Happily Ever After

I can't believe we're already at the end of October!  Here's what's new around the shop -

Happily Ever After from Riley Blake!

I love the little princesses and the little pink-flagged castle - so sweet!

This main print is adorable as well.  I can just see it used as a border on a quilt!

Here's a view of the Happily Ever After booth at Quilt Market last week-

Trick or Treat

What a great time we had a the shop hop last week!  It was so fun to meet so many of you and hear what you are working on.  

Now the countdown to Halloween has begun - 1 week left!  There's still time to put together a few more projects to get your house ready for the big day.  We are out of kits for this cute wall hanging, but the pattern is still available.  This would be great hanging in your entry way or decorating your table top for this last week of October!

We also have just a couple more of these Monster Quilt Kits.  So, so, cute!  
(The finished quilt measures 43" x 51")

Right now all of the Halloween fabrics are $3 off per yard so it's the perfect time to stop by the shop and get the fabric you need to make some trick-or-treat bags or a spiderweb table topper (instructions for both are free here on our blog!  Click on the "tutorials" tab.)

Grow With Me

I wanted to show you these cute charm packs we have in the shop right now:

Fabric Mill: Grow With Me Charm Pack

It's a Moda line called Grow With Me.  If you are in need of a quick & easy baby gift then this is the charm pack you  need.  Pair one charm pack with a 1/4 yard of binding and a yard of fabric for the backing and you can whip this up in no time:
(measures about 27" x 31")

Fabric Mill: Grow With Me Charm Quilt

If you prefer the look of sashing between the blocks, then here's a version for you:

Fabric Mill: Grow With Me Charm Quilt

This one would finish at about 38" x 43"

The sashing between blocks are cut at 2" wide.  So you would need 5/6 yard of sashing fabric.  For binding you need 3/8 yard and the backing will require 1-1/3 yard.  

Come in and grab a charm pack for a quick finish-it-this-weekend project!
