As busy as you all may be today - stop for a few minutes to give thanks! All those things and people that we are so thankful for. I know my plate is overflowing - it has been a busy and full year for me and for my family. All of you who are a part of our quilting family I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support and encouragement throughout this year. Have a wonderful day and long weekend. Travel safe if you are on the road or in the air! See you soon.

Last night..

If you were at the trunk show for Dawn Heese a couple of weeks ago you will remember she said she did not do a lo of prep work for her appliqué - well I tried it...

Maybe a little pointy on the left hand side but I did this in about 10 minutes from cutting to pressing it... No glue - just freezer paper and a needle and thread! 

We did get her books back in if you want to take a look .

Just as the snowflakes begin to fall

We put our new snowflake quilt up.. The snowflakes are all precut and set to be fused straight down onto the body of the quilt. How simple can this be????

Take a look next time you are in the store.  

Our wooly bits club met on Monday

And their first projects are taking shape....

and then this months project...

Just got to love the staple method..

Some of the fabulous work completed by our customers!

Rita was going to stop at the Lori Smith size which is abt 18x 24 but those blocks kept multiplying and here is her finished quilt.. The colors are terrific!

Another of our customers - a fairly new quilter Jahae made this flower garden quilt which is BEAUTIFUL... Lovely mix of blues and taupes... She is now making her Dear Jane... Look for those pictures shortly!!!

The Omaha Quilt Guild

Had their meeting this past Tuesday and the guest speaker was Dawn Heese. She was fabulous... A little wool on cotton (you know how we like that)... She also introduced her use of hand washed hand dyed cotton velvet in her quilts!! Wowee... and we carry the cotton velvet in the store!!! If you missed her books and patterns we will plan to have some for you to take a look at!! 

A little bit of fabric arrived this week ... The full line of Amelia from Jo Morton - and some fun fabric as below...

Busy week....

Last weekend saw me at a Pam Clarke Class at the sewing and quilt expo in Lincoln.. A small show but a great time. Class was great and the vendors at the show were terrific. Thank you to you all!
