I'm Allergic to Entitled

Seeew...

I have a lot on my mind after what clearly a rough start to the week! If you don't follow us on Facebook, this post will be irrelevant to you. Let's just say that a small portion of the population certainly should have paid more attention to this lesson in their childhood. When I was younger my parents would point out that "the world doesn't revolve around you" whenever I misbehaved. I wasn't always a gem ya know. In fact, I have never claimed to be. Whenever they would say that to me, the only thing my mind could envision at the time was a planet swirling around me. I didn't get it. LOL. But as I got older....it all made sense.

Social Media has definitely brought out a lack of manners in quite a few. That's all.

Thursdays Are Date Nights With Holly! Now Open Until 8pm On Thursdays!

-25

Seeew...

No, that's not "Holly." That's the "Mothership"...her name btw is Jan.

About five years ago I adopted the name "Mothership" because I had some woman harrassing me through email and comments about how I referred to her as "my mom" and tried to mock the fact that we are a mother/son team. It was getting seeew bad that I started to not want to post. Well, unbeknownst to me our loyal blog readers enjoyed the nickname seeew much that it just took hold and the "Mothership" was born. The moral of the story...take someone's negative and turn it upside down.

As far as "Holly" is concerned, we always know when a solicitor is calling the Shoppe because they ask for "Holly." Nice try but uh...that's not her name. You'd think that if they wanted us to buy from them or listen to their spiel, they'd maybe do their research to find out the owner's name? Another give away I always know it's a solicitor...our actual customers don't call us from a noisy call center. LOL. Truth be told Holly is the name of a very ugly cat that belongs to one of my brothers. I suppose I can't be too harsh because it was her name that has made us who we are today, right? I should try and get a photo. I'll get on that stat.

The purpose of this blog post however is to let you know we are now open until 8pm on Thursdays here in the Charbonneau District of Wilsonville, Oregon. We sent a survey last month asking our followers what night they would like to see the Shoppe open late, and the result was Thursday night! Friday was in second place but I have a hard time with giving up my Friday night for someone to maybe show up. I'm still young...I've got dance floors to burn up! LOL.

No seriously, Thursday nights are a great night to come out as the traffic isn't bad at all and it's gorgeous out here! The best part about it is that it was selected by YOU! We are excited to see what happens!

English-Paper-Piecing

We do have an English Paper Piecing Club on Thursday night once a month from 6:30pm-8:30pm seeew be sure to check out the schedule located here. Seats are limited to 8 and each month the "Mothership" will be introducing new projects and techniques! The first date is June 15, 2017.

This Saturday is our neighbor's first birthday! Lux Sucre Desserts turns one! That's a huge milestone! To celebrate we are adding a complimentary Kid's Craft Table from 12pm-4pm. The Mothership will be teaching these adorable popsicle garlands which is what she has been working on in the photo above! She's created a variety of styles so bring your favorite little one and watch them be creative!

Lux-sucre-birthday

Alright everyone...we are looking forward to seeing the result of your survey! Are Thursday nights your best night to visit? I guess we will find out!

Stay Seeew-cial! ~ Brian

Seeew Cute Wednesday!

Sunny-Sunday-Supper-Runner (1)

Seeew...

Happy Hump Day! Two days down...and two days to go!

Sometimes I just have to sit back and marvel at all of the cuteness around the Shoppe lately! It certainly helps that we have such a delicious bakery next door as I tend to borrow (well...ok, I actually make a few purchases) a few props! 

I am loving...LOVING...our Sunny Sunday Supper Table Runner right now. Those yellows, aquas and greens just give this block seeew much more whimsy! The "Mothership" even packed each individual block in our kits to help with fabric placement! If I had to choose just one table runner kit to make...this would be it!

It just says SUMMER!

Cute bowl too.

Sunny-Sunday-Supper-Runner-2 (1)

If you haven't been to our Shoppe in a few years, let's just say we've been staying consistently bright since 2014. You can't help but smile when you see all of the bright colors.

Oh...I know what I was going to show you!

This cute Project Bag pictured below is an upcoming class on August 3, 2017. We hope you like to make bags because this is a fun one! In this class you will learn how to work with vinyl, zippers and applying the binding. You'll also learn how to quilt on the Soft & Stable. The "Mothership" and Christine have a thing for bags that you can see into because it makes it much easier to find supplies!

New-bag-class

Isn't it cute? Love their fabric selection but then I always gravitate to coordinated styles.

Now here's a little sneak peak at something that makes my heart soar!

As you all may remember...below is our exclusive pattern for the Row by Row Experience from last year.

Row-By-Row-Experience-2016-2

The "Mothership" and Christine had some great vision when they designed this one last year, because it turns out that the theme for 2017 is "On The Go!"

Go figure!

Seeew, it only made sense to continue our theme from last year! I took the sneak peak picture below showing a part of the new 2017 row!

The two of them are as giddy as can be because they are now creating a project that uses both rows!

Row-By-Row-Experience-2017-5

The Row by Row Experience kicks off on June 21, 2017 and continues through September 5, 2017. You must visit shops in person to receive a complimentary pattern. The entire experience was created to show support for your local brick and mortar quilt shops. The patterns are designed by the local shop owners so it's nice when people come and support the stores for their efforts! Kits will be available to purchase as well.

You can find us at our new address in the Charbonneau District of Wilsonville, Oregon. Our address is 31840 SW Charbonneau, Dr. Wilsonville, Oregon 97070. Our hours will be extending starting June 21 but currently hours are Thursdays 10am-8pm and 10am-4pm on Tues. Wed. Fri. and Saturday.

Alright, be good out there...always making something cute and stay seeew-cial! ~ Brian

Thought About Learning Something New? Foundation Paper Piecing with Jennifer Ball Gives You A Whole New Skill Set!

Paper-Piecing-Class

Seeew...

We'll be sharing new class information here on the blog over the course of the next weeks. If you don't want to wait for me to show them off here on the blog, all you have to do is hop over to our website here! Yes...I make it that easy.

Pictured above is the project for our Foundation Paper Piecing Class with local designer, Jennifer Ball. The class will be offered Saturday, July 29 from 10am-4pm. You can use this versatile 12" x 12" block to make a full quilt, a mini quilt, a pillow, or a table runner. We chose to go with the table topper using Sunday Supper from Sweetwater which is available here in the Shoppe.

The pattern is one of Jennifer's own designs so it is only available with class registration. She's excited to share her skills with all of you and you will leave Jennifer's class with basic foundation paper piecing techniques.

Jennifer-Ball-Foundation-Piecing (1)

Once you've mastered the basic techniques, you might start feeling the creative urge to tackle something like this giraffe quilt by Violet Craft that Jennifer recently finished and showed us at one of our "What's For Breakfast?" Events.

Breakfast-Club-April-5

On a side note we made up a cute and simple table runner for Summer!

Beginning-Quilting-Hollyhill (1)

We just love that spoon, fork and knives print from Sweetwater's Sunday Supper collection! How many of you have a patio table? I said from the day this collection arrived that it was the perfect collection for Summer table tops, table runners, pillows and even patio chair cushions to spruce up your outdoor dining!

Alright, that's it from yours truly. We are cleaning out even more items for yet another UnPacking Sale this week in addition to our fabric sale! You have to follow us in our daily email to find out about sales ladies and gentlemen so be sure to subscribe here!

The Story Comes Alive...

18118450_1782560465093252_6916569547502716686_n
Seeew...

I have often thought of the Shoppe as one giant story. We have had many chapters over the last 12 years, but out of all of them...I think this new location is the most charming. Every great story includes a peaceful setting, a cast of characters, a theme and of course, a...happily ever after. Is this not gorgeous?

I appreciate how things come to life with all of the behind-the-scenes work. Whether it's a theme park production, a quilt store or even a bakery...there is always much work that goes into creating an imaginative space. BTW....when that choir chimes in at 2:52 seconds, I melt. Pixie dust galore!

If you follow us on Instagram, you may have seen some of the clips I posted recently. The show is Disney's all new "Happily Ever After" fireworks show that premiered in the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort just last week! It is only the third show in the park's 46 year history! Word on the street is that it's more than just projections...they have made every window on Cindy's castle come to life. It's crazy!

And speaking of fireworks....

Garden-Delights-Applique-Flower

The blooms of this new Applique Flower quilt remind me of a firework as it bursts in the sky!

Of course only I would think that way.

The "Mothership" and Christine have been working on this latest project by Jason Yenter over the last week. I absolutely love the gray background they are using! Sophisticated and classy! These beautiful floral prints remind us of Liberty of London or London Lawn fabrics.

Garden-Delights-Gray-Sky

Jan and Christine figure if they work on ten of these petals a day they will have the over 100 needed for this quilt...finished in no time! I know they can do it because I BELIEVE! The amount of work in this quilt is another reason why I believe that finished quilts should never be undervalued when being sold. For those who under price their quilts for the sake of being "nice"...you are undervaluing your work and the art of others....stop. LOL.  I'll say it if nobody else will.

The pattern for the Applique Flower can be found in Jason Yenter's new book, Garden Delights which is available by clicking here to order. Yes we ship and yes, there is even a pick up option for local customers.

Garden-Fresh-Quilts-Image (1)

All of the projects in this book are made with the new Garden Delights collection by Gray Sky Studio for In The Beginning. The collection of fabric will arrive in late June but we've got these gorgeous 2.5" Strip Rolls from In The Beginning right now! Two of the patterns in the book, Strippy Weave and Four Patch, use the 2.5" strip roll...seeew get them now before they are gone!

Isn't it a vision? Good job Jason and crew!

Garden-Delights-Gray-Sky-Studio-Jelly-Roll

Oh look....here are my cast of characters now!  While my dad and I got a new cabinet into place for an upcoming Christmas display behind them (gasp...I know, we are already making changes) Jan and Christine are busy as bees working nightly on this stunning quilt!

Mom-Christine

For the record, I promised them some cinnamon roll dough from the bakery next door if they helped me make the story come to life with a photo op.

Since they cooperated seeew well, I merrily headed over to our neighbors, Lux Sucre Desserts and surprised Brandon & Chanelle with my request!

Chanelle-Brandon-Lux

Don't you love it when your neighbors just pop their head in your back window???

Clearly I don't have any boundaries.

They are smiling of course.

BTW...they make these delicious Cinnamon Rolls every Saturday morning and they are usually gone by 12pm. Just sayin' get here early if you want one or call them to place an order for pick up! I found this picture below on their Instagram! You should follow them @luxsucredesserts!

Now that I have you drooling and hungry, I'm going to remind you to join us all out here for our Grand Opening Festival on Saturday, June 24, 2017!  We are still finalizing all of the plans, but I'm in the mood to celebrate! Everyone was posting how sad they were when we closed our previous location seeew let's see you all get excited! I can't be the only one getting excited in this relationship!

That's all I have for today...but I want to thank you for helping us to create a new chapter out here in Charbonneau. It takes people to make any dream a reality and you all definitely have your part in the cast! Remember to always reach out for your own "Happily Ever After" and stay seeew-cial! ~ Brian

The Mother's Celebration Brunch Re-Cap And Blog Give-Away Winner!

Great-Granny-Squared

Seeew...

Today we're happy to share Jan's featured project for our "What's For Breakfast? Mother's Celebration Brunch"which was held this past weekend here at the Shoppe!

But first...in celebration of Mother's Day....

Um...what am I trying to say here exactly? LOL.

As you might know by now, we offer our "What's For Breakfast?" event each month and each month, Jan  comes up with something cute as her featured project. Enter this cutie...

May-Breakfast-Club-Project-3

For our Mother's Celebration Brunch, she wanted to feature something that would not just be cute, but practical for our guests who joined us. Something they could use immediately once they got home! Thus, this super cute pincushion - pictured above - was a hit!

Mom-breakfast-club (3)

For most of our "What's For Breakfast?" events Jan provides a kit for her featured project and then attendees take it home and complete it. However, for this event she went the extra mile (literally there was a road trip involved) to do all of the prep-work so that our guests could finish this project while they were here.

Our next "What's For Breakfast?" will be Saturday, June 10 2017 from 9am-11am. Click here to register. We reveal her selected project at the event, so be sure to register now! We'd love to have you join us as new faces are welcome all the time! You can sign up for just one, or you can come to them all...it's always up to you! Just know...these projects are available to attendees only unless otherwise noted.

May-Breafast-Club-20

As you can see a few people were excited to get started and Jan is always happy to help!

Mom-breakfast-club

A few folks were mesmerized by the intricate embellishments they were about to create! You'd think they were studying an organism.

May-Breakfast-Club-22 (1)

Others appeared to be distracted at what was under the table....

May-Breakfast-Club-21

I sure hope it wasn't this little dude......

May-Breakfast-Club-Squirrel

Relax. It wasn't. LOL. But he does come by the huge windows of our classroom to see what's happening!

May-Breakfast-Club-12

See Jayne with her pincushion.

Be like Jayne and finish your project! LOL.

Side Note: Jayne seems to surround herself with winners because three of the day's winners...were from her table. 

The moral of this story? Always...sit with Jayne.

Farm-Girls-May

After the projects were completed it was time for a "Sharing Is Caring" session. 

I'm kidding. It's not really called that....but it could be! LOL.

It was the day of Jan's Farm Girl Vintage B.O.M. shares! These ladies (pictured above) all participated in either the Farm Girl Vintage or Barn Girl Vintage program Jan offered last year. We appreciate them taking the time to share their creations and we look forward to seeing them again during our Wrap Up Party which we will announce soon!

Mother's-Day-Share

It's also always nice to see what projects each of you have been working on and this month we had quite a few people bring in their favorite projects! Pictured above are a few that I was able to capture!

Now...for the moment many of you are probably waiting for on this post! The winner announcement of the Guernsey Charm Pack! With the help of the Random Number Generator, the winner is: Roberta Fosterman! Roberta wrote:

"I love your videos in your blog. They make me smile. Agree with Jayne's comment. There is nothing like living in Long Beach, WA. Blue skies, breezes and the sound of the surf. The best of times for creating treasures."

Be sure to tune in often as you never know when we will host another give-away!

Finally, I want to wish my own Mom a Happy Mother's Day! Without her creativity none of this would even happen! She continues to persevere and create and I am very thankful for all that she does!

Thank you to all of the women who joined us this weekend and Happy Mother's Day to all of you too! Leave a comment below and tell us what you thought!

Remember...stay Seeew-cial! ~ Brian

Another Day of Sun, Another Day For A Blog-Give-Away!

Umbrella-pic
Seeew...

Do you like our umbrella? It's "another day of sun" here in Oregon and another chance for a blog give-away! But first, it's just not quite a sunny day out here without dancing on some cars! After all we have a very large parking lot!

Oh yes, you had to know it was coming! How could I not pay tribute to one of my all-time favorite movies of 2016?

Is that just not the best??? I can't imagine the amount of work it took to get that sequence filmed! My favorite is the gal in the yellow dress with her dramatic poses.

You know what else I think about on a sunny day?

Coney Island.

More specifically this gorgeous Coney Island Fat Quarter Bundle from none other than the fabulous Fig Tree. With just one look at this bundle it's easy to imagine weathered boardwalks, beautiful beaches, carnival games and surprise...a QUILT! Summer seriously cannot get here fast enough...just don't be too hot!

Coney-Island-Fat-Quarter-Bundle (1)

A sunny day couldn't have timed iteself anymore perfectly than it did today because the "Mothership" has also finished kits for our brand new Sunny Sunday Supper Table Runner sample (pictured below)! You will need the book, Farm Girl Vintage by Lori Holt to complete the project. Of course as my mom always does...she goes the extra mile with the details! She's even individually packaged the blocks to help you with block placement when you receive your kit!

These kits won't be around for long seeew be sure to pick one up on your next visit! Don't wait. I seriously say this every time and even though we have a website to order from as soon as you see it, there are those who wait a month later...and then they are gone. Seeew get it when you see it remains my motto!

Sunflower-Runner

Speaking of Farm Girl Vintage....in addition to our Farm Girl Vintage B.O.M. (block-of-the-month) that we ran for 15 months last year, the "Mothership" also created our Barn Girl Vintage B.O.M. As if it wasn't enough to make all of those blocks three times, Jan (a.k.a the Mothership) and Christine sewed a fourth set for Barn Girl!

Barn-Girl-Vintage-Susie

Well would ya look at that! Customer Suzie R. (pictured above), being the radiant bursts of sunny days that she is, brought in her finished quilt from the program to share with us! Congratulations Suzie! Suzie is a fairly new quilter and she did a fantastic job! I also have to applaud Jan & Christine again on the color selection for these blocks! Now...we just need to get our sample finished! Chop, chop! LOL. If you missed out on the Farm Girl Vintage last time, don't worry...we will run it again as soon as we get to sit down and think!

Blog-Give-Away (1)

Seeew now that you get a feel for what brings a little bit of sunshine into our day, I'm going to ask you what brings the sun shining through to your day! Leave a comment below before 11:59pm on Thursday, May 11 and you just might win this beautiful Guernsey Charm Pack by Brenda Riddle of Acorn Quilt & Gift Co. for Moda.

Join Us For Our Mother's Celebration Brunch! Saturday, May 13 12pm-2pm! Sunday Supper Giveaway Winner Announcement

Breakfast-Club-May-Logo

Seeew...

One of the events we most look forward to every month is our "What's For Breakfast?" event! For the month of May we kick it up a notch for our Mother's Celebration Brunch on Saturday, May 13 from 12pm-2pm. Mom's are special and what a better way to share the day before Mother's Day with a delicious brunch while enjoying all things quilting! We do have some seats left so it's not too late to register!  To register click here or call us at 503-694-8052.

For our "What's For Breakfast?" event Jan always shares her featured project, which is kept under wraps until the reveal! I can tell you that this month's project is going to make a fabulous gift for a favorite creative mom in your life...or maybe even yourself! The best part, you will be creating the project during the event! Pictured above are some of the various projects Jan has featured over the last several months. The way to acquire the project is by attending the event. On rare occasions Jan may offer a kit for purchase outside of the event (as she did with the Spring Daisy Wool Mat) but for the most part we keep the projects exclusive to the event.

Breakfast-Club-April2017

One of the highlights of the event is the sharing of favorite projects from all of you! Of course we always love to see what you're making with fabrics, patterns and kits from us here at Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe, but it's also fun to see the variety of projects that mean so much to you from your own stories! Since 2014 there have been quite a few friendships made and it's always nice to meet new people! We are firm believers that the way you ensure there are quilt shops available in your future is to participate in one and support them.  Everyone is welcome to join us!

Before I get too much further I should add that Jennifer Ball (pictured with the Giraffe paper piecing quilt above) will be teaching a Foundation Paper Piecing class on Saturday, July 29. Registration will be available soon on our website seeew be watching for it!

Sherri-McConnell-Workshop

Speaking of workshops, Moda designer Sherri McConnell of A Quilting Life will be teaching TWO workshops here at the Shoppe in September! Attend just one workshop or sign up for both! Sherri is an amazing designer and a wealth of knowledge with two books under her belt, a blog and fabric collections with Moda! This fee includes all instruction by Sherri and a catered lunch! Students also receive a 20% discount on class supplies purchased from our Shoppe! Click here to register for one of her workshops or call us at 503-694-8052.

Sunday-Supper-Charm-Pack

I'm going to keep it rather simple today but I know you've all been patiently waiting for the Sunday Supper Charm Pack winner announcement! Seeew without further delay, with the help of the Random Number Generator, the winner is:

Paula Overfield!

Paula said...

Brian, your enthusiasm is contagious. I am super excited to see that you will be offering the Vintage Farm Girl BOM again. I was so disappointed to not get in last time. The new shop is super cute and inviting and much closer to my home.

Congratulations Paula! Be sure to contact the Shoppe to arrange pick up of your prize! Thank you to everyone who participated and be watching for the next one! If you would like a Sunday Supper Charm pack or some Sunday Supper fabric, you can buy it all from us by clicking here!

Before I go, some folks have been confused as to where we are in the Chabronneau district. A.) The Charbonneau District is a planned community within the city limits of Wilsonville. We are no more than 10-15 minutes away from our previous location. B.) Once you enter Charbonneau, follow the green signs (which will be on the left hand side of the road) that say "Village Center/Golf Course." C.) Once in the "Village Center" we are at the end of the long white/cream building, under the flagpole.

Building-Store-Front

See this black and white striped umbrella? Well, we are located right next to that. It's an easy find out here and there is far more parking than we could have ever imagined in the previous location! No busy street to turn onto either! It really is bliss! There are also two other quilt shops (Sewn Loverly & Speckled Hen Quilts) in the area with entirely different styles from us. We are all just about 10 minutes from one another.

Stay Seeew-cial! ~ Brian

See What's New In Our Own "Wonderful World of Color!" New Give-Away!

Hollyhill-Quilt-Shoppe-Front-7
Seeew...

You are cordially invited to our Grand Opening Festival Saturday, July 15 2017 here in our new location! If the pictures in today's blog are any indication, the day promises to be a spectacular day full of creativity! Seeew mark that one down on your calendars folks because I'm all in for a celebration! How about you? In fact, I was looking for a birthday cake image and as I dug through my old pictures, I came upon this classic! The pic is however ... pre-cupcake obsession. I was a bean pole.

Keep reading and leave a comment for a chance to win below!

10003308_10202945820982731_1932413674_n

To be able to stand on Main Street U.S.A. without a soul in the early morning hours is an honor. This particular picture was during the 25th Anniversary (1996/97) in which they completely transformed Cinderella's Castle into a giant birthday cake! I can remember the decorating process took months and involved several cranes.  Look at how the hub (the area in front of Cinderella's castle) has changed over the years. In the last few years they've completely removed all of those trees.

If there's one thing I know for sure it is that this new store is our own "world of color." We've been working on one section at a time and I think seeew far, this one below is my favorite! Fabrics from Kimberbell, Lake House, Chloe's Closet, American Jane, Bonnie & Camille along with Lori Holt all take up residence in this section. There are seeew many positives with this location with my favorite being the 20 foot ceilings! This new store is the size of our very first store we had from 2005-2008 but it has far more light! If you're familiar with our original store, we packed it in!

Hollyhill-Quilt-Shoppe-Lori-Holt-Sew-Cherry-2

Jan (a.k.a. the mothership) and Christine made those adorable Farm Girl Vintage blocks for our Block of The Month program. There are 48 total in all and they made all of them three times...one set for my clothesline, one set for Christine's quilt and one set for my mom's (which we will hang in the store when finished) If you missed out the first time, I can spread the word now that she will be offering the Farm Girl B.O.M. again. You'll want to participate because Jan's color selection is fabulous (you will see below) as well as the additional instructions she provides! As soon as she shares the details with me, I'll be the first to let you know! Do I ever not...let you know??

Farm-Girl-Vintage-Cynthia

Pictured above is long-time customer, Cynthia V. with her Farm Girl Vintage Quilt. Cynthia participated in the B.O.M. the last time we offered it and was thrilled to get all of our blocks put together! Cynthia brought it to last Saturday's "What's For Breakfast?"

BTW "What's For Breakfast?" is the new name of our monthly Breakfast Club. The fee to attend includes a breakfast snack and an entire kit for Jan's featured project! This month everyone learned a new skill while making this adorable towel (below) Placement of the hexi's was completely up to each person. Our next "What's For Breakfast" will be the Mother's Day Brunch Edition on Saturday, May 13 from 12pm-2pm. For this one we are going all out...more food and a fabulous secret project! Register here!

Hop-Skip-And-A-Jump-2 (2)

We decided to do something a little different with our Vintage Posies A'La Mode Quilt we've not done before...and that was to put it over a table. Actually this quilt is huge at 78-1/2" x 88-1/2." Our complete kit includes ample fabric to complete the entire top and binding, along with the pattern. You can order our kit by clicking here. Of course, when we thought of vintage, we immediately thought of American Jane. When Sandy Klop was here teaching a class, I asked her, "Have you ever thought of Hop, Skip & A Jump as a name for a fabric collection?" She was thrilled and the rest is history! Seeew this collection holds a special place in our hearts. LOL. P.S. I finally found a home for our little red wagon!

Sunny-Chestnut-Street-Kit (1)

The "Mothership" loves Fig Tree. In fact, Fig Tree fabrics from Moda have been a constant around here since time began. Our Sunny Chestnut Street Quilt finally got her beauty treatment and was quilted by the lovely Trish Hevern. Fig Tree's Chestnut Street and her new Coney Island are in the Shoppe now. As for the quilt, there are only two kits left to order here

Sweetwater-Sunday-Supper

Pictured above is one of my all-time favorite collections for Summer! I cannot say enough great things about the new Sunday Supper from Sweetwater which is here in the Shoppe as we speak. Err...type! Sunday Supper is perfect for creating projects to maybe use outdoors with your Sunday night bbq's or entertaining on your outdoor patio set. That Aqua, Navy, Taupe, Grassy Green and Sunny Yellow motif is hot right now and I just know the fabrics will make a fabulous table runner, placemats, and much more!  P.S. Yes, we ordered Authentic Etc. which premieres I believe in September!

Here's a little project we are working on! Do you recognize it???

Seeew...what do you do with a fabulous little combination of yellows?

Um...create a pineapple quilt! Hellooooo! I'm all about enchantment and nothing screams enchantment more than the mystical pineapple! I am in love with our Mod Pineapples Quilt Kit and I'm pretty sure that I know exactly what I am going to tie it in with in a future post! Long arm quilter and friend Melissa Hoffman was by the Shoppe the other day and we discussed how we wanted it quilted. Lots of lovely white space...don't you think?

Mods-Pineapple-Quilt-Kit
