Sew Blessed News - July 31st
Happy Friday Friends!
How are you all doing today? I can't believe it's the end of July already! It's been nice to have a small break from the heat! I did get to spend the weekend working on my longarm...but I forgot to take a picture of what I was working on, so, next week I will send a picture! Mom is back from vacation but now I think she needs a stay-cation to catch up from all the fun they had!
Last week, I shared the beautiful Christmas lines we have in - this week I want to share with you one of the kits we have made. Window Frost Quilt Kit featuring Winter Blessings by Kim Diehl. I can't wait to see this made up! (Maybe I'll volunteer to make a sample....)
Also, NEW in Hi De Ho by Moda! This fun fresh line will be darling made up into a fun quilt. We do have jelly rolls to match too!
You all know we LOVE Villa Rosa Designs! Well the newest one we have fallen in love with is the pattern Honor. Using two focal fabrics, you create a beautiful quilt. We chose to use Serenity. Kits and patterns are available!
It's not too late to join us for the "Grandma's Wedding Ring" quilt class taught by certified instructor Catherine Erikson. Call us today to join in the fun! For those of you taking the class, I encourage you to take a peek at what quilts Catherine has made. You can find them online at:
For the next few Fridays, we are going to be introducing our employees to you! So this week let's get to know Cindy aka "Kit Queen".
