New beginnings

It's a new month, we have spread the "quilting bug" to some new quilters and have some new "stuff" at Quilt N Go.

  The new quilter's hard at work

They're getting the bug




It's spring here and even though we still have to be concerned about a frost at night so we can't put out flowers yet, We got out the fountain. It sounds so nice to hear the water through the OPEN windows. Flowers won't be far off. The hummingbirds have returned and the feeders are up. The gazabo top has been put up and lunch time is now OUT DOORS!

We are having fun putting together coordinating fat eighths by the dozen in packs. We are starting with the 1930's fabrics. You will be able to order them on our website under "Kits"

 
 



Spring or NOT in Michigan

clock April 29, 2009 03:11 by author Ruth

It's that time of year where the weather keeps teasing us with just a taste of Spring and then spits a little snow to remind us who is in control. Michigan, we love it.As you probably have figured out, I'm not the daily blogger that many of you are. Is there such a thing as a seasonal blogger? Anyway the grass is green again and been cut once already. The spring projects are popping up in the store and makes me want to go get flowers. We are working on the website in hopes of having all the fabric up this year. We started the new "Snap Sacks" last month and they went great There will be a new design each month and everything is in the "Sack". (top,back and binding) in several different colorways.    

 

Melissa will be starting her Apron of the month class April 30th and the first apron is really cute.

  I haven't seen the next one yet but knowing Melissa, it will be adorable. You can check out the class dates and times on our newsletter at http://quiltngo.com/news.htm   

The aprons will be coming from the book "More Retro Aprons".  

 

   



It's Snowing

As I sit here with my cup of coffee and good book, I am watching the snow fall. Yes, it is snowing in the lower part of "lower pennisula" Michigan. It is a good time to get out old projects that might not have been finished last year at this time. Like snow landscape wall hangings or maybe a Christmas project that didn't get finished in time for Christmas. Come on now, many of you quilters out there know what I'm talking about. I have forgotten too many projects in bags because I love all the new patterns coming into the shop "this" season. I have gotten onto a yo-yo bandwagon and am working on a yo-yo Snowman for the store. The pattern is from Indygo Junction called Yuletide Yo-Yo. I used the Clover Yo-Yo makers and the Clover Circle Cutter

   

 

The Yo-Yo maker turns the edge under and makes the yo-yo's the perfect size every time. I made 50 of them in no time at all. Melissa (one of my very enthusiastic employees and friend) has uploaded the notions onto our web site  www.quiltngo.com I will post a picture when the snowman is done.

We are excited to present some new kits available this week.

First is Thea's Puzzle, made out of the brand new Amy Butler fabric.  This is a  bright,cozy quilt, that measures  64 x 64. It would make the best christmas present, what are you waiting for?

 

 

Here is a quilt made from the pattern "Sassafras" by Thimble Blossoms. The quilt uses 1 jelly roll, and 3 fat quarters.  You can purchase the kit how we made it or chose a different jelly roll.

 

Also, look what fell off the fabric delivery truck this week!!!! New Dreaming in Color Batiks from Moda!!

 

 

We had the ladies from Nancy's beginning quilting class in on Tuesday.  Nancy's class is full of tips and tricks, and the ladies seemed to be having a great time!

 

Stay tuned for pictures of our upcoming November retreat.
New Classes posting soon.

Fall Harvest Shop Hop 2008

clock September 27, 2008 08:27 by author Ruth
We had an awesome time at Quilt N Go this fall harvest shop hop. We saw many new faces and of course many familar friends too.
We couldn't have asked for better weather! It was sunny and warm through the whole week.
We decided to take advantage of the last of the warm fall days and put some sale items and quilt kits outside this year.
Here is our favorite shop owners' husband Steve doing his annual apple cutting duty!
 
We had hot coffee, cold bottled water, cookies, apples, and popcorn this year. Here is Ruth (shop owner) popping up some hot buttery popcorn!
Thank you to all the shop hoppers and regular customers who stopped by and brightened our day!
