Summer Fun with Henry Glass Designers


We love summer here at Little Quilts.  The Fourth of July is a biggie.  We love all things red, white and blue and the opportunity to express our patriotism with fabric.  Also, we get an opportunity to meet some of our out of state fans as they travel down I-75 and take a short side trip off the highway to visit, on their summer trips.
Not only do we have a quilt shop, with all sorts of fabrics by many talented designers but we get a chance to be designers ourselves. The current line of fabric is Little Darlings and it gives our fans many design opportunities.  Take a look at this quilter/stitcher's cleverness.  Sheila took the stitchery designs and colored them in with crayons.  Vintage masterpieces.


You too can make our Little Darlings design.  We have a give-away  to win a bundle of fat quarters of this line of fabric AND a kit to make this quilt...

Just write your comment and we will make a random selection on Monday.  Your email must be associated with an email address so that we can contact you.
We hope you are enjoying the Henry Glass Summer Party blog.  Go visit it today and you will take a gander at Mary Ellen's sewing studio.  (remember she has the Little Quilts Shop as her fabric playground).

The kit is very cute and would be a perfect quilt for my sister to use when she keeps her first granddaughter (my grandniece). I am enjoying visiting the HG designers and the blog hop. Thanks for the giveaway too.
