 Blues and yellows are so in this spring!  Love!  Love! Love this line from Moda by Robin Pickens called Cottage Bleu!  View all 34 bolts of this fabric line HERE

 This line is called Smoke Rust and that is exactly what it is...greys, browns, blacks and ivorys!  This is a more contemporary line, with a lot of wonderful blenders!  View all 32 bolts of this fabric line HERE

  Debby has done it again with this gorgeous quilt!  The girl dolls are all made with Tilda fabrics!  The pattern is The Girl Next Door by Jen Kingwell.  You can order the pattern HERE and view all our Tilda fabrics HERE

  All Iowa Shop Hop started last Tuesday, June first and these three lovely ladies were the first through our doors, starting right at 9am!

  I am having a blast meeting and visiting with people who are on the All Iowa Shop Hop! These four lovely ladies were from Marashalltown, Linville, and Sully!  I loved their matching bags, which were made by two of the ladies for their group....just for the shop hop!  Julia, let's do something fun like this for our shop hopping at the end of the month!

Show and Tells!

We've had a great week of Show and Tells, so grab your coffee, and take a peek with me at all these beautiful quilts!

UFO Finished their year with a nice celebration, and plenty of show and tells!
  Nancy with her heart quilt!

  Carrie with her triangles quilt...thanks Carrie for showing us an easy way to cut triangles!

  Nancy with her panel of the world and how she put a cute boarder on it to pop the panel!

  Dueana's charming Clothesline Club quilt!

  Sandy and her wool applique!

  But the one that touched my heart the most, was Nancy's panel she is making that is listing the names of all the victims to mass shootings since January 1st 2021.  Do you know, there are over 600 victims who have lost their lives to a mass shooting in 5 short months?  Nancy, thank you for sharing....we were all moved by this beautiful tribute you are creating!

  Then comes Pam in our Mystery Block Let's Celebrate Summer group, with another amazing way to put together Sampler Quilts!  We are all learning from your examples, Pam, so keep on sharing...we love your suggestions and quilts!  (My picture does not do thie quilt justice...sorry everyone!)

  To kick off our Summer Quilt Camp, the 1930's group, we sure learned a lot because everyone jumped into the communications and shared their knowledge!  It was a great kickoff to our Summer Quilt Camp week!  Thanks Suzanne for bringing 3 pristine 1930's quilts to share with us!  I never tire of learning about this generation of quilting!
