Crazy Fun and Done!

We are so excited to have a new designed in-store pattern called "Jo-Anne's Crazy Fun and Done"!  This quilt was designed by shop owner, Jo-Anne Craig and is simply the most fun quilt piecing you'll ever do!  Using the "Fun & Done" quilt-as-you-go technique developed by Prairie Sky Quilting, this generous lap size quilt whips up in no time.  We made ours using flannels from Henry Glass & Co. and have kits all ready and waiting for you to pick up!  This simple pattern would be just as lovely done in cottons as well.   The shop, also, carries uniquely sized cotton batting which is perfect for use in this quilt.  We have in stock a variety of other patterns from Prairie Sky Quilting using the Fun and Done method.

The Fun and Done technique uses this creative ruler/template. Check out this quick video to see how it works.  

For more information on this technique, visit and visit their FAQ page.

 Another creative technique for flannels and homespuns is the ever popular raggy edge quilts.  We have a great new pattern for a rag quilt and a super cutting tool from Fiskars that makes clipping the edges much easier on the hands and wrists!
