New Books---

Colorific by Pam Goecke Dinndorf, also known as Aardvark Quilts

Not just a quilt book, but a lesson in color as well.  Pam has a special knack for pulling together great colors, and she is sure that any of us can do the same!  She includes 26 pages of instruction in fabric selection, considering many variables in the overall combination.

Following the lesson in color and fabric choice, there are 6 new projects with instructions.  The color photography of the quilts is really exceptional, and when I saw that the photographer was Craig Blacklock I knew why.  He has published several photography books and won many awards.  Many of his photos are shot along the north shore of Lake Superior, and you might recognize some landmarks in this book.

Crazy 'Til the Cows Come Home by The Buggy Barn--
Pam Soliday and Janet Nesbitt

Not wanting to disappoint their fans and followers, Pam and Janet have once again designed new quilts with their distinctive style using the stacking, shuffling and freezer paper techniques.  They have 6 new quilts that are sure to please you, including, of course, some very cute cows with a little surprise embellishment that is udderly wonderful!

Chevron Love and The Centerpiece Tablemat

Sweet Treasures by Terri Staats has released 2 new patterns that we really liked.  First, a very do-able centerpiece tablemat that would look great in so many fabrics that I don't know where to begin!

Chevron Love is what it's all about now--we saw chevrons all over the place in fabric and patterns.  The neat thing about this booklet is the 3 sizes of chevrons and multiple sized projects for each.  So you can easily make a tablerunner, baby quilt, lap quilt or bed quilt with this booklet.

If any of these are calling your name, just pick up the phone and give us a call at 651-429-1039 and we will be happy to help you!
