This year’s Christmas Party was a big hit! We had so many stop in to eat and talk to us. We really had a lot of fun with this, so we look forward to doing this again in the future. Thank you to everyone who brought treats, we really enjoyed the day with all of you!
We got some of the action on camera! Even though a few of you tried to hide, I got you! Very sneaky with that camera!
The food was great, the company was wonderful, and we just had an amazing Christmas party! Thanks to everyone of you!
At the Cotton Patch we love having new visitors. I just love when people come in to share their projects and find new ones too! You can visit us at 6194 E Hobbes Rd in Woodlawn, IL. We are located 1/4 of a mile south of Interstate 64 off of exit 69 (Woodlawn), on the left hand side. We also do special appointments. If you are not able to make it during our normal hours, please give me a call, and we will work something out, so you too can stop by and share in the fun!
New to our shop is the Morgan Lap Stand. I have just started several exciting embroidery projects, and I have a hard time holding a regular hoop. This tool is so nice to have because it sits on your lap, and your hand doesn’t tire from holding the hoop. Sure is a nice useful tool. With Red Work, and Blue Work back in, and Christmas just around the corner, this would make a great gift! We have 2 sizes, 7″/9″ or 7″10″. This cool new tool is available online on our website as well as in the store. Happy Quilting!

This project was so much fun, and easy too! You would never have guessed that it could be made with 2 1/2″ strips! I chose to use pinks and browns for my color theme. Pink and Brown has been in this year, and they compliment each other well. I also chose to use reproduction fabrics as well in this project. I just love reproductions, and they give this piece a dainty feel to it. It’s a gorgeouse wall-hanging piece, and it’s not too difficult. It makes a size 26″ square. If your looking for this pattern you can find it in the shopping section of the website under the patterns category. Have fun with this project! Happy Quilting!
