Last Week For This Great Special!
Here, just in time for your Christmas enjoyment, is Santa Time and the Snowman Row Quilts! Brought to you by our friends at the Colorado Quilt Design Co., these patterns are everyone's favorites! For the next week when you buy one or both of them, your s/h will be only 99 cents, so order today!
Dress up your home for the holidays with any of the three easy-to-piece quilts featured in this pattern. The large, fat- quarter friendly quilt measures 62" x 78" and features four Santas, four trees, four stars and four sets of presents along with a double border with stars in the corners. Also included are directions for two smaller quilts.
Also featured for your early winter projects is our popular Snowman Row!
Too cold to go outside and build a snowman? Well, do it inside with our Snowman Row pattern! These are the cutest little guys around for this winter! Easy to piece, the Snowman Row quilt is sewn in seven vertical rows with a combination of eleven snowmen, three trees and fourteen pairs of mittens. Each of the blue, red, gold, and three of the green fabrics, are used in different combinations for the snowmen hats and vests, as well as the mittens. Use your creativity when combining your fabrics together to make a beautiful 62.5" x 80.5" quilt. This pattern also includes directions for a smaller quilt and wallhanging. A fun quilt with easy piecing and applique directions, it works and looks great with your cottons or flannels. Makes a wonderful gift! So when the weather outside is frightful, sit by the fire that's so delightful, and sew your Snowman Row!

Just Ask Kaye
Here is another tip submitted by one of our readers regarding ink on a quilt.
Reading your Q & A in regards to removing the marker ink from a quilt, etc., try soaking the fabric in milk. I used skim and let it soak for a few minutes. Rinsed with cold water. Worked great for me and thought your readers might be interested. Betty
Thanks for the tip Betty, I'm sure our readers will find it helpful.
Q: I know what a walking foot for my sewing machine is, however I have never heard of a rolling foot. What is it and is it used for anything besides sewing in the ditch?
A: A rolling foot is an alternative to an Ultraglide Foot. People use it for more control and less friction when sewing on imitation leather, vinyl, elastic, and velvet.
Q: I had to move and all my material is packed away in boxes. Some of them I put in storage, in HOT Texas weather. I didn't get climate controlled storage. So my question is, will it hurt the material to stay packed away in boxes, whether in the heat or not, for a long period of time?
A: As long as the fabric is dry, it shouldn't cause a problem. Don't store it in plastic, as it can't breathe. Pillowcases are good, as are sheets, or even boxes. It will be like Christmas for you when you finally get it all unpacked!
