Recently a great group of ladies visited the shop and one of them came with a wonderful candle mat pattern that she designed and samples to show. Knowing how I love candle mats and small projects, this is a perfect match for the shop,so this weekend I wanted to test run the pattern and it is great! I got on a roll and made 4 candlemats and cut out several more. The possiblities are endless with this pattern and its reversible!!! Use your favorite decorative stitch for around the circle or if your into embroidery use the center for your design. You can purchase the pattern "Reversible Candle Mat" at QUILTED CROW or contact Cindy at www.icanquilt.com
I am sure that you will enjoy making this candle mat as much as I did!

Happy Quilting,

I know...we are all sick of winter and want it to go away!!! So, I hesitate to mention that WINTERBERRY LANE by Whimsicals has just arrived at the shop!! I was getting ready to close the shop for the day and in comes UPS with the complete collection. Shelly and I ripped open the boxes in excitement and started drooling over the fabric. This collection is a winner!!! The main panel has adorable snowmen, presents stacked high and a sleigh full of poinsettia's. The co-ordinating fabrics are in warm dusty colors creating a stunning pallette. This will be a quick yet wonderful quilt to make for anyone on your holiday list! Shop early for best selection.
