Hi all!
Happy July!

It is always fun to see who or what inspires you, from a grandchild calling to ask "are you making me a quilt?" to a picture in a magazine.  

Recently Lois came in with a project "in progress".  She was inspired by our very own tile floor!

This is an ENGLISH PAPER PIECING project, which Lois has done completely by hand.  

Click to check out our selection of ENGLISH PAPER PIECING TEMPLATES here.

Lois has finished the hand piecing and is currently hand quilting.  We'll share a photo of the finished quilt as soon as she brings it in.  Go Lois!

We've received lots of new fabric, rearranged the store, again! And are gearing up for a change of seasons.  (Yes, Christmas is not only coming, it has arrived at Charlotte's!)

Check out some of our newest MARK-DOWNS in BARGAINS & SPECIALS.
Are you doing a good job managing to JUGGLE SUMMER, and does your TRAVELOGUE include Newton, KS this summer?  We hope so!

Row By Row Experience has started! We've already met lots of new customers, and reconnected with old friends too. :) Be sure to stop in both quilt stores, for two different FREE PATTERNS!
It took more than a week, but a new friend has called to my attention that the template in our EAU LILY HUNTERS STAR pattern is wrong.  I highly recommend using The Cottage Ruler by Creative Grids.  I provided a template for those who don't purchase the ruler.  I state on the template that two angles need to be 45-degrees, but somehow, my shape got "spread", and it isn't right.  If you use that paper template as is, you won't have a pretty water lily. Using any ruler with a 45-degree line, re-draw the side angles so they are 45-degrees from the bottom line, before cutting.  New lines illustrated in green below.
You need to correct the angles on the ends of the TRAPEZOID TEMPLATE.  That wrong angle, as my original pattern is printed, will not have symmetric petals
Trapezoids cut with wrong angle.
NOT the shape I was going for.
Sorry for this goof up!
A lesson in geometry, and how fast things can go wrong!  Be sure to make the correction before cutting or better yet, get The Cottage Ruler!
This is how pretty they should look!
Eau Lily Hunters Star is available at Charlotte's Sew Natural, 710 N Main St in Historic Downtown Newton.

In addition to the FREE row pattern, there is also a more advanced version with a fabric kit that includes both pink & green fabrics, plus the border & binding.
Snowman Fishing Story is available at Charlotte's Bargain Fabric, south end of Newton at Chisholm Trail Shopping Center on I-135 & SE 36th St.
New this year, collectible
We have two CUSTOM PINS, unique to our store, plus two EVENT PINS.
Start your ROW BY ROW collection here!
All 3 brick & mortar stores will be CLOSED Saturday July 4th.  The web sites will be completely open and available.  :)
