New Quilt Pattern & New fabrics!

We have uploaded a new quilt pattern to our website.  Above is “Two Piece Puzzle” a quilt pattern designed by us that first appeared in the April 201 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine!  Check your older issues to see if you already own this quilt pattern – if not – we now have it on our website.
From now through the end of March this quilt pattern is on sale and the shipping is free!  You can view this pattern and order here:
I must graciously thank:
Marsha – blogger extraordinaire for blogging about this quilt pattern and sharing her version on her blog below!  Isn’t it pretty!  It just made my day to see her beautifully finished quilt on her blog!!!

In other news, we’ve had an avalanche of fabrics arriving on a daily basis.  Yesterday alone brought the arrival of:

The above 3 photos are of a great new fabric line that we somehow missed seeing last fall at quilt market and we were “lucky” enough to still be able to order it!  Love that cheater cloth fabric!

Prairie Homefront

Above is Shirt Tales!
And above is the long awaited
Civil War Reunion fabric by Barbara Brackman!  We have received almost all the pieces to this collection – we are still waiting on one more bolt to make it’s grand appearance, which will be early next week!  All the other fabrics are available on line!
And for those of you that do not subscribe to our newsletter – below is a copy of what we sent out earlier this week!  So – as usual, if you are already a subscriber – no need to read any further! 
Have a great quilting day!

Shirt Tales
A new 15 piece collection of shirtings and three colorful prints are here!

Shirt Tales bundles and yardage!

Back in stock:

Toasty by Jo Morton

We placed a double order again of Toasty so there are plenty of bundles and yardage available now!


Bonnie Blue Basics III
Now back in stock – all bundles and yardage are available once again!

And also, even though it’s these are not reproduction fabrics either – we still liked these 2 fabrics and received them this week!

Creamery Neutrals IV by Buggy Barn

And more:

Collections For A Cause: Faith
We have 6 different size bundles of fabric to chose from and all are available again!
(and yardage too!)

And in on-going news:

Civil War Reunion

This fabric will start “appearing” on our doorstep this coming Thursday.  I say “start” because for some “unknown” reason, Moda is not shipping all of our fabrics at once – as they have traditionally done in the past.  We have orders for this fabric line coming in starting on Thursday and continueing through next Monday so far (with many more shipments to come!!!)  Mr. UPS will be a busy boy!

We will begin to ship orders as soon as everything arrives!


Alice’s Wash Day Blues


Crossroads To Texas

have been delayed.  This is beyond our control and without going into an extreme discussion about my “pleasant” phone conversations yesterday – believe me when I say – the fabric will be coming.  Blue Hill is moving their entire inventory to a new warehouse location.  This means – a 2 week delay – this news is coming directly from Blue Hill.  I know, I know – why did they not tell us of this move sooner????  Your guess is as good as mine!

On a more positive note – we have ordered more of each fabric line.  Thank you to each of you that have pre-ordered and personally contacted us to inquire about ordering more yardage.  The additional fabric orders have been placed and I will now try to “play the waiting game” in a ladylike fashion (this is very hard for me – I want this gorgeous fabric here as much as you do!) Also – Blue Hill tells me that they are improving their website to make it more user friendly and will also be offering a “freebie” pattern with each fabric line very soon!

Also (hint-hint) you really should check out the new lines of fabric that we will have coming in starting in June!

Dear Jane II
Cotton Club
Sara’s Stash

The following we do not have fabric images for just yet – but trust me – each line is gorgeous!

Crimson Bouquet by Jo Morton
Sweet Emilie by Jo Morton
Carolina by Jo Morton
Manchester by Nancy Gere (maybe – we are waiting to see if this is still available to us!)
Prairie Homefront by Julie Larsen (same thing here – we are waiting to see if the fabric is even still available!)

And in other “local” news – if you are in the Barrington, Illinois area this coming Friday, March 25th from 10 am to around 11 or so – come see me!

I’ll be signing our new book and showing each of the 20 quilts at the following quilt shop:

130 Applebee Street
Barrington, IL 60010

And a special note for our friends “across the pond”  – particularly our customers in Australia!

Please take the time to notice when you place your next order that we have updated our shopping cart to now include the Australian States as a shipping option instead of choosing “outside the US” as your shipping address!  If you do not see your state – do not panic, order as you normally do and email us with the name of your state and we will “update” our system again to include it!

Also – welcome customers from Cyprus!  We have now added your country to our shipping locations!  If ever you cannot “find” your country or state listed in our options on our shopping cart – just email us and we’ll add you!

and finally…..

Paducah Kentucky or bust!

We’ll see you (at least we hope to!) in Paducah, Kentucky at the 27th annual Paducah Quilt Show!

Our booths will once again be located in the mall – so come visit us!  We’ll be bringing everything you see on the website – plus much more!!!!
