Cluck Cluck Sew Trunk Show


Skipping Squares
Several months ago, I arranged with Allison of Cluck Cluck Sew, to bring home her quilts from Quilt Market and display them in our shop.  They are now hanging in the shop, and daily I look at them and cannot decide which I want to make next!!  It is such a difficult decision, you will see :)  Right before Quilt Market Allison showed this version of  Kaleidoscope on her blog and I fell in LOVE!  It is made using Summer House by Moda (due out this Aug), what do you think, trust me it is even better in person (having it quilted helps too!)?  And another I was excited to see in person, was this version of Skipping Squares shown on her blog in April.  There are more to see, including an AMAZING version of Chain Reaction that Wendy made using this print from Michael Miller.

Of Course I Will Help You....

A couple of months ago, I read a post on a very talented persons' blog ( asking for help getting ready for Spring International Quilt Market.  I contacted her immediately and offered my assistance (I mean of course I offered to help, I would have been crazy not to).  In addition to stitching a model of one of her embroidery patterns, I volunteered to sew models for her using her new fabric line.  Well five days ago, Sarah received yardage of her fabric line called Children at Play for Michael Miller Fabrics;  just in time to whip up some items to display in her booth at Quilt Market.  Meadow is  the beautiful colorway I had the pleasure of sewing into a darling quilt and patchwork pillow for her booth.  But I have to admit, it is the boy fabrics I cannot wait to get my hands on (as I have 3 boys of my own)!! 

I just love Quilt Market, it is so fun to see all the fun new fabrics that we will be able to purchase in a couple of months.  However, I do not like the two months or more wait until I can actually have the new fabrics in my hands! 

This fabric line is just one of the things you can look forward to in the next few months.  Sandy will be releasing EIGHT, yes eight, new patterns at Quilt Market.  So next week we will have them in the shop for all to enjoy!  Included in these eight patterns, is a new seasonal series that is ABSOLUTELY TO DIE FOR, a pattern for some 'wearables', a new layer cake/charm square friendly quilt pattern, and more !!!!!  So stay tuned, because I will be showing a sneak peek later in the week!

Things are cookin' at the store!

Things were cookin' on Saturday and the store wasn't even open yet!  Over the last month our employees all became Moda Certified and received their Moda aprons and pins.  The aprons were cute but I knew our employees could really spice them up, so we had ourselves a little contest.

Rules:   Take your apron and do whatever you want with it, as long as "Moda Certified" was still visible.

So, yesterday we had a fun employee breakfast where each employee (except Wendy and Cecilia who were not able to be with us) unveiled their creations!  Everyone voted (secret ballot of course) for their top 3, points were awarded and the winner of $50 and supreme bragging rights was announced!

 and the winner was Valayne!  Work it girl!  I think her  fabulous sweetheart neckline pur her right over the top!
Truth be told  - our employees are all winners!
L-R  Linda, Judy, Holly, Shelly, Nancy, Valayne
P.S.  Thank you mother nature for a PERFECT Saturday!  Wow, what a day to be in the village.

A Little Birdie Told Me....

When I saw these darling little birdies, I had to share them with you.  How cute are these?!?  And so fun and easy to make - just two 10" squares!  I saw one person say she was making a whole flock and decorating a 'spring tree' - great idea.  Me, I had to hurry and whip one up to display at Pine Needles

Now through the end of May when you come to Pine Needles, make sure to find our little birdie, then mention this post and win a little somethin'.  Now that's a great idea!  (one per customer)

If you would like to make a little feathered friend for yourself, go here.
