Three new Studio 180 Patterns, designed by Michelle Renee Hiatt

Amusement  ~ Amusement is a fun and quirky quilt inspired by the Ferris Wheels found on the Amusement Piers in NJ, where Michelle grew up. Ferris Wheels are enjoyed by so many of us, just like this quilt will be for the quilter making it and the recipient receiving it.

Summer BlossomsSummer Blossoms was inspired by the vast flower gardens at Michelle’s home in Connecticut.  This quilt has a light, airy feeling that provides a lot of movement, giving the illusion of flowers blowing in the summer breeze.

Whirling LemoynesWhirling Lemoynes creates a spinning effect that was inspired by those fun whirling flower lawn ornamants. It's a whimsical quilt that teaches you how to piece Lemoynes and 4-pointed stars without paper piecing. You can go scrappy, or use fat eighths, eighth yard cuts, or a Jelly Roll for your Lemoyne Star points.


KITS ~ all kits are 20% off during the month of January (while supplies last).  Please note that many of our kits utilize Studio 180 tools and are listed with the kit description under "suggested products".


Our regular shop hours continue ~ Tuesday thru Saturday, 10 AM ~ 4PM.  

Occasionally we have appointments during our regular work week hours and need to close for the day.  Always check our home page for listings of closures before you decide to visit. (closed listings are located directly under the slide show)

We look forward to seeing you ~ whether in the shop, online or at our FACEBOOK page.  And please remember to shop with us today so we will be here for you in the future.
