Fabric Friday!!

Fabric Friday!!

Are you ready for Halloween? Do you have any traditions? My halloween tradition is watching Hocus Pocus, one of the best movies E-V-E-R!

Here are some facts about Halloween:

Halloween is believed to have originated in Ireland. It was a Celtic festival, Samhain, which celebrated the harvest.

Next to Christmas, Halloween is the most commercial holiday.

In America, black cats are thought to bring bad luck, but in the UK it’s white cats.

Magician Harry Houdini died on Halloween.

It’s really rare to have a full moon on October 31, the next will be in 2020.

More candy is sold on October 28th than any other day of the year.

I’m not showcasing any ghosts or ghouls this time, but this fabric is so good it’s spooky. Ooooooooo!

Show and Tell!!

Show and Tell!!

I have had so many great emails lately from you quilters, showing off your quilts!  You all have been busy!

First up, is this adorable quilt made by Laurette using Little Apples fabric!!  Adorable!

Cute!

Next up is this super cute one from Suzanne!  She followed a tutorial and made it her own!!  (love that!) Aren’t those little sail boats adorable???

Sail Boats are so much fun!

Next is a dress from one of our local customers, Susan.  She came into the shop on Saturday to show off this adorable dress she is making for her granddaughter!!  (you might have seen me post it on facebook)  Seriously, isn’t it just darling!?  She used HomeTown fabric, by Sweetwater and a flower from basic grey!  (the Pattern number is 6309, Wrights, NEWLOOK, Kids, Bin 103, The pattern includes, a no sleeves, short sleeves, and long, and also a pattern for a matching coat to go with the dress)  Susan did such a great job, lining the whole thing.  It’s just beautiful!  And we can all agree that dresses aren’t the easiest thing to make!  LOL, I will stick with quilts!  🙂

Perfect for an Easter dress!! Love it.

Robin sent me this super cute quilt she made out of  Fiona’s Fancy, by Lila Tueller.  Love it!  She used the double slice tutorial, and I think it turned out great!!  She said that when she makes baby quilts she likes to be sure it’s not too ‘baby-ish’ so it will grow along with them!  It is almost a twin size, so they will be able to use that quilt for a very long time!!  What a great idea!!

Perfect fabric for any age girl! Fiona’s Fancy is just darling!

Last, but certainly NOT least is this quilt, that Barbara made.  She said she made it in two days, using the ‘Stack and Whack‘ tutorial.  This one is a real stunner.  I love that it is only two fabrics and makes such a statement!

Pop-pop-pop! The colors are so fun together!!

Thank you all, so much for taking the time to email your photos of the quilts you made!  It sure means a lot to us.  We love to see what you are making and hear your stories of quilting success!!

Have a great day!!

Jelly Roll Race

Jelly Roll Race

The first Friday of every month we have a ‘Friday night Sew’!  Anyone and everyone is invited to come sew with us!  Everyone brings a snack to share and a project to sew.  This week we ‘spiced’ it up a little with a Jelly Roll race!  It was a total blast! The Ladies were crazy and sewed the night away with most everyone finishing a quilt top!  We just love the group of women who come every month and look forward to visiting and catching up with them all.  Such great friendships have been made and  whenever we get together we have a ‘rolling on the floor’-laughing out loud- good time!
Just check out these quilt tops!
The tops were finished in record time {approx. 45 minutes} Amazing!  Some of the fabrics that were used,  Terrain by Kate Spain, Summer House by Lily AshburyDogwood trail by Sentimental Studios, Full Circle by Kathy Schmitz, Kona Solid Dusty Palette, Max and Whiskers by Basic Grey, Butter Cup by Fig Tree and Swiss Chocolate!
The finished size before a border was [approx] 58 X 60  Such a great size for a gift and a fast, easy project!
What we’re working on….

What we’re working on….

 

The Grinch meets Kate Spain.  And they got along so well!  🙂  We are putting together a quilt using the Kate Spain Flurry layer cake and one Robert Kaufman ‘How the Grinch stole Christmas’ Fat quarter pack!  We also used both sizes of Natalie’s tumbler templates!  (the 5″ and the 10″)

So, if you have both those templates BE READY!  We will write up the directions and tutorial this baby as soon as we’re done!

Hope you have a marvelous day!  Stay cool!  It has already reached 95 degrees here before 9 am!  HOT~HOT ~HOT~
