So Many Quilts All in One Day with Betsy Chutchian



We really cleaned out the classroom to provide a blank slate for everything that Betsy Chutchian was able to pack in her giant suitcases!  She stacked up quilts on a couple of different crib and doll beds to provide quite the bed-turning.  And of course, as a backdrop, we had several of her quilts that had been on display in her Moda booth at Quilt Market in Portland.



Although Betsy talks "Texan", she also uses her hands so we managed to ooh and ahh at the right moments as all the little quilts were revealed one by one.




It was a hard days work, but several of our participants managed to get some stitching done while visiting!  We had a lovely day with Betsy and her generous sharing of information, quilt history and little quilts.

New Fabric and Floral Display

We have found the secret to an ever-lasting Bouquet of peonies ~ crepe paper and floral fabric for the win!!  Have you seen our latest store display? 


We were inspired for a Garden Party - this floral fabric was our inspiration.  It has been a busy month so far with school activities, graduations, recitals, sports and maybe a bit of gardening on the side!  We hope you have found some time for stitching too.  We have plenty of new fabrics arriving to give you some fresh inspiration!
