Small Block of the Month Classes

We have a great class series going on in the store right now! Claudia Toenies is teaching a small block of the month class on the 1st Wednesday of every month. Here are some of the past few month's squares:  

She puts so much hard work and creative talent into these blocks, and we are so excited that she is willing to share that with all of us here in the store. Come join us these next few months to learn how to make the following squares (or to get help to make a previous month's square):

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.
