It is only a few days till the first day of Fall but we have been having some very Summer like weather and hasn’t it been nice!  We will be at a quilt show this weekend in Sault Ste. Maire, MI sponsored by the Keeping the Piece Quilters Guild.  It is being held at Sault Area Middle School on Saturday Sept. 19 and Sun. Sept. 20.  We will be one of the vendors at the quilt show so stop by our booth and say “HI.”

A note for those of you on our mailing list that receive our All Threads E-Newsletter – we haven’t forgot about you!  We have a new computer.  This is a great treat and very exciting except that the old programs won’t work with the new computer so there is reformatting and redoing going on.  Once all is said and done it will be so much better I promise.  Now on to our regularly scheduled blog.

PICT0064 A great gift idea here – 4 sided placemats!  Make a whole set or make one and add a candle for a wonderful table center piece.  4 fat quarters will make one placemat.  See the four different fabrics?  There is moose, lighthouses, flowers and blueberries.    We have this in the shop and it will also be at the Flying Geese Quilt Show this weekend.  This is a must see!

PICT0061 This wall hanging or table runner can be made with a wide variety of fabrics.  Our model is make with batiks with one being used for the larger focus squares.  Great for a larger print or photos.

PICT0066 For the crocheters or the wanna be crocheters we have this crocheted rug pattern.  It is written for beginners with no crochet experience and offers round, oval and rectangle rugs, plus hints and tips for making your fabric crochet rug. My rug is coming out quite thick and soft and would be great for standing in front of the sink doing dishes.  Great way to use up leftover strips of fabrics.

Hope to see you at the Quilt Show this weekend.  Till next time happy crafting!

Lisa 🙂
