Turn your fabrics into rugs....

Jackie teaches a great class on making toothbrush rugs, and one of her students brought in her finished rug! If you’d like to make one of these very durable rugs, check the newsletter for Jackie’s next class.


Marshall brought in another beautiful top that he just finished. He used up scraps of 72 different batiks to achieve this rainbow of colors. Eye candy!

2011 Second Saturday Sampler Results

Julie and Madelyn both finished their 2nd Sat. Sampler quilts from 2011. They both came up with their own setting ideas for their quilts and this is a good example of how versatile and unique sampler blocks quilts can be. You have to look at these quilts very closely to recognize they both used the same blocks!

Block Swap Results

Carol Ann was finally able to use her Bow Tie blocks from the Bow Tie Block exchange we did several years ago when she found the perfect border fabric in our sale section! So cute!

Baskets of Hope - keep on sewing

Bonita brought in lots of basket blocks for the Baskets of Hope campaign which began during Shop Hop. Each of her blocks serve as an entry in the drawing for the Janome Sewing Machine and Sew Steady Table. Bonita brought brightly colored baskets to use in quilts for children’s charities, but you can also make red/white/blue baskets for Wounded Warriors, or pink baskets for breast cancer research charities. It’s not too late to enter – all entries must be in by June 30 and each block you turn in counts as an entry. Each shop in the Shop Hop will be sponsoring sewing days during the summer to turn all the blocks into quilts, so check our newsletter to find the dates we’ll be sewing here at Little Quilts. Winner of the grand prize will be announced in August. Working together we CAN make a difference!
This block is from the Intown Quilters pattern.  They make this quilt. CUTE~

Quilter's can Knit and Knitters can Quilt

After eight years of working on it, Debbie has finished her Noah’s Ark quilt. Finished is so good! Some of you may recognize Debbie from The Whole Nine Yarns knit shop in Woodstock. You may also recognize the Noah’s Ark pattern as it is one of the Little Quilts booklets which, by the way, is on currently on sale!
