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!!!

Busy Week at the Shop

We really had a busy week! Deb and I got back from Spring Market in Pittsburg, PA. We brought back some new fabric lines, new rulers, new techniques,  new patterns and books. The gals in the shop will be getting together to "play" with some new items and then we will be scheduling a "Happy Demo Hour" (after work and maybe some treats!) to show you some of what's new. While the cat (Ruth) was gone, the mice (Jodie and Penny) were busy re-arranging the shop! You need to come in and see what is new and see if you can find what is not as new,  but in a new location!! Thimbleberries Club met on Thursday. 

There was lots to show and tell.More...

Project Comfort

When our customer, Holly Ervin, came to us and presented a community project  providing quilts for the ambulance service, I jumped at the chance. The staff and customers at QNG have been very busy making toddler quilts for LifeCare ambulance service. Our goal was 20 toddler quilts with a pocket for a stuffed animal.


QNG provided the fabric and batting to any customer that would like to take part in the project. We have the greatest customers around! They came up with 30 quilts! The quilts will be given to any toddler that is transported by LifeCare.

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

clock November 9, 2008 04:35 by author Ruth

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!
