The picture is a sneak peak at the layout.

If we can get a lot of participants, we will have a quilt show in October to show off the completed projects and maybe win a little prize for viewers choice. So, please e-mail me and let me know if you're doing our web quilt and send pictures, too.

Let the countdown begin.....

Only 49 days.... until the first fall NFL football game. Ok, so I know you probably don't care but I could be the football wife and have a football husband widower. I don't really follow any team, except Ohio State I just like to watch it. I love to have it on and sew away. Anyways, here's what's new: QSI shop hop starts tomorrow with Lemon day on Tuesday. My project for this Shop Hop is called Lemonade so we're having lemon day to celebrate. We'll have fresh lemonade and lemon flavored treats.

Here's another countdown for you. If you've followed my blog, you'll know I'm a HUGE Billy Joel fan. Only 23 days until I see my next concert. About the millionth time I've seen him but I'll keep going as long as he keeps playing.

Stay tuned for an announcement regarding a free block of the week pattern starting on July 6th.

New Fabric: Haunted Hallow by Red Rooster Fabrics. I love Halloween and fall. I have more quilts for that time of year than any other. Check out this fabric, you'll love it!

New quilt

We're busy getting ready for the NQA Show this week. Stop by and say hi if you're in the area. Here's a new quilt I designed just in time for NQA. This uses a "convenience" fabric in the center and two borders. Takes less than an hour to whip up and looks fabulous! This fabric is from the Clara Barton collection by Windham. The center piece is a reproduction from the Clara Barton museum (founder of the Red Cross) and has signatures in the center of the blocks. (click on photo for close up view). The kit will be down in the booth for NQA and is only $29.99 for this 46" x 50" quilt.

New Fabric

We have received about 200 bolts of fabric so far in June. We just got Need it Neutrals by Andover, Figgy Pudding by Moda and Crazy Eight by Sandy Gervais for Moda.

Our web site is up again. We need a little time to get the items for sale loaded back onto the web site. With the NQA show and the QSI Shop Hop events coming up we're a little backed up right now.

We will have special NQA show store hours on Sunday, June 21st from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm.

Web Site

Hi everyone - all 6 of you anyways:) If you have been to the web site in the last day, you'll notice it's not working. We are in the process of changing our web host and, of course, it didn't go as smoothly as planned. It should be working very, very soon.

More new fabric has arrived: Worn & Loved II, which I already mentioned but I will have photos soon. Folkorika by Andover and Harmonies by Jo Morton.

NQA Little Quilt Auction

We love to go to the little quilt auction at the NQA show. It's on Friday night (6/19) and you can just come for the auction, you don't have to buy dinner. Here's my donation for the auction. I call it "Ode to Jo" because it is made using 84 different Jo Morton fabrics. It measures 11 1/2" by 14 1/2".
