This cute little guy is also one of Darci's new wool patterns. Stumpy is a good fit for the Penny Around background or looks cute simply hung up on a wall, or set facing you on a table.
This is one of our newer favorites. It is also a bigger candle/table mat size.
It's all about Love
This little wool mat gives you some fun possibilities. . .it can be used on the Penny Around background, it can have a pocket added on the back to be used as a gift holder for your special valentine, or it can have a fun ribbon attached at the top so it can hang.
Speaking of "love" we have fallen in love with Pinterest. I say this with caution as it can get to be a bit addicting once you start looking on it but if you have a **few** minutes to spare and are wondering what to do. . .check it out!! (www.pinterest.com) If you are a do-it-yourselfer you will have found a fabulous new place to get inspired!! *We are not responsible for the "wasted" hours you may spend searching through the thousands of interesting ideas/quotes/pictures/etc!
When we have managed to pull ourselves away from the computer we've had fun working with some new fabrics and patterns!!
Madeline is a great pattern by Miss. Rosie's Quilt Co. that features charm packs for it's quilt top sewing. The above quilt has been a big conversation piece in the shop and we cannot wait until we get the boltage shipment later this spring. The wonderful fabrics above are Collections for a Cause: Friendship by Howard Marcus for Moda.
Equally as popular has been Twist & Churn by This & That patterns out of the new Redwork Rennesiance by Chloe's Closet for Moda. This is a charm pack pattern (a good usage of the whole pack I may add) that makes a fun shaped and nice sized table topper.
If you like charm packs but have trouble finding good patterns this one is a good one to add to your list. All you need is that one charm pack you absolutely love and some coordinating binding and you are all set my friend. . .sew away!
We've also been working in the Quilt's and More magazine.
We also hope to have the second color way finished for you all to see of our next Block of the Month Quilt. For those of you who missed the first one, it's back a few posts and it's green white & black. This one will be set different and is out of Kansas Troubles!!
