hot cocoa

Sew Katie Jean is celebrating our 2nd Anniversary!

By raffling this Hot Cocoa quilt.  This is our second year at raffling a quilt.  When you come in to buy your ticket we are also selling the pattern ($1.99) and the layer cake ($38.99) plus have weekly classes ($5. each) for you to make it yourself.

When I saw this pattern, I asked each of our SKJ teachers to sew up a block and asked our favorite quilter, Cindy Lloyd to work her magic for some custom quilting.  I thought everyone would love to buy a ticket for a chance to win a Christmas quilt.  You can keep it yourself or give it as a gift!  We should be pulling the winning ticket by October.

The money we raise is going to the Lincoln Lighthouse Resource and Counseling Center.  Last year we donated $500. I would love if we could double that amount this year!  Come in and get your $1. raffle ticket to win a quilt and support a great Lincoln organization that helps our local families.

bake shop

Have you visited the Moda Bake Shop? There is a new link directly to it on my right column. There is a ton of great Moda inspiration there. It will surely get you out of any summer sewing duldrums that you might have!

I just spotted this fun quilt today.  It's made with a new fabric collection from Sweetwater called Road 15. I really like how it's put together by sewing the fabric strips together and then cutting them into the smaller patches.  You could use any two rolls that you have, or use one solid and one print and have your sashing in a contrasting color.

Have a look and get sewing!
