We hope you all are enjoying the holidays.  I for one have been enjoying them a little too much.  I have been wearing my new exercise pants for few days....forget about exercising, elastic waste bands come in handy when there is a lot of food around. Ok too much information (TMI) I know. Since I am starting my post holiday diet on Monday, I made Sublime Fudge today. It is so fabulous that I had it for dinner.  The recipe is in our Eye Candy quilt book and it was created by Kim Goeckeritz.  Kim is a fantastic cook ... more

What's New

24 Nov 2009

What a busy day! We received 4 sets of strike-offs, plus a few friends brought their Sublime projects by to display......It was like Christmas morning for Jina and I. Our strike-offs are almost perfect! I can't wait to share....and since my husband bought me a new camera and my son finally showed me how to upload photos quickly... Why wait? First, I wanted to show off the necklaces I had made for all the gals that went to quilt market.  This small fabric swatch is from our"Sublime" line.

slippers (300x225)

Finally, pictures of my cute slippers made out of our "Sublime" fabric. Our last line of the year, "Sublime" will be shipped from California this week.  The pattern "Pigs in a blanket" by quilted fish is available now at our warehouse. This is the teepee I took to quilt market, but with our limited space, it never got set up.  The pattern is from our "Eye Candy" quilt book.  I surprised my neice and gave it to her last month for her birthday. more

Check out our Cute little cowgirl.  Made out of our "Wanna be a cowboy" fabric, who says you can only wear your costume on Halloween.  This is Kim and Matt's sweet little girl.  Matt is Mr. everything at our warehouse. He ships everything, knows everything, and fixes everything  and Kim runs our finance department. When they showed me this picture, I had to share it. We were grateful for the great weather Halloween night...notice no snow. *FYI-Our blog now has a RSS feed.  (Thanks for asking Deb) more

All Star Flannel

Snow !?#  We woke up to a frozen tundra this morning. Not quit ready to bring out the snow gear, but at least we have something to celebrate today.  Our "All Star" Flannel is here.  It looks fantastic and feels so soft. And yes, it will make cozy quilts for winter.
