Stash Report

You might remember back that a couple of my stash reports have come via Diane.  Sadly Diane has been cleaning out her mother’s fabric after she passed away.  What a job?!  I remember going through my parents things and it’s just a hard job…there’s the sentimental things and the “what were thinking things”…There’s the I wish I could keep that things and the things that bring back a flood of memories.  Going through my parents things was hard and such a process.  Luckily I was blessed with good siblings that were really helpful.

As Diane sorted she thought of me.  I appreciate it lots.  It seems it was time to sort through the pinks…as there are LOTS of pinks.  I love it.

I opened the box when the childcare kiddos were here and they all were in love with the Cat in the Hat fabric…me I was thinking of the pinks and thinking of making Bonnie Hunter’s Zuckerwatte quilt from her String Fling book. (photo courtesy of Quiltville)  The pinks would be perfect.  This quilt has been one I’ve always thought to make….

Thanks so much for thinking of me Diane.  The fabrics are wonderful.  I hope to honor your mom by making something wonderful with the fabrics.

Today I am hooking up with Patchwork Times.

Extra, Extra Read All About It!

Heads up ladies and gents…

We have news.  We have a quilt that was published in a calendar…the new American Patchwork and Quilting 2016 calendar.  We were so excited when we were asked to submit a design.

APQ 2016 Calendar Small (2)
We were even more excited when we were told that our quilt made the front cover of the calendar.  Yep..that quilt right there on the cover is ours!

Here’s other news…we have put the calendars in out online store.  You can follow this link to purchase them.

What’s really neat about the calendar is that in not only has great quilts pictured for each month, but it also has a great insert that has the directions to make each one of the quilts.  Here is the January picture.  I took a picture so that you can see that the complete directions are provided for the quilt too.

In the photo above you can see the directions for the February quilt.  Below is the picture.  I love the quilt!

APQ-Calendar-2015-2

I’ve shown the calendar to a couple friends of mine and the quilt below is a real favorite….I have to say, it’s a favorite of mine too.

APQ-Calendar-2015-3

It’s a tough call though.  I always love patriotic quilts and the one pictured below…WOW!  I love it.

APQ-Calendar-2015-4

I’m not showing all of the calendar photos.  You’ll just have to purchase one to see it all…but trust me, they are good and for those of you who like more traditional quilts, this calendar has them!

If you have a quilting friend it would be a great gift…we only have a limited supply at this point and aren’t sure how many more we’ll be able to purchase so although you probably aren’t shopping for a 2016 calendar, it might be a good idea to get one now.  We worked to price the calendars less that the suggested retail price so that with shipping, they are close to the same price you would pay for them in town (we’re frugal gals too!)  You can completely avoid shipping charges by ordering three calendars and/or books.

Orders can be placed here through our online store if you’d like to pay using Paypal or you can use this Order-Form and send it to us snail mail.  If you’re ordering and paying through Paypal some people have had trouble not realizing that to check out they simply need to click on their cart on the left hand column.

We hope to have some of these calendars left when we host the retreat at the end of July but as I said, we only have a limited number of calendars and aren’t sure if we can get more.

Anyway…we are so excited to not only be calendar girls but cover girls as well!!

Today we’re sharing our accomplishment at  Confessions of a Fabric AddictCrazy Mom Quilts, and Link a Finish Friday.
