New Book from Primitive Gatherings

Primitive Gatherings new book Autumn Gatherings arrived this week and I just couldn’t resist this cute little quilt called “Turkey Tracks”. Its finished size is 15” square and the blocks are only 2.5”!

Turkey Tracks Quilt

Isn’t this block just adorable? We made kits for this quilt (available on the website) and have plans to kit a couple of the other projects in the book. As usual, there are some great wool projects and there are also some really nice bigger quilts and table runners. I want to make every project in this book!

Memorial Day

Hello Pieceful Quilters,

Sorry I haven't been "blogging" too much lately. We have been really busy around the shop getting ready for shows and demos, and even our regular classes. I don't know why everything seems to take me so much longer than it used to.

My Memorial Day weekend has been pleasant and even somewhat productive. It is nice to have a couple of days to work at my own pace. I hope you have all had a nice weekend, too.

I want to tell you about our Seasonal Sampler Free Demo this week. Jean Mueller has designed a cute wallhanging or small tablerunner, and those in attendance will receive a free pattern handout.

She has also designed a patriotic tabletopper which comes with a bonus pattern for a Mini Flag Wallhaning. We have patterns and kits available for all of these projects for you, but you will have to come to the demo to get a peek!

Please come to the demo on Tuesday evening or Wednesday morning and Jean will show you her tips for completing these great quick projects. Bring a Patriotic Show n' Tell and you will be entered in a drawing for a cool door prize!

I hope you are all having a Pieceful Memorial Day Weekend!

New Jo Morton Fabrics - Cinnamon & Spice & Harmonies

Hello Pieceful Quilters,

I just wanted to give you a look at Jo's new collections. It took us a while to get Cinnamon & Spice, since they lost our order, but if finally came in this week, and it is gorgeous!


Harmonies, came in right before Cinnamon & Spice, and it is also gorgeous:


These fabrics coordinate nicely with each other, and a lot of the other Jo fabrics. We have fat quarter bundles of each of them, but call ahead to make sure we hold one for you - they are going fast!

Have a Pieceful Week!
Carrie
