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!
