Celebrations and Customer Show and Tell!

A BIG Thank You to all of those who joined us the 17th-19th for our Anniversary celebration! We had some excellent instruction from Ruth Jensen of Thimble Arts, and she was kind enough to bring a free pattern for all of those that attended. How NICE!! 

Here are a few close up looks at some of her work, 
many are still hanging around the shop so come and see them in person if you can!

This Nativity is one of my personal favorites!

Many people got prizes and birthday gifts and (drum roll  please).....

The winner of our 1st Anniversary Quilt was Kaylee Withers. 
Congratulations Kaylee

We hope having a beautiful quilt from My Sister's Quilts
 will inspire you to make many more of your own :)

We also picked a name from all the punch cards redeemed during our first year
 to receive yet another quilt. 

Congratulations Sandy Doxey for being our lucky winner!

We are so glad so many of you are taking advantage of the punch cards!

Also, NEW at My Sister's Quilts, the Customer Show and Tell Wall!! 
Every few weeks we will be displaying a quilt made by one of our amazing customers, right behind the cutting table for all to admire. In case you missed them, here are some pictures of the last two that have been displayed: 

First up was this adorable quilt that was a group effort. The applique was completed by Shirley Putnam, piecing by Shauna Bunker, and quilting by Sherrie Jackman.
 Isn't it beautiful!!

Beautifully done ladies!! We were so happy to have your work displayed in our store!!

Next up was this beauty by Vicky Robertson.
 Yes those are EMBROIDERED blocks!

Each of the blocks took Vicky about 30 hours to complete. 
I must admit there was some jaw dropping action when I saw this quilt for the first time. INCREDIBLE is all there is to say. 

So the next time that you finish a work of art that you are particularly proud of, bring it in to show Carolyn and Linda! 
They would love to see it and you might find your work up for all to see and admire. 

We love our customers at My Sisters Quilts!!
 Thank you again for a wonderful year, and hopefully many more to come!!!

One year ago this week, My Sisters Quilts opened its doors.
It has been an amazing year, full of new friends, beautiful quilts, knowledgeable teachers, and of course our great customers!! 

We would like to say THANKS to all of you that have made this last year such a success, and what better way to celebrate than a SALE and a trunk show!

This weekend Thursday through Saturday the 17th-19th of November you are sure to find a reason to celebrate with the great specials we are having:

The first 100 customers will receive a pincushion with their purchase
The ENTIRE store will be 20% off, including clearance fabrics!
  We will have a drawing to win a beautiful finished QUILT
And if you find a stamp on your receipt or a sticker on an item you are purchasing you will get an anniversary gift!

And if those were not enough reasons to come celebrate with us, on Saturday the 19th at 2:30 we will welcome our very special guest Ruth Jensen of Thimble Art who will be doing a demo on her dimensional foundation piecing that you won't want to miss!

Many of her quilts will be on display at the store, and believe me when I tell you, they are STUNNING.
We will have her patterns available to purchase as well as some of her books. 
Come and see some of these beautiful quilts in person!

We hope to see you all this weekend to celebrate our anniversary!!!

New Fabric Collections!

Have you been in to the store lately?? 
If you have I would bet that you noticed two new fabric collections that we got in a week or two ago, 
Kari Ramsay's Daisy Dance and Jill Finley's Sorbet Garden!! Check out how beautiful they are!

These beauties are Jill Finley's Sorbet Garden, by Henry Glass Fabrics

 Follow this link to her blog about the new line and an adorable pattern called "Crossroads" featuring these beautiful fabrics. There is a free downloadable pattern here from Henry Glass.

And these lovelies are  Kari Ramsay's Daisy Dance

 You can download this free pattern for Daisy Dance here from Henry Glass Fabrics (and there is also a beautiful Blue/Purple option), as well as take a closer look at each of the fabrics in the collection.

This gorgeous quilt "Twisted Star" is also made from Daisy Dance fabrics. 
The pattern is of course from Fresh Cut Quilts and is available at My Sisters Quilts, hanging up right next to the collection.

 Isn't is so CUTE!!

 "Wallflowers" is another gorgeous pattern featuring the fantastic Daisy Dance fabrics.

So if you haven't already added some of these two lines to your stash or planned a project with them, you should hurry into the shop and make sure that you get them before they are gone!!

As always Happy Stitching!
