Wow! What a busy day! Our “quilting team” busted out quite a few beautiful treasures! We had a team cutting out “Lush”, Anchors Aweigh” and more quilt kits, fat quarters and more. Then we had some great customers, some new and some of our “quilts playground buddies” stop in, sit a spell, chat and a bit and of course pet some luscious quilting fabrics! What a great beginning to October!!! Come on in and enjoy our fun!

Abbi Mays Quilting Service

Check out this “vintage quilt” we were privileged to quilt. The quilt top dates back way over 50 years. It was originally found as a “lining” under another older quilt ~ why it’s been able to keep its vivid colors and nice condition. It turned out super nice. We quilted it in a traditional “orange peel” design.

Sew in Love will become your new obsession as Edyta encourages you to let loose, play and experiment with her Sweethearts.

With well-known designers leading the way--including best-selling authors Christa Watson and Katja Marek—it’s easier than ever to have fun with fat quarters!

Yuki - Moda

"Yuki means “snow” in Japanese and this collection is my interpretation of icicles, frost in the air and snowflakes, from those tiny wisps to the large flakes that fall like feathers. The snowflakes seem set against a deep blue sky when I look at them… or perhaps they are the cracked ice on the surface of a frozen lake in the mountains. Yuki is a winter collection that can transition into quilts and projects for any season." ~ Debbi Maddy

Available as yardage, fat quarter bundles, and quilt kits.

Happy Mothers Day!

Wow! Mother's Day is right around the corner. Many of us still have our mother with us while others only feel the warm embrace of "mom's" loving hugs that stay imprinted in our hearts forever. Either way, Mother's Day has always been such a sweet day for us as a "child of mom". So many cherished memories we each had growing up over the years. No matter if your mom was your best friend or a very difficult person to deal with at times. Whether your birth mother raised you or you had a beautiful woman who came beside you and became your mom.  Mom was the first person who imprinted upon our hearts.
We knew her heartbeat ~ her heart beat was "love".

So, today if you still have your mom, give her a deep hug and remind her how much she is loved and how important she is. If you are a mother, take the extra time to give your child/children a sweet embrace and speak words of love into their ears. If your mother has left you with just an imprint on your heart in this world, take the time to talk about all the sweetness that she poured on you!
Moms are the best!
