We have patterns, kits that include wool and fabrics for quilt top and binding (both regular size and mini) plus Valdani thread kits to match. Order yours today and get "hooked" on wool.

NEW Summer Fun Block of the Month NEW
Fun block of the month features scenes from your favorite summer
memories! Each of the pieced and applique blocks has a summer theme.
There's fresh lemonade and strawberry stands, an ice cream cart,
sailboat, beach cottage and a grand finale firework stand with

patriotic red and white bunting with blue stars.
Summer Fun combines easy piecing with simple fused applique. The

Maywood Fabrics. Our block of the month kits will include all the exact

specialty fabric pack that includes the whimsical signs and
windowscapes, a specialty button pack, floss, rick rack, and the
