New Books!

Look at the books we've just received in from Martingale. Stop by the store to grab them before they're gone!
 Large-Block Quilts - 16 Quick and Easy Quilt Patterns by Victoria L. Eapen 
There are some beautiful projects in this book that would be easy to whip together when you need a quilt for a last minute gift!

 quilts from sweet jane - easy quilt patterns using precuts by Sue Pfau
Do you have any pre-cuts you haven't found a home for yet? This book could be for you! These patterns could even use fabric cuts leftover from a previous project; I know...of course none of us could possibly have any left over fabric in our stashes! :-)

 Scrap-Basket Beauties - Quilting with Scraps, Strips, and Jelly Rolls by Kim Brackett
This book truly will help you find a home for those unruly fabric stashes! There are all kinds of tips and patterns for creating beautiful scrap quilts.

Stop by the store this week, these books won't last long!

A little vintage table topper or wall hanging!

This fabric has almost disappeared in the store but the model is made and kitted front back and binding!! And we could not help but fall in love with this pattern - designed by Lynn Kahl a local designer it is just as cute as it can be!

March 8th - brights are here for Spring!

Our newest English paper pieced quilt using hombre fabric - the machine quilting on this quilt adds a rich feeling to this quilt! These quilts have been kitted and are available in the store and on line.

March 8th - brights have come to More Sew For You!

Even as we speak the birds are chirping outside and the snow has almost gone - so perhaps the timing is just right to show you these new models which are up and in the store as we speak! Great piecing and equally lovely machine quilting!
