New goodies for the new year!

 Buttermilk Basin has new fabrics and some BEAUTIFUL new wools to share!  And new patterns coming soon.  Pre-felted Wool Fat 1/8ths are $5.00, Fat Quarters are $10.00, 
and it is also available by the yard. 

 G.E. Designs has a new "quilt as you go" table runner.  This is Crossroads.  The pattern is $6.50 and the complete kit with the pattern is $27.50.  The sample is done with Moda fabric 
with a Valentine motif.
 Moda has another beautiful line of fabric called "Chocolate and Roses II"  I made this candle mat, "Welcome Home"  by Shabby Fabrics using the Moda fabric line.
 I also made this quilt from the same group of fabrics.  The pattern is "Open Heart" by Lella Boutique.  The pattern is $9.00.  The complete kit with pattern, fabric, backing fabric and binding is $145.00.  Nikki Crisp quilted it for $195.00.  I chose not to add an outside border and finished it with a 2" muslin edge.
 This is a close up of the quilting and the muslin finish with brown floral print binding.  It turned out SOOO sweet!  Thank you, Nikki!
 This is a table topper and pillow made with an earlier line from Moda's "3 Sisters".  Just LOVE the colors!  
 And here are 3 new patterns from "The Little Red Hen".  They are designed to be pillows but I chose to stitch them on towels. 
 Each pattern is only $3.00

And I just happened to have the perfect fabrics to finish each one!  

I hope you have all gotten a good start on new projects for the new year.  Looks like the weather is going to keep us indoors for a while so if you run out of ideas or fabric head over this way!  
Kori and Tangled Threads and I are dreaming up some fun ideas for Row by Row so stay tuned!

All Through the Night has some of the sweetest new projects...
Bonnie Sullivan has designed patterns with pre-printed fabric-all you need to do is embellish them with wool, embroidery, buttons, beads...
whatever you choose!
First up are her "Winter Snow Bowls"  I have made a banner with them, but the possibilities are ENDLESS!
The pattern comes with six pre-printed scenes for $18.00

 This is a brand new pattern from Cottonwood Creations.  The pattern is $6.00
 Here are more All Through the Night's new patterns.  This one is for 12 ornaments.  This pattern is also $18.00.  SO MUCH FUN!  The rest are at the bottom of the page...because I don't know how to post

 "I Still Love Snow" is a snuggly 40" x 45" flannel quilt made with a panel from Shelley Comisky.  I backed it with Moda's snuggle fabric in blue.  I had to make two because both of my precious grand daughters need one (Shhhh...don't tell them!)!  The kit, including snuggle backing, is $63.50
 These cute fellas are from Cottonwood creations. They are made with wool. 
The patterns are $6.00 each.

fun new projects!

Finally got a chance to start piecing of the "Salem Witches"! I will be using the same fabrics for the border blocks.  I LOVE the way it is turning out!  The fabrics are "Halloweenie" from Bird Brain Designs
 and a few pieces from Crabapple Hill's new
 "Salem Witches" fabric line.

 I think the rick rack adds a special touch of whimsy.

 This is a new tote I made with 100% linen
with lots of pocket both inside and out!

This beautiful wall hanging is from Primrose Lane,   "A Christmas Parade".  The pattern is $9.00. The kit which include all the fabric, pattern, beads and floss is $35.00.
 "Sweet Treats" is a 54 1/2" x 54 1/2"wallhanging using all the "Halloweenie" fabrics.  The fabric kit, including the backing, is $87.50.

 Buttermilk Basin's new "FALL" wool table runner.  The pattern is $9.00.  I have not gotten the kits put together yet.  The centerpiece is made from Poorhouse Designs "Fold and Stitch" wreath pattern.

 And here is Baby J's crib quilt...

I used "Laundry Day" fabrics and a few fabrics from my stash.

start your sewing machines!!!

The l-o-n-g awaited fabrics from Crabapple Hill have finally arrived!  These are the ones I am hoping to add to the Birdbrain Design fabrics to piece "The Salem Witches Quilt Guild" quilt.
 This is the panel. I think it would be fun to put it on the back side of the quilt!  I have the panel in both the black background and the natural background.The fat quarters are $3 each and the panel is $8.00

 This is the fabric pack I am using to finish the"Salem Witches" pattern-a combo of Crabapple Hill fabrics and Birdbrain design fabrics.

 This is not a great photo-too much sunshine! (and Wisteria) It is 
"The Cowboy Life" Quilt. 
Hope you get the general idea!  The pattern is $10.00 and the complete kit, including backing, is $179.95.
 And this is "Lilypad", a new fun pattern from Cottonwood Creations. 
 I thought they would be fun to display with the Witch Quilt. 
 The pattern is $6.00

 "Amish Kinner" is a pattern from Primrose Lane-brings back lots of memories of when we lived amongst the Mennonite communities
 in Ontario, Canada!  
The pattern is $9.00 and the complete kit, including backing, is $110.00.
 I have made some more Fold and  Stitch wreaths in fall colors.  These are so easy to make and always turn out stunning!  The pattern is $9.00

 Here is a sneak peak at one of the Crabapple Hill designs I am working on for the Christmas Holidays.  This is "Grandma's Christmas Kitchen".  So excited to start making Christmas memories with my own Grandchildren this year!  They might be a little too young to help frost the cookies, but I bet they will lick off the beaters from the mixer!  SO Blessed!
