Grand Traverse Bay and Our New Block Of The Month

We are pleased to announce our latest fabric collection with Moda Fabrics - Grand Traverse Bay.  Grand Traverse Bay was inspired by the colors of that beautiful place on Lake Michigan.
The colors are many shades of blue with some gold and light taupes.  We have had a great time creating things with it!

We are waiting on one more quilt and we will post them and the patterns on Sunday - right here on the blog.

We also want to show you a little something special we have been working on that uses Grand Traverse Bay!

As you can see - it also uses some Miss Scarlet!

This is our new Block of the Month for 2016 - Portage Lake BOM.

What can I tell you about her............. she finishes to 64" x 84" and the BOM will be for 12 months.  Each month you will get a fabric kit for 1/12 of the quilt and you will get the instructions, all fabric for the top and the binding.    The Block of the Month will start at the end of July and run through June 2017.  The cost of the Portage Lake BOM will be $26.00 per month and that INCLUDES USPS PRIORITY SHIPPING TO THE US.  Currently, there is no international shipping. 

We are taking reservations for this Block of the Month (so we know how much fabric to get) and you can get that HERE.  The reservation is $5.00 and that is non-refundable.  

Here are some special instructions if you do decide to make a reservation with us.  When you place your order please add your phone number to the "notes to the seller" part of the order.  We will get back to you asap to get information on shipping and delivery.
We will also have an Aurifil thread kit to go with this.  Whee!!!

We hope you like her as much as we do.  

Laters,

Laurie

So excited to see that you were inspired to design a collection by a place that is close to my family's heart. Our father is from a small town on the bay. My sister and I had many family vacations in Traverse City. I live near by and love seeing the blues of the bay when I go to shop there. Thank you. Terry and Mary/Sunny Tea Studio Designs

Oh shoot--there goes my plan to stop buying fabric!

Uh-oh. I see temptation tugging at my wallet! New blues are georgeous! My plan is to finish my son's wedding quilt in June, sew a wedding veil in June-July for the August wedding? Time spent sewing is my therapy. Anyone know where I can buy rhinestones by yard? The thoughts of a brand new quilt to work on is ...Sweet!

Hi ~ I know the registration is closed for the Portage Lake BOM ... but ... if someone decides to back out or if you can slip in one more reservation I would LOVE it. I live in Traverse City and this is PERFECT for up here ... thanks for creating such a beautiful line as Grand Traverse Bay!! Linda Hoch Canends@Hotmail.com 231-313-8692

I was born in Northport and lived on Grand Traverse Bay in Traverse City, Suttons Bay and Northport - I'm on a "fabric diet" - but I HAVE to get these fabrics!
