Still time to make a gift

We recently got in this Fleece Angry birds panel.  This could make a quick last minute Christmas gift for that kid or adult who is crazy about those Birds and Piggies.  You could even back it with our red or lime green Cuddle fabric and make a super blanket. The only down side is that there were only 9 panels on the bolt and two have already sold. Hurry in and get yours soon!

To Market To Market To See Lots of Things!!

I heard some interesting news that is happening this week!!  Donna and Judy are going to International Quilt Market this week.  They are so excited, and will hopefully get tons of ideas for new classes, goodies and fabrics for the store.  WhooooHooooo!
But the best thing about their leaving is that Judy asked Marnie and Terri to work at the store while they are gone.  So while the "mice" are away the "cats" are going to play and have a Green Tag Twenty Sale.
Thursday, Friday and Saturday they will choose twenty different fabrics and put a green tag on them.  Those tagged fabrics will be 20% off for that day only.  So if you have really had your eye on a particular fabric and would like to see it on sale, you better go in and ask if they might consider it for the following day.

Microwavable Bowl Cozies Tutorial

These bowl cozies are fast and easy to put together! With the Warm Tater batting, these cozies act as an insulator and a built in hot pad for the bowls as they are warming up in the microwave. 

Supplies (to make one cozy):
  • 2 10-inch squares of fabric (can be the same color/fabric or two coordinating colors/prints)
  • 2 10-inch squares of Warm Tater batting
  • Coordinating Thread
  • Quilt Basting Spray
  • Marking Pen (we like the Frixion pens and highlighters)
  • DVD or CD for tracing circle shape and size
  • Sewing Machine

  1. Place one fabric square on top of one square of Warm Tater, basting together with spray adhesive. Make two. 
  2. Draw lines from corner to corner and vertical and horizontal lines on the Warm Tater side. Trace a circle in the middle of the square using a DVD or CD, line up the holes in the DVD with the lines you have already drawn. 
  3. Sew all four lines. Do not sew the circle yet. 
  4. You will make four darts on the vertical and horizontal lines on each piece. Fold the square in half on the sewn line. Measure over 1-inch from the fold, draw a line from the top of the fold to the circle, do this on all 4 sides and sew darts. Trim darts to 1/4". 
  5. Sew the circle on both sandwich pieces. 
  6. Put the two [pieces right sides together and sew a 1/4" seam around all four sides, leave approximately 4" to turn cozy. Trim corners and turn. 
  7. Stitch opening closed. Top stitch 1/4" near the edge all the way around the cozy. You now have a finished bowl cozy.

Advent Calendar Panel

Donna got our sample made up of the new "His Arrival" Advent Calendar panel.  The panel comes with the 24 ornament cutouts that you hang on the tree.  She just fused Heat and Bond to felt then to the ornaments and used her pinking shears to cut them out.  A small loop of ribbon on each ornament and buttons on the tree to hang each one on.  Great addition to your own Christmas decorations or what a wonderful gift.
