The quilt shop meets YouTube

The moda bake shop is full of ideas and projects to use the moda pre-cuts,

however YouTube is full of videos on quilting.

Sarah has a video on everything… quilting.

It also happens to be Jelly Roll week in her store.

We Remember…

Hello to all,
We wanted to show you something red, white and blue that is very special to us. In 2001 we made over 60 flag baby quilts. These quilts were sent to People magazine when we heard they were doing a story about all the children that were born without a father due to 9 11 attacks.
Each quilt had a Texas Bluebonnet backing and a handmade, calligraphy quilt label that read,
“You and your family have touched our lives. May this quilt wrap you with the warmth from our hearts.”
If you are interested in sewing for a worthwhile cause, check out Quilts of Valor Foundation. http://www.qovf.org/

Sew something red, white and blue today and snuggle with those you love.

WE REMEMBER…
