new…patterns, fabric, kits, and a couple Civil War PURPLES!

It seems like forever since i have posted anything…the last week has been so busy.  we got in our 500 copies (yes, 500) of Quilt Sampler last monday, then 15 copies of the new Quilts and More on Tuesday, 15 more copies of Quilt Sampler on Wednesday, and then a complimentary copy of Quilt Sampler on Friday…we’ve never gotten so many magazines in a week.

I still haven’t gotten to mailing out magazines and kits.  if you ordered one to ship…don’t worry…i haven’t forgotten; we’ve just been crazy busy.  Friday night was Ladies Night Out and my birthday.  We celebrated with 29% off then after Ladies Night Out was over we (Mom, Tina, Mel, Matt, and I) went out to Ron and Judy’s for a drink.  We didn’t get home until 2 am.  We had a bus of 30 women stopping by on Saturday, so we were here bright and early Saturday.  Sunday we went down to see Grandma and Grandpa (Mom’s parents).  Grandpa is going through his second round of cancer, since finding out in August (the same day we found out we would be featured in the Quilt Sampler).  He is doing quite well…at 83 he is bound and determined to fight this, and he is with chemo once a month until October, and the doctors are very optimistic.  Then monday we spent all day getting ready for the bus of 50 women that would be stopping by on tuesday AND we got in some fabric, a few books, fun embroidery scissors, and civil war PURPLES!

I’ll start with some older fabrics but new ideas…Millicent by Anna Griffin has been in the store for almost a year (still just as gorgeous as it was then).  Mom and I love pillows and we made a dreamy little room where the fireplace and darks used to be in the back.  Gobble up this lovely room below…i’m in love with the “Big Pillows” made from 10 inch squares…so much fun!  A roll for $25 makes 2 pillows…pattern is $4 although you will need fabric for the pillow backing, and muslin and fiberfill to make a 38 inch pillow form.

And a view of the picket fence…

Piña colada is made from a grouping of prints…it is soft, sweet, and delicious.  Pattern is $8, pillowcases are $27.  Quilt is 88 x 96 inches and the kit is $110 and includes binding.

Sunbonnet Suzie–looks like embroidered Sunbonnet Sue blocks…but low and behold…a designer panel!  We’ve made it into a quilt that measures 52 x 60 inches.  Kit is $32 and includes pattern and binding.  Yardage is $9.75/yard.

We also got in a little Civil War 7 by Windham Fabrics.  It is displayed by the door in the trunk tina bought me for my birthday.  I have bundles of 10 fat quarters for $27.50.

Lastly, we got in 2 purples from Civil War 7.  These are bundled with neutrals as starter packs for Faded Pinwheels.  4 fats for $11 or 6 fats for $16.50.  Yardage is $9.99/yard.

We also got in a few books…Bundles of Fun, Dear Jane, and a new Jelly Roll book.

Don’t forget our Sampler Signing Party is on Saturday, May 15th.  we’ll have refreshments, door prizes, fun new patterns and kits…

have a piece-ful day!    april {sweetwater}

PS…we have Jumbo Rick Rack in Cream, Chocolate, and Cocoa brown  $2.75/yard.
