It's True ...


Today is Karen’s last Wednesday working and hosting the Wonderful Women with Fabric at the store.  Thank you from all of us for keeping the momentum going!

The store was abuzz with friends dropping by to give Karen a good send off.



Providing Karen’s knee issues get sorted out, we’ll see her back teaching classes in the fall, continuing with the Border Creek Mystery and hosting our new Civil War Sampler group.

Karen, you’re very important to us.  Take care and thank you for all your hard work.

Hexagons!


Yesterday I received the new Mobilia brochure.  Low and behold, there are hexagons everywhere!  The latest craze in quilting is also in home dec.  Have a peak at their website www.mobilia.ca.  Notice the large houndstooth wall hanging as well.  We will be offering a class on the houndstooth shortly.

We think of the hexagon as a boring Grandmothers Flower Garden block, but really the possibilities are endless.  Divide up the hexagon and end up with a 3D tumbling block. 
Add points and you’ve got a star.

Modern quilting has taken the hexagons, enlarged them and added borders.  Gorgeous!  


They can be made with the method of English paper piecing,  templates or
the new hex rulers

This Thimble Blossoms pattern would look great made from the Art Gallery Fabrics that we have in stock.
