Trunk Show Arrives and Silver Thimble Class

Little Quilts is welcoming a wonderful new trunk show from Kim Diehl that features three divine quilts from her book of quilt patterns and recipes "Simple Seasons" ($29.95).

On the left above is Kim's Country Wedding Ring: wreaths of posies that encircle checkerboard blocks in cheerful country colors. On the right is Kim's Liberty table topper: celebrates the freedoms enjoyed by us all.

Quilt above is Duck Duck Goose: a scrappy lap quilt. The Simple Seasons book (pictured below) has 13 projects using simple patchwork and applique techniques, from full-size quilts to a doll quilt to a table runner and also includes favorite recipes. Be sure to stop in to see this great trunk show.

Aren't these yo-yo flowers perched on a picket fence irresistible? You can make this pattern from Silver Thimble (see below).

It's called "Pickets & Posies" and is the next Silver Thimble class at Little Quilts, Saturday, June 7th; see class descriptions via the link on the right. Spaces are still available in this class. If you cannot take the class, you may still purchase the pattern and kit (just look at that pretty color combination below in the kit! includes the rick rack too of course, see it peeking out?) for $52.95 (pattern is $8.50, kit is $46.95; class members get a 15% discount on kit).
