So This Happened!

We are so excited to announce that we have partnered with Aurifil to create a box of threads with Whistlepig Colors !!  

All our favorite colors in one convenient box.  Or two boxes in this case.   Choose the large 12 color box where the spools have 1422 yds or the 10 color box with 220 yds on the spools.  

This is the best quality thread to be found so it's an amazing honor to be included as an Aurifil designer.

We've got three new RJR fabric collections already in the stores or coming very soon and this thread collection matches them all!


Monster Trucks

Happy Owl-O-Ween

I always have Aurifil loaded on my bobbins and machine ready to sew!!

Aurifil Thread is absolutely perfect for sewing perfect seams on my quilts and for creating applique.  This is what I consider essential for all my applique.

There is even matching size 12 thread which I love to use to add hand details to my projects.

I can very proudly display the finished project!!

Once again our wonderful friends at Quiltmaker have invited us to be part of their 100 Blocks blog hop.  This is Volume 12 and our block is #1105!  

I was learning how to Zentangle when I did this block.   Kinda reminded me of that process.

Just add a quick 3" border to make a great pillow top.

Or make it up in red for a Christmas or Valentines pillow

Turn it into a wall-hanging by adding some simple blocks for borders.

Now for the fun part!!  We will be giving away a 100 Blocks Volume 12 to three lucky winners

Just leave a comment on our blog and your e-mail so we can contact you.   Once we know our winners we will post them here on our blog and will contact you via e-mail to get your mailing address. 

Thanks for stopping by!!

Quiltmaker 100 Blocks Volume 11 Blog Tour 

Meet our girl Hippolina.  She is block number 1053 on page 38.  She makes me giggle!
She was on a recent safari when someone snapped this Polaroid shot!

Being the photogenic girl that she is (as well as an outgoing hippo) she gathered a gaggle of her friends for Portraits of Jungle Things.

We blew her up a bit to a 14" block and added some borders to create this  40" x 56" quilt.  A twin size version is included in the pattern, plus pillows!
Check us out!  New Whistlepig Patterns
