Happy Holidays

Well it is officially that time of year! We are in the middle of Chanukah and days from Christmas & Kwanzaa! And boy do we have some holiday weather here! We had day off because of all the snow yesterday! And on Wednesday we had a fun baking day! We kind of needed yesterday off to come down from our sugar high! Here are a few of my favorite shots from Baking Day.

They kept giggling for this photo!
Then Bernie walked in and that made them giggle more!

Quilt Magazine

A little while ago I showed a sneak peek of a project that would be appearing in Quilt Magazine. It is finally out! Yay! We are very excited about this bag! It is a quick but fabulous carry-all purse that looks complicated but goes together in a flash! It is called "My Garden Bag" and you can find the instructions on pages 38-40 of the February/March Issue. Plus they (being Quilt Mag) are doing kits for the fabrics shown in the magazine! (the line is Bird Song by Yuko Hasegawa for RJR) The buttons we used are from Hillcreek Designs, they add the perfect touch!

On the Left is the original Sneak Peek & on the Right is the Full View!
This is the bag that is featured in the magazine and will be kitted!

I like the red and white in the white bowl. Two tone quilt projects look nice, in red and white they will look festive. Thanks for the opportunity to win one!

The green bowl is perfect for my Christmas butternut Squash and Bacon Soup. We have an old set of Swedish Angel Candle Chimes that we always light on Christmas Day for dinner even though we now have to send to Holland to get the candles. My wife and our customers love your patterns! -Trevor

Caterwauling Tales Freebies

The fabric has been shipped and is starting to appear in quilt stores everywhere! That means it is time for some new FREE Projects! We have 3 fun new projects for the new Caterwauling Tales fabric line! They all use the panel and go together quickly! The First Project is a Wall Hanging!

This fun wall hanging coordinates with the Caterwauling Tales Quilt and has the fun same scrapbook look! Pick your favorite three panels to showcase! Wall Hanging finishes 17" x 42"

These Pillow Shams are in one free pattern! They are the perfect size to slip over a standard size pillow! The top black background pillow uses the extra decorative strips from the panel that are just cut away for all the other patterns! Put these fun strips to work in a pretty cascade of color on the Caterwauling Tales Pillow Sham. The bottom pink and blue pillow could be made in your favorite colors to add a pop of color to your bed! These pillow shams can be quilted to add a little extra loft and comfort! Each sham finishes 20" x 30" and fits standard and slightly larger pillows!
The Caterwauling Toss Pillow has a fun Flower Flange around it and fits a 16" pillow form. This pillow also is quilted and would be the perfect addition to any other Caterwauling Tales project! It also has adopted the same scrapbook style so pick your favorite panel and give it it's own personal pillow!

Well those are our freebies! You can click the photos to be taken to the PDF or head over to the Freebies Tab! We hope you like them! And like always, if you make one up, we would love to display it on here and facebook! Send pictures!

Sneak Peek!

Another Magazine Project! This one is for Fons & Porter! They are bags and super cute! It is going to be tough not to show full photos of these ones! So, here is the little sneak peek! It will be months before we get to show the full thing, but trust me, they are worth the wait! These little guys go together so quickly we have made 5 already and 4 more in the works! They will be out just in time to make a little bag for summer! Oh summer, how I miss thee! =]

June Wrogg

June Wrogg made the Scrap Bag Cuties up in some adorable Moda fabrics! She was a little hesitant because this was her first bag with elastic, but she did amazing and it looks fabulous! June took it as her travel purse on a trip to Florida and loved it!

Scrap Bag Cuties come with 3 different purse patterns and can be made from a jelly roll or scraps!

Thank you June for letting us feature your bag! It turned out great!

Stars on Point

Clotilde has asked us to make a few of our patterns to be kitted and put in their Spring Catalog! We were very excited and humbled by this opportunity and started as soon as the fabric arrived! The first one we worked on is the Stars on Point! They sent us some beautiful batiks from PT Batik Danar Hadi and we paired them with a solid white. The vibrant colors of the batiks stand out amazingly from the white! It is not bound yet but here is the quilt! I was too excited to show it off!

 Amazing quilting done by Kristy Wolf from Wolf Creek Quilting

And see all that snow on the ground! Yup, it is officially cold out! Brrrr!
