We are getting ready to start a new BOM (block of the month). It is called Storytellers. We all know the stories, but how many of us know the women behind the stories? The Storytellers is a gorgeous 12 month Block of the Month Program honoring the female authors of some very classic books. Each pattern has interesting tidbits about ladies who changed the literary scene. For instance, did you know Mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein when she was only nineteen years old?
Finished size is 102 x 102 We can mail each month to you. Sign up now. We will start this block of the month. September 1st. It is 23.99 per month

Marlene brought in a show and tell for us today. She is using the scraps from her Hugs & Kisses block of the month that she is doing here at QNG to make miniature blocks for a baby quilt. Great idea Marlene. Can't wait to see it all finished.

I am working on a new pattern for a table runner called Afternoon Delight. I have been looking at a couple of great green fabrics that we have and decided that this would be a great project for that fabric. What do you think? The binding will be the dark green.

Be sure to stop by Quilt N Go to check out our collection of patriotic fabrics to compliment your holiday table. It's not too late to complete a quick 10 minute table runner for your picnic setting or surprise everyone with a mini 10 minute runner to top the water tank in the guest bathroom.
While you're shopping, be sure to pick up your copy of the July/August edition of The Country Register! We are pleased to announce that Quilt N Go is a 'featured shop' in this edition! The half page article shares how Ruth got started quilting at the tender age ten under the guidance of her grandmother to her interest in long arm quilting that led teaching classes and establishing her business. Drop by as you are shopping during your Row by Row Experience to get your copy of The Country Register. If Ruth is available, she'd be glad to autograph your copy!
