Hello Everyone!!

I must tell you more about the Shop Hop blocks and Quilts.  Each shop has designed an autumn themed block.  When you visit each of the shops on the hop, you will receive a free pattern for that shop's block.  Fabric kits may be purchased at the shop so that you can use the same fabric and colors as the shop's design.  Also, each shop has designed a quilt that features all six blocks from the six shops on the hop.  You may view each quilt when you visit that shop and finishing kits with the pattern will be available for purchase.  Each shop will have a different setting so you can decide which one you like best and purchase that finishing kit.

Delphine's quilt is shown below.  Her block is the maple leaf block and is repeated 4 times in the quilt.  She decided to create a smaller quilt rather than a bed size one - just perfect for covering your legs and feet while sitting in your favorite easy chair and watching your husband rake leaves.  (hee-hee)

Another bonus of Delphine's design is that by purchasing the finishing kit, you could make a table runner using 3 or 4 of her blocks.

So, without further ado, here is Delphine's creation...


As expected, the new church was completed just the other day and the neighborhood families are looking forward to Sunday services soon.  The stain-glass windows will reflect the sunlight in the morning.

See you next week with information about Delphine's Quilt Shop's ANNIVERSARY SALE.  The sale starts on Thursday, October 4th through Saturday, October 6th.  It's been 4 wonderful years here at Delphine's and we know you won't want to miss this great party.  By the way, the Gaylord Quilt Guild will have their spectacular quilt show on Friday and Saturday (October 5-6) at Treetops Resort, just down the road apiece from Delphine's.  See you all soon and...

Coming soon...All Around the Neighborhood

Looks like a little cabin in the woods...wonder if they will get any neighbors?  Tune in next week (or sooner) to see if anyone moves in next door...

In another corner of the shop, you will find yourself thinking about the magical season of CHRISTMAS.  Peggy Stasko made this sample and Cathy Hughes quilted it for us.  The pattern is called "Joyful" and it was made with Kate Spain's JOY fabric.  It makes us feel all warm and happy when we walk by it!  Come in and see it for yourself.  Christmas is only 3 1/2 months away and you know how quickly that time will go by. We have lots to projects to please all the people on your gift list.
