New fabric arrived today!

Today we received 25 new bolts of batiks and 9 more bolts of reds and whites. We are all stocked up, ready to start cutting blocks for the 2010 $5 quilt. All we have to decide is the pattern. We will keep the first one simple, maybe even a nine patch.

The batiks are fun too. Black with hot pink, black with lime green, all sorts of colors, ready for you to come see.

Getting Ready

We've been busy getting the store ready for this weekend. Vicky and I spent yesterday, re-hanging the store. Tuesday, we will work on the classroom. Helen and Jane helped finish unpacking and Vicky got the postage on the post cards and got them in the mail.

Our 2010 Block of the Months were revealed today. We have three to choose from, or you can participate in all three. The $5 club will be a choice of red/white or black/white, with an ocean waves center medallion, a border of seminole piecing and an outside border of flying geese. The traditional block of the month is an all-inclusive club which includes borders, binding, backing and batting. The 3rd club will use Vicky's "Garden Nouveau" book and will be all applique. These selections include options for all.

Come and see the shop in all of it's Christmas glory!
