30 April 2022 Newsletter: Summertime is for Americana ... and Canadiana?

Wow, it's already May and, while it's still cold here in Iowa, we're moving rapidly into summertime.

Dang, I love the sound of that!

Here are a couple of selections of Americana-themed patterns -- today we're focusing on those patterns that have a Canadian version, too.

Be sure to add buttons and hangers to complement those designs:



What Are You Doing with Our Patterns?

I absolutely love seeing what you all do ... and occasionally you all share your creations.

Here's what Debra Schmitt Cashman quilted with two of our Machine Embroidery patterns.

Here is MM806-ME Dragonfly Garden with some super fabric choices by Debra

(Yeah, you can definitely pick your own colors!)


Here is her completion of P198-ME Bloomin' Butterfly House

LOVE the orange blocking she used:

Sneak Peek -- Machine Embroidery Style

Finally, we're introducing some Gnomes into the world of ME

We're starting with P288 Spring Bee Gnome, P290 Lazy Daisy Gnome, and P292 Patriotic Gnome


We'll be combining these patterns up in some clever new ways to add value and options ... we may even add wall hanging versions of these table runners!

Stay tuned!

Thanks and keep on quilting!
