 Let's explore all the BLACK CAT FABRICS & PATTERNS in honor of Lily's new kitty, Meiko, (who decided apartment living wasn't his thing, is staying with us and is Fluffy's new best friend!).   

Here they are helping me with the NEW BUCK-A-BLOCK quilt. 

They are both checking out my seams, simultaneously "thinking" about FLUFFY's tail, which is moving quickly!  LOL  

 MEIKO is about 12 weeks old, with really long legs & tail.  They rough & tumble all the time.  I wonder how long 'til he's bigger than the 8 year old furry female who actually seems to enjoy wrestling!  Hahaha

Alexander Henry has a great NORA NEKO CAT print, black on cream.  I'm combining it with a HOUNDSTOOTH for a pillow.


LaVerna just finished this fun 
GONE HAUNTING wall or table quilt featuring little BLACK CATS.


Coming to the web too - 
see all the fabrics and GONE HAUNTING kit listed here soon:



If you love cats as I do, you will delight in Darcy Ashton's books, CLAIRE'S CATS Volumes 1 & 2.

Darcy's other titles are just as charming.  Be sure to look at DOGS, BUNNIES, and HORSES too.



And, as I was organizing our KITS, we have just a FEW of this amazing BATIK QUILT KIT left for TAUPE LAP KITTIES.  

We've bundled a great assortment of batiks, the pattern, and the discontinued CAT BATIK.  Check it out here:

 The pattern & fabric was originally designed by Toni, who is also one of the dynamic duo of Wing & A Prayer Designs.  

Wing and a Prayer's newest collection of fabrics & patterns is called BEAUTIFUL JOURNEY, and is also available now:



If you are a female, you are at least one of these; Daughter, Sister, Mother, Grandmother. :)

So for yourself, or maybe someone else on the list, why not make one or more of these charming quilts!



The pattern also includes instructions for pillows & a small wall quilt.  Or maybe it is the perfect size to use as a LAP QUILT.


This small group of fabric includes a PANEL, TOSSED WORDS AND A TONAL PRINT, all coordinating with their WILDFLOWER RHAPSODY fabric collection.  

See them all here:

Robert Kaufman - How the Grinch Stole Xmas by Dr. Seuss Enterprises - Grinch & Who PANEL on WhiteGRINCH. :)

 We cut FAT QUARTERS of almost everything in the store.  The prices vary, depending on the price per yard.  

We've got the latest KANSAS TROUBLES collection, in CHARM PACKS, FAT QUARTERS, and by the YARD.  Check it out here:

I've found a little time each night to read and just finished Jane Smiley's historical novel, set in 1850 Bloody Kansas.  The struggle to end slavery makes our current issues look pretty minor. 

 Our heroine, Lidie Newton, spends much of the story wearing a dress of green serge.  What is this I ask?  According to Wikopedia, it is like denim, and in 1850, is most likely to have been wool.  

OK Lady Kansans, step outside today and just imagine!! (Oh, there would be some undergarments too. - wait, I think my husband left for the office today wearing something of this sort, including a silk tie at the neck to hold in the heat!  Poor guy! LOL)

Well, we are thankful for, and in awe of, those early settlers who persevered all that Kansas Territory had to throw at them to help make it a State. 

Help us CELEBRATE KANSAS and our sesquicentennial of statehood - 1861 - 2011!  

Plan to join us for our 3-day QUILT SHOP HOP, 
Sept. 30, Oct. 1 & 2.

 We now have a sample of the CENTRAL KANSAS QUILT SHOP HOP 2011 FABRIC!

Check out this EXCLUSIVE fabric designed by Jason Yenter of In The Beginning Fabric.  We had a lot of fun introducing Jason to Kansas!  

We are taking pre-paid PRE-ORDERS, with the fabric being available for pick-up or shipping Sept. 30th, at the start of the Shop Hop.
