We just love feathers around here and this quilt has them! The kite shape was somewhat unique, so I designed a custom feather for it…And called it… Feathered Kite. It fell right into place and complimented Emily’s Feathers Border & Corner just as I wanted it to. As another quilter told me once, “Feathers have personality! They HAVE to match.” Well said!
One of our quilt customers chose to enter her quilt into the Paducah AQS show and it was accepted! Kathy Lyon was the piecer of the quilt and I had the honors of quilting it for her.
Here is a link to the article that our local newpaper did on the quilt. I’m still feeling pretty amazed. 🙂
In my amazement, we decided to put our entire website on sale! We normally put merchandise on sale if we go away because of the delayed shipping. But this time we are putting the ENTIRE store on sale. Everything, including digital patterns (which are available for automatic download) will have 15% discount automatically taken at checkout. No coupon code necessary. Please take advantage of the sale while it lasts!
Hey all! Just thought I should post the news that we’re running a Black Friday through Cyber Monday sale again. Our ENTIRE website is 20% off!! We don’t often run sales on our digital quilting patterns so please take advantage of it while you can. No promo code needed – prices are as marked.
I just added some new digital quilting patterns to our website. Roses and feathers. A friend got me out of my “feathers only” box and introduced the rose. Of course, I always find patterns are wonderfully enhanced with feathers – and so these have been “enhanced”. Enjoy! Check them out here: New Products on Three Sisters Fabric
Hope everyone had a great holiday with family and friends! My grandfather and aunt came to spend the holiday weekend with us. It’s great to have them here. We haven’t had a Thanksgiving together in YEARS, so this is a treat.

Anyone who knows me knows that I am quite the java fan. I love a cup of good, strong coffee…. A lot. I enjoy lattes, frappes, and really enjoy the chocolate covered coffee beans I can get at my dad’s bulk food store. In short…. I really like coffee. (Have I said that before?!)
That explains some of my excitement about this new pantograph – Cup Of Joe E2E. It’s just my style… And totally reflects a Cup Of Joe – coffee shop style. It’s not “clip-arty”, but classy just like a great cup of coffee at your local coffee shop. And the stitch out is great…. Quick and smooth.
(And the beans?! Aren’t they great? Love ’em!)
Some of you ordered digital quilting patterns from me a couple of weeks ago while we were out of power. I used back up measures to send them out to you as soon as I possibly could. This post is to show a few pictures of the mess and clean up process…. And to thank you for your patience!
We had two storms come through here only days apart. The first storm hit us pretty hard. No tornadoes were spotted, but the winds had reported gusts of up to 80 mph. Thankfully no one was hurt and we had no structural damage. However, a few trees got pretty badly torn up and our neighbor lost 3 trees in their front yard. One tree was a huge old pine. As it fell to the ground it caught the power lines, ripping them out of the neighbor’s house and damaging the lines to our house and the pole. It also covered the road in its massiveness.
It is an incredible amount of work to clean up that many trees. Our church sent over a few guys with chain saws and Michael came, too. By the end of the day our entire property was clean except for a huge pile in the front yard from the neighbor’s pine. It felt good when time finally allowed and the remains of the storm were completely burnt. What an enormous fire!
The second storm brought 4 tornadoes with it, but they touched down just a couple of miles to the north of us. We had more branches down, but not the major damage that others suffered. One man had his entire barn picked up off its foundation and moved across the street! The hay and equipment was still standing on the foundation. Now, how does a tornado accomplish such a thing?! But it did show me that “gusts up to 80 mph” are definitely a different story than a real, true “tornado”.
When looking at the following pictures, bear in mind that we forgot to take pictures until clean up was well under way. It was even worse…. 🙂
I’m glad that’s over! Hopefully there will be no more tornadoes for a long, long time…………..
