Spring is almost here!

Here are some fresh new pictures of some of the newest products and samples at Folktales.   
This is a quilt made using a layer cake from Sandy Gervais' "Chance of Flowers" fabric line and a few fat quarters from other lines.  The pattern is from 
"It's So Emma" called Sunbeams.

 An apron for mom and one for her daughter.
 This is a new pattern from Buttermilk Basin.  The entire project is made from wool.  The blocks are interchangeable for each month.  The base has a place for your scissors and pins and needles.  That pattern is $9.00.  The monthly patterns are $6.00 each.  The one on display is February.
This one is for April
Here are Bunny Hill's new fabrics.  They have been released early to accommodate their newest Block of the Month program pictured below.
 I embroidered a Teddy Bear Quilt and used the browns for the 
setting and borders.  It is getting machine quilted.  As soon as I get it 
back I will post some pictures.

It's an advent calendar!
 Here are some fun new flannels from Marcus Fabrics.  Only $8.00 a yard!

 This is the Block I designed for the Tri-County 2015 Quilt Tour "Farm to Market"  The event runs from March 26th to 28th, 9 am to 6 pm.
 These are some pictures of the quilt I designed using the blocks from 7 of the shops.  Unfortunately I never received a block pattern from Aunt Mary's shop.  The following photos are of sections of the quilt. The tractor is not from any of the shops.  It is a pattern from "Counted Quilts" and retails for $10.00.  
The peas and carrots are from Folktales' block and the ears of corn 
are from The Quiltmaker's Shoppe.
 These are the peppers from Calico Country.
 The barn is Fabric-Etc.s' block.  I enlarged it and used
 Keepsake Cottage's block for the barn door, Two Thimbles' block is 
for blueberries but I turned them into sunflowers growing out of
 Tangled Threads' spool block, 
which I used as flower pots.

 This is a picture of my finished quilt.
 Yesterday the 2015 Western Washington Shop Hop
 fabric samples arrived in the mail.
 Here is a preliminary sketch idea I have for an embroidery pattern
 to use with the fabrics.
This is the latest Crabapple Hill Designs quilt, "Aunt Ruthie's Farm Stand".  I thought it went along well with the "Farm to Market" theme.  It is made with a pre-printed panel that is embroidered and then pieced with the coordinating line of fabrics from Red Rooster.  Love the canning jar prints!
Below are some close ups of the embroidery.  I was trying to take photos outside today in the sunshine but the wind kept blowing so they aren't very straight or centered, but you get the idea!

Lot's of fun-and NO TRACING REQUIRED!

I hope you have a chance to stop in and check out some of the fun new fabrics and patterns.  The pictures really do not do them justice.  I have several items getting quilted right now and will post them as soon as I get them back and bound.  Next week is the Antique and Craft Show at the Northwest Fairgrounds.  I have 2 free tickets for the first person who reads this and sends me an email mentioning my blog to  The following week is the Tri-County Quilt Tour.  Lots of fun things happening!  If there is anything I can help you with or questions I can answer please contact me.  Phone 360-354-0855 or send an email.  Hope you are enjoying all the sunshine!  Happy Spring!
