Cindy and Jina teach "Zipper Flowers"

We have been having a lot of fun experimenting with new things in our shop.  We've got lots of fun zippers and this is just one great video on how to make some CUTE flowers!  You can find zippers on the website and if you stop in to our shop!  
Thanks to Cindy and Jina of Riley Blake Designs for another great teaching video.

Book Lover's Lunch Box

When I was in Wisconsin, my daughter and I stopped in at a local quilt shop (something I love to do when I am traveling) just to look around.  We found this pattern for the "Book Lover's Lunch Box."  Many of you have been asking if I had something like this.  The pattern is designed by Carol Dockery from Quilter by Night Designs.  It's a project that takes six fat quarters.  Because my daughter wanted to make it, she choose the line "Peaceful Planet" by Studio E Designs.  

Just look at how cute this turned out! It stands about 10 inches tall and it 8 1/2 inches wide.  It's great if you wanted to slide a water bottle into it as well.  It also has directions to make reusable/washable snack size bags.

This is another view, showing how easy a book slides into the back pocket.  
Let me know what you think about this! I love to hear your feedback.
