T-Shirt Quilt

I finally finished my t-shirt quilt!  I think I started this around Christmas last year, got it mostly done this summer, and finally got it completely done last week!  (Mom did the majority of the quilting)

Also, just a reminder, the shop will be CLOSED tomorrow and Saturday.

Sale Area

I just wanted to point out that our sale area is pretty full of great fabrics right now!  Better yet, everything in the sale area is 50% off the original price all this week!  We're closed on Friday and Saturday for inventory, so that means the sale runs from today until Thursday.  Also, if you finish a bolt of non-sale fabric this week, it's 25% off, instead of our normal 20% off.

Our sale fat quarters are just about overflowing!

More New Fabrics!

Just thought I'd put up some more new fabric for you to enjoy looking at :)

Just for fun, here are some pictures of various Christmasy things around the store.

This is a nativity set that Mom made years ago.

Mom decorated the wreath with spools of thread.

Mom made this sample of some wool trees we have kits for.

We have several trees made out of fat quarters.  Wouldn't they be perfect for a gift exchange?

And this is the Christmas puppy I made.

Sewing Circle II

I just thought I would put up a couple pictures of some quilts that the ladies brought to the Prairie Women's Sewing Circle II meeting last Saturday.  They were all great.  I love show-and-tell.

This is the project they were all to work on after the last meeting:

And this quilt was made by Margie, and we all liked it a lot:

New Fabrics!

Once again, we have lots of great new fabrics!  First up is one I liked so much that I immediately made a wallhanging out of it.

I also really like this line:

We also got in some great batiks.

This is just pretty:

...and I like these snowflakes:

Demo Daze!

On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of this week, we will be participating in Demo Daze!  
Cousin's Quilt Shop of Bellaire and Hearts to Holly Quilt Shop of Charlevoix are also participating, and the hours are as follows:
Thursday, December 1; 10 am – 6 pm
 Friday, December 2; 10 am – 6 pm
Saturday, December3; 10 am - 4 pm
At all three shops, there will be demos, special sales, treats, and give-aways!  We are selling "gift tags" for $1. Visit all 3 shops, get your tag stamped at each one and you’ll be eligible for a Bernina give-away! A BERNINA 215 Sewing Machine, valued at $1099, will be given to one DAZED shopper! 
Here at Delphine's I know that one of the specials will be "buy one get one 50% off" for pillowcase, 10-minute table runner, and easy striped table runner kits.  I've been having fun making a lot of those kits, and I thought I'd put up pictures of a few of them.

First are the 10-minute table runners, which become 15-minute table runners when you add the accent strip:

...and these are some of the pillowcases:

Remember, if you bring in a fun quilt/project, chances are good that Mom will ask if we can take a picture of it and put it on our blog ;)

This is a block of the month that Cheri Clum, a quilter from Alpena, did from another shop.  She also has some cute gingerbread patterns that we should have a sample of and be selling later.

New Fabrics!

Once again, we have lots of new fabrics!

First, I love this one.  We have a great book panel that goes with it.

We also have some new farm stuff:

This panel makes an apron:

New orientals...

This is Moda's Cattails & Clover line:

...and these are some neat blenders:
