Check out these creative projects you can do using the selvages of your fabrics. The book "Quilts from the Selvage" has great ideas. Instead of throwing away those selvages, incorporate them into a project. I haven't done this, but one of our customers has.

Back from Quilt Market

We are back from the Houston Quilt Market, all inspired and ready for a new season of quilting. We brought back some great new patterns, and new books, tools, and fabrics will arrive in the next few months. I will have some pictures in the next few days to share, so be on the lookout. Marcy and I were photographed with Jim Shore and J. Wecker Frish of Quilting Treasures. You will remember that J. Wecker Frish, designed "Tiny Tailors". She has continued to come up with some exciting fabrics that we purchased for future deliveries. Can't wait for you to see them.

Jerry and his team kept watch over the shop while we were in Houston. We finally let him cut fabric, but as he will quickly tell you, he does not do colors. The ladies are for that, so be patient with him.

We have several new samples up for you to see, and will soon have some pictures on our blog. Feel free to share some of your projects with us.
