Hi all!

I have to say, I got a lot of sewing done this week!  Consequently, I haven't left a lot of time for my weekly newsletter, which I'm trying very hard not to turn into a bi-weekly or monthly.  LOL  (Both the kitchen & my sewing room are a real mess too!)

 A quick reminder, tomorrow is SECOND SATURDAY!  We'll start at 9 a.m. sharp, and we'll have show & share (come see all the great new models & fabrics!)  It is FREE and no registration necessary. 

Of course, if you've been coming for a while, you'll want to bring your finished block to get your next kit for FREE!

We're on block 8 of 9 different block patterns found in KALEIDOSCOPE SYMPHONY.  You can see the book here.

We still have a couple of complete kits featuring LUNA NOTTE fabric by Moda's 3 Sisters.  Notice above how the center of the blocks are made with simple 4-patch kaleidoscopes.

You can see even more Kaleidoscope Symphony kits here:



There are a limited number left in the Ladies' cut.  So, be sure to stop in soon, or order on the web.


Mary models this year's Navy Blue, 100% Cotton T-Shirt.

We're offering the Ladies' cut with a nicer neckline and shorter sleeves & shorter overall length. 

Printed front & back.  You may order here:

Exclusive to Central Kansas Quilt Shop Hop stores, with limited availability. 

Visit for details on the October 2011 Hop.


We are looking forward to FALL CLASSES starting soon.  

THE ROMANCE CONTINUES sampler quilt will be taught as a BLOCK-A-MONTH.  

Fabric can be purchased all at once, or in increments.  Select this blue & yellow version or choose your own.

Mary's 12 month class will start Sept. 15th.  at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. & 6:30 p.m. $48 includes pattern, fabric extra.

The pattern is written for PERFECT PATCHWORK ROTARY CUTTING TEMPLATES, which everyone loves!  You will not be forced to use these, as the pattern includes optional paper templates and measurements, but once you give them a try, we're sure you'll be convinced!

You can also purchase or order the complete KIT for this quilt without the class. 

See all these beautiful BLUE & YELLOW WILD ROSE II fabrics designed by Marti Michell for Maywood Fabrics here:

 Mary will also be continuing MARTI & ME CLUB.  This club features Marti Michell's patterns, templates & ingenious techniques!

Meets Third Thursdays and starts September 15th, 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. & 7 p.m.

Class will start September 22nd, 2011 through May 2012.  

Classes will meet at 10 a.m. & 6:30 p.m.  $32, patterns & fabrics extra.

Since this class always meets on the 4th Thursdays, there will be no classes in November or December.

KITS will be available BY MAIL too!  Details coming soon!

Ruth's quilt top is now in the store, so you can stop in and see what a great collection of fabrics and what a pretty design it really is.  The appliqué can be as SIMPLE as you like, or as detailed as you can do.


Many of the fabric companies provide FREE PATTERNS on their web sites.  If we like the project we CUT KITS before any of the fabrics become unavailable.

There are now more than 78 pages of NEWEST fabrics on the web site.  That is just in the past 30 days!!  More being added as I write this.  Have fun browsing!


Here are a few "quick links" (click on the name to see the fabrics):

 Other recent arrivals include:


BARGAINS & SPECIALS can be seen on the WEB here on more than 50 pages!  


Another load of fabrics left downtown, travelling the 4 miles south to CHARLOTTE'S BARGAIN FABRIC & STITCHERY. 

They all get marked down a minimum of 20% off the original price, and then they get marked down on the web.  So check here often.

These prints & flannels start at $3.97/yard.  Catch them while they're HOT!  

 Visit CHARLOTTE'S in the CHISHOLM TRAIL MALL now for a great selection of BARGAIN FABRICS and inspiration.  

Pre-Cut kits available now!  Rent time on our ACCU-CUTTER!

Speaking of PRE-CUT KITS, Marietta has joined Georgeann in making sure there are plenty of opportunities for you to contribute it you like to the 


Marietta has cut lots of 5-fabric kits from DONATED FABRIC that are just ready to be stitched together.  

We're looking for VOLUNTEER QUILTERS too, as there are now many quilt tops ready to be quilted.  If you or your SMALL GROUP like to quilt or TIE QUILTS, please call the MALL STORE at 316-804-4660 to arrange to get some quilt tops.  

If you'd like to make a monetary donation to go towards BATTING OR QUILTING of these QUILTS FOR FOSTER CHILDREN, please contact me.  We are making real progress but could use a little more help.

Another way to do it would be to place an order on my web site for 3 to 10 yards any BARGAIN FABRIC.  Specify in the notes that you do not want it shipped to you (we'll eliminate the shipping charges before charging your credit card), but you would like to donate it to QUILTS FOR FOSTER CHILDREN, and we'll make sure they have the fabric they need to back these quilts.

Again, we are having a work day this 
SATURDAY, AUGUST 13 at the Mall store starting at about 10:30. 

There are pre-cut kits of donated fabric ready to be stitched, or picked up, taken home and stitched. 

Bring a lunch and we'll sit and sew this year's contributions to the program.  We will have some "quilt as you sew" ideas, and again will be looking for quilting volunteers after we get some tops pieced.  We need to finish these quilts! :)

Thank you Georgeann & Marietta for getting this ball rolling and keeping it rolling!
