It’s been a very busy summer and we’ve so much to tell you about!
Our Golden State “Warrior” long arm quilting machine is up and running like the newly facelifted machine that she is (okay, so Buff calls it a lobotomy…). We are moving through our backlog with speed and accuracy, finishing your beautiful quilts so that we can get them back into your hands.
We thank you so much for your trust & patience during our down time.
A special shout out to Barb, Cheri, and Sonja who kept us on schedule for all our deadlines with creativity and style!
We want to thank all who participated and helped make our Shop Hop by the Bay 2018 in June a great success. We made the event quilt up in Tula Pink fabrics, and still have a few kits left.
Row by Row, “Sew Musical” theme, is off to an exciting start. We enjoy having visitors from all over the country. We couldn’t decide on one, so we made TWO rows.
“Sew in Love”
"All you Need is Love” are available in the store,
as well as our Junior row, “MUSIC” Kit & pattern and “Quilt Crazy” license plates.
Heather Fraser-Sharp is our 2018 Row by Row winner, and she took home 25 beautiful Kaffe Fassett fat quarters! Her joyful quilt was turned in and completed in less than 2 weeks from the start of the event! Congratulations Heather!
Stop by the shop and see this creative quilt for yourself.
August Friendship Triangle Exchange:
We are calling this one Fishsticks!!! It will be made of beautiful ocean-colored batiks.
Golden State Quilting Half-Square Triangle Exchange
What happens when you roll two pieces of 6 ½” x21” batik fabric together with a sheet of Half Square Triangle Exchange paper, take it home and sew them all together? You get 28 (2” when finished) HST’s! The more you sew and bring back to exchange, the more variety of HST’s you will receive, just perfect for the projects in Edyta’s Friendship Triangle book (available for purchase in the store) or any project that uses 2” finished half square triangles!
Lots of New fabrics have arrived:
