 Basket Quilts

Baskets - pink and brown

I think spring has really arrived. My tulips and daffodils are up and it makes me think of Easter Baskets, May Day Baskets and of course Quilt Baskets.

I thought I would share a few little basket block quilts today. This first one is made with little 2” Basket blocks called “Baby Bunting”.  I guess I still can’t get away from my favorite pink and brown fabrics.

Baskets EBayThis next one I purchased on e-bay. According to Barbara Brackman it is just called “Basket” block. I love the way the quilter added a floral fabric for the center triangle to add interest to her baskets. Not only does it have adorable baskets but it is hand quilted. Of course, that makes it even more special to me since I don’t do a lot of hand quilting, but I love it when other people do.Basket watercolor

This third quilt is a throwback almost 20 years ago to my “watercolor” quilt days. I used to love to cut up little florals into 2” squares and put them together to create a design.

Local Artist, Karey Grant, AKA Aspenkid Fibers is a favorite of ours!

You've probably seen her gorgeous yarn for sale in the shop!

Her yarn is Hand-Dyed, Hand-Blended, and Hand-Spun!  Seems only right that she and her lovely creations be part of our Letter H Happenings!

Beginning This Tuesday, April 11th - We will be hosting an AspenKid Trunk Show!  Stop by any time throughout the Letter H Sale to see and shop Karey's work! - She'll be there Tuesday afternoon with lots of her woven pieces (they are spectacular) to show as well!

Support a local artist and treat yourself to some very special creations!  In the spirit of opening week for baseball season, that's a HOME-RUN!

April 9th

Happy Spring!  Happy Passover!  Happy Easter! There's a whole lot of Happy going on to coincide with our Letter H Sale!  

H has us thinking about holidays already - I know, it's early - but is it ever too soon to prepare? Even if that preparation is just getting a pattern and yarn or fabric set aside to work on as Christmas gets closer!  Or, if you are like me it could mean just putting that fabric or yarn in a gift bag with an "I OWE YOU a sweater, quilt etc."  and giving that gift!!  

Anyway - We hope our Letter H events will inspire you to think Holidays a bit early this year also :-)  We have been making up some fun, quick holiday project ideas - so ask about those when you come in!

We are featuring a trunk show of really, really beautiful hand spun yarn by local artist, Karey Grant (AspenKid Fibers).  A hank or two of her lovely yarn would be a very special gift for any fiber lover! Karey is a weaver and will have lots of her woven art to show during the kick off of the trunk show Tuesday Afternoon, April 11th.

All of our Holiday Fabric, Patterns, Books and Kits will be 25% off!
