Hometown Harvest...one of my faves from Quilt Market and it is done!  I chose to do the animals, star and heart appliques in wool.  Nikki Crisp did an awesome job quilting it!  The pattern is $18.00.  Still working on the kits, so I am not sure what the kit price will be, but the backing is a beautiful fall leaf flannel print from Moda.

 Made a little elephant mobile with a pattern from Indygo Junction.  Also made a darling elephant quilt out of the same fabrics.  I will post a pic of that next time!  This pattern includes several other animals and is $12.00.
 One of Crabapple Hill's new patterns.  Seemed fitting!  
The pattern is $10.00.
 Sew Cherished "Trick or Treat" patternis $10.00.

 Another pattern from Sew Many Prims.  I made him last year but                         this year he has a sled instead of a tree!                          The Woodland Snowman pattern is $9.00.
 "Batty" from Cottonwood Creations.  Pattern - $6.00
 Another Red Button Co. pattern, "Snowman Love".  Heather Mussard shared this beautiful sample to let me hang in the shop.  Great job, Heather!  Thank you so much!..

Row by Row and more!


This sweet project is from Red Button quilt Company.  I used Minnick and Simpson's "Farmhouse Reds"  by Moda.  LOVE this fabric line.  I really considered keeping the entire line for myself.  The pattern is $12.00 and the kit with pattern is $26.95.  The foundation papers for English paper piecing are included.

This is a joint effort for Row by Row 2018.  Kori's Fabric Creations is the 18" square block on the left, then Folktales block, and Tangled Threads' block on the right.  The kit comes with directions and fabric to make it as the center block or a block all on it's own.  "The Hills are alive with the Sound of Music..."  My favorite rendition of this classic musical is Leavenworth's summer production, done in the outdoors surrounded by mountains.  SO worth the trip to Leavenworth.  And then there is the hiking, 
the beer, the brats...
License plates are $5.00.  The mini plate are $1.00.

This was one of my favorite things at Quilt Market.  The pattern is $10.00.  The kit with pattern is $39.95. 
 The beads add great dimension.


This is a beautiful new fabric line from Timeless Treasures.  
I can hardly wait to get started on the quilt project! I might have to make the wallhanging for each of my kids.

 Here is a smattering of some of the new fabrics that have arrived this week...


 Here is Folktales' block for
