Greetings!,

We've just returned from Quilt Market - exhausted, but thrilled with all the things we have to share over the next several months! We held our next issues of And Sew On (our subscription newsletter) and our class schedule just a bit so market things can be included. They will be ready soon - until then, here are some things you won't want to miss!

See you soon,
Mary Beth  

P.S. A box stuffed with goodies ordered in St. Louis on Saturday just arrived - my goodness, this is fun!

Mini Marathon
Friday May 26th and Saturday May 27th

There are lots of reasons to love mini quilts, starting with the fact they are a manageable way to create small bits of awesome art. Many of these small works can be created (from initial cutting to adding binding) in a short amount of time. "How short?", you may ask. Well, we're about to find out! On Friday and Saturday, we will be stitching non-stop. We will make as many minis as possible and share all the steps along the way. Depending on when you get to stop in, we might be sharing how to cut efficiently with a nifty ruler, or how to accurately stitch the tiny pieces together, or even how to bind something tiny. We will keep adding to our feature display of minis as we go along - it is looking pretty impressive already - can't wait to see how it ends! We have also designed a new pattern for those who attend - you will receive a free copy of our Petite Patriotic Strippy Stars and you are welcome to select two free fat eighths from our collection, as well. Should be great fun - hope you can stop in to see where this race leads!

Di Ford's elegant Bally Hall fabrics arrived several weeks ago. Every single print in the collection is a stunning historic style wonder. If you noticed them, but wondered what to make with them, we have a suggestion. Consider something from Primarily Quilts 2, Di's newest book. The fourteen quilts are created with a range of techniques. Why not start with Silk Road (composed of pieced stars), move on to Our Ancient Mariners and then to pieces featuring English Paper Piecing and appliqué. Every single quilt has the potential to be your masterwork - honestly inspiring! Fabric $11.10 per yard, book $49.95

For a quicker project you could create Inglenook, new from Villa Rosa (I know the patterns are somewhere in the box that just arrived...). It requires a Jelly Roll and a bit of background. You won't be surprised to hear, I have the perfect new Jelly Roll for the quilt. American Made Brand has put together sets of forty strips in several different solid ranges - their "Blues" roll is my pick for this pattern. I plan to pick up Kona Snow for the background, then I can get right to the cutting and stitching. Inglenook may very well be done before your next visit! You'll have to check out the other new Villa Rosa patterns and American Made strip sets when you are here - they are all outstanding. American Made Strip Sets $38.50, Villa Rosa patterns $2.00
