Quilt Rush - After the Rush
Thank you to everyone who came out for Quilt Rush 2022. We always enjoy seeing our friends from nearby and from afar. See all the winners posted here.
Congratulations to Quilt Corral winners:
Wanda Beach, Shirley Wilkendorf, Jan Mills and Lisa Henry. And our Basket winner was Carlene Raczynski. Winners have 6 months to claim prizes.

Our Quilt Rush 2022 pattern, Firelight by Villa Rosa designs. finishes 44" x 55". Why we love this size:

Barb's quilt guild in Kansas makes lap quilts for wheelchair bound and home bound in her community. This size is small enough that feet and wheels don't get caught up in the quilt.

Carol loves the size for vignettes on her porch or draped across the back of a chair. The smaller size shows off color and design better than some larger quilts.

We both love the size for baby quilts. Perfect for tummy time!

If you collected fabrics from each shop during Quilt Rush you should only need to add 1 yard of background fabric and 1/2 yard of binding fabric to complete our design. Click here for a few of our tone on tone background prints.

Didn't make it in during Quilt Rush? You can still get our free pattern! Just order any item from this newsletter and when you check out leave a comment that says "Free Quilt Rush pattern" and we will include the pattern with your order. Select in-store pick up or shipping.

Barb's Way/Carol's Way
We used our Quilt Rush pattern, Firelight, and the colors of this year's theme, Best in the West, and created two versions of our quilt. We still have a few kits left.
