I'm back.... where do I begin?

I've fallen behind on my blogging and of course, as soon as I did, a million "happenings" popping up at the store.  So let's play a little catch up shall we?

Stop by to the shop to see this fabulous trunk show! All the quilts are from the book "Quilt Collection" from That Patchwork Place and are designed by your favorite designers. Call the store 770-578-6727 if you're interested in a kit for any of these quilts.

We have some great new fabric that just came in. “Stonehenge” from Northcott Fabrics really looks like ancient stones in many beautiful colors. I’m planning to use them in some appliqué blocks, but they will look great in pieced quilts, too.

You, too, can have a tote bag just like this one for your next trip to the beach or lake. The bag is from a printed panel so it’s very easy to make. We also have the cutest coordinating fabrics with footprints in the sand and flip flops that would be great for lining the bag.

How about some show n tell.....
Long-time customer Billie Crumley drove all the way from Alabama to share this masterpiece with us. Included on the quilt are some old family pictures. What a crazy quilt treasure for her family!

Another stunning appliquéd quilt from Billie Crumley!

Karen Dixon completed this gorgeous quilt from the Vintage Moments pattern by Sharon McCloskey. Absolutely beautiful!

Joy Smith (on the left) used local designer Becky Black’s (on the right) “Snips & Snails” pattern and turned it into this cute little quilt for a boy. Very clever!

Carolyn Shea read in the Little Quilts newsletter that there would be a gift for those bringing in Little Quilt heart quilts. We were so surprised when Carolyn brought in this cute quilt! It’s made from a vintage 1980’s Little Quilt kit that she purchased at the Village Quilt Shop in Stone Mountain. Carolyn brought in the quilt and the original packaging. And it’s FINISHED! Yea!!!

Did someone say Civil War Tribute???
When we were in Paducah we saw this finished Civil War Tribute quilt. For those of you in the Civil War Block of the Month, keep working on those blocks -- this is your goal! It’s a stunner!

Quilting for ConKerr Cancer
Debbie Wall, her daughter Amber, and her grand-daughter Sydney brought in 150 pillowcases to be donated to ConKerr Cancer. The pillowcases were made by their church in Kennesaw. Don’t forget we’re still collecting for the American Patchwork & Quilting One Million Pillowcase Challenge. Debbie’s pillowcases have been added to the count and we’d like to encourage all of you to help reach this goal by making pillowcases, too!

Amber Smow and her daughter Sidney are members of the same church group as Debbie Wall. Not my daughter and granddaughter.
