Memorial Day Weekend: Get Ready at Little Quilts

The two quilts shown here are from the book "Patriotic Little Quilts" written by Little Quilts. One is "Stars and Stripes" (24" x 30"); the other is "Honor and Glory" (34" x 46"). This book is now out of print but we still have some copies available in the shop. Memorial Day is coming, so reserve your copy:

Another great quilt for Memorial Day is Little Quilts' design "America"(35" x 35"), which is in their book "Celebrate". We have only a few copies of this book left. There are lots of great small quilts in this book along with some decorating ideas. A great book to add to your wish list:

Betsy is a wool cat designed and made by Alice Berg. The features are embroidery. This has been a very popular item. Pattern is available at $8.50.
