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.

  10. My choice of Jelly Roll would be Central park or Terrain. Really contemporary colours to offset the traditional design!
