Another summer has flown by! The feel of autumn is in the air ~ the nights are cooler and the leaves are showing hints of oranges and reds across the tops of the mountains. Mother Nature is going to have work really hard to beat last years beauty! Visit Maine’s Official Fall Foliage website to start planning your leaf peeping adventures.
We have enjoyed chatting with our new and returning summer visitors. Many positive and kind comments were heard about our shop including:
This shop has the best quality samples and quilts.
You always have such good quality products.
This is a lovely shop ~ the quilts are masterpieces.
This shop is always so neat and organized.
I love your fabrics!
And my personal favorite:
The quilts you are selling are priced way too low for the quality of work you do.
Love that the word “quality” keeps popping up. Our philosophy is this: do the absolute best you can in whatever you are doing, doesn’t matter if you live in Rangeley ME or NYC. If you are a professional in whatever job, skill, etc that you have, doing your best and taking pride in your work is an honorable goal.

NEW PATTERN “Jenn’s Journey” ~ Michelle Renee Hiatt designed this modern play on a Snail’s Trail quilt layout in honor of a longtime friendship. The pattern goes together with ease using Studio 180’s Diamond Rects and NEW Large Square Squared. Dan has been working diligently getting the throw version completed. He says that it was lots of fun and wishes he had made the larger one. The pattern will be available later this month but pre-orders may be placed here.
