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!

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!

Simply Color!

We received our order of Moda's new line by V&Co called 
Simply Color and it is simply lovely!
 These bolts are gradients so they are dark at the selvages and then fade deliciously to pastel by the fold!   Super for many projects- think of all the different shades you could get out of one cut! 
They also come in a junior jellyroll which we carry and the full line's Jellyroll. We also nabbed some charm packs!
These are the prints and zig zags we received. Chevrons (zig zags) are all the rage right now in the fabric world.
 And they came out with a coordinating thread pack with Aurifil thread!
Check out this beautiful free pattern on Moda Bake shop's website that uses two of the full jellyrolls for this line HERE
AND the free pattern for the Charm pack  HERE 
Lots more new things tomorrow! Stay tuned.

 And comes with instructions in the book to make this quilt! 
What a great gift for a child!
 We also got a shipment of batiks this week:

  We are carrying Glide thread in many colors now as well!
Many colors!

Reptile Rumpus!

These super soft flannels are from Northcott fabrics. 
They are perfect for quilts, receiving blankets, burp clothes, pajamas and pillow cases for the little people in our lives.

The International Quilt show is in full swing downtown, we no longer have tickets at the shop but you can certainly buy them downtown at the George R. Brown. 
Be sure to bring your comfy shoes if you go! 
Today is also the last day of Early Voting in Texas, one of the places to cast your vote (if you live in Harris County) is near our shop in Tomball at the Tomball Public Works Building 501B James Street in Tomball. Many folks have been stopping in after voting to say hello at the shop. 
Thanks for making us a part of you day.
