Spring is in the air, and our shop is buzzingwith excitement! We have scheduled some great new Block of the Months that we can't wait to share with you, our wonderful customers. First in the lineup: Amish with a Twist 2, a block of the month for both the beginner and the advanced quilter alike. If you love the look of appliqué but don't enjoy the process, Family Tree, featuring Paint Box Batiks by Laundry Basket Quilts, brings the intricate look of appliqué without the labor! Toes in the Sand will have you visiting a new beach each month as you create your own quilt reminiscent of sand and sea. First Ladies, a 12 month celebration of the lives of some very special women in the history of our country, starts in September! October brings 8 months of total suspense, as we introduce "Quilter's Dessert", our Mystery Quilt Club. And, last but not least, November brings Prairie Rose by Jo Morton. Don't miss out! There is sure to be a block of the month for everyone!
If you are looking for some great bargains, don't forget our legendary Sidewalk Sale on Monday, August 5th. If you have never joined us, you are in for a real treat. Remember to come early for the best deals!
We have several adventures planned! A "Meet Your Feet" retreat is scheduled for late August.

FAVORITE QUILTING TIPS
Date: Fourth Thursday of the month................1pm - 4pm
Yes, even HCQ has Bag Ladies--Baltimore Album Group that is! The story is that this informal group first started getting together to make a Baltimore Album quilt. However, after that first ambitious project they continue to meet and focus on hand applique of any nature. Show and Tell of current projects is a favorite on their meeting agenda. All are welcome so please join us for fun!
