Chinese Puzzle Quilt for Christmas

I discovered a wonderful versatile project called the Chinese Puzzle Quilt. The recipe is simple, each block requires 5 - 5" squares. Four of the five assortment fabric prints are folded in half diagonally and are placed one at a time on the fifth unfolded square, basted in place one at a time. Below is a photo of my "Christmas" Chinese Puzzle Quilt.
There are several layout possibilities. I made a small pillow using this technique. A great project if you like to add dimesion and texture to your work. (Psst, I rate this project as "super easy" with stunning results
 Contact us if you would like the pattern. The cost is $11.00for the pattern or $50.00 for the kit tax & postage included.

Getting back to sewing this fall

Is it time to think about Christmas gifts to make this fall? We have more Christmas fabric lines at Carola's than we've ever had before! Below is a picture of a very popular Christmas Tree Skirt. We offer it as a pattern or kit. It is easy to make and a simple style for most tastes.

Below is a snapshot of some of our Christmas fabrics and two lines of Autumn themed fabrics too. Do you already have plenty of Christmas Fabrics? We just might have "the right" fabric that will help you pull your project together.
