What's new and exciting at The Quilt Patch!

So much happening here this month! Little Black Dress 2 hit our doorstep the other day! It's so amazingly gorgeous! We haven't made anything using it just yet, but we are thinking about a Variety Show! A great way to showcase the fabric!

Little Black Dress by Basic Grey for Moda

It's been flying out of here without any inspiration, but no worries, we do have another full collection slated to arrive sometime in February or March!
But don't wait too long - cause already we can't re order certain pieces! Sold out and discontinued! That's the fabric industry for you! 
Love it? Buy it now or its gone! Very little goes into reprint now a days.

So Jeanne and I are busy planning for the Spring show season and Spring Quilt Market all at the same time! Spring show season - springy and fresh - Spring Quilt Market - Wintery and snowy!
Heres a sneak peek at some of the new items you will see in our booth at shows this spring:

Berrylicious is a nice large quilt - 68" x 80". Very simple, but delicious! It's a limited edition kit - once the fabric is gone - the kit is gone.

Forever Red is also a limited edition kit - and we only have a  smaller amount than we normally would - so if you really really like this quilt - do not wait!! It's very fast, those small squares....all presewn fabric!! Doesn't get much simpler then that!
This quilt finishes at 56" x 67"
Live Laugh Love is a pattern we have many years back, some of you may remember it done in pastel colors. We decided to revisit this quilt as it was always a favourite! We changed it up a bit, freshened the colours, revamped the pattern.
This quilt finishes at 56" x 68"
I don't have a price on this kit yet - but Jeanne will bring that to me very soon so I can make labels for the kits!

A Charming Chevron Quilt is something we whipped up so you could have another idea of how to use all those delicious charm packs you may be hoarding! We used three charm packs and 2.7 of contrast fabric. That will give you a quilt 59" x 75"
This pattern also has the yardage requirements for a queen size quilt.
The best part....this pattern is only $3!

Here's a quick peek at a new quilt that you won't likely see until the Fall of 2014 - but we will be wholesaling the pattern at Spring Quilt Market:

This quilt is called Snowball Fight!!
It's the perfect lap size for winter - 52" x 64"!

 for the very best NEW thing at The Quilt Patch...........

Meet Tinsel. Jo's new kitten! A rescue cat from the Humane Society! Isn't she just a beauty!

Happy New Year!

Happy 2014!! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday season!! In case you didn't know - I celebrated New Years in the Mayan Riviera!! Ok, alright, truth be known, I babysat my grandchildren while my kids went out...cause quite frankly - Im just too old to stay out until 4am!!
So if you look closely, you will be able to see that I'm wearing the red bikini under that coverup!!!
Oh yes I am!

We had a fabulous holiday and I would love to do it again one day! My grandchildren enjoyed themselves immensely! So did the adults, and I think I may have turned on my daughters 'travelling switch'!

So Martingale complied their list of their top 10 books for 2013 and Tis the Autumn Season was number 4 on that list!!! Yay!!

Our next book - Here Comes Winter will be released in June!! Keep checking our blog, Facebook page and website for the book cover to be shown soon!! It s spectacular if I do say so myself!!
