Jan made a really cute Lap Quilt using 2 charm packs and 1 yard of fabric for body of quilt. Add the binding (1/2) yard and 2-3/4 yards for backing. If you purchase a charm pack you can get the pattern free!! She used Moda Migration charm packs. The quilt would be good for a male gift.

And I mean really quick! All you need is one panel of Cuddle Teddies flannel (the panel has borders included), backing, binding and batting. Sandwich it and quilt it! Oh, yes, add the binding. This will take you minutes! Well, maybe an hour. Come in and see the sample Deb made. The panel is 35 x 44

Santa and his helper look really busy! They must have been melting. It was 86 outside.
We had a great day with all our customers.
By the end of the day Santa and his helper I think were getting bored. They got out a potato gun and started shooting potatoes into the field.
Then it was quitting time so inflatable Santa had to come down some how so why not the potato gun?
That Santa is done until next July.

We just got in our Aurifil thread display. If you have not tried this thread, you are missing out on a great extra long Egyptian cotton 50 weight thread which gives excellent results when stitching blocks. The "secret" here is that the fine thread allows you to stitch a perfect flat seam.
