  MORE CHRISTMAS IN SEPTEMBER!

Right Window Left Window      We have a new right-hand window, continuing our Christmas in September theme. Meanwhile, the left-hand window displays have not been changed.
     Twister Frosty, designed by Becky Cogan for Andover Fabrics, and at the far left in our left-hand photo, greets you on your right as you enter the Shop. Our kits for this happy quilt include the (necessary) Primitive Gatherings Primitive Pinwheels instructions and Twister Template Ruler. If you would like to make a smaller version of this wall hanging, or perhaps even sew a full-size Twister Snowman, you will find the instructions in your Twister Frosty pattern. To the right of Twister Frosty is Snow Man, a panel from the Wilmington Snow Day collection. Further to the right we show one quarter of the Poinsettia Tree Skirt print from the Winter Sanctuary Collection designed by Color Principle for Henry Glass. The instructions for making this 56"-diameter Christmas tree skit are printed on the fabric. Rudolph, 50 Years and Still Glowing, designed by Cyndi Hershey, is draped in the far corner of our right-hand window. The Quilting Treasurers fabric (in your kit) has 15 small panels featuring Rudolph and scenes from his story; you cut these apart and frame each one with the companion Quilting Treasurers fabrics.
    Three of Nancy Halvorsen's projects, published in her book Christmas Pure & Simple, are featured in our left-hand window, shown at the right above: Noel Quilt, Christmas Pure & Simple Quilt, and one of her Nativity Christmas Stockings. We have kits, including her book, for Noel and for Christmas Pure & Simple. All told, there are 11 projects in Nancy's book. To the left of Christmas Pure & Simple is Triangle Frenzy. This pattern, created by Bunnie Cleland, instructs you to cut 60(degree) equilateral triangles from strips, rearrange them, and sew them into striking runner designs. We invite you to join Phyllis as she teaches this class. On the far wall is Jingle Pops, which looks for all the world like a very big Christmas present with a 3-D bow; we had to fold Jingle Pops to display it on the wall: Quilted, it is 65" x 79." As suggested by its name, it uses a roll of 2" strips in its construction. We have kits for Jingle Pops.
    Finally, be sure to look on the floors of both windows. We have two Aunt Philly's Toothbrush rugs, knotted with red & green fabrics, one on the floor of our left-hand window. And we have packs of Christmas fabric strips, prepared especially for this Christmas display.
