Did you hear that storm last night?

That storm was quite something. Very noisy! Incredible light show. But lots of rain to refresh lawns, flowers, and crops. Reminded me of the small Calendar Quilts by Kim Schaefer, like June's luscious watermelon and the picnic ants and August's honey bees buzzing around darling flowers. We are currently putting together kits for September (delicious apples!) and October (adorable pumpkin). Lots of quilt "themes" are affected by rain - think of all those floral prints, the star blocks, even pinwheels. Come in and get refreshed with these great wall-hangings and other quick projects.

Shop Hop was great! A lot of people enjoyed visiting the shop and discussing other shops they had seen. Remember to come in and use your Shop Hop coupon. It is now valid! It's good for 25% off one item or one cut of fabric!

We have two great kits from the book Happy Hauntings. One is the BOO! kit, which features three 6" x 10" quilts that spell the word "BOO!" The other is a cute witch, saying "What did you call me?" This wall-hanging is 24" x 30".

Nearly all the August Block of the Month kits are ready, and we are working on the one from Quilted Devotions. As usual, we have some great new books that are "must sees". Be sure to look at them when you pick up your BOM.
