Focus on Yellow Brick Road

OK, how many of you own this pattern?  OK, how many of you own more then one copy of this pattern?

For those one or two of you who don’t have the pattern, it is “Yellow Brick Road” by Atkinson Designs. $8   I”m sure it is one of the best selling pattern in our store!   And for very good reason.  The quilt is easy to make, especially if you do what the pattern says, when it says to do it…(A rule I sometimes forget to follow…)  The pattern also includes directions for baby size all the way to king size.

Another thing we love about this design is that it uses fat quarters!  You know those wonderful precut fabrics we stock up on in case there is a cotton fabric shortage!  This is a great pattern to actually get a stack of those fat quarters out, cut and into a quilt.

Sue, is having a “Focus on Yellow Brick” road event at the store.  She will have many, many yellow brick road quilts on display to remind you of this ‘classic’ quilt. I think she may also have a mini yellow brick road that Lisa taught as a class.  Minis are sooo cute!   If you have one of these quilts that you would like her to add to the display, bring it in this week and see if Sue has any room left.

In addition all of the ‘girls’ have been kitting this quilt in lots of our new fabrics!  Wouldn’t a nice, friendly quilt pattern sound good right about now?  Need a baby quilt?  We have a kit for that!  Need a bigger quilt?  We have a kit for that too!

Atkinson Designs has also moved into the zipper market, big time.  All those great, colorful zippers we carry at the store, for less then $1, are theirs too.  Perfect for all those cute little purses and totes.

Zippy  Strippy

Afraid of zippers?  Don’t be, they use a very easy method!  No worries there!  Lots of samples of these goodies in the store too.

So, while I settle in for our ice storm here in the mountains, you all go over to the store, and tell the girls “hi” for me.  (Also, if I am missing out on something great over there, let me know!!!)

Later, Sandra





  1. The yellow brick road is so easy a sock monkey could make it 😉

  2. Hi Sandra,
    I ordered the Zippy Strippy pattern from the store before Christmas…I LOVE IT!! I have made 7 or so in several sizes and they go up super quick and are very C.U.T.E . Love her patterns!! I am so glad that you all and other quilt shops are carrying the zippers now, it sure beats the price at the chain fabric stores and so nice to get my zippers at the same time I am purchasing my fabric. 🙂
