 Another one of my absolute favorite wallhangings or crib quilt - Animal Whimsy.  Size 42" x 54".  Kits available for $99.50 which includes $30.00 pattern.  
A beautiful wool project for the upcoming season!  Kits - $54.00.  Stand also available.

Dr. Seus!  Who doesn't love Dr. Seus.  I received some bolts from the "Celebrate Seus" line of fabrics.  I just had to make something from it so I made a pillowcase.  My twin grandsons get comments wherever they go when they wear their Thing 1 and Thing 2 shirts.

"Vintage Tin" has arrived!

 Crabapple Hill's newest pattern "Vintage Tin" has just arrived.  A great "man quilt" with it's vintage cars, oil cans and license plates.  Looks great in the black and whites.
I already started with my first block.  I hope to have my sample done for the quilt shows coming up but that will mean some major stitching in the next few weeks.  It's a great project to work on during the olympics.
I am not using the Lucien fabric line but a combination of fabrics that I have.  Lucien fabrics are very unreliable as far as delivery time.  I may get one bolt and then may not get the others for 3 months or more and I'm excited  to start it right away.  Patterns are $28.00.  The pattern suggests using Cosmo floss 895(dark grey) which I have available in spools or skeins.
Let me know by e-mail if you are interested.  I will try to post it on the website.  My website is having a major overhaul which I hope will be completed in a month.  It should make things alot easier on your end as well as mine.

September Wallhanging

 One month till September! Time sure does go by quickly.  Here is the wallhanging for September-Calendar of Quilts.  I didn't add the "ABC" (personal choice) but the fabric for them is in the kit.  As long as someone is still interested in joining , I keep cutting more kits so if you would still like to participate, let me know.  Info is under "Block of the Month on the website.
I finished the companion Monster tooth fairy pillow for boys (or girls).  The pattern is in the book "Curiosities and Mischief" available for $22.00.  Kits for the pillow also available for $4.50 each.
