June 2019 Newsletter

It’s Here!  The All Iowa Shop Hop! 

Yes, we are ready, and can’t wait to see all of you during the month of June.  We’re back to our regular hours starting June 1st:

    Monday through Friday - 10:00 to 4:30
    Saturday - 10:30 to 3:30.

If you are coming through at a different time, give us a call at 1-800-419-2812 and we’ll see what we can work out for you.  Running late, again, give us a call.  If we can, we’ll wait for you.

We have plenty of the Shop Iowa fabric panels and coordinating fabrics.  And, we have some great samples to show you!  When we were at Quilt Market, we found 2 new patterns that we have used with the Shop Iowa fabric.  Both are from Tiger Lily Press and are fun to make and will be fun to use!

The first is “Newfangled Pinwheels”.  This is a new, fun and easy way to make a pinwheel quilt.  We used the Shop Iowa fabric and a fun background with the Table Runner directions.

The second pattern is “Anything Goes”.  It’s a great Table Topper that comes in 4 different sizes, and the smallest one fits the small square on the Shop Iowa panel!  Yea!  The designer has some interesting techniques to put this together without a binding.  And wait till you see how she tells you to turn your corners.  You’ll never do it any other way again!

For those of you traveling in the Southwest Central Region of the All Iowa Shop Hop (AISH), we’re having a treasure hunt!  Purchase the pattern “Tulsa Town” from Villa Rosa Designs for $2.00 from any of the shops.  Sign your name, then show us your pattern and AISH Passport, and we’ll give you a free fat quarter of regular fabric (no batiks or digitally printed fabric).  We have plenty of fat quarters, so enjoy each shop and check out the different samples that have been made.  

When visiting our shop, be aware that construction is still blocking the intersection of Lincoln Way and West 18th Street, but you can still reach us from Hwy 30 and heading North on WEST 18th Street.  Call if you can’t find us!

We’re looking forward to seeing all of you, and we hope you have a great time shopping the wonderful quilt shops of Iowa!

Your Block Party Studios Friends!
