Calling All Domestic Divas!

This just in...
the Domestic Diva line by Riley Blake.
This is such a fun line and The Pine Needle is happy to have loads of it.

This line brings us right back to the 50's.  Check out the theme fabric.

Doesn't this make you want to iron something? 
And we have just the thing for you to iron... here's a brand new product
which will fuse all your old pieces of batting together 
into a large piece that is usable for a new project.

Check out "Heat and Press Batting Together" 
and fuse new life into your batting.

And after all that ironing, 
this fabric just calls out for some homemade chocolate cupcakes.

That's all for this week.  Have fun ironing, cooking and quilting of course.

Mystery Quilt Party and Next Block Party

Wow!  Look at some of these fabulous quilts
that were made in the Mystery Quilt series.
Quilters gathered on Saturday at The Pine Needle
to show off their creations and share in some yummy food.

Be sure to join us for our next fun Quilting party -
The Holiday Block Party
and Cookie Exchange - December 4th!

Geri has chosen this beautiful French reproduction fabric
from the Lumiere de Noel line by Moda to be the focus fabric.

Here's the scoop.
  • For $15 you receive a half yard of the theme fabric plus these three coordinating fabrics to be used as you desire.
  • You choose any block pattern and make six identical 8.5" x 8.5" unfinished blocks adding any other fabrics you would like.
  • On December 4th, bring five of your blocks and three dozen cookies to the party.
  • You go home with 5 blocks from a blind drawing... enough to put together a table runner or quilt - AND... you'll have cookies too! What a great start to the Holiday Season.
And for some added fun.... 
we'll be having an Ugly Holiday Sweater contest!  Bring it on girls!!!

Bonus for participants...
Receive a 15% discount on the entire bolted line of Lumiere de Noel...
and there are a ton of them to choose from - these are just a few.
