The Newest Happenings

If you're looking for this week's giveaway go here.

We are rearranging the store to make room for all the new fabrics that have been coming in lately. Because of this many of our older fabrics are priced to go. If you happen to be in the area be sure to stop by to say hello & check out our clearance section.

This week we are offering the Heart & Home book 1/2 price with purchase of a jelly roll. Visit here to see my progress on my Heart & Home quilt made with a Hometown jelly roll. I was hoping to make more blocks yesterday, but a rough-ish dentist appointment destroyed that idea. :)

Also, for the month a September all internet/phone orders will receive a free pattern (of our choice). If there's a certain technique (applique, foundation piecing, patchwork) you love or would love to try leave a note on your order & we'll do our best to pick a pattern we think you will be excited to make.

Please visit our new Facebook page for even more information about our shop & website.

New Books & Another Giveaway!

We've got some great books by Judy Martin in the shop now. And The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt. If you haven't seen the Farmer's Wife quilt-a-long on Flickr be sure to head over there to see a contemporary interpretation on traditional blocks.

The newest magazine in the store.
Fall/Winter 2011 Quilt Sampler magazine

This week's giveaway:

Heart & Home: Quilt of the Month pattern

As soon as I opened the book, saw the blocks and a picture of the finished quilt I immediately thought of Sweetwater's Hometown.

So I grabbed a jelly roll and started cutting.

I love the house!

To me the tree looks a little odd, but I think that's because it's blue instead of green.

I'm looking forward to working on this quilt more this week. I'll be sharing the other blocks as the week goes on.

For your chance to win this awesome quilt pattern:

1) Leave a comment telling me which jelly roll you would use to create this quilt.

2) Be a follower of the blog. Leave a second comment telling us that you follow.

***For those of you that are new to blog-land please visit Clover and Violet's quick tutorial to make sure that we can get ahold of you if you win.
