Looks like they are straight from the pages of Pottery Barn

One of our customers decided she needed to use up some of her stash (now there’s a novel idea!). She just cut everything up, added sashing and my, oh, my! what a gorgeous stash buster quilt. For the back she used everything that was left!

The encouragement of a group in an ongoing class brings awesome results!

Marianne finished this gorgeous quilt “Folk Art Bloom” by Buggy Barn in Fran’s Primitive Class. It was simply stunning and the machine quilting was awesome.
Paula took a block of the month from Sue Spargo last year and this is the result. Her work with wools and her decorative stitching is a winner. She has been working in Fran’s Primitive group for some time. Paula also does rug hooking and the pear is her original design.

Are you ready for some football?

Kathy made these quilts with "yellow brick road" pattern - a favorite! She said she's" a Gator by birth, but a bulldog at heart!" It's a great quilt in any school's colors.

Second Saturday Sampler July Show and Tell 2

Pat used the blocks from a Prairie Women Sewing Circle project to make a Table Topper.

With the blocks left over she made a matching runner for her buffet. Very Creative!
This creative group of reproduction scrap style quilters begin a new quarter of classes this Fall.   Look for a group called - Homestead Gathering Class

When Danita finished this Flying Geese quilt from a Jo Morton pattern, she decided it was one of her all-time favorite quilts. We had to agree – it’s beautiful!

Second Saturday Sampler Show and Tell - part one

Remember:  Second Saturday Sampler Event is this Saturday...coplete with parking lot show and tell like this!

Martha made a special baby quilt using a churn dash block with zoo animals in the center. The backing featured more zoo animals. Very cute!

It’s never too late to take great quilt blocks and set them into a quilt! Jeannette used her Second Saturday Sampler blocks from 2010 to make this beauty.
We love stars at Little Quilts, and Sue made a “show stopper”! Very patriotic

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).
