Week of May 6, 2018 – Laundry Basket Quilts

I am sure many of you have heard of Edyta Sitar and her amazing designs for “Laundry Basket Quilts”.  Recently I purchased her book called Little Handfuls of Scraps and I have been making little quilts from her patterns.  I love them! 

I just had to share a picture of all of them together (and I have only scratched the surface – there are 32 patterns in all).

Although it was the most difficult (because of set in Y seams) I believe I like the center one the best.  It is called “Anna” – she has named all the quilts after women’s names.

Here is a picture of “Anna” (17.25” x 17.5”) by itself.  Don’t you just love the way the center star seems to vibrate with all the colors circling around each other?  Edyta has great directions in her book for putting this together, and it doesn’t even involve paper piecing.   But I must say that my set in Y seams improved greatly after making this quilt.  I might even have to add this picture to my Facebook page.  I just recently joined Facebook and I am enjoying all the quilting pictures and ideas that get shared.

Of course, I love that she also has some simpler quilts like this four patch (9” x 10.75”) which I set in purple.  It went together very quickly, and I appreciate the sweet look it creates.

Another easy to make quilt is “Sophie” which uses a little 2.5” charm pack. You

We had our 5th meet-up and show 'n tell yesterday and "Oh my gosh"!  The quilts are just amazing.  Here's a link to see photos of everyone's quilts done thru Round 5.  Saturday, June 2nd will be the final meeting and we invite eveyone to come and see the completed quilts.  From the incredibly striking red and whites and other 2 color variations - to scrappy - to one done completely in Cherrywood Hand Dyed Fabric  - it's going to be an inspirational quilt showing!

Hi Everyone!

If there's one thing we know for sure - it's that we have THE BEST customers anywhere!  Just because we love you so much, we are continuing the letter I "It's your choice" sale for 2 more weeks :-)

Use that 25% off one item to treat yourself - or get a fantastic Mother's Day gift for Mom.  Speaking of Mother's Day - we have some great gift items for you:
Bowl Mom over with one of these gorgeous, lightweight yarn bowls.  Nobody likes a runaway ball of yarn - these bowls will keep it corralled in style!  Reg $29.99  25% off = $22.49

  Treat your Mom to something really frivolous for Mother's Day - Moda Frivols are collectible tins of Moda precuts.  They are mini-kits in a sealed ready to give gift box!
Regularly $44.98 (We purchased a bunch from a shop closing - so they are already at a "revived" price of $24.95).  25% off of that = $18.71 WOW!

We are featuring jūl Leather Pedestal Buttons during our Letter J sale also.  Pedestal Buttons are improvisational.  These closures require no commitment, no sewing, and no pre-planning.  Instead, they are innovative screw-in "buttons" that can be used not only as substitutes for conventional buttons, but also to create shaping and to attach one knitted piece to another.  These flexible components can really transform knitted garments and accessories!  They are 25% during this sale!

Just to clarify the sale:  Let's say you purchase several items, including a jūl button(s) - the button or buttons would be 25% off.  You would still choose another item that would be your 25% off single item! 

Here's the scoop on our change in hours for the May Holidays:


Mother's Day:  May 13th: CLOSED

Memorial Day Weekend:
Saturday, May 26th OPEN 10 to 5
