NEW! Jaye's Bouquet Embroidery BOM
Kick off spring with Jaye's Bouquet BOM! Another of our great finds at Fall Quilt Market, Jaye's Bouquet includes piecing and embroidery each month. We've used the Forget-Me-Not fabric collection for a bright, whimsical look. Barb, our resident handwork guru, loved stitching these unique flowers! We've included a kit of embroidery floss packaged in a keepsake Quilt Corral pouch. The oversized, color pattern sheets make it easy to see stitch placement. Must see in person to truly appreciate the bright, cheerfulness of this quilt!
Finished size: 48" x 60".
Sign up fee $10/month plus $8.99/m for 12 months.
Limited to 12 participants.

New pattern!
Everlasting by Suzn' Quilts
You didn't actually think we would get off the Tiny Tree a day that quickly did you? Carol keeps finding more ways to set your tiny trees together as in this pattern featuring trees in two sizes.
If you made a pile of tiny trees last year (or this year, or next year) this is a great project to use them in.
Click here for the pattern.
This pattern uses the Tiny Tree and the Mini Tree (6" x 9") templates.

Back in Stock!

Veterans Quilt Project News
You are the best! Thank you for sewing in support of veterans.  You have made blocks, volunteered to quilt, and even donated a few completed quilts in support of the VFW Auxiliary's Veteran of the Month program. We are pleased to share that two quilts have already been gifted to the Jan and Feb Veterans Of the Month. Keep those blocks coming. We will be planning a community sew day in the near future.
Feb honoree Kathleen Balser, US Navy Veteran
