It's been a charming week

If I count small projects as finishes, I have had a very busy week.  Dan and Rhonda at The Rogers Sewing Center carry a nice variety of Moda charm packs.  For those who aren't familiar with charm packs, they are packages of 42-5" squares of Moda fabric.  It's a wonderful way to get a sneak peak of an upcoming Moda line since they are normally sent to shops before the line ships to the shops.

This is a table topper I made from French General's newest line, Maison de Garance.

Here is a cute wall hanging using the pack Bliss by Bonnie and Camille.

And here's a wall hanging using a free pattern from Barbara Brackman with April Cornell's Prayer Cloth line.  It could easily be expanded into a throw using more than one charm pack.

It was hard to choose just which pack to use since they have such a nice selection.  All the samples can be seen at their shop on 8th Street in Rogers, Arkansas.  They also have the patterns available.  Yes---they are all quilted and bound!

I will be teaching some classes at the Rogers Sewing Center as soon as I can get them some dates.  Keep checking their website for dates and times.

My friend Darlene of Sew Graceful Quilting recently made the decision to devote all her time to her longarm quilting business.  As she wrote on her blog "changes--we love them and we hate them."  I'm sure her friends from The Rabbit's Lair will miss her but also am sure everyone will be glad that she has more time to devote to her quilting studio.  I expect the deadline to have a quilt quilted for Christmas giving this year is past but that just means I'll be way ahead of the game for next year!  Here are just a few examples of the beautiful work she does.

Speaking of changes - I'd better go and change a couple of fabrics I've chosen for my next Civil War Bride quilt block.  I promise to have a block finished to show next week!

  1. I am so glad that you will be teaching at the Rogers Sewing Center. Please update us on your teaching schedule as it becomes available. Darlene's quilting is fantastic. I hope some day I can make a quilt that would be worthy of her quilting services.
