Much Excitement at Quilt Market!
Majean and I just returned from the Spring Quilt Market in Kansas City and we are excited about all the new fabrics, patterns, projects and block-of-the month programs we saw. Over the next few weeks, we'll be sharing everything with you.  
Here are a few pictures from Market. As we receive the fabric and patterns, we will post additional details and links to our website. 
We stopped by to say Hello to Marcia Derse. She's standing in front of several new lines we have ordered!  Majean with big new Wing and a Prayer Design Pillow (Pattern not yet available)  Marsha with Brigitte Heitland, Designer of Zen Chic. We have purchased this entire line (coming in the fall) 
New Block-of-the-Month Programs!
We have selected many new beautiful BOM programs. The first of these is shown below. We think this will sell out quickly, so be sure to reserve your spot now! 
Snowman Sampler - Includes Backing!
This SUPER CUTE BOM program incorporates dozens of beautiful fabrics in a whimsical design sure to please!

This is hard to believe! She sure doesn't look it!
I'm glad to be carrying mom's legacy with the fabric store, and for all the things she has taught me about sewing, quilting and life! 

Here's the announcement that was published in the Blade-Empire.
Help Peggy Doyen celebrate her 90th birthday on May 29th with a card shower! Cards may be sent to Peggy Doyen, 513 W 5th Street, Concordia, KS 66901.  
Happy Birthday, Mom!

If you wonder what Cutting Diagrams are . . . they are a Fabric Essentials exclusive . . . and a visual guide to how best cut the fabric so all the pieces will fit!
Here's a quick peak at one fabric from one kit.
