Extraordinary Colors Quilt


Nancy whipped this quilt up from the children's book "Extraordinary Colors!" The quilt pattern appears at the back of the book and the rest of the book is a cute story about colors for a child.
Great gift idea!

Here are some detail shots of the cute blocks:




Since it came out really cute and the pattern tested well we have these kitted up so you can make a quilt for a child and give a book for them to read to go along with it! Love being able to encourage reading and quilting at the same time!
The quilt has big chunky shapes and sewed up quickly!

Santa's Visit to Quilters Crossing

So Santa and Mrs. Claus were on the porch yesterday afternoon. Many children came to visit and tell Santa what they wanted for Christmas. Some of these children were happy and some were a tad more reluctant to meet the big guy!
 We also had some unusual children visit at the end of the day:
 
 Here are Gabby and Louie. Gabby (above) was decked out in a lovely red and white number complete with a tutu and foot cuffs. She wasn't really thrilled to wear her fascinator but here is a quick pic of her with it on:
Louie was fine with his Santa jacket but every time his little hood and beard were put on as seen below he would sit down and try to pull it off. 
 They did manage to get everything together though and get a shot with Santa.
Overall it was a great day in Tomball with lovely weather and a nice turn out of people. What a great way to start the holidays!

Happy Friday!

In my blog surfing this morning I found a very cute scrappy tutorial for little houses here.  I found that while looking here on the Sew Mama Sew blog where they have a whole bunch of tutorials compiled from various blogs with a holiday theme. 
Check it out they do a great job!
***********************************************
And now on to our regularly scheduled program:
New in the shop:
French General from Moda:
 in reds and neutrals
 And in response to the huge number of Judy Niemeyer's Bali Wedding Star pattern fans Creative Grids has come out with a template set to make this pattern even better! 
And local business woman Dawn Morey of In-Glaze Imagery has produced these adorable ceramic stocking ornaments with quilt blocks on them!
 
On the back it says,"May your hands always be busy and feet always be warm" with the Quilters Crossing Logo on it! 
She even has a cute display for them:
These have been very popular gifts for fellow quilters.
And she made some holiday buttons too: 

 And some colorful non-holiday themed buttons as well.
 We love to bring you unique products!

Bags

We found these really lovely bag patterns recently and have several samples in the works. Bags are so much fun to make because you can use it and show it off!
 They make great gifts!
 And can be made casual or dressy as needed.
 We also have a new line of interfacings by Sew Lazy that have some really great characteristics. More on these to follow.
 Still plenty of time to have a homemade Christmas!
