During Cabin Fever Shop Hops, there is always a theme. We love to break through the winter blues with some fun. This year’s theme is helping the brave men and women volunteering in our armed forces.

Help us celebrate the joy of being quilters and making a difference for the world in which we live.

Dolly Dress-up Quilt Kit

It’s deepest winter. It’s cold. Many days it’s so very dreary and grey.

Here’s a new quilt kit to bring some color into even the coldest Michigan winter day!

Our Dolly Dress-up quilt uses a dolly dress panel that we’ve embellished with rick-rack and various trims. Simply pieced fun, 1930s style fabrics make up the rest of this top. The kit includes fabrics for the quilt top (six dresses to embellish) and the trims. The quilt finishes to approximately 43″ x 58″. The kit costs $39.

Ahh, like a breath of spring! We hope you’ll stop in soon and see Dolly Dress-up in person — we have it hanging in our newly re-arranged area of kid and baby prints.

Gypsy Bandana

Michael Miller Fabrics’ Gypsy Bandanna is now in the store! This collection, designed by Pillow & Maxfield, is so gorgeous, we ordered it in all colors.

It’s really beautiful — take a look.

Stop by soon and see Gypsy Bandana in person!

New Kaffe Stripes, New Tree Skirt Kit

We were thrilled to learn that a new group of Kaffe Fassett stripes was coming out! Versatile, eclectic, colorful — what’s not to love? So we ordered all of them and they just arrived.

These stripes are woven in India to Kaffe’s exacting standards. We encourage you to get them soon while they are all still in stock.

And it’s really not too late to make up the Oh Joyful Tree Skirt!

We made ours into a table topper, but our kits allow you to make a table topper or  tree skirt — diameter is 40″ on this one. Kits are $49 and include fabrics and the pattern designed by Carol Turznik.

Cheers!
