More Pre-Orders in the Shop!

Jess has more gorgeous new fabrics in the pre-order section of the shop ... hurry to get your order in before these arrive and the special pre-order sale price is gone ...

One of our favorites is the Taxi line from Timeless Treasures ...

We first saw these fabrics last March when our friend Lizzie asked Jess to help her select fabrics from this line at her local quilt shop for her Friends and Fellows Mystery Quilt for our Q&N Retreat in Tomball, Texas. Even though Jess did not have these in her shop at the time, she helped Lizzie pick fabrics. Jess is one of the most helpful quilt shop owners and lovely young friends that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

Jess is always ready to help a customer put together a special kit from her shop or to just go fabric browsing with a friend.

Once we saw Lizzie's fabrics we all asked Jess to order these for the shop.

These are coming in soon ...,46

For a glimpse of what you can do with these beautiful fabrics take a look here at Lizzie's completed Friends and Fellows quilt top. Lizzie and I were travel buddies and I kept teasing her that our luggage might "accidentally" get switched at the airport. She kept telling me that no they would not that this quilt was "going home with her." Well now I have ordered my own Taxi fabrics so I do not have to drool over Lizzie's quilt anymore ... well maybe only a little. ;-)

For the Friends and Fellows pattern and kits, which is Jess's own design, look here in the shop ...,,2

For those of you who want to join us for our next Mystery Quilt Weekend ... start getting ready now!

The "Hotter Than THAT" Mystery weekend is coming in June!

Final dates for this weekend are being determined now on a poll on the forum ...

We hope you will join us for this weekend of sewing fun. Jess posts the steps one at a time on the forum as the mystery unfolds and we post pictures of our progress.

Join us on the Forum at the Quilt & Needle and jump right in ... the fabric and the friends are fine! There is always room for a new friend in our cyber quilting circle. So pull up a chair ... and as Jess will say "Don't Be a Stranger!"

:-) Pat
