Happy Year to Everyone

It has been over a month since I got my fingers on the keyboard and up-dated the happenings at Bright Hopes Quilting and for this, I truly apologize.

In full disclosure, it's been 2 weeks! since I have set foot in the door due to the holidays falling on a Thursday and my work schedule but it's so COOL to walk in again and find so much newness all over the place. Pearl and the staff keep generating beautiful samples of new fabrics and patterns. Linda Kay has the new newsletter out and if you would like us to pop one over via email, drop us a line at

Also please note that I have added above the new class schedule calendars. Lots of classes and a few new twists. I will try to remember to keep "lifting" the calendar as the days go by to make it easier to see.

OKAY! on to What's New!

The Gum Drop Pillow The two different size samples were made by Linda Kay and make great gifts for that elementary thru high school or college kid in your life! Use wild Kaffe Fassett fabrics or buggy juveniles and watch them throw themselves on it! She's got a class coming up for it as well, Thursday January 14th if you want a little guidance for your first one.

This is Eclectic Garden by Jason Yenter at In the Beginning Fabrics and we really do enjoy the innovative fabric motifs he designs as well as the clever quilts that are made with them. This pattern comes with our kit. $72.99

Our Mini Quilt Block of the Month is full but we still have a few spots left for Leslie's Washington Medallion Quilt I wrote about back in November. Here's reminder:

As you see, it is awesomely beautiful, all batiks, but what you DON'T see is the quilting on this.... you have to drop by to witness it. It measures 84" square and costs $24.99 a month. SO if you are inspired to step up your sewing skills and give a BOM a try, this is definitely one for the memories.

January is fresh and new and we at Bright Hopes are ready to get busy creating new quilts! However, if you are anything like me, you still have a few UFOs hiding that need a little attention and we encourage you to drag them out, put them in a prominent spot so they nag at you and bring to our UFO Fridays (the first Friday of every month).
Let's get them finished and move forward!

Happy New Year to 2010.
