Christmas Stocking Kit - Cute and Easy

If you’re looking for a quick and easy Christmas stocking idea, this is for you. These were made from a panel – what could be easier? Look for “The Great I Am” fabric line from Henry Glass, select coordinating fabrics for the stocking backs and linings, go home and sew them up with plenty of time left before Christmas!

Stonehenge fabric comes alive

We are all so excited for Little Quilts teacher, Dena’s son who graduated from college with a degree in geology. He’s on his way to Utah this summer for graduate school and this quilt is going with him! I can’t think of anything more appropriate for a geologist than a quilt made from Stonehenge fabric.

Daisy Dew

Marcia brought it this quilt and we were all blown away! The pattern is “Daisy Dew” from the book,  
 Quilts For All Seasons and Some For No Reason by American Jane. We had this quilt in the shop for a trunk show several years ago and Marcia bought the pattern at that time. She took several of our classes to perfect her sewing skills before attempting the quilt, and we think she mastered the techniques beautifully!

Little Quilts Are Timeless

We flipped through one of our favorite quilt magazines, Quiltmania, and in an article about doll quilts..."what do we see",  but the quilt Honeybees from the pattern by the same name.  It is the one on the iron bed.
