Tiny Bolts

Well that went fast! Thank you so much! The Little Bolts in cotton are all gone, but I have one more thing to show you. And it is even more adorable than a little bolt.

These are fat quarters wrapped onto tiny bolts, and they would look darling all lined up on your shelf until you are ready to use them. Or if you just want to look at them, that's okay too.

There are three different bundles (all Bonnie and Camille fabric), with 6 tiny bolts in each bundle. Since these are from my stash, there are only a few of each one listed in the shop

These Tiny Bolts are something I will continue to add now and then, so keep checking back.

There are still a few of the Marmalade Flannel Little Bolts so get them while they last!

Thank you so much and see you soon!

Little Bolts

You are probably wondering..what are Little Bolts?

Well, as I was relaxing in bed early one morning, I had this thought, 
wouldn't it be fun to make 
1 yard cuts of 44" wide fabric, fold them in half and call them Little Bolts.

With some projects Fat Quarters are just not quite big enough.

1 yard cuts work great for borders on a smaller or even mid-sized quilt,

and they work well for background prints and are large enough to sash some quilts.

There are cuts of Bliss, Marmalade and Happy Go Lucky.  If there is anything you might be wanting from these three collections in a one yard cut, that is not here, 
e-mail me and I will check my stash.

They also look cute all wrapped up stacked in my studio, you know like those charm squares, jelly rolls and fat quarter bundles I just can't seem to cut into!

I also have some yummy 1 yard Little Bolts in Marmalade flannel.  

Moda flannel is the softest you will find anywhere!

Put two pieces together for the perfect size baby receiving blankets.  36" x 44".
There are some great boy prints here.

Lots of great combinations.  It would also be fun to add Snuggles to one side.  
What could be more cozy and so fast and easy?
Great gifts!

The girls are here working their little hearts out.

Getting all the orders ready to ship.

Emily has been cutting away, and yes, she is almost 8 months pregnant and we 
can't wait to see and snuggle her little guy. 
So excited for a baby boy this time.

She has an adorable little helper! 3 year old Livvy loves to help us "pin" scraps.

And lots more helpers playing out in the back yard.
So fun to have them here! 
They certainly know how to brighten my day!

Oh, and I have also added 3 different Fat Quarter Bundles to my shop.

Each bundle has 6 different prints.  

Only a little left that I could part with...


and happy go lucky
for those of you who can't seem to find it near you.
It is in stores NOW!

We also have a few happy-go-lucky

So hop on over and check out the NEW Little Bolts in cotton and flannel and 
the Fat Quarters as well.

Oh and don't forget I have 4 NEW patterns that were just introduced at Quilt Market.  
All are available NOW in printed pattern or PDF version.

They are all in the shop as well.

They are stitched in our newest fabric line "Scrumptious" that will be in stores in September.

I can hardly wait!

More on Quilt Market coming soon!

Happy Summer and Happy Stitching!

Just wanted to show you some close up pictures of my new Poppies quilt today...

                                      It was so much fun to make, hope you will give it a try!  
                                                  Seriously, the curved petals, so easy.

Using the Jelly Roll strips makes it so fast too!

I love how Andrea quilted the scallops in the courtyard steps block, 
the circles on the petals and the double curves in the 16 - patch center.
Just perfect!

                               Andrea, my quilting angel, you out did yourself!  Thank you!!!

I am having so much fun stitching with our new Scrumptious line!


                  The blocks are 16" x 16" and the quilt measures 74" x 90", so it's a great size.

... and I want to announce our three - yes, three winners, for last weeks giveaway. 

      denise n.,  I am Just One Mom and McCall Johnson

Thanks for letting me know your favorite patterns. 
 It's always a little scary to put them out there and wonder which ones you like the best, so thanks for your sweet comments and for all the love and prayers! Can't thank you enough!

So blessed,
