SPRING! Even if it is monsoon season outside!

It may be dreary outside but we have lots of  Spring fabrics and Inspiration inside our doors!  This sweet quilt is made with Studio e's new line, "Bunny Tales".  There is also a book panel for $11.50. The yardage is also $11.50.  The complete kit for the quilt includes instructions and backing for $79.95.  I made the book and a coordinating pillowcase, too!

"On the Road Again" is from Wilmington Prints.  Yardage is $11.00.  The panels for the quilt are $7.95.  The panels for the placemats are $3.75 for 2 placemats.  The quilt kit with instructions and backing included is $84.95. 
 Packs of precuts are 24 pieces. 5" squares are $7.75. 
 10" squares are $25.00.  2 1/2" strips are $25.00

 Here is another "E Z Breezy" table runner made with Moda's Poppy Mae line.  The pattern is $9.50.  The fabric kit is $27.25.  It is available in charms, layers and jelly rolls.  Moda's precuts are packaged in quantities of 42 pieces.  Charms are $10.00.  Layers and jelly rolls are $39.00.
 Next up, the placemats that coordinate with the Trailer Quilt.  Still don't know how to get them on the blog in the right order!  Or right side up as you will see farther down!

 And keeping in the Vintage Trailer mode, 
here is the first in a new mystery series from Crabapple Hill...
 ...and more new Crabapple Hill lovelies...

 I used Whistler Studios' Laundry Day fabrics for This and That's sweet little stitchery (pattern $5.00).  It is supposed to be a pillow but I made a wall hanging. I am working on an ironing board cover with the yellow fabric.  That should make ironing more fun!
 Here are more of the Laundry Day fabrics. 
 Upside down as promised, but still ADORABLE!

 Newest to arrive are these "Bee Inspired" fabrics from Moda also available in charms, layers and jellies.  Check out the great FREE projects on Moda's website.

 2017 ROW BY ROW
 A sweet spring bunny designed by Sew Many Prims 
 just in time for Easter!
 Just finished this "String Bean" quilt. The pattern is $4.00.  I made 16 blocks.  The pattern has 36 blocks AND borders.  My sample is about 40" square but you can make it any size.  I used 2 of Moda's "Scrap Bags" and 1 1/4 yds for the backing.  Total cost: 45.00.  A bright and cheery table topper or baby quilt.  Fast and Fun!
Now I have to get serious about designing a block for Shop Hop (LOVE the fabric this year!), and designing my row for Row by Row.  Ideas just keep a-popping!

New Fabrics...New Samples

A basket full of spring delight from  Moda,  "Nanette"
 And more Moda goodness, "Poppy Mae"

 This is a hooded towel made with
 Shannon Cuddle and Shannon terry cloth.

 These are 60" wide flannels, perfect for crib size quilts!

 And here is the new line called "Laundry Day".  I am going to decorate my granddaughter's nursery with this fabric line!

 This is a project I made with 2 Moda Scrap Bags and some Bella Solids.  The scrap bags are $12.95 each.  The pattern is "Anasazi".  

 This is JJ's cradle quilt.  The pattern is called "Betsy's Closet" by Acorn Quilt Company.  The pattern is $10.00.  The kit is $24.95.  The kit does NOT include backing or floss.  When she is no longer in her cradle it will be a wallhanging in her nursery.

 Acorn Quilt Company has a little boy version called 
"Benji's Pockets".  I think I should get started on it SOON!

 Buttermilk Basin has a wool truck for every month. 
 This is the February mat.  The pattern is $9.00.

 Bunny Hop is a pattern from Sweetwater.  
Just waiting to be filled with Easter treats!  The pattern is $8.50

 "LOVE" is a lovely new redwork pillow.  The pattern is $10.00.  The complete kit is $19.95.

 These new fabrics are simply beautiful...so I had to buy them! 
 But I am willing to share...

and the winner is...

 Cindy Amundson is our "Wooly Block" winner.  What a lovely quilt!  She used wooly blocks from Folktales in Lynden, Cotton Pickins in Stanwood, Karen's Quilt Shop in Sequim, Two Thimbles in Bellingham, Pioneer Quilts in Portland, Carriage Quilts in Des Moines, Shibori Dragon in University Place and 
Quilting Mahem in Snohomish.
 Just Arrived!  Woolies Flannels by Bonnie Sullivan used in her awesome new book: 
 A Change of Seasons
I can't wait to start one of these projects!!!

 Here are some of the GREAT new patterns 
in the book!

 Our lives have been very busy this month.  We took a trip to Toronto to celebrate my mother-in-law's 95th Birthday and spent time with family and friend.  The weather WAS frightful and our return flight was delayed.  We finally got back home very weary and the very next day our daughter was brought to UWMC by ambulance from Bellingham because she had gone into early labor.  She was due in February. We were blessed with the safe but very early arrival of our first grandchild, Jocelyn Joi.  They are still in the NICU at UW but doing well.  We are looking forward to their return to Lynden, but know that in the meantime they are in the best possible care. I hope you will understand that I have been a bit distracted but hope to get caught up posting all the beautiful fabrics and fun project ideas that have arrived in the store.  2016 has been a wonderful year thanks to all of you and your continued support.  I think 2017 is going to be even better!

Wishing you the very best in the New Year!
Important bit of information:

 I need snuggling time with my new grandbaby!
