Special Offers On Primitive Threads Quilt Kit & Bundles

It won't be too long now until my new Primitive Threads fabrics will be delivered to your local quilt shop!!  So jazzed and excited about this very special collection, and it seems many of you are jazzed about it as well.  I've had a lot of email inquiries and requests for a kit for this quilt.

First of all.....please, please ask for this fabric collection and quilt pattern at your local quilt shop.  You know I want you to always shop there first!!!  It's very important to support our quilt shops because we want them to be around for years and years to come.  Many shops will be kitting this quilt, too.  Primitive Threads is due to arrive in your LQS in May.  

For many of you, your LQS is hundreds of miles away from home and/or doesn't carry historic prints...so...with that in mind, I have two special offers for you!

I am taking ***PRE-ORDERS*** for both the Primitive Threads quilt kit and Fat Quarter bundles!

Click here to place your order for a Primitive Threads Fat Quarter bundle.  You'll only be charged $5.50 shipping....anywhere in the U.S.!!  
My special for the Primitive Threads quilt kit is....with this PRE-ORDER only....receive the quilt pattern FREE and pay only $5.50 shipping anywhere in the U.S.!

Click here to read more details about the Primitive Threads quilt kit.

Special offers are for a limited time.  Order no later than Tuesday, April 17th to be guaranteed a quilt kit and/or bundle.  

Your order will ship in May as soon as I receive the fabric.  I know how anxious you are to receive your quilting goodies (I'm the same way!) so I do my best to get your items to you as soon as possible.  

Thank you for your continued support of my patterns and fabric.  Because of YOU I am able to continue to bring you traditional quilt patterns and historic fabrics through Marcus Fabrics!

I can finally share the first quilt in my new Tokens of the Past: Yuletide Greetings pattern called Deck The Halls.

This was great fun to design as I played with the different colors and shades of each fabric.  I added a twist throwing in the black triangles and set the quilt center on point.  Love, love how it turned out!!  

And now...the quilt top is off to my quilter, Ronda.  This is quilt two of three included in the Yuletide Greetings pattern, and hopefully, when I return from my trip to Massachusetts,  the third one will be complete as well.  

The quilts feature my Pieceful Pines fabric collection and are made using one 10" x 10" precut plus additional yardage for blocks, borders, and other fun stuff.  The pattern and precuts will be available in May....I think.  It won't be too much longer!
My Primitive Threads sample yardage arrived on Monday and I've begun starching the yardage in preparation of making the quilt.  I won't be able to begin piecing the quilt until I return from MA which is kinda killing me!  I am so looking forward to the trip...but...I have brand new fabric and want to play with it!  Sigh.....too many good things all happening at once....champagne problems, Pam!

Look for special offerings for Primitive Threads in my next post!!  

Until then....don't worry...stitch yourself happy!

Secret Sewing and a Road Trip

Busy doing some secret sewing this week.   These cutie pieces are for one of three quilts in my new 

Tokens of the Past: Yuletide Greetings pattern...coming soon!

The good folks at Marcus Fabrics are preparing 10 inch precuts of my Pieceful Pines fabrics, and I am making three quilts using one 
10 inch precut plus yardage for borders, binding and such.

Can't wait to share the quilts designs with you.....soon.  It shouldn't be too long....I hope...I think.  

In the meantime, I'm about to pack boxes and suitcases to do some traveling. 


First up is a visit to Cape Cod....be till my heart!   I love Cape Cod and am very anxious to return.  My hubby and I will be visiting Boston, too, and then home for a month.    I will be visiting the Bayberry Quilter Guild of Cape Cod March 27th thru 29th.  Lecture and workshops will be at Our Lady of the Cape Church, Brewster, MA.  I'd love to see you if you're in the Cape Cod area.

In April, I'll be boarding the Liberty of the Seas to teach on a Carribbean quilting cruise along with fellow designers and friends Julie Hendricksen of JJ Stitches and Carol Hopkins of Carol Hopkins Designs!!  What fun!!  Looking forward to the warm weather and sunshine.

If you missed out on going on this years cruise, fear not!  
I have been invited to return for a 2019 cruise with fellow Marcus Fabrics quilt designer and friend, Paula Barnes of Red Crinoline Quilts and Connie Tesene of Country Threads!  Wow!  Another awesome line-up.  

Cruise dates are April 7 thru 14th cruising to Galveston, Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel.  

If you're interested...don't wait to contact Stitchin' Heaven Travel and get your name on the list.  You can reach them at 903/638-6915 and at StitchinHeavenTravel.com

Think about it...what fun, good food, great destinations and 3 wonderful quilts all await you!

Later this year, I'll be giving lectures and workshops in Georgia, Illinois, Missouri and Tennessee.  I'll post more news on these trips as time grows closer.

Back to secret sewing.  Oh...and I'm still quite diligent spending one hour early in the morning on my super secret scrappy project!  I'm 1/3 of the way there!  Progress feels so good.

Be well.....
