April 27 - May 6, 2017 are the dates for the Search for the Stars Shop Hop. There are 12 shops around Michigan participating, but not so far away that it would impossible to collect all 12 patterns!  Each shop has their own star and you can get the pattern for free...provided you have the Passport which is available at Quilt N Go for just $5! 

The shops will also have kits available for purchase for only $3 and each shop will also show the way they finished a project using the 12 star blocks.

Quilt N Go made a wallhanging by adding sashing and a border.  Gold stars were also used to give a little added interest. 

Stop by this week to get your passport and collect your pattern and kit from Quilt N Go!  And then be sure to show us what you have made with your stars. 

Happy quilting!

 



A Cute Rag Quilt

clock April 1, 2017 13:38 by author Melinda

Last Saturday, one of our customers (Mary Bissell) stopped in and showed me this awesome rag quilt she was making for her granddaughter.  I've done rag quilts and seen lots of them, but this was the first time seeing one this adorable!  Mary told me her horse was made from a Simplicity pattern which evidently are sometimes a challenge to find since they sell so quickly.

 

 

I was so excited to see this "new" way of doing a rag quilt, so I called my friend right away and told her all about it!  She started laughing and said she had made quite a few of these and had lots of the patterns!  Wouldn't this be such a cute gift for a new baby?  Thanks, Mary, for showing me something I had never seen before.

Do you have a project that you would like to share with us?  Bring & Brag is coming up on 4/15 at 1:30!  Come show us what you have been working on and share your inspiration.

Until next time...quilt on!
