Handy Helper and the Winner

I am not really a gadget girl. I like to keep it simple, but this
handy helper is quickly becoming a necessary piecing companion.
The Clover Thread Cutter makes cutting the joining thread when
chain piecing a breeze. I received my handy helper as a Christmas
gift and put my husband to work making the little block stands so
 you could add one of these handy helpers to your sewing basket. 
If you would like one of your own you can order here.  
And now for the winner of this months mini. Jackie said
"Thank you for the chance to win this little beauty"
Well Jackie this little beauty is yours!

Started this week off with a little Mini Monday Inspiration.
Looking for a place for all you mini quilts? This large
pickle jar is from Walmart and is only $30.00
This month marks the beginning of my 13th year in 
business. I can't wait to see what is has in store!
 Twelve years ago I thought these little tags would 
be a cute little touch, tied with twill tape to our signature 
fat eighth bundles and mini bundles. They are hand dyed
and we glue a vintage button to each one. I should have
kept a tally but I am sure it is in the thousands. Here
is my latest batch just waiting for the button to be added. 
Making progress on my One Block Wednesday. 
The blocks are starting to pile up!
We have been shipping out a lot of Temecula Treasure
bundles. We can't wait to see what you will make with it. 
Our bundles are temporarily out of stock. We are waiting 
for a fresh shipment of fabric so we can continue cutting.

New Patterns

We have a few new patterns. First up - 1890 Nautical
I have always wanted to make an ocean wave quilt.
I loved this version with my favorite red and white 
combination. Kona Natural and Centennial Solid - Red
I also used my current obsession Temecula Treasures for
most of the over 750 half square triangles. Don't let that
number deter you, I used a different technique and did
not need to square them all up, the pattern has all the details. 
Vintage Treasure is full of Temecula Treasures and
takes the simple Nine Patch block up a notch. Use
your favorite fabrics to make this instant treasure. 
+  +  +  +  +  +  +  +
So sorry we do not have kits for these projects
but you can order the patterns here
