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.



Snow Storms and Quilt Shows

Both of these items are occupying my mind today.  We are in the middle of one of the most severe snow storms we have had in the last 20 years or so, and I am preparing to leave in less than 48 hours for a quilt show in Oklahoma City.  It is a good thing we have some extra time built into the schedule as we may not be on the road as soon as I had hoped.  In the meantime the snow is a wonderful reminder of just how lucky we all are to have a warm house and electric power to be able to keep using our toys, such as my sewing machine and computer.

I have been sewing and baking all day.  It happens to be my husband’s birthday.  He is enjoying homemade bread and apple pie.

My sewing has seen a bed runner top completed.  Now to find a piece of batting and really complete the project.  This runner will be on display in Oklahoma City.

This show will be at Cox Pavilion on the Oklahoma State Fair Grounds.  It is open 10a – 5p Thursday – Saturday, January 9-11.

We also have a couple of new Stable Piecing blocks coming out in February. They’ll be available to order online as well as over the phone. Two variations and sizes of the Mariner’s Compass that have been in the works for quite a while now! The one on the left is the 18in Mariner’s Compass with 11 different colors. Isn’t it just gorgeous! The one on the right is the 12in Mariner’s Compass with 4 different colors. Both were pieced by Virginia Schewe.
