New Patterns

I've been busy making lots of quilt tops from the new patterns shown here that I picked up at the Trend show at EE Schencks I attended recently.
I will show you the Quilts as I finish quilting them. Most of the Patterns I choose are ones that you can easily use Pre-cuts (fat Quarters) or your scraps to piece them with. I'm hoping to sell kits later on so I'm testing out patterns to see which ones I want to sell.
Along with the patterns I bought a line of Maywood Fabric and once it arrives I will make something beautiful and show you that as well.
I started a new blog just for my Longarm business called CityView Quilting, there I will share some customer quilts as well as post information and details about my longarm business. Not much there yet, but I hope you stop by once in awhile. And if you need longarm services just e-mail me.
The link for the new blog is at the top and on the side of this blog page. Thanks for stopping by.

It's A Beautiful Day

SPRING IS HERE...for one more day!!!

I Couldn't resist. Sharla brought 1 primrose home from work yesterday, so when I went to the store today I picked up 3 more to put in this really cute flowerpot.
It was so beautiful outside today, Sunny warm and 65 degrees clear as a bell. Sure felt like spring, even looks like spring. The weatherman must be wrong because he says it's going to snow next week. Oh no!! Sharla's already planted her peas and beans. The other beds are empty, her other veggie starts are in the greenhouse in the basement. yep you read it right. Her greenhouse is in the basement. Her onions are planted next door. She's beginning to take over the neighborhood as well as the house. Well I just wanted to show off her Peas...and her raised beds that are ready and waiting. She's been really working hard after work. Maybe next time if I remember I'll take a picture of her worm compost, yes they really do eat the wet garbage, I'm actually very surprised/amazed in fact. Thanks for stopping by today.

In Business Now

CityView Quilting is now open for Business!
When I read the community paper today I saw my ad, what a surprise because it wasn't suppose to be in the paper until next week. Oh well, it will work out fine. Good thing the mailman comes early, I had 1 call just after I read it. I have the weekend off, so I'll finish getting the entry ready and look for a flag of some sort. My business is in my home, I was a little surprised when the inspector said I could have a small sign and he even suggested getting a flag. Anyway this day has ended up being kinda exciting. Thanks for stopping in.
