Our biggest sellers last weekend was just about anything that my mom made as a shop sample!

Effie The Elephant was a big hit. A cute little pincushion pattern by Heather Bailey. The pattern comes with the template for the small one but we thought it would be fun to enlarge it 175% and make a big softie for baby too!

Happy Camper embroidered pillow from This & That.

Of course her hand crocheted flowers. These make great embellishments for just about anything.

And the Good Natured Equilateral Baby Quilt kit.

We sold out of all of these except the kits. There’s a few of those still in stock (here) and I’ve reorded all the patterns. I’m hoping to get those in by Friday’s show. I did ‘reorder’ the crochet flowers but you just can’t rush handmade!

A big thanks to everyone who came to see us at the Pride Of The Prairie quilt show last weekend. It was a huge success and we really love vending there. We were so busy I didn’t even get a chance to see the quilts but I heard they were beautiful…bummer.

I worked my mad skills on the booth. I seem to enjoy that process a lot. I love seeing the transformation from a backdrop and a table to something that draws people over..smiling and shopping of course. I wish I had taken a before pic.

Did a little promoting of the Crystal lake Modern Quilt Guild, which by the way is growing tremendously. We now have 61 members and its only our 1st year! I’d say that is amazing, right!

Took this great shot of the Sassy Strollers Quilt. So sweet…

And Paige managed to work her mad skills creating some more SewMod Stacks while we were there. You can find these and many more in the Etsy shop. I added about 12 new sets the other day. The SewMod Stacks pull from different fabric companies & different lines to mix & match. We like to show quilters that you can jump out of that pre-made bundle and mix it up. It’s ok to do your own thing! The SewMod Stacks tend to sell pretty fast. We offer them at a 15% discount.

It was really hard trying to keep Paige away from sneaking off with them for herself!
