Just One Star

Join Moda fabrics, their staff and designers, to reach their goal of creating 100 Quilts in 100 days to  comfort soldiers.  In addition to their involvement with the Quilts of Valor Foundation, Moda is challenging quilters to make a block to contribute to the quilts.  Are you up for the challenge?  We are!  Find more information and the block pattern here or come into the shop.  If you want to drop your finished and signed blocks off at Three Crafty Quilters we will send them in for you.  Are you up to the challenge to help those that serve your country?

Don't forget the Quilts of Valor - Under our Wings programs that we will be doing at the shop in April!  Sign up and join in the fun while you create a way to honor our veterans.

New Fabric! Robert Kaufman, Michael Miller and More!

Before I visit the ikea website to order more shelves for the shop, I wanted to share with you what the UPS and Fedex men brought me yesterday.
Besides some new books, more Best Press (I am addicted!), binding tools, needles, etc.. we recieved a box from Robert Kaufman fabrics.  The fabric is so great looking and feels wonderful!

I recieved some Hannukah fabric from Michael Miller, along with some silver Fairy Frost to go with it.
Gypsy Bandana was a line that I fell in love with at Quilt Market.  The designers did such a great schoolhouse presentation - I will have some free patterns available.
There was more, but i didn't get all of the photos clipped for the blog yet, so if you want to see more then come visit the shop!!

Don't forget that the Cuddle/Minky fabric is this week's Quiltmakers Pick - it is on sale 20% off.
