Kathy Brown and More Take 5 Quilts

Kathy Brown at The Teacher's Pet has been designing some really beautiful fabrics lately and we have quite a collection on the shelves here at Bright Hopes Quilting. She is a very busy woman, creating new quilt patterns and books & touring the country. Her most recent book is "More Take 5 Quilts".

Linda Kay just brought in her striking version of the Buzz Cut quilt from this book and she used Brown's newest fabric collection, Maddie, in the sample.

This is a very large bed quilt and Linda Kay will teaching it on Friday, Sept 21. Give us a call to sign up for the class.

Drop by to see more of Kathy Brown's fabrics and pattern as well.

One Week Away From Our Anniversary

9 years ago, Pearl opened Bright Hopes Quilting with a dream of creating a place where quilters gather, share ideas and projects, show finished results and get to know others who love this thing we do: Make Quilts!

9 years. I can't believe it's gone so quickly but next week marks the date and Pearl has lots of fun in store to celebrate with the staff and customers.

If you get our weekly newsletter, you will have learned this afternoon that we will have lots of good sales to kick it off with and hourly drawings for lucky winners. Everyone is a winner with door prizes and a free 9-patch block pattern: Spools. This is our theme for the 3 day Sale-abration.

Each of the staff has created a "spools' quilt that showcases our individual personalities and we are inviting our customers to try to figure out who made each quilt. You will find all ten of them hanging from the ceiling. Take a sheet and list your answers. At the end of the month, we'll reveal the identities and let you know who got the most correct guesses.

Now, we didn't pull any slick maneuvers here; if you know us, you'll know which quilt is ours. I'll give you a hint though.

Last year, around this time we featured interviews with each of the co-workers here at Bright Hopes Quilting. I think you'll get a fresh insight from the answers to the questions.

Good luck guessing and mark your calendars for next Thursday through Saturday to join us and Celebrate 9 Years!
