Hi all!

Happy August!

Some of our "June delivery" fabrics have finally arrived!

This one is fun, and so Kansas! We're happy for SUNFLOWERS anytime!

Already attracting a lot of attention in the store, you might want to check out AUTUMN SUN online right away.

Remember, you can place your order, and then select "In-Store Pickup" to save on shipping costs.




There are a lot of reasons to come visit us in Historic Downtown Newton, KS.

We have great neighbors. Other local retailers with unique shops, and locally owned restaurants with unique tasty treats!

And right now, we have

IN STORE ONLY

FAT QUARTER BUNDLES, specially priced at

4 FQs FOR $5.99



These are all new bundles. Available only during AUGUST and only while supply lasts!
Check them out when you are here. Such a deal at less than HALF PRICE!

There are lots of VILLA ROSA postcard patterns written just for fat quarters.

And Fran Morgan's book, FAT QUARTER QUILTING FUN, to mention just a few ideas.





FYI -

FQ = Fat Quarter = 18" x 22" (1/2 of a 1/2 yard)

F8 = Fat Eighth = 9" x 22" or 18" x 11" (1/2 of a 1/4 yard or 1/2 of a FQ)

LOW VOLUME = white, off-white or grey background with some print, which can be low contrast or high, but not much of it, so it is "low volume" (??) .

In demand, check out our newest LOW VOLUME FAT EIGHTH BUNDLES, plus LOW VOLUME CHARM PACKS, and LOW VOLUME 5" x 10" packs.

All cut right here at Charlotte's from current in-stock fabrics on bolts.





These are great for collage backgrounds. They add interest and can be "sparkly" backgrounds in scrap quilts. This is a unique variety that we've pulled and cut from our own shelves. Most of these are still available by the yard.

Don't miss this special opportunity to build a scrappy stash of LOW VOLUME prints. Turn your boring backgrounds into interesting ones! ;)

Merilyn Austin showed this modern scrappy quilt in the recent Wichita quilt show. She had an excellent eye for selecting fabric.

I selected the fabrics for our bundles, all 44 different prints, with Merilyn very much in my mind. I pay tribute to and thank her for the inspiration, past & present.




This summer in the store we have more flowers than ever! Come & pick a few. ;)

FLORAL BORDER STRIPES from In The Beginning make such beautiful, simple to sew, table runners. Check these out. Kits available.

You may already own a 60-degree TRIANGLE RULER. If not, we do!.




Speaking of "summer flowers", pick the long-blooming cone flower now.

A symbol of strength and healing, Anna Maria's ECHINACEA GLOW FLOWERS are back in stock and we've even added another colorway - Algae!




If your mood is turning to AUTUMN, check out the newest from KIM DIEHL.





KIM DIEHL's newest fabric line, HARVEST HILLhas arrived.

Start with a KIT for HARVEST HILL, a 64 inch square quilt, featuring pumpkins, maple leaves and more, all in Kim's classic prints.
You can download the pattern here for free.




Sampler Class - starts in September, using EVENING SONG pattern.

Tempted, but need ideas for doing it in different colors?
You've come to the right place!

Check out these suggested fabric groups!

And if you don't feel up to this quilt, come on in and let's pull you a simpler pattern and explore the same fabric combinations.

Playing with fabric is our favorite game! ;)










This heat has had everyone sewing. I hope you're finishing some quilt tops and will stop in soon for BACKING.

These are just a sampling of our 108"+ WIDE BACKINGfor finishing your quilts without the need to seam the back!

Look at these awesome colors & prints!



Have a great rest of the week.

Charlotte
