A Little Bit of 1930.

1930's Texas Star Starter Kit
This is our new 1930's Texas Star - Starter Kit, and it has happened because staffer Marj, who is the queen of machine piecing, made this beautiful hand pieced and quilted masterpiece.  Here it is hanging on the pink wall in the shop.  So many customers have admired it and wanted to know how to make it, we decided to make up the Starter Kit.  Full details of the Kit are in our web-site under "Kits".  Starter Packs costs $65.00 each. 

So please come and visit the shop to see Marj's lovely quilt.

Janelle sent us this photo of her finished Civil War Chronicles BOM.
I'm making this one, I'm up to the green blocks in the corner.  Well done Janelle.  Have a peek at Janelle's Blog to see all her beautiful work. 
We have one BOM program for Civil War Chronicles left, so if you would like to make this quilt ring now.
Elizabeth dropped to show how her Sarah's Revival BOM blocks are going.

Full details of Sarah's Revival is on our web-site under Block of the Month.
Last year, Barbara Brackman, quilt historian and author AND fabric designer for Moda gave us a her Civil War Block of the Week published for free on her blog see our Blog List.  Thank you so much Barbara.  A number of staff and friends took up this challenge.  Here is another completed top, this is Kate's.  Just love the sashing fabric, makes the top sing.  You can still get all these patterns on her Civil War blog.
Barbara has just launched her new Block of the Week, Grandmother's Choice.  The blog address is  I will attempt to add this one to our blog list. In this Block of the Week Barbara is showcasing blocks from about 100 years age, the period of the Women's Rights Movements.  The Suffragettes.  Also an interesting period for quilts. 
Janet, who has completly finished her Civil War, Block of the Week quilt, is now off and sewing on the new one.  Janet has chosen to make these blocks in "William Morris" fabrics, which is just perfect for this period.  
We will track her progress, but these are a intriguing start.
Why don't you start one too.
