Greetings from Patrick Lose from the Iowa State Fair

Iowa State Fair White Christmas

One of my quilt designs featuring my “White Christmas” collection displayed at the Iowa State Fair. I knew the sledding snowmen print would be great as a fussy-cut fabric and from what I’ve seen from those using it, we all had the same idea smile emoticon Quilted by the insanely talented Jessica Gamez. Please visit Jessica’s Quilting Studio on Facebook.

Thread the Needle Day

Today is National Thread the Needle Day. It is either a day of celebrating sewing, or can metaphorically mean working through two opposing viewpoints and attempting to work through issues together.

Today will be spent going through scraps at home and making a few projects. Share with us how you will be celebrating #ThreadTheNeedleDay for a chance to win a fat quarter bundle of Alex Anderson’s Red Collection.


Happy Fourth of July from RJR Fabrics!

Happy Fourth of July! We celebrated by having a BBQ at the office here in Torrance, California. The wonderful women that work in the office decorated with some of our red, white, and blue quilts for the holiday.


Everyone came together to celebrate our nation’s holiday.

International Picnic Day Celebration!

Picnic Day2

Our winner, Jeanine Zimmerman, for the Pi Day giveaway back in March made this lovely quilt with her fat quarter bundle. We wanted to share with you her quilt top. The baskets reminded me of a picnic and I figured since today is International Picnic Day, perfect time to share!


In celebration of International Picnic Day, I’d like to do a giveaway with two charm pack bundles of Pie Making Day by Brenda Ratliff. Please share with us what you would pack for a lunch picnic excursion in the comments below for a chance to win! There will be 2 winners.
