CHRISTMAS FABRICS!!

We are just 29 weeks away from Christmas! WOW!! We are receiving lots of Christmas Fabrics for those special projects. We have beautiful greens, reds, whites and patterns in candy canes, reindeer, holly, stripes, and white snowflakes! Come in to see all of them.

We have Moda’s Sugar Plum, Henry Glass’ Reindeer Magic and Hoffman’s Cardinal Christmas, Brilliant Blenders and Winter Blossom. You will be inspired to begin right away.

Cathy will be teaching a 6 month Block of the Month called Rachel Remembered 1820-1850. This is Betsy Chutchian’s for Moda. Betsy is known for her classic reproduction prints inspired by moving historical stories.

Rachel Remembered’s inspiration derives from an antique quilt that included a print commemorating General Andrew Jackson. Seeing that print mixed with the many beautiful floral and chintz prints was a reminder of his wife, Rachel who passed away after he was elected President of the United States but before he was inaugurated. Soft golds, federal blues, a deep shade of red and creamy background prints complete the feel of this vintage collection.

Come in and see all the blocks that Cathy has finished. This is an absolutely beautiful quilt and we are sure that you will love it. The class is filling up fast and it looks as if we will have 2 classes! You can sign up at the shop or call 812-346-4731 to reserve a spot.
