June 2017 Newsletter

Little Cottage Quilt Shop        June 2017 Newsletter

Here comes summer & we are currently on “vacation”.  (I use that term loosely, very loosely.) No rest for me though, I’m swamped & so far behind I can’t see the light of day. We are working at our little ranch as well as at the Cottage trying to get caught up on neglected chores. LOL !! Maybe, someday, I might just catch up, in the meantime, I have a newsletter to write. (wink)

There is always lots happening here at the Cottage. It’s a full month with exciting new arrivals, events and fun. Be sure to mark your calendars for these dates so you don’t miss out on your favorites. Our fingers are crossed that the new Edyta Sitar fabric release will arrive this month. Watch LCQS FB page for the announcement.   Here are just a few of the new arrivals this past few weeks. Texas fabrics, sparkly fairies, glow in the dark Halloween fabrics & a new vintage sewing collection to name a few.

  

  

Don’t forget to pick up this months Barn Quilt B.O.M. kit, Block 2, the “Welcome block”. They are all so cute !! I just love this fun quilt. Each month the kit is different fabrics. $9.99 ea

 

June Grab Bag Challenge

You don’t want to miss this month’s Grab Bag Challenge. This month, because we have had so much going on and are so far behind, we thought we would let you come up with the pattern for the project.   SOOOOOOO;

Here’s the scoop; take the 3 yards of darling, Northcott’s “Strawberry Patch” fabric and make up something fabulous. It can be anything, clothing, bags, table linens, a quilted throw, what ever you imagination and creativity comes up with. Then bring it into the shop before the end of the month. The first club member to bring in a finished project with the “Strawberry Patch” fabric, will win a $25 gift card . That pays for your Grab Bag ! (well almost, the state has to take their chunk) Get your creative juices flowing and make up something fun and fabulous. After all, what would summer be without delicious juicy strawberries.  Can’t wait to see what y’all come up with !

I hope y’all had a nice & safe Memorial Day week end. I look forward to hearing about it when we are back at the shop on Monday June 5.

See y’all then,   Donette

What’s New ????

Hi y’all !!

Wow, time flies when you are busy running a business. :{  I have a hard time keeping up with everything that is going on around here.  New fabrics, tools, notions, patterns & books arrive every week.  Too many to list everything here on the website.  Give me a call or send me an email & I will be happy to share more info with you & shoot more pictures for you if necessary.

I hope y’all have signed up for the monthly e-Newsletter, it has info about new ideas, merchandise and events in it.  I do that once a month, unfortunately more current than this poor neglected website.  So look at the side bar to your right on the screen and sign up for the newsletter.

If you are an Edyta Sitar fan, you are going to love her new collection, Blue Sky.  We are now carrying all her patterns and books.  Her new collection, Blue Sky is being released by Andover Fabrics in June.  Our order is in and as soon as they ship I will let you know, so watch FB for the announcement.

Here are a few new fabric collections that are already in the Cottage & available now.

Just arrived !!  Riley Blake has done a great TEXAS fabric with companion cowboy fabrics.  Don’t miss out, this won’t last long.

Row by Row 2017 is just around the corner.  Here are this years official Row by Row companion fabrics by Timeless Treasures, available for purchase now.

Also our Row By Row fabric plates are here and they look great !! they are also available for purchase now.

Double Gauze is all the rage and we have some of Shannon’s lovely soft colors & designs.  Great for baby paraphernalia and adult & kids clothes as well.  It’s machine wash & dry and it come out great.

We added Timless Treasures fabrics to our stock several months ago and have really enjoyed their designer’s beautiful work.  Here is a darling fairy print & coordinating “fairy dust”.

“Redwood Express” by Blank Quilting (another addition to our inventory) is catching the attention of lots of shoppers, especially the men. 

Hoffman Fabrics “Nocturne” is a beautiful life like rendition of the Owl family.  Beautiful companion fabrics too.

“Nature”,  an outdoorsy collection by Timeless Treasures is perfect for that masculine quilt.  It works nicely with several other outdoor collections too.

Tools and wood are more “man cave” type fabrics also by Timeless Treasures

Jumping to the opposite end of the spectrum, we have the Glampers !!!   Loralie Designs’s fun and colorful collection, “Vintage Holiday”.  RV fabrics are always popular !!

Yet another fun RV fabric collection from Maywood Studios, “Roam sweet Home”.

We have beautiful 11″ repeat border fabrics for the 60 degree angle ruler table runner.  They are truly fabulous.

“Tweet Me” is a very cute collection by Michael Miller.

I love Clothworks fabrics.  They are so soft and lovely.  And this new lavender collection is called “Lovely Lavender”.  (LOL)

More soft and romantic florals from Timeless Treasures, so like Spring.

Honey bees are forever popular and these are very sweet.  Three different collections from Henry Glass, Red Rooster Fabrics and Wilmington Prints.  Oh and there’s some Fire Flies in there too.

These soft and soothing colors and  subtle prints of the beach are so nice and comforting.  Clothworks soft and relaxing “Sea Side Cottage” collection is all that.  We also have a few 2.5″ strip rolls of this collection.

I LOVE TEA !!  Anything that has to do with TEA.  I’d like to share with you this soft & romantic, vintage tea collection, “Tea Time” by Clothworks

Altho, these beautiful rayon Batiks from Island Batiks, aren’t usually used for quilting, they are exquisite in clothing.  They drape so wonderfully and are so flattering.

Another wonderful “summer feel” collection is the “Lakeside Retreat”  by Wilmington Prints.  Check out what we did with the panel !!

Halloween is coming faster than you think.  We are getting some fun new Halloween collections.  These 3 bolts, glow in the dark !!!  “Ready, Set, Glow”, another fun fabric from Blank.

And this SPECTACULAR new digital printing process, has produced this stunning witch silhouette, “Super Nova Seasons” from Hoffman.  We also have a Santa silhouette on a blue night sky.

Beautiful sunflowers accented with gold is our latest fall fabric from Hoffman, “Falling For You”.

Another fun fall fabric collection is from Clothworks, “Fall Feast” is so cute with the bird houses.

Not necessarily a fall fabric, the colors in this darling “Roosters” collection by In the Beginning work beautifully with all the fall colors here in the shop. (check out the chicken wire !! )

Another chicken fabric collection is”Elegant Roosters” by Clothworks.

The Holiday fabrics are starting to trickle in.  We keep all our Holiday fabrics out & available all year long.  So keep an eye out for the latest Holiday prints.  Like this nostalgic Christmas scene panel that just arrived, “Winter Snow” by Timeless Treasures.  I love the quilt block on the end of the barn !!

We have a large variety of blenders too.  The “Artisian Spirit” by Northcott collections are highlighted with gold and so very popular.  They just seem to go with anything and add that extra spark.

Close ups:

Our many, many Shannon Cuddle fabrics continue to be a favorite to back your quilts.  Our ever changing stock is irresistible.  Use your imagination, jackets, baby supplies, bathrobes, toys, throws and pillows, it’s endless !!!
