Quilt N Go Anniversary

WOW. Another year has past. It’s hard to believe we have been open 9 years now. We had a great turnout. We had games and prizes. Cake and hot dogs. There was a drawing for a quilt and a wall hanging. Of course our littlest helper was with us again this year directing the games. Her brother cooked the hot dogs.

HO! HO! HO! Merry Christmas! Oh, that’s right, it was Christmas in July at Quilt N Go!

Santa was busy greeting everyone with a secret discount coupon, while his elf was busy handing out treats.

Everything was a hustle and a bustle with sooooo many shoppers checking out our new products, new projects, and specials on Christmas fabrics and batting.

We just got in the new Pumpkin & Spice fabric by Red Rooster. Terri from Whimsicals is the designer and we fell in love with all the projects in her new book 

Pumpkin Spice Book PumpkinSpiceProjects

We have the complete line of fabric including the panel

Melissa and Deb are “duking it out” as to who will get to make the most projects out of the book. You have to see the fabric in person to really appreciate it.



Newest Addition at QNG

clock July 2, 2009 10:00 by author Ruth

Joyce Henson started working with us the first of June. She has been quilting for over 30 years. She started by hand quilting with her grandmother. Grandma’s and Grandpa’s take note: we need to develop the new generation of quilters to carry our craft forward. Joyce will be working a few days a week, teaching classes and making samples. Her specialty, besides growing a garden, is piecing and hand quilting. Maybe we can get her to teach a hand quilting class!!!! She is also our new paper piecing expert! (I sense another class coming!!!) After a career in banking, she is FINALLY doing what she has always dreamed of doing: working with customers, making beautiful quilts to display and teaching. She says you can  make her feel welcome by buying her Snap Sack first!!!!



Six halves make a whole!!

clock June 30, 2009 06:40 by author Ruth

Yes, we can count and yes, in this case, six half yards of fabric will get you all or most of a whole quilt top. We packaged together 6 coordinating fabrics to make one of several projects out of our “SIX HALVES MAKE A WHOLE books by The Quilt Branch. Each of our 3 books feature 6 different projects. It isn’t too early to start on those Christmas Gifts-so come in and check ‘em out. Our new Christmas fabric line, Winter Welcome by Wilmington Prints,  should be here real soon.



The Girls had another “play date”!

On Tuesday, June 22 we all got together again to play with rulers. We are all experts using the “ X “ block, Square in a Square, Flying Geese (Eleanor Burns method), Flying Geese (Lazy Girls way), Half Square Triangles (Eleanor Burns) and Prairie Point Template. So, if you need some instruction on these rulers or are just curious, come on in!!!
