Mr. Rooster Cup and the Mariner’s Compass Quilt Sale

We introduced Mr. Rooster Cup last week as our mascot. He goes on various adventures through the fabric and products we have in the shop, learning something new about them in the process. He also introduces new products!

Today, Mr. Rooster Cup is very pleased to let you all know that the quilt behind him is the introduction of our 18″ Mariner’s Compass Quilt Kit and Block, which are officially ready! This quilt top was pieced by three generations of ladies in the Farmland Quilting store: Virginia Schewe (grandma), Lora Kennedy (mom), and Jenny Ferguson (daughter). It will be on display in our booth at the Paducah Quilt Show!

We also have a very special surprise for all of you: the Stable Piecing foundation kit to make this quilt will be available to purchase on our website on Wednesday at 9am! Due to this special debut, we have decided to offer a discount for all online purchases of this quilt kit between Wednesday and Saturday, corresponding to the Paducah Quilt Show times. You will receive $9.25 off and free shipping on each and every quilt kit! It’s a great deal, and only available through next Saturday!

Here is a picture of the whole quilt! Enjoy.

Today, drinking his French Vanilla coffee, he ventured near the wide back fabric and found something new! Wide back flannel, white and natural in color, This flannel is 100% cotton and is 108″ wide!

This fleece is great for quilt backing and those projects that require a little extra width. At only $11.99 per yard, Mr. Rooster Cup approves of this great bargain. Stay tuned to see what he turns up with next week!

 

Forgotten Shops Hop: April 11-19

Forgotten Shops Hop

 

This spring, a new quilt shop hop’s coming to town! Presenting the Forgotten Shops Hop, this hop features nine quilt stores in Central Illinois. These shops are normally outside the geographic boundaries of most hops in South Central Illinois, so we decided to get together to create one of our own!

The quilt theme for this year is Forgotten Blocks, using fabrics and block patterns from the 1880’s-1900’s. Each shop will have a 12” quilt block kit for purchase for $5, including tax. Each shop will also have a finishing kit available. This means you get lots of options to choose from!

Pictures of the finished quilts will be posted on the Facebook pages of Farmland Quilting & Embroidery, Main Street Quilt Company, Mini Mall Quilt Shop, The Wooden Spool, and Times Square Sewing Complex.

Hours: On Friday, April 11 & 18, all shops will be open from 9a-7p. On Saturday, April 12 & 19, all shops will be open from 9a-3p. The rest of the week, all shops will maintain their normal hours.
