"What will she be when she grows up?"

Although Mary Ellen has retired and closed the Little Quilts retail store…it should be called semi-retirement. She’s been busy redoing her sewing room at home and her rug hooking studio; and has been available for area quilt guild programs. 

Thursday, February 25th she’ll be at the Cherokee Rose Quilt Guild at 7pm with the program “Color Plan your Quilts”. She’ll share how to make beautiful scrap quilts with the addition of ‘Magic Fabrics’.  She’ll bring a trunk show with many Little Quilts, plus LQ books and patterns will be available for sale. They’re also on the website at www.littlequilts.com 

See the link below with info about the guild. Note the name has been changed on the meeting place to the Ike Owens Community Center, formerly Hunter Park Community Center.

Send a comment with a tip on how you arranged your fabric in your sewing room, and we’ll randomly select one to receive  an autographed copy of “Little Memories” and a fat 1/4th of Roswell Mill, the latest of our designs for Henry Glass Fabrics. 

Follow the Henry Glass blog too at www.henryglassfabrics.com for great ideas and see the newest fabric line coming in August “Savannah Garden.".

Calling this year's Saturday Sampler participants:
Last Saturday we had our final 2015 Saturday Sampler gathering. We gave out the fabric packets for December and January along with the finishing directions for ALL the quilts.
Queen Wanda H. did a beautiful job on the "Special Memories" quilt. Directions are included for the 6" sampler in a chain like setting. 

Tricia made hers with batiks and one beautiful fabric for the setting triangles and border. 

Princess Wanda C did the neutral alternate and called hers "Kick it in Neutral" with fused cattails in a strippy setting. Her husband Mickey loves it and is claiming it.

Jackie is working on a beautiful red and white quilt with an Irish Chain style setting block.

If you were unable to attend, please come by before 5pm today 12/19/15) as that's when the Little Quilts retail store will be closing our doors after 17 years.

Stack and Whack in Black and White

Karen came in to help celebrate during our Wall To Wall Retirement Sale. For " Show & Tell", which we love....she brought in a pink and black and white Stack & Whack quilt. Karen loves black and white fabrics with an accent color! She recently purchased a long arm quilting machine and is enjoying learning how to use it, by finishing projects and starting new ones.

Wool hooked show and tell

Is it a rug or a purse?  It is a gorgeous wool hooked purse.  We are impressed with this creation by Chris.

Enjoy your quilts...and ours too...

Grace from North Georgia sent us this picture of her Nativity set displayed on the Log Cabin Table Runner from Little Memories. She purchased from one of our offers in a past email newsletter featuring some of our models we are offering for sale.
 Mary Ellen doesn't want to keep them all on a shelf at home...she loves sharing them with so many of you. Grace is a knitter and knitted that darling set.

Watch the email newsletter for more models being offered this week and next.
