Sale at My Very Own Quilt Shop!

Our St. Patrick's Day sale is still going strong!  See details below.

SALE ALERT!!! I've got some Irish in me, but more importantly, I need to make room for all of the new inventory I have coming, so we are having a sale this weekend for St. Patrick's Day. Starting now, you will receive 20% off your entire order, excluding shipping and sales tax, if applicable. 
The discount will show up automatically in your shopping cart, but not on the individual product prices. No coupon code necessary!

The sale will run through midnight on Sunday, March 17th. Click below to start shopping!
And don't forget to "Like" us on Facebook if you want to see new product announcements and get notification of sales.
As a side note, there has been no sewing going on here :-(.  Too much tax work to do, but in a month that will be over (thankfully) and then I have big plans!!!!  LOL

Perkiomen Daydreams

Ever since I saw this quilt on Bonnie Hunter's website I knew that I had to make it someday.   Well that someday has finally arrived.  I got the book with the pattern in it for Christmas this year and realized it would be a perfect quilt for using the cutoffs I get from prepping the bolts for sale in my store.  So out with the original plan for the cutoffs and in with the new. 

This quilt is HUGE and has 10,000 one inch squares.  Even using strip piecing methods, that is ALOT of cutting, sewing, and then more cutting.  I set a goal to cut and piece 50 strip sets in February to ultimately yield 50 blocks (I think) of the 400 total that I need.  I managed to get 3 sets completely pieced and the fourth cut, but now sewn.  Not bad considering the time of year it is.

Here are some pics of my progress in February:

Wow, thank you so much to all of you who "Liked" us on Facebook and participated in the giveaway!  Thanks to bloggers and customers we got 29 new Likes on Facebook :-). 

My stepsons are here this morning with us, so I enlisted the help of Kelby, the youngest, in picking the winner of the giveaway.  I asked him to pick a number between one and 29 and after thinking long and hard, he picked lucky number 13, which was Ame, who is a customer of My Very Own Quilt Shop.  So congratulations to Ame!  And thank you again to everyone that participated!
