As quilters, we seldom throw anything away and some of our quilts have been handed down through many generations. The process of mending a well-loved quilt to extend its life for the next generation is an artful task. So much so that people even specialize in just restoring old quilts.
When you embark on mending a quilt, whether for yourself or someone else, take time to consider what you want the outcome to be.
Should the repairs be nearly invisible, blend into the existing design, or patched to create a whole new feeling and flavor? Will needlework do the trick, or do you need to patch with new fabric or create an applique? Will final hand or machine quilting be required?
Is it batting, backing or binding that you need? Can you resize the quilt or cut away special parts to be used in a new and different quilt? Or perhaps you want to recreate the original quilt using it as a pattern for all new fabric? Whatever you choose, mending is a fine art that takes time, thought and vision mixed with a lot of love.

|Well, as the Christmas Holiday approaches we find ourselves at the end of another year and wondering where all the time has gone. For us, it feels like a blur.|
We kicked off the year with a host of classes and lots of traffic from our winter visitors. By Spring, we were setting-up the April Quiltfest, soon to be followed by Arizona's first Row by Row Experience, and then the July Shop Hop. We barely caught a breath.
We met so many new friends who came by the quilt shop from all corners of the world. We enjoyed seeing all the many quilts that Row by Row participants created well into October. These activities brought in a huge amount of business and, although we were receiving truckloads of new and exciting fabric every week, we could barely keep the shelves stocked.
I am so appreciative of each and every one of you who visit us at the store, whether it's to shop, take a class, catch up and ask for tips, or just say hello. You are our friends and family. We wish you all a safe, happy and blessed holiday season.

'Twas the night before Christmas,
And the quilts were not made.
The threads were all tangled, the cookies delayed.
The stockings weren't hung, the pantry was bare.
The poor weary Quilter, was tearing her hair.
Stacks of fat quarters, tipped over in streams.
Visions of Log Cabins, had turned into dreams.
When what to her wondering eyes should appear,
But a bus full of quilters with all of their gear.
They went straight to work with just a few mutters,
Sorting and stitching and brandishing cutters.
The patterns emerged from all of the clutter,
Like magic the fabrics arranged in a flutter.
Log Cabins, Lone Stars, Flying Geese & Bear Tracks
Each quilt was a beauty-even the backs.
Her house how it twinkled, her quilts how they glowed.
The cookies were baking, the stockings were sewed.
Their work was all done, so they folded their frames,
And packed up their needles, without giving their names.
They boarded the bus, and checked the next address.
More quilts to be made, another quilter in distress.
She heard one voice echo, as they drove out of sight,
Happy quilting to all and to all a good night!
