Heirloom Elegance June 2013 Newsletter
New Peppermint Gardens BOM
Come see our new 5 month BOM, in Heirloom
Elegance’s signature colors, entitled Peppermint Gardens. Robyn Pandolph designed the beautiful pink and brown fabric for RJR, while Peddlecar Quilts designed a pattern specifically for this line of fabric. Our sample was constructed by Annette Ezell, B-Ellen Kallas did the applique, Carol Duque of Calico Junction did the quilting, and the binding was sewn on and hand stitched by Rita Steinmetz.
- · Buy the pattern for $9 with the first month’s fabric kit for $28.95.
- · Each month after, for 4 months, purchase the fabric kit for $28.95. Binding for the quilt is included in the last month’s kit.
- · We have several backing choices available for purchase.
- · Come see this gorgeous quilt hanging in our store! There are limited BOM kits available for purchase, so these probably won’t last long.

June 1st, the price of Creative Grids rulers and templates was increased. Before the price increase, we ordered several of their rulers and templates so that we could pass on the current price to our customers. Just be aware we still have a limited number of these helpful tools.
Faye Medina, who is our main teacher, has had family problems recently. Her son, Brian, had a severe wreck Friday, May 24, 2013, totaling Faye’s car and injuring himself severely. We hope you will keep Faye and Brian in your thoughts and prayers.
