Quilt Calendar 2010

The new Quilt Art Calendar is out for 2010. This is a beautiful engagement calendar for keeping track of those important appointments. Klaudeen Hansen has found some of the most beautiful quilts from quilters all over the nation and has featured a different quilt each time you turn the page. I had the pleasure of machine quilting one of my favorites for Pat Current of Apple Valley, MN. Her beautiful Mariner's Compass quilt was chosen to grace the pages for the week of March 29th through April 4th. Congratulations Pat! The calendar comes with a spiral binding so it lays flat and is printed with 7-day spreads. It also has plenty of room to write notes. This would make a great gift for any quilter or for yourself.

These cute bags have just been added to our website. They are made from recycled water bottles and you can recycle them again!
They are great for lunches or used as gift bags. You can wipe them clean and there is a inner pocket for a beverage.

Love Antique Quilts!

Oh my gosh, I love antique quilts! I just recently purchased this quilt top off ebay! It is in perfect shape. I am also a huge fan of scrap quilts!, of course, it said buy me all over it. I love to sit and look at all the wonderful fabrics. I also appreciate how the quilters back then always made do with what fabric they had by piecing their scraps together as you can see by the close up picture. I need to do this more often, but as a quilter we always love that excuse to run out and buy more fabric.

I just got in lots of new patterns by Bonnie Blue Quilts. These are great patterns to use up some scraps and if you love reproduction will find them twice as nice.
