A year in Quilts

Here is the pattern cover for my Tri-County Quilt.  The February and April blocks, as well as the changes I made to create the Canadian flag, will be given away free at Folktales during this weeks' Quilt tour.  The idea for this quilt is that each month you hang a different shop's block on the wallhanging. It would also be fun to design blocks for special a cupcake for birthdays,  or personalized blocks for your own special celebrations.  The pattern for the wallhanging is $15.00.  The blocks from the other 10 stores are not included in the pattern.  They must be collected from the other shops.  I hope you enjoy the tour!  All shops on the tour will be open from 9am to 6 pm this Wednesday through Saturday.  Each of the shops have maps to help you navigate!

Fun new stuff!  A new stitchery pattern by "Simply...Summer"  Fay's Paints.  The pattern is $12.00. Each block is 6" square.  Instead of floss it is done with Sulky Blendables.

 And here is what I want in my Easter basket... lots of goodies from 
Fig Tree Quilts!

 oops, sideways...but still delicious!  Layers,
 Charms and 2 1/2" squares

 New pre-cuts from Kathy Schmidt.  "Round Robin"  Layer cakes and Charm Squares
And my FAVORITE  from Primitive Gatherings "Snowman Gatherings"
Layers and Charms
 The bolts of these lines should be arriving soon... I will keep you posted!

Here is a garden apron I made from the new "Hip Hop Garden" line from Debbie Mumm.
Stop in and pick up some fabric and free pattern to whip up this apron.
Don't forget that the Antique and Craft Show is going on for the next two days.  And on Monday the Tri-County Quilts will be on display.  I am so pleased with mine.  I will post pictures on Monday morning.  I hope you like it, as well!
