Mardell finished this new sample, Union Blue. It's really a striking design. Of course we are making kits.

Carol just finished these two new Criss Cross quilts. The'll make great table toppers or small wall quilts and take very little time to make. The pattern is a good one when you just don't want to cut up a spectacular fabric.
Shar is starting work on our quilt for Runaway Quilter's Retreat. This is our twentieth retreat and will be on January 14 and 15 2011.

Halloween is almost here. Just in time we're having a 50% off sale on Halloween fabric, patterns and kits. This cute little fusible with handmade button is easy enough to finish for this Halloween, but you can always put some things away for next year.
Shar Pam and I planned new samples and kits today in between customers. We strive to keep all the walls full of great samples and we're almost out of kits for several samples.
I'm really proud of all the new samples we have right now for baby and kids quilts.

Carol's fun new throw is made from flannel and chenille - nice to cuddle up in this Winter or plan ahead for a graduation gift. It's fun to mix textures in a quilt. Think about adding Minkie or Cuddle to flannel.

Karen just finished this flannel throw using Moda's new Moonlight Lodge collection. It has to be the softest flannel ever - just like velvet. I'll bet the men on your list would love it.

I just finished the last doll quilt in our fourth series. It's been fun.

We've had a fun few days with lots of quilters stopping by on their way to or from the AQS Show in Des Moines. There are still some good bargains left in the Retreat Center.

Sue stopped by to choose borders for her sampler. It's going to be a real keeper. I love making quilts with lots of different fabrics and blocks.The piecing never really gets boring and it's certainly not boring when you're finished either.

We spent yesterday getting everything ready in the shop and retreat center for our big sale the rest of this week. We have $1, $2, $3 and $4 a yard fabric and half price kits, jelly rolls and charm packs in the center. In the shop, selected kits are 25% off.

Remember, you don't have to be attending the show in Des Moines to get in on the sale.
