Announcing our first Block of the Month!
Calendar Door Hangers from Quiltricks!

Aren't these just adorable! We will be starting this program in August with the September door hanger, the School Bus. Each one of these adorable fusible applique door hangers finishes to 4-1/2" x 9-1/4".  There's a kit for each month that includes the pattern, fabric to complete the top, embellishments and binding. Add your own batting, backing and fusible web. All this for $17.50 per kit. Call the shop 302-533-5215 to sign up. The kits will be ready on the first day of each month! While supplies last, each block will be available on line too! 

Come in and see them all! All done up and ready to hang!
