Stephanie brought her mother’s finished Florence Peto Posey Quilt and we loved it! The appliqués were all broderie perse set with tiny nine-patch alternate blocks. Love the way the quilt was bound.

Look what you can make with a little bunch of scraps and a lot of time

We’ve watched the progress on this quilt for several months and were thrilled when Jeanette brought in the finished quilt! The pattern is from one of Kim Diehl’s books and involves making A LOT of yo-yos. The border evolved when Jeanette didn’t have enough of the fabric she wanted to use so she came up with this idea to “make do” with what she had. Very creative!
Muriel looks like she just came in from a dude ranch!  Actually she has been roping steer  (not!)in the parking lot during Shop Hop (we were a rodea themed store)

Proud Primitive Show and Tell

Susan, who LOVES primitives, is new to the area coming from Louisiana and we were thrilled to see her newly finished quilt top. She used the Blackberry Primitives pattern by Maggie Bonanomi for this wool appliqué masterpiece. Antique buttons make the quilt even more special!

Applique teacher, Anne Anderberg, finished this darling quilt for her new great-grandson. Pattern for this will be available soon!
Anne used a lot of Stonehenge fabric to get the realistic look for her animals.

Spring Quilt Market

Next week Mary Ellen and Muriel will have returned from Spring Quilt Market.  Here is one of their finds.  Stop in and see what else they could manage to bring back with them. 
New pillow designs from Aunt Philly's  Toothbrush Rugs.
They were excited to find the quilt designed by our friend, Karen Mowery with blocks sewn by several Little Quilts' staff members.  Her design is published in a book pulished by Kansas City Star Books.

Gorgeous Photography

Two of Marshall’s quilts were the subject of Myrtie Cope’s photography. Beautiful quilts and gorgeous photography. Wouldn’t this make a beautiful book?

Myrtie’s sister came into the shop looking for help with a quilt for her twin grand-daughters. We think the girls will be snug as bugs in this quilt! So cute!

Hearts Quilt

Charlotte is on her way back to New York, but stopped by to learn how to put a scalloped edge on her quilt. She did a great job with her first scalloped edge project and the scallops are perfect with her beautiful heart appliqué blocks.

Rug Braiding Excellence

Several weeks ago we showed you this Braided Snowgirl, an original project Ann did for a challenge at the Valley Forge Rug Braiding Guild Braid-In. The challenge was to braid something with a weather theme. We’re happy to report that Anne won First Place at the Braid-In! We were certain that such creativity would not go unrewarded! There are five basic rug braiding techniques and Snowgirl showcases all five techniques which made it a favorite with the judges. Way to go, Ann!
