SIENA from P&B Textiles

Siena is a gorgeous fantasy floral collection from P&B Textiles featuring a main print with a slightly Jacobean flavor. The large flowers are striking on both dark and light backgrounds, creating a very different look with each, and with the red background as well. The packed medium-sized secondary print is loaded with additional color and texture, and the tonal gives the eye a resting place with a subtle but interesting print.

Floral Balance Quilt Kit

This gorgeous quilt kit designed by Diane Nagle is available in limited quantity.

Finished size: 50"square

Kit includes all fabric to complete top & binding.

She's a Little Bit Country ...

This lovely woman that graced our television sets so many years ago, has taken the quilting world by storm. Now, granted, as cute as she was, we know our eyes were all on Donny :)

Over the past decade we've seen Marie in a whole new way, that of a crafter, designing a collection of stunning dolls. But that's not where it ends. A few years ago she began designing fabric for Quilting Treasures.
This October we had the privilege of meeting with Marie at Quilt Market, where she introduced her new fabrics along with her promotion of her new sewing machine with Janome and her new collection of Advantus quilters storage accessories . What a delight it was to spend a few minutes talking with her. And, yes, she really does quilt! The picture below is a quilt she made just a few days before market.

Marie's newest collection, Blanc et Noir "Fashion," has just arrived at The Quilt Shoppe. Featured in the quilt above made by Marie, this new collection is a sophisticated group with a downtown flair. Geometrics combined with florals in black, white and a pop of fuchsia, this 12-piece collection is perfect for contemporary quilts, totes and accessories. To add a little variety, pair it up with fabrics from the original Blanc et Noir collection.

TQS Exclusive! We've put together charm packs and bundles of this newest collection. Each charm pack includes 36 -5" squares (3 of each pattern in the collection.) Bundles include 12 fat quarters.

The quilt shown below is a free pattern available from Quilting Treasures (it's also the quilt behind Marie in the picture of the two of us.) Click on the quilt below to download the free pattern.

The Marie Osmond Quilt Challenge starts now!! Make a quilt using Marie's fabrics and get a chance to win a prize package including a Janome sewing machine, Quilting Treasures fabrics, Advantus storage accessories and much more!

Aged Elegance
3 Beautiful Quilts for 3 Beautiful Ladies! This picture was submitted by our good friend Chris C. from Australia. Here she is pictured with her quilting friends. From left to right, Dawn, Chris and Rhonda. They all worked on making these gorgeous Aged Elegance quilt tops together. Chris says, "The photo was taken by Janet the fourth member of our Friday quilting group. We have great fun each Friday taking turns to meet in each other's home. A lot of the time is taken up in laughing, talking and EATING. We have been known to get a little quilting in too!! There is nothing like the friendship of Quilters no matter where we are in the world." Thank you, Chris!

This wallhanging was created by Adrienne B. from New York. She made this as a birthday gift using the Moda Butterfly Fling layer cake. Thank you for sharing this with us, Adrienne!
