Sisters of the Square Group

In this past year we've created a new group here in the store called the "Sisters of the Square". This is for anyone with the square in a square ruler by Jodi Barrows. Need help with a block? Not sure how to use your ruler? Want to socialize while you work on Square in a Square projects? This is the group for you! 

We meet each month on the 1st Thursday in the upstairs classroom, and classes are free. Currently we are working on learning these blocks in 9 month Block of the Month series:

Each meeting we learn one of the blocks and give you our own fabric scraps to learn with. The blocks made with our scraps go towards the Charity Quilts we make for the cop cars and cancer center. If you want to use your own fabric feel free to bring it to work towards making a quilt of your own.

Open House: Small Quilt Show

Each year for Open House we have a small quilt show. We love to see the beautiful work that everyone does and the chance to show it off to the community. This year we had 7 beautiful small quilts to display! 

During Open House we invited everyone to go through and vote for their favorite quilt. That's a tough choice with all the beautiful options! A mom and 4 children were in voting at one time and one boy asked if he could vote for all of them, he couldn't pick a favorite.

After Open House the votes were tallied and the winning quilt was this one, entitled City of Rocks, done by Kathy Cole.

2nd Place was this beautiful green and pink quilt by Nelda Brown.

3rd Place was this fantastic ristra quilt by Jillyn Dille.

Walker Bag Instructions

This past Friday a few of the girls (Jillyn, Sandra, and Maria to name a few) got together here at the store to make these fantastic walker bags for the residents of the Ft. Bayard Medical Center. These sure help to add cheer to the facility, make carrying things around much easier for the residents with walkers, and provided a great way for these ladies to connect with the community. This was a great service project and we were tickled to be a part of it. 

For a PDF of the instructions to make these walker bags, click here
