mankato quilt show prep

we are so busy getting ready for the quilt show this weekend…i thought i would pop in and show you what we’ve been putting together.  all these projects will be available in the shoppe, at the show this weekend, and starting monday…on etsy!  if you’d like one before hand…let me know and i’ll set up a listing!

Friendship Circle…18 x 18 inches and kitted for just $20 complete.  this elegant topper is so sweet!  i love how the friendship stars chain around the center–almost like magic!  we are thinking we may have to make a shabby version of this one–a little fig tree and florals done scrappy on white…ooolala!

30’s packs are so popular…and we how can you resist these colors?!  we’ve done up parade candy bundles in…Granny’s, dots, notions, and christmas.  then below on the right we did up a few fat 8th bundles of dots!  i LOVE LOVE LOVE dots!


Cottage half jelly…even thought spring isn’t here yet (apparently we may get another 6 inches of snow…YIKES!) we just couldn’t keep ourselves from bundles up some wonderful spring-y loveliness…each bundle is half a jelly roll…20–2 1/2 inch strips.

Sweet Keeps…made using some reproduction vintage tea-dyed prints they are just so pretty.  Kitted and ready to go!
