Christmas in July? YES! Quilting Takes Time!

We know you’re all savvy quilters, familiar with the time it takes to whip up the beautiful, handmade touches that make the holidays truly special.  July is the perfect time to start your holiday sewing, so avoid the stress of last-minute sewing and join in the summer sewing fun!

Gift Yourself with a Kit and/or the Block of the Month Club!

It’s easy to fulfill your wish for festive quilts with our Gingham Stars Quilt Kit and Midnight Clear Block of the Month Club! The sight of these stunning quilts makes us want to cuddle up next to a fire with hot chocolate despite the summer heat here in Texas – they’re that lovely. Which is your favorite? Don’t worry – we won’t tell if you treat yourself and decide to get them BOTH!
