Kit of the Month



"Not Your Grandmother's Flower Garden" Kit
 


Holly Holderman of Lake House Fabrics and Kimberly Jolly of It’s Sew Emma have teamed up to bring you fabrics and patterns that are any quilters DREAM! They’ve taken all the hard work away and created something new that you just have to see!

Everyone is familiar with panels – but this new fabric line, Sunrise Studio, takes that concept to a whole new level.  The design potential is limitless once you understand the basic idea. These darling, complicated looking quilts can be created in just a few hours with this new line.  ”Not your Grandmother’s Flower Garden” is created with just four fabrics: The center hexies are cut from a pre-printed fabric. That scalloped border is sew simple because it is cut from the pre-printed fabric as well.  There are four rows of scallops – one for each side of the quilt and quarter circles so you can piece a perfect corner.  How easy is that? The scallop adds the softness of a gentle curve – but you are still binding a straight edge!

The inner check border is pre-printed as well.  Just cut it from the checkerboard fabric. The middle periwinkle dot border adds interest and also acts as a “fudge factor”.  The size of the quilt can be adjusted at this point to fit the scallops.  Oh so simple… Four fabrics and less than four hours is all you need to finish this crib or lap quilt!

We have the red border and scallops kit available for just $62.98.
Pattern included.





The Next Class on the Horizon


"Fractured Paint Box" 

Fractured Paint Box is a beginning Judy Niemeyer paper piece quilt . All of our new classes will begin in January and February. Linda Leake, who has taught many of Judy Niemeyer pattern classes, will be teaching this class. Anyone interested in the class can sign up on line or by calling the store. We have two classes scheduled consisting of three sessions for each class from 10:00am - 4:00pm each day. Wednesday Classes; April 1st, 8th and 15th or Saturday Classes; April 11th, 18th, and 25th.  The fabric, from Hoffman Fabrics, uses a Judy Niemeyer Bali Pop which contains 48 different fabric strips instead of the usual 40. We have these in stock now in both Group 1 and Group 2 color ways. This one is going to be fun!
