What's New @ Cut Up & Quilt!



Getting Ready for Summer


Although it feels like March, we're actually in the midst of May and things are hopping around here.  We're keeping busy with all kinds of activity preparing for the All Iowa Shop Hop to kick off June 1st. Later in June, you'll find us at the Omaha Quilt Show.  The Row-by-Row "Taste the Experience" also starts June 21st.  And we'll be finishing the month with a 5th Saturday.  

Thanks to everyone for pulling together for our local flood victims.  We continue to be a drop off site for quilts intended for flood victims.  Jeanine Williams from Quilts of the Bluffs is collecting them for careful and considerate distribution of those who lost so much in the flood.  We have collected well over 100 quilts at this time and more continue to come in. Not all donated quilts come through us, so there are many more quilts that have been contributed.   


In addition to quilts we're also collecting socks and underwear for all sizes; boys and girls; children and adults.  If you are wondering how else you might be able to help, contact the Mills County Emergency Management Office


2019 Sew Iowa Begins June 1st!

The All Iowa Shop hop begins on June 1st.  The magazines have arrived and are ready for you to purchase so you can plan your trip around Iowa.  The passport is included in the magazine, however, you can print a passport from the All Iowa Shop Hop Web Site.  We have all the fabric available for pre-orders at a slight discount.  Order yours today by calling or stopping in the shop.  We have a couple samples in the shop to show you how you can use the fabric, but we also have designers working on additional samples.  You'll want to stay posted.  

 

New Block of the Month


Stellar Starburst is our next block of the month.   It was brought to our attention by a customer and we found it so striking we jumped on board!  We're using Timeless Treasures fabrics with a bit of bling to them. This fun quilt uses only seven fabrics and is suitable for all skill levels.  The quilt pattern has three size options.  We'll be doing the Large 106" X 106" as our shop BOM.  However, we will be happy to kit up any of the three size options as a whole kit option.


Begins: June 1, 2019
Registration:  $25.00 
Monthly Payment:  $19.99 for 12 months.  Includes pattern, fabric for the large size quilt and binding.  

Preorders for Complete Kits are available and ready for pick-up on June 1st.

Large 106" x 106" $239.00 (includes pattern)
Medium 72" x 72"  169.00 (includes pattern)


Upcoming Classes 


Check out the classes/calendar page for our current list of classes and events.  It's always changing with new additions that sometimes don't make it to the newsletter.  Just click on the class you want and register on-line or in the shop.  If the class is full, please add your name to the waiting list.  It helps our instructors determine if another class will be added.

Please give us the courtesy to let us know if you cannot attend.  It gives us a chance to contact someone who would love your spot.  We will refund your registration if we have at least a 24 hour notice.  





Jean has scheduled a UFO on a Thursday evening, May 30th for those who might want to work on an unfinished project. This gives you a chance to have Jean handy in case you have questions.  






Jean's June 1st Feathers class is filled, so she added a second class on June 6th.  It's nearly full but if you would like to take this class, put yourself on the waiting list.  Jean will try to set up another class if there is enough demand. 







Karen's newest class is Emerald City.  It's a beautiful scrap design from scrap quilt diva Bonnie Hunter.  It would be gorgeous in any color.  Join Karen in making this table topper (or quilt) that looks more difficult than it really is.  






Stonehenge 10 Year Anniversary


Our apologies to everyone who is waiting for our Stonehenge Block Party Kit.  We are still waiting for additional fabric to arrive from Northcott.  We expect the fabric any day and will get your blocks shipped to you as soon as we can.  Thank you for your patience!

Northcott is celebrating
 10 years of the Stonehenge Collections.  They have designed the Solstice Collection to celebrate.  There are two contests underway, The International Block Party and the Panel Challenge.  We've received orders for our block kit from all over the U.S.  It's exciting to see where our blocks are going and we will be excited if our block ends up in the winning quilt.  The Panel Challenge is a within shop contest. You just never know, you might be the winner!  

Our block was designed by our local designer, Karen Burns, also known as the Warped Spinster.  She graciously designed this block for us to use as we wish and we are pleased to offer it to you in our Stonehenge Block Kit!
