News from Quilter's JEM for the week of 6/18/20

1525 Central Ave NW / East Grand Forks MN 56721 / (218) 399-0159 /
Hello Friends!

We have a new Christmas line in the shop that we are all pretty excited about: Christmas Memories from Studio E. The panel calls up holiday feelings immediately, and the coordinating bolts are perfect!

We have new fat quarter bundles in perky summer colors available!

Our newest sample on the floor is for our Geometry kit - classic blues and greens with a pop of gold!

You know how sometimes you need a quilty gift  - you want to give them something comforting and encouraging and you want to do it right away? The new Posy-tive Vibes quilt panel fills that spot! It's a 56" x 77" panel that can be quilted and bound as is, or you can give it a border first. We have one quilted and hanging up at the shop if you want to see how it looks!

Pattern spotlight! Stacy Iest Hsu made some great patterns to go with her Safari Life line, and we do still have some of that fabric in stock. But, sometimes we quilters forget that you don't have to use the same fabric as shown in the pattern! For instance, here is the pattern for African Geo:

And here is what it would look like in a more spring-like palette:

Imagine what you could do with these other patterns!

We are not too far away from the 2020 Quilt Minnesota Shop Hop! If you want to see the fabric in person, we now have the bolts on display in the shop (also in the Special Edition Newsletter) and are taking pre-orders - click here for the form! Soon we will also have our kit samples finished and kits will also be available for pre-order!
