“Quilts are like mom’s cooking…”

“…they both give comfort.” Anonymous

This weekend we celebrate the joy and love of mom’s everywhere. With that we wanted to give you an update from our “Shop Mom” Irene Erdei.

As you may remember, Miss Irene broke several bones in her leg and had surgery. She is recovering nicely and is so appreciative of each of your well wishes, cards, flowers and most importantly visits. She genuinely misses everyone and hopes to be back in the shop taking classes again as soon as possible.

Another of our special “Mom’s” and wonderful teachers here at What’s Your Stitch ‘n Stuff surprised us all today with the pieced top for our next Block of the Month. Jerri Campbell is a walking encyclopedia of quilting and we were excited to see how beautiful the “Women of Courage” Block of the Month pieced top turned out that she quilted and is now proudly displayed in the shop.

Windham Fabrics latest collection by Nancy Gere™ was inspired by the new ‘Women of Courage’ Block of the Month designed by Denice Lipscomb. The Women of Courage fabric collection has luscious floral prints, beautiful tonal blenders and a breathtaking color palette of brown, tan, red, teal and green. The 12 month BOM is special because each block from the program corresponds to a brave and courageous woman in world history. The cost of this BOM is $25 a month for 12 months and includes the pattern and fabric to complete the 98″ x 98″ quilt top and binding.

The fabric for this collection arrives in just a few weeks and we’ll begin cutting each BOM kit soon after it arrives to officially begin in June. So don’t wait, sign up today for this truly fabulous quilt.

There are several new books and some new fall/holiday fabrics that arrived this week that would make a perfect gift for Mother’s Day. Enjoy the weekend and remember, we love show and tell!

Happy Mother’s Day!
