June 6, 2020
This is a time full of change for all of us.  As you may have heard, this week  I announced that I have decided to close my "brick and mortar" retail shop. I am not retiring, I will still be designing fabric but just easing up a bit by eliminating the demands on me that the retail shop requires. Our internet business will continue
and, in August, we will move to a new location just down the street better suited to the mail-order business.  You can read my entire letter to our customers here.

Make sure you continue to read on to learn about this month's lesson in my border print fabric series along with a download for a free pattern.  Plus, you will get a look ahead at our web specials coming up this month.

Yes, it truly is a time of change but, as you will read in this newsletter, we, like you, have not abandoned that which has brought us together, our love of quilting and the joy and friendship it has brought us.
Border Print Lesson #4 - Diamond, Part I
The traditional tumbling blocks or baby blocks quilt pattern has long been part of American quilting with its illusion of stacked cubes or blocks created with the careful use of the fabrics' value. In this month's lesson, I will talk about how you can create this with diamonds cut from border print fabrics. This will just be the first part of the diamonds lesson. Since they are my favorite shape, it seems I had so much to say that we will have part 2 coming up in July.
