New Jelly Rolls and Layer Cakes from Moda






Hi everyone,
We are working on different aspects of the blog and I needed to send out a test so I thought I would tell you about the new layer cakes and jelly rolls that we recently received.


From Moda, very pretty, Avairy and Beach House. Both are nice, we are waiting for the matching yardage. These are the fabrics that Bunny Hill used in their free applique block of the month. We do have the layer cakes to accompany these.
Have a great week!

Another busy week at the shop

Hey everyone!

This past week was very busy at the shop. We had a couple of different lines of fabric come into the shop. On Monday the other McDiggs girls and I had a book signing in Logan which was a lot of fun. On Thursday I went to the QQ meeting where Ruth McDowell was the speaker. She showed us a lovely slide show of her work. Wow, she is inspiring. Here is her latest book and a link to her website:






We can order any of her books for you and will ship to you or you can save shipping by stopping in the shop and picking up.
This upcoming week we should be receiving a new book shipment from C & T Publishing. we are are looking forward to the following:











We are also focusing on changing out of the patterns on the first floor, so look forward to getting a sneak preview of these soon.

This upcoming week is going to fly by. I am excited about going to the Quintessential Quilters retreat at Deer Creek State Park. I will take lots of pictures and post them next week!

Have a great week, Sew something!

What's New and Happy Sunny Week in February!






Hey everyone!

Sick of winter yet? It makes me want to sew, and not do anything else... lol
The shop has been doing well! We were very busy for our super bowl sale and other non sales days have been great too. Thanks to all of our great customers.
I am so fortunate to have KyleAnn Williams helping me with emails, my blog and other marketing stuff... This blogspot just might get updated on a regular basis.


Wow - we are always getting in the greatest books - books you'll really want to add to your "personal library." For example, the "Wearable Arf" book you see in the right column has adorable outfits for your favorite dog - all the way up to a size 22" chest!


Coming soon from C & T publishing is Meeting Adelia by Kathleen Tracy . . . .Meet Adelia, a 19-year-old woman living in northern Illinois on the cusp of the Civil War. Her real-life diary entries record the details of daily life while war advances in the background. Her journal illustrates how central sewing and quilting were in a woman’s life during the nineteenth century. Includes period photos and 14 projects featuring nineteenth-century reproduction fabrics.

Sharon, Kathy and I all love Joanna Figueroa and her cute husband (he looks like he is 10). She has great color choices and her fabric always looks fresh.

Her newest book is coming out . . . Fig Tree Quilts Fresh Vintage Sewing


Bring fresh vintage style to your home with five great quilts and a basketful of unique projects ranging from adorable pin cushions and charming aprons to pillows and journal covers. All feature Fig Tree Quilts’ signature palette of warm, inviting tones.
See how easy it is to personalize each project with the creative use of embellishments such as beads, ribbons, and bows. For wedding showers, birthdays, or special sewing buddies, you'll have the perfect gift every time.

Have a great week!
