April News letter
March - In like a lion and out like a lamb! Isn't that true for us this year! We are appreciative of all you who continually support Quail's Nest Quilt Co., LLC. We will have a busy spring with 3 to 4 Quilt shows to attend, new fabric lines, and a new Block of the Month underway. There is a Pioneer Spirit quilt being quilted now, a Route 66 fabric with cars and tools, a New Stars and Stripes VI by Northcott with Mt. Rushmore pictured on it, and a Home Sweet Home line that includes the panel to make Goldilocks, and all the bears. There are charm packs that a simple baby quilt can be made from. There is a barnyard panel with complimentary hexagon and blue fabric for children as well.
Also, there are still some plastic eggs hidden with discounts in them. If you find one we will honor it.
The Block of the month that is in the process of having the sample made is a Sampler Spree with both Lilac Ridge and Summer on the Pond lines of fabric by Moda. More information will be announced soon.
There is a wool Block of the Month still available: Woolly Red Wagons. The monthly wagons are adorable. Check out the newly finished bunny block. These blocks are only $15.99. You do need the pattern to begin the program.
