Currently in the Store

Hello Friends,

This is Jenny, and I have not posted for the store in a long time. But I recently went in and was so excited about some of the lines they have in right now that I wanted to share!

Simply color in charm packs, layer cakes, and yardage. Can I just say something about the charm packs? They look okay, but not to die for. That front fabric is probably the least exciting pattern in the entire line. It is false advertising. The stuff in there is darling.

Simply Color

I mean, look at the yardage:

(Except those three Oh Deer's on the left of that photo above)

Simply color

I love the zig zags, geometrics, and botanicals. Come in and brighten your stash with this stuff, people!

Simply Color

They also have Christmas fabrics:



Plenty of children's stuff:
A darling selection of vintage patterns of yardage, a book, and other panels:

Vintage yardage and panels

Robots, for those busy boys.


And bungle jungle, for baby boys or girls, or just people who love brights.

Bungle Jungle

I love Mama Said Sew, and I have made a bunch of darling hot pads out of it with their insulbright. They have MSS in charm packs, layer cakes . . .

Mama Said Sew

And yardage.

Mama Said Sew Yardage

Furthermore, if my small children had not been in great need of my undivided attention, I would also have shot their beautiful other line of french vintage sheet looking stuff in a pretty pale purple, red, blue, and gray. Maybe I can get in there another day, but you all should get in there right away! Check your email for their schedule. The Santa workshop sounds super fun.

Back to School

The first day of school has always had mixed emotions for me.  There have been years that I couldn't hardly WAIT for the first day of school.  However, as my children have gotten older, I have found myself wanting to keep them home more and more.  (Don't get me wrong, there are days that I wish school was year round with NO vacations! - Sorry Teachers!)  So, it was a little sad sending them off to school this morning.  Some are starting a new adventure in a new school, some are the "Top Dogs" now, but with each comes a new experience. 

 For me, the one bright side is now I have a little more time to QUILT!  Which project should I work on first????  I know some of you have only 1 UFO (unfinished object), but if you're like me, you enjoy the process of quilting and don't really mind having a few (or many, many) UFOs.  

Speaking of back to school, we have Layer Cakes & Charms of this darling line from Moda by American Jane called, ABC 123!  Isn't it just adorable!?!  Perfect for the First Day of School.

So, how do you feel about the First Day of School?

And the Winner is . . . .

. . . . . VICKIE!

E-mail your address to and we'll put your charm pack in the mail.  Congratulations!

We appreciate everyone taking time to give us some feedback.  It's very helpful!

New Fabrics and a few WIPS

Just bringing a little taste of what we've got at the shop to your day.

You'll want to look a little closer at this one...

That's right. GLITTER!

I know this line is new. Check it out, turquoise and/or lime green fans.

Correct me if I am wrong, Wendy, but I think this line is called Summer Cabin, which is totally appropriate for a summer cabin quilt. Woodsy, earth tones, but some fun brights thrown in for variety of selection.



 I don't know if any of these are new, but I just love bright stuff for summer.


We have got some darling flannels in. If you haven't tried backing a quilt with quality flannel, you are missing out. It is so soft, and when it is not the junky $2 stuff with a horrible weave it is great to work with.

Work In Progress.

This is going to be a patriotic row of the month called Land that I Love. Come in to see the fabrics in real life. They are even prettier than the pictures! It will start the last Saturday of May. It is 66"x76". Sariah will teach, and she will also show how to add 6 more inches to make it a twin size. She designed this quilt, and you can now see the full flimsy with borders on our Quilt Cottage Facebook Page. I was a few hours too early to photograph it after completion. :)
