New Block of the Month!

I finally decided on what fabric I wanted for my block of the month quilt.  I got the first two blocks made today and up on the wall for you to see.  I used the Set B plexiglass templetes from Marti Michell.  Again, my pictures don't do it justice - they were taken with my phone.  Britney has got to find her memory card!!!

My fabric choice for my quilt - you choose the fabric you want for your quilt!!!

New Fabrics!!

The shop got in some beautiful new fabrics this week!!! Flutter & Flowers by Marcus Brothers for Independent Quilt Shop Only.  There is a great pattern you can get free with purchase.  My picture does not do it justice (sorry it was taken with my phone).  Fabric's retail price is $10.99 yard but it is only $5.99 yard at the shop!!!! 

Also coming:  108" muslin quilt backing.  New Accuquilt dies - hexagon, stars, circles & Alex Anderson's baskets.
Don't forget the March specials!

Senior Center Spring Craft Festival

Last Saturday was the spring craft show at the McMinn Senior Center.  I hate to say it was a very slow day, I think mainly due the the heavy rains we had in the morning.  But we it still was a fun day - got to meet some great venders.
One of our quilters attended the show with her daughter and won a door prize!  Carol was supprised when her name was called out - it was great.  She won a great Easter basket that was donated by a vender.

 We had a great booth! Don't you just love the sign!

Senior Center Craft Show, March 17th

So busy getting ready for the McMinn County Senior Center's Spring Craft Show, which will be Sat. March 17th. 
Working on baby quilts, pillows and other items to have there to sale.  Time to think about Mother's Day or putting alittle bit of spring colors in the house.

Several crafters will be there - fun day and  a great way to help local small business!  Plus a great way to help the Senior Center!
