So, we've done a little spring cleaning and switching things around in the shoppe. I've decided I'm getting to old for this ha..... ha...... I'm not as young as I used to be for sure! When I was done I lathered my whole body with icy hot....kind of weird I know but I think it did help a little.

I am really happy with how the shop looks and thought you might like to see some pics of our changes. Kati Cupcake.....I am so excited to be going to market with Kati Cupcake. Maywood studio will be showcasing a couple of our quilts, which is really exciting.

The pink and brown fabric above is a Maywood Studio Line by Bate and Taylor called Back Porch Bouquet! It is just flying off the shelves! It is done in Vintage baby by Kati Cupcake(the quilt on the right) and the quilt on the left is Argyle with Style by Bate and Taylor. We currently have kits available on our website and in the shoppe.

The quilt on the left is Baby dot-to-dot, a Cotton Way by Bonnie Olaveson. It is just the sweetest baby quilt for those girly girls. Kits are available on line and in the shoppe. The quilt on the right is Hopscotch by Kati Cupcake. Kit are also available on line and in the shop.

The large quilt is by Quilt Soup by Barbara Jones, Called Porch Pots, it's done in Amy Butler fabrics. The Quilt on the right is in Allison Jane Smiths newest book called Baby Love. It's a darling book. It even has cute boy quilts which are so hard to find. The runner clear to the right is Domestic Deva by Thimble Blossoms, Camille Roskelley. You will love this pattern! It really is darling!

This is our cutting table. I just love this table. I found it at an antique store. It was an old court house table. I had it refinished. I'm in love. I've had it a few years and still I'm in love. It measures 4" x 10" It's huge!

Indygo Junctions pattern called Sister Smocks is sewn in Candy Kisses. We slip this one off the display for Regan every once in a while. Bellow is Once Upon A Time by Bananafana, Jessica Goldman. It's made with Lakehouse fabrics! I love Lakehouse.

The Large quilt is Wilde Thing by Thimble Blossoms, Camille Roskelley! Made with Charisma.

Hope you liked our tour. We just got Bubble Gum Basics by Barbara Jones of Quilt Soup. I love her designs and fabric. You'll have to come in to see it (I forgot to take a picture) or go take a look on our website

Don't forget about our give-a-way! I will announce the winner May 20th. I know that's a long time away! Tell all your friends. You can comment on any post from now until May 18th.

Quilt Market

I'm really going to market.. I bought my plane ticket. Melda and I still don't have a place to stay. We may be sleeping in the bathroom. Just Kidding. This will be Meldas first Market experience ever and my first market as a vendor/designer. I'm getting so excited. If you don't know who Melda Dean is you need to come into the shop and meet her. I swear most of my customers would stop coming in if Melda weren't here. We love her, including me!

To celebrate! I've decided to do a give-a-way. A surprise from Market. Fabric, yes!..... that no one else will have yet, because it won't be out yet. Maybe a fat quarter bundle or a jelly roll layer cake bundle or something fun. I promise. Make a comment from now until I return May 18th and get you name entered into a drawing . Add me to your blog and get 5 drawing entries. Have someone comment and say you sent them and get 2 added entries. This will be a drawing. So the more you enter the better your chances.

Good luck and have fun!
