Happy New Year from the Quilt Basket!

Greetings from Pawling!!

We hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!! This year was a very special one for us.  Carter is now 19 months old and had the true spirit of Christmas.  The past few weeks as I have been decorating, shopping and baking; he has been watching trying to figure out what was going on.  Thankfully my very busy little boy was very good about not touching the tree, ornaments, decorations or my beautiful tree skirt. Christmas morning he was so amazed and excited that Santa came to visit us.  It took us most of the day to get through all of his presents, but to see that little face full of joy was priceless.  I already cannot wait until next year. I can only imagine how much more he will understand and how excited he will be! I had better start shopping, quilting and planning now!

The rest of the afternoon was spent at my aunt’s house.  It is such a wonderful feeling when everyone gets together to laugh, reminisce and enjoy each others company and many family traditions.  My brother has a daughter, Sophie, who is 15 months old.  She of course was as overwhelmed and enthusiastic as Carter.  The two of them playing together, helping each other open gifts, hugging each other and every once in a while running from one another made this a very special day.  I have another niece and nephew, who unfortunately didn’t make the trip here for Christmas, but we were able to spend Thanksgiving together.  Four kids, ranging from 15 months to 3 years, in one house together is an amazingly wonderful experience.  I am sure in future years there may be some arguing, but right now they all play with one another with innocence and curiosity. I cannot wait for the next holiday when we are all together again!

Now that the holidays are over, it is time to start getting ready for the New Year!! We have a busy schedule of classes coming this year and an abundance of brand new fabric lines.  These are all available on our website as well as in store. Please click on the link to view our Newsletter Winter 2015

One of our newest lines is the Robert Kaufman Diary of aWimpy Kid collection.  My cousin Dorrian, also known as the Pawling Chicken, has been reading this series of books for as long as I can remember.  There was no option but to get this fabric as soon as we saw it.  This line is perfect for lunchboxes, pajama pants, pillowcases and other great gift ideas for kids!

My little guy, Carter, loves trucks, tractors, cars and bikes.  When I saw the new Robert Kaufman Ready Set Go 2 Collection, I had to have it! Now that the holidays are over my imagination is running wild to create all sorts of fun items for Carter using this fabric.  I will be sure to keep you updated on the great ideas I have! Below are a few of the fabrics in this line, to show you just how adorable they are.

We of course have not just been getting new children’s lines in this week, but also the brand new Dear Stella Lila Collection. This sophisticated yet fun and flirty fabric is deep purples and blues contrasting with a cool marine green.  I can picture this beautiful collection used for little girl’s dresses, purses or as a quilt in a bedroom for people of all ages. This line is available as a Cutie Pack or as yardage on our website and in store.  

I hope you enjoyed reading about our family Christmas and some of our newest collections.  Please be sure to check our website for all of our great lines available.  

We wish you a healthy and happy New Year!!
