Ravenwood by Jo Morton

And for everyone that has caught the “Red & White” quilt fever – we have ordered more Bella Solids in the much sought after shades of Country Red and Ivory – we apologize for selling out of those last week!  Those are now available for pre-order on our website.  (and just a little side note – the “price” of the Bella Solids has increased, so if you visit our webpage you will notice the price difference on these two colors we have re-ordered.  We do apologize, but we knew it was coming!)

+++++++

We are busy getting ready for the Paducah show!!!  Are you coming??? Stop by the Kentucky Oaks Mall Tuesday April 26th through Saturday April 30th and say “hello”!  We’ll be there with bells on and have everything on our website – in the booth!

New Fabrics and Other Goodies Newsletter!

This is a long newsletter – but full of good things! If you already subscribe to our newsletter – you should have received this in you email account already!
 
Lot’s of new goodies!
Well, we’ve been busy as ever – accepting new fabric deliveries and cutting up lovely bundles of fabric!  Check out these new beauties!

Manchester By Nancy Gere for Windham
We have this line available in fat eighth, fat quarter and half yard bundles and even broke it down into individual color bundles this time!

Cedar Chest Memories by Faye Burgos for Marcus Brothers
This fabric line is also available in several different bundles sizes as well as yardage.

Alice’s Wash Day Blues by Carrie Quinn for Blue Hill
Our first order finally arrived after a long, long wait!  It’s gorgeous.  We have a few bundles and select yardage still available.  A second order was already placed weeks ago for this fabric and we hope to have more yardage and bundles available soon if you miss out on this round!

Here’s an oldie, but goodie!

Toast II by Jo Morton for Andover
We were lucky enough to get this collection of fabric back in stock and the bundles of fabric and yardage is up on the website!

We’ve got a little surprise to share —–  This is a good one too!

The cat’s out of the bag – those great gals from Bonnie Blue Quilts have been at it again and are bringing this fabulous Block of The Month Project to our doors very soon!  Look!

Block of The Month registration for “The Cotton Club”  is now open and we are offering you several different ways to join in on the fun!

All of the information is up on our website so go check it out and let us know what you think!  And of course there are no registration or membership fees!

The Cotton Club

We cannot wait to get this fabric line in – the reds and browns are so lovely!

*******
* The Civil War Reunion fabric saga continues.  We are still waiting on more of this fabric to arrive, but this week’s deliveries are looking pretty promising!  If everything runs smoothly, we should be able to ship out the remaining Pre-Orders for the Civil War Reunion fabrics that we have not shipped yet.  Those orders will probably start to ship by next Monday if everything arrives as scheduled.


Centennial Treasures fabric update – we have no “new” news on this line yet.  It should be coming soon.


Crossroads To Texas fabric line – again this is a Blue Hill Line of fabric and if you recall from our last newsletter – Blue Hill is moving their entire inventory to a new warehouse location!  What a job!  They should be back – up and running as usual very soon.

*********

** Please note the following “boo-boo” or “error” in our new book “Simply Charming: Small Scrap Quilts of Yesteryear”.  Sadly – and most embarrasingly a template error was discovered at one of my most recent book signings.  I’m embarrased, but yet we will move on from this.  We have 2 templates in this book shown on pages 85, (the tumbler template), 96 & 101 (this is the triangle template – same template for different quilts).  Please note in your books that the templates are too large.  While the template printed for the “Living Off The Scrap Bag” pattern or the “tumbler” on page 85 will still make a lovely quilt – it will be bigger than the quilt pictured.  The “triangle” template for the “Stars Over The Mountains” quilt and the “Hidden Treasures” quilt will work just fine also – but the printed “cutting dimensions” for your borders will be to small!

Both Templates – disregard the outer printed “cutting line”   Use the “dash line” or the sewing line as your cutting line instead.

What has happened – when we requested that a seam allowance be added to our templates for the book, the seam allowance was added to the outside of our template – not knowing – we meant to add the seam allowance to the “inside” of our template.  Easy mistake to make, but this one slipped through our hours and hours of editing and we do apologize.  Like I said previously – both of these templates are still quite usable as printed – the finished piece will just turn out larger than our models!

Next, for the template for the “Stars of the Mountain Quilt” shown on page 96 and the “Hidden Treasure template shown on page 101 – same thing – use the printed sewing line as your cutting line instead. If you chose to use the templates in the size they are physically printed – please be aware that your borders will need to be cut larger!!!!  Measure your finished piece and use those dimension for cutting your borders and NOT the printed sizes in the book!

(be a kind quilter and help us spread the word on this correction – if you have friends or family that have a copy of this edition (the first printing) of this book – please let them know of the corrections!)

*****
It’s time for us to take a little break and go on a family adventure this coming weekend.  April 8 and 9, 2011 we will be going out of town.  No orders will be shipped on those days, but normal shipping will continue on April 11th, 2011 as always!

*****

Be sure and check our ad in the June 2011 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine!  Page 125 – it’s being shipped to subscribers now and should be on newstands soon!

*****
Are you coming to Paducah for the quilt show at the end of this month?  Be sure to visit us at Kentucky Oaks Malls – same location as last year!  We’ll be open April 26th through the 30th!


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!!!
You can view Marsha’s Blog here:
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!

Also:

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!

Next:

Alice’s Wash Day Blues

and

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
Indigo

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:

A TOUCH OF AMISH
130 Applebee Street
Barrington, IL 60010
847-381-0900
www.atouchofamish.com


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!!!!

This time in particular I am asking a favor of you.  We are re-ordering several of Jo Morton’s fabric lines that were introduced this past year and hopefully we will begin to see that fabric arriving at the end of January.  If there is any particular Jo line you are interested in, please be so kind to drop us an email at sewunique7@aol.com  or simply leave a comment!!  We are looking into ordering pieces from her older lines also!

Just a reminder that we will be closed December 31st, 2010 through January 2nd, 2011.  All orders received during this time will begin to ship on January 3rd, in the order they were received. I will be back tomorrow posting the winner here on our blog to the give away we talked about yesterday!

We wish you a very safe and Happy New Year.  May all your dreams, wishes and hopes come true.

Sale Fabric
As we approach our leaving for Houston Quilt Festival, we will slowly be packing up inventory for the show over the next 2 weeks.  You will start to notice our inventory of fabric will be reduce as we start bundling and pulling things.  All clearance fabric will be traveling to the show with us (as will everything else!)  So – if there are any goodies in the Sale Fabric section that you want now – better go grab it while you can – they will not last!  We also added the following collection to the Sale Section on our website!


The Cocheco Mills Collection – yardage and bundles

The Cocheco Mills Collection – Fat Quarters

We leave for Houston to be a part of International Quilt Festival in just 2 short weeks!  I hope to see many of you there – be sure and stop by our booth – #2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 and say hello to us and also to welcome my husband (our helper during the show)!  He’s a “newbie” to working a show booth so be gentle with him!!!!

Also – we have exciting things coming very soon!  We are going to be a part of a great Blog Hop – details to follow as we receive more info!  Great free patterns, recipes and general chit chat will be included between the 12 bloggers that are involved in this hop!

And on a final note, we have received information on upcoming fabric price increases – all across the board.  I have seen a few increases already.  I’m so saddened to hear of yet more increases due to shortages of griege goods overseas and over all increase in costs to produce our wonderful quilting fabrics.  While we are at Quilt Market in a few weeks, we’ll be getting more information on the fabric price increases and will let you know what is to come.  As always, we will continue to do our best to bring you excellent fabric prices and quick shipping!
