On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me...

What? It's not Christmas time yet. Oh yeah? Well tell that to the fabric manufacturers who always provide us with the holiday fabrics in June and July. So to get things going, this sample was made by Moda's 12 Days of Christmas line and the pattern is the Big EZ. It was really a simple quilt to make and quick too. Hope you enjoy it.

New Classes

Well everyone, it's time for our next round of classes at the store. I'm going to be teaching several things including these three projects. The first is an applique quilt called "Remember Whooo Loves You," and features a darling owl (made from wool - Thanks Beth!). The second is a beginning paper piecing class. I made up this quilt as a seasonal thing; and the third is a cute, quick fabric bowls. I did the basic one and then upgraded to the other one which turned out really nice.

Small creatures

I've been finishing up several projects and making room for some new ones including several new classes I'll be teaching this summer and fall, however, in the midst, Keiko brought me a pattern from Bunny Hill Studios featuring one of her newest bitty pincushions. I love the owls (which are very in vogue right now) so I immediately had to make him and then I thought I would work on the Effie Elephant pattern as well. So here are my two creations. I hope you enjoy them.
