This sample is out of the Blush fabric designed by BasicGrey of Moda fabrics. (For some of you who enjoy scrap booking, you may recognize the name or possibly the design as BasicGrey designs scrap booking paper!) This sample is a quick and easy table topper by New Leaf Stitches. Our lap size quilt is still in progress . . .

Ah yes!! New fabric arrived in the snowstorm Monday!!

What fun and refreshing fabric on that cold and awful day. This is Holly Taylor's newest fabric collection called Lakeside Resort. For those of you familiar with Holly Taylor designs you know that they are Minnesota designers. The fabric was inspired by, yes you guessed it, the lake. We are very well known for lakes around here, and although this is not lake specific it truly reminds us of "home"

The outhouse has been the favorite block of many people who have come in the shop.

The fence with wheat is very reminiscent of the area of the state that we are located in!! The sign above can be a common sight around many lake campgrounds in the summer and if you see the fabric in person can find the names of the 2 designers, the lake name and lake lodge.

The last squares . . .the tree swing brings back fun memories doesn't it? And that and the calm serene look of the wooden dock leading to the lake with lush green grass would be quite nice about right now!!

On a side note with the talk and thinking about the lakes, I want to take an quick moment to tell you that if you go fishing, have loved ones that go fishing, want to go ice fishing, or live in a place (such as Minnesota) where people go ice fishing, take a few moments to check out the Pieces from my Heart blog by Sandy Gervais this week!

Block 9: Split Nine Patch
This block is a fun layout using a half-square triangle and solid square. I guess again today history will have to wait as I was unable to find information on this to share. I believe that this again may be due to the fact that there are just so many names for each block and I would believe this to be no different.
