Woodworking and Quilts

Woodworking and quilting are a match made in heaven. And it is no surprise that many quilters are married to woodworkers. Who better to appreciate the detail and artistry of the craft? Troy Murrah is an expert carpenter – and the son of the late Judy Murrah, a renowned quilt artist who passed away in 2017. He wrote this book to honor her.

3 Yard Quilts by Fabric Café

The concept behind this series is brilliant! Each book contains eight different patterns written for 3 sizes – Lap, Twin, and Queen/King. Three 1-yard cuts make a lap quilt kit. A twin uses 2 lap kits, and a queen/king uses 4 lap kits. Kitting has never been easier than that. Donna even has a video for you!

A Gandiegow Christmas

For those of you who are fans of Patience Griffin and read her series on Scotland, this pattern is sure to make you smile. It is featured in It Happened in Scotland, the sixth novel in the series.

Gandiegow Christmas Tree Quilt Pattern

The quilt measures 53″ x 86″ so it is the perfect size for a twin bed. You can add borders if necessary! Don’t you love the addition of orange and purple in the branches? But if you are more traditional – like me – it is cute in shades of green as well. The plaids and checks give it texture.

Bundle the pattern with the book and you have a winner! What quilter doesn’t like to read as well. And the books don’t HAVE to be read in order!

It Happened In Scotland A Novel

Add a fat quarter bundle of greens to add that awe factor to the gift! Visit our website to see all of the books and patterns by Patience Griffin. Who knows – it may inspire you to stare a book club next year. It could be the perfect zoom class!

Jennifer Chiaverini Sampler

For those of you who are Jennifer Chiaverini fans, Circle of Quilters has to be one of your favorite books. In the ninth book in this series, a woman discovers a sampler quilt and now you can duplicate that quilt!

Harriet's Journey from Elm Creek Quilts

Harriet’s Journey includes 100 block patterns in a 6 inch size. Follow the step-by-step instructions to cut and piece blocks, or simply use the included foundation piecing patterns – the choice is yours. Mingle vintage favorites with never-before-seen designs, or combine these blocks with favorites from her previous two sampler books:

Sylvia's Bridal Sampler From Elm Creek Quilts - Softcover

Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler includes 140 traditional six inch blocks.

Loyal Union Sampler From Elm Creek Quilts - Softcover

The Loyal Union Sampler includes 121 six inch blocks. There are only a few of this title left, so when they are gone, they are gone.

The newest addition is due to arrive on Christmas Day. Wouldn’t this be a great pre-sell item or a perfect gift certificate purchase?
