Pieced by Lonnie and machine quilted by Jess of Thread Quilt Studio, meet our new sampler Block of the Month - Solstice
Below see a few close-up shots of the blocks. This soft, shiney , silvery BOM starts in July. It's a "must come see" in person. Very pretty.

It's almost here! Our Little Sister's Outdoor Quilt Show is June 14.
If you have a finished quilt you would like to display in the shop, drop it off this week.
This is also our annual sale of all things quilty - Several items will be offered on the porch for your shopping. Big quilts, small quilts and miscellaneous bags, hot pads, etc. All proceeds from this event are donated to the Adel Library.
|Here's a picture from the 2013 show. We usually hang between 50 to 80 quilts for customers to admire.|

The twins just turned 1 year old! How did that happen so quickly?
|Here they are with birthday cupcakes. Livie wasn't real crazy about stuffing her face in front of all those guests but, Cal gave the people what they came to see!|
|And Jackson went to the doctor with high hopes of having his cast removed only to have a new one put on - 2 more weeks. |

“It is only through mystery and madness that the soul is
Are you ready for a fun adventure? It's time for our first ever Mystery Quilt Block of the Month.
Purchase your fabric for this b.o.m. from us and we will send you the steps each month for 6 months by email - - - - free.
Several of the gals in Quilt Circle of Friends did this project last year (We didn't post these pictures on the blog - it's a mystery, remember?) But, they tested the patterns and made some lovely variations that I will pass along to you.
This quilt is lovely in just three prints (light, medium and dark) or by making it quite scrappy. Either way, we can help you pick the perfect fabrics. Some are even letting us pick fabrics (based on what they tell us they like) and signing up from out of state.
We are starting this b.o.m. in June and it's June so drop in, call or email soon to register.
