The Scoop + American Quilting

I have received emails asking about the hidden kits...and although I did find them after a frantic hunt I didn't share them here on the blog.  So, for those of you that may have missed the dear friend Cakers dropped a bombshell during a sew day at the Quiet River Retreat!  She had hidden in my sewing room 2 kits that she had in her sewing room since 1997!  She didn't like them anymore and decided my sewing room was as good a place as any to unload them!  Now granted I don't think these photos do them justice...they are full applique kits for one big block.  Included is a full page template, backing, batting  and fabrics.  They are so old that the plastic bags they were packaged in feels funny and I don't think they are BPA free, lol.  Original price was $18 a kit...All I can say is Fabric very afraid!!!

Although I usually do a book or movie review on Friday...I have been a slacker and have not finished one  book this week...nor watched a movie...wonder why???  Well it is because of Mother Naure, God, Alah, Creator, Jehovah, Yaweh or Dhamma...whoever you believe created this world we live in...well, she/he is the ultimate quilter and I have been distracted by the beauty of it all.

I was amazed by the local pictographs...I see a quilt in this, lol

I had no idea when I ventured into this shop in Orem, Utah that it would all be home to one of my favorite pattern lines, Under The Garden Moon!

Amereican Quilting is a shop that everyone would enjoy.  There is a little something for each of you.  Google Maps lead us there as it is tucked into a strip mall in a very busy area.  

Full disclosure...I couldn't pass up a seasonal set...(I am so over the monthly quilts)  These are an Under the Garden Moon pattern set.  A piece of off white wool and a litte thread I have been looking for to match the angel wings I am stitching.

Enjoy the slide show!  And if you find something you have to have...check out their website or give them a call at American Quilting!
See ya back on Monday and have a wonderful weekend!
