Store Samples

More and more new samples just keep being made! The ones here have nearly all been made by different people. Here are some of the latest:

This is a gorgeous sample made from the Botanica II - Spring line. We are making kits of it.

This stunning quilt is a Judy Niemeyer pattern called Indian Summer. We also have kits of this one:


These little guys are "Pin Pals" from a pattern by Indygo Junction:

This is a quick-and-easy strip quilt I made because I wanted to use a really cute stripe from the "Little Bear Counts" line. It just needs to be backed, quilted, and bound. The binding will probably be a nice, bright orange from the line. We don't have kits of this, but can easily cut a kit for you.

This is a sample of the "Majestic Mountain Quilt" by 3 Dudes Quilting. It just uses a Bali pop, 2 extra strips, and some background fabric.

This is a very pretty table topper sample, showing off our Easter/spring fabrics:

 These are tulips from a pattern by the Bigfork Bay Cotton Company. We have several of their patterns and kits, and they are all stunning. They're essentially paint-by-number that uses fabric and fusible instead of paint.

This is another Bigfork Bay pattern. We have the pattern, but the sample isn't at the store. This is one that a friend made and Mom (Delphine) quilted it for her.

...and there are many more inspiring samples in progress!

Pincushion Kits!

Remember this cute little sheep pincushion I made? Well, we just got in a whole bunch of other adorable pincushions from Just Another Button Company! These kits really are great because they have absolutely everything you need except for needle and thread and, in some cases, a little bit of glue. And, like I said, they're adorable.

The kits are not inexpensive, but they are worth every penny. All  the buttons are handmade in the USA, in Illinois, and all the kits are assembled there as well. It's a great way to support a small American business, and their products are great!

Mom just finished making a sample of the "Celebration Cupcake" kit. It's topped with chocolate chips, whipped cream, and a strawberry. It almost looks good enough to eat!

These are the other kits we have:

 There are also kits for "Button Buddy" pincushions. These are super simple and quick to make. You just need to sew a couple of buttons onto a felt ball. I just finished a sample of "Charlie Chick".

These are the other Button Buddy kits we have:

This next one is "La Belle Fleur", and we also have charm packs and jelly rolls for this one.

Last is "Paris Flea Market". We have jelly rolls, layer cakes, charm packs, a fat quarter pack, and an extra wide bolt (the last pink/red one on the right of the picture; it's almost like tapestry fabric)!
