Almost evey day new Christmas fabric is coming in. We're all stitching like crazy to get samples done. We have at least three different snowman panels this year - each one cuter than the next. As always, we've added our own special touches so that you can choose from easy, but unique, kits.
While they can be used in many ways, all will fit on a door. Several years ago I heard a great idea for those of you who have someone in a nursing home or assisted living. A customer made a series of small seasonal quilts for her father. Instead of hanging them in his room, she put them on the door - staff and other visitors sould stop in to talk with him about the changing quilts.

Linda's nephew Luke just completed this Iowa sports quilt. He used Hawkeye and Cyclone fabric and the gold and purple is for the Panthers. He really did a great job. I guess the talent runs in the family. You've see some of Linda's fabulous quilts on this blog before.

Elaine came to pick up the quilt we quilted for her. She used a pattern froom the cover of American Patchwork and quilting and did a great job. Wouldn't you know the battery was dead on my camera? Thanks for Mary Lou for sending this photo to me.
Fabric for Christmas 2011 is starting to arrive. If you'd like to see it and we haven't gotten it on the floor yet, just ask.

A few weeks ago, Carol and I decided we needed a new flannel sample and kit. We came up with Rock Star - perfect, we thought, for a dorm room.

When Karen saw it, she decided we also needed something for a girl's dorm and used our pattern for Nest, using mostle Valerie Wells' fabric.

It's alsways fun to see the same pattern in different interpretations.

Here's Janets second block for her crazy quilt. I told her we'll want to see them all.

Because Ragbrai will come through Elk Horn in July, we worked hard to find some bicycle fabrics. These three have recently come in. The aqua one is even flannel - how about pajama bottoms! The others would make good pillow cases or tote bags.
