Inventory Update

 Now that we are back from Houston and settling in..... some of our purchases are here.  We have these great  See Your Stuff bags.  4 nested clear bags to store all your projects and sewing notions.  It makes hand work at home or on the road very easy and keeps things neat.  They are in our Etsy shop HERE.

The Star A Day pattern is also back in stock.  You can find them HERE

I expect to have this pattern........

And this pattern... in our store in a few days.  There will also be the papers and templates to make Lake Effect.  You can see my Lake Effect above.  It looks a little lumpy because some of the papers still needed to be taken out.  I hope to show it to you all quilted very, very soon.

I did get some English paper piecing done this weekend.  Maybe by next weekend I'll have Lake Effect all done.

This is Snowfall - our new collection with Moda Fabrics.  We hope you like it.

We are just back from Houston were this was debuted.   Here are some more pics from Houston.

This is what Lake Effect will look like shortly.  I have the top and bottom border to still put on.  

The Lake Effect quilt here is a digital printed quilt!  Moda saved my behind printing this one for us.  Lake Effect is on the left.  Patrick's Patchwork is on the right.  There are pajama pants, pillows, and a backpack and a Christmas mitten made out of Cottonworks. 

Here is a better view of Patrick's Patchwork.
Patrick's Patchwork and Lake Effect patterns will be in our Etsy store very soon.

This is Lake Effect in progress last week before the side borders were added.

Some people were curious about the back of the English paper piecing.  I should have all the EPP finished in the next week or so.  Big reveal then.   When it gets time to start thinking about the kits for this (the fabric gets here in April) - know that we also have a EPP package to go with the kit.  All the papers, the 2 acrylic templates are included.

This is Toulouse - a pattern by Miss Rosie - all done up in Snowfall.  We love it. So did many of the attendees at International Quilt Market.  This will be a boxed kit from Moda in April.  You will be able to get these all over - including our very own Etsy store.

Here I am (looking thrilled as you can see) filming a little demo on EPP.  I really was happy and excited about it - despite the photographic evidence to the contrary.

Tell us what you think of Snowfall, or EPP, or Houston, or being photographed....... make a comment here before midnight November 6th and you could win those salesman sample - flippy fabric things in the video above.  There is more fabric there than is in a Layer Cake™ - but not more than a Fat Quarter Bundle - that's a lot of fabric to play with.  There are also surprises from Moda Fabrics!  That Christmas mitten is included - as is Moda Candy from many of the market collections.  Yes - 3 big packages will be mailed out.  Good Luck!
