New Arrivals from Twin Cities Quilting

Hi Everyone,

There is still room in a couple of October classes.  Sedona is a Mini Block of the Month starting October 18th.  Bring your machine to this BOM and sew a new block in every class.  It runs for six months (we skip December).  We have inexperienced and seasoned quilters taking this class.  No matter who you are, it provides a framework and organization to get the quilt done without the fear of having another unfinished project.

Bag Basics is on Saturday, October 27.  Find a pattern you find challenging for this workshop oriented class.  See class details and ...

Warning: You Might go Batty, too, with this Delightful Halloween Quilt from Quilter Chic

Inside: October’s featured designer brings us a wonderful Halloween Quilt.

My mom had a great Halloween tradition. She would make cookies for us to decorate. She would gather all kinds of candy; M&M’s, candy corn, licorice, red hots, and some nuts to make faces on the bright, orange icing. What do you think happened when we went to decorate the cookies?

This month’s featured designer is Elisabeth DeMoo of Brown Bird Designs. She is featuring a beautiful (or spooky) quilt called Gone Batty. I love this design, and the wonderful fabric she has used! The orange ...

New Arrivals & Pattern Correction from Twin Cities Quilting

Hi Everyone,

Sometimes I have mental blocks.  We all do.  But this one of mine was really bad.  I made another mistake on the Animal Pillow pattern.  Even though I corrected one mistake in a previous email I still had a customer find another in the cutting instructions (read the next paragraph if you wish to know more about how I made the mistake).  The correction is that you need to cut twice as many rectangles out of the grunge dot fabrics:  Four at 4½" x 7½" and four at 4½" x 11½".  This is possible with the fat quarter ...

How to Make a Halloween Wall Hanging your Family and Friends will Love from Quilter Chic

Inside: Adorable Halloween wall hanging from September’s featured designer.

Ah, Halloween. All the memories! I was so easily frightened as a child. It didn’t take much. I’m old enough that we went trick-or-treating without adults, well into the dark night, too! I remember going with my friend Sherie, who lived straight through the block from me.

After trick-or-treating she was kind enough to walk halfway around the block with me, then we’d both sprint for home as fast as possible! What was I afraid of? Monsters, or scary people.

You won’t be afraid of the ...

Stop Wondering How to Paper Piece with August’s Guest Designer from Quilter Chic

Inside: Diamond-studded mini quilt by August’s guest designer

Have you ever been on a cruise? We’ve been a few times now, and I love almost everything about it, except… the diamond salespeople. They lure you in to their presentation claiming “shopping advice” and it’s all about going to their sponsored shops in port and buying diamonds. Snore, snore. And they were taking my vacation time! I only fell for it the first cruise, though!

I’d rather have the diamonds from August’s featured designer, Sherry Shish! She is offering us a darling mini quilt called Diamonds ...
