Store Special
TPN Block Party Delilah

Block Party Delilah

Between catalogs we sometimes create quilts and kits that we feature in our store. The TPN Block Party Delilah is one of our mid summer kits we have available.
Janet, who designed this quilt, used some of the fabrics in the Delilah collection to create this delightful quilt in pinks, blues, and black. We have a few kits left of this charming, fun quilt.

We are gearing up for a new fall season. Geri and staff have put together a marvelous selection of new quilt projects, ideas and inspiration for you. Our Fall 2009 catalog will be on its way by the end of August. Check our website in late August for our new fall class line up.

The image above shows our right store window with our Rose's Building Blocks pattern done in green and gold school colors (Go Ducks!). For our Beaver and Duck fans, we have fleece available for those who would like to make a soft fleecy college throw (seen in photo above).

We've restocked our shelves with the marvelous Woolies flannel from Maywood Studios. Our beautiful Northern Comfort flannel quilt kits are available again this year.

Did you know...
Sewing borders

To find the correct length for a border and to square up a quilt, measure through the center length of you quilt top. Use this measurement for the cut length of your borders. To apply the border - pin the center of the border to the center of the border edge, pin the ends and stitch the border to the quilt top edge. Continue measuring through the center of the quilt top as you stitch on each border.

Happy Quilting
