A quilt kit for the Utes

Our BYU quilt kits are quite popular and we’ve been getting requests for a Ute quilt kit as well – here you go!  I had fun gathering these fabrics up and even though I’m a BYU alum, I do love a great stack of red/black/white fabrics!

Utes quilt and kit available from The Fabric Mill

The kit includes the fabrics shown above, and makes a quilt that measures 55” x 64”.  Here’s the original quilt to show as an example:

Things are always changing!

Well we all made it through January ok, didn’t we?  There were a few days of rough weather, but we're already in to February and it's rolling along quickly!  Don’t worry, there’s still time to get those projects done in time. 

Since I showed you the Valentine Display here and here we have added even more to the display.  Things are always changing around here at the Fabric Mill! 

First of all, this adorable burlap heart wreath is adding it’s charm.  I love seeing new uses for the printed burlap that we have in stock.  This would be a quick d├ęcor project!

We also added another sweet Valentines quilt to the hutch-

valentine quilt - gray, red, pink and white

The quilt pattern calls for rows of raw edge appliqued circles, but the very talented Hailey swapped out one of the circles for a sweet red heart – very clever!

I love when unique details like this are added to quilts!

The pattern for the quilt comes from the Geared For Guys book by Emily Herrick which we keep in stock!
