We are not making kits for this project so dig into
your stash and be ready for the first post next Friday.

seeing a lot more of these prints, I just can't put them
down. Temecula Treasures will be available early 2019

Mini Monday

I just love to try and recreate the look of a vintage quilt
by digging around in my scraps for just the perfect fabric. 
This month Mini Monday quilt is no exception. I think
it comes very close to the original pictured below. 
Please remember that if you have one of our
Mini-a-Month Postcard Collections form 2018
you have the pattern for this little quilt. So sorry
for those of you that do not, we no longer have
our collection in stock. Stay tuned for news about
what we have planned for 2019.

The HUGE news that you might have missed if you
do not follow me on Instagram is that I have designed
a line of fabric for Marcus Brothers!
Temecula Treasures will be in quilt shop early 2019.
We have a lot of great projects planned and also the
return of one of our favorite Blocks of the Months. 
Of course I had to cut right into it and make a little quilt
 I do not usually have a hard time throwing away
little bits and pieces, this time it was a little different.
This cute little quilt is displayed in the shop and
it is still one of the most asked about projects. If you
would like to make one, check out the free tutorial here. 
We have lots of great new fabric in the shop. If you
  are local, it is the perfect time to stop by for a visit.
