Merry Christmas!

Sending all family, friends & customers a Merry Christmas wish; also wishing you all a very Happy & Prosperous 2017! 

 It sure does not seem possible that we are sending these wishes once again.  As we have always been told - the days of our lives move faster & faster every year!  So we must enjoy them more & more!

Added excitement today is my new collection with Washington Street Studio - Christmas Remembered !  Fabric reps are showing it now for spring delivery.

Featuring reds, greens, blacks & tans it lends itself to wonderful Christmas projects but all of the fabrics work across the board.  The patterns, stripes & florals will work non-Christmas, too, on the shelf with a multitude of other projects & home decor.

And the toiles that I so love for quilting, especially quilt backs are included in this grouping in red on cream, black on cream, & tan on cream!  Toiles can add so much to a room's decor; I especially love them in bedrooms & dining rooms.  Cut them up into a quilt, put them on the quilt back, and add them as the dust ruffle; their uses are endless for the entire room's look!

And don't you love the stripes for bias bindings, inner borders, outer borders, applique. . . I love a snappy stripe to play around with!

Then in each colorway there is a sweet little check on the bias . . . again for cutting up, borders & bias bindings!

And let's not forget the backgrounds & the red, green, & black prints for piecing the blocks!  

Blacks & Taupes/Beiges 

I am picturing a black, taupe, beige & cream quilt . . . 

Christmas Baskets

Don't miss the quilt pattern on the back of the color cards.  The pattern is Christmas Baskets & will be available on my website as soon as the fabric is available.
Or call me at 712-362-3022

In the meantime
take some time off to enjoy the holidays just as much as you possibly can.   Thank you so much for your business this year!

Bubble Gum Quilt by The Woolen Needle

I have had so much fun making this quilt by The Woolen Needle gals from Williamsburg, Iowa!  These gals designed this quilt for my fabric line Flying Geese by Washington Street Studio !  I visited their booth at the Des Moines AQS Show a couple weeks ago & thoroughly enjoyed renewing our friendship.

Simply love this pattern & just had to make it!  You know how it goes sometimes you see a quilt & you just have to drop everything & do it.  That is how I felt about this quilt & it was quick & easy.  

Candy at Homespun Quilt Shop has fabric paks available right now!  The Woolen Needle gals' applique is all done with wools, but mine is cotton flannels; Candy's kits are also done with the flannels exactly like this quilt.  So get them now while selection is good!  Call her at 712-362-5100.
