Isn't this quilt amazing? With the clever use of wide, pieced sashings, cornerstones, and setting triangles, this quilt only looks complicated! From Wing And A Prayer Designs, with newly released batiks from Timeless Treasures, it's a gorgeous neutral palette of mocha, soft grey, blues, and muted green. We will offer it as a BOM for 10 months, beginning April 2nd.

Ruler of the Month club from Handi Quilter is back! It's not too late to get in on this great program that will build your ruler skills and stash of gadgets. Once a month for 6 months you'll meet here at Bluebird Quilt Studio for a short intro and practice session on the current ruler. Handi Quilter also provides additional videos on the awesome things you can do with these great tools. Whether you quilt with a traditional long arm on a frame, a sit down long arm, or domestic machine, rulers can work for you! Give us a call if you'd like to join in the ruler fun!

The journey of a thousand quilts
begins with a single stitch
Several streets in downtown Nampa are all torn up with road construction projects. We hope these alternate directions will help you arrive easily.
If you are coming from Caldwell (West), you can come on Nampa Caldwell Blvd, (which turns into 3rd) and turn right onto 14th as usual.
There is one lane open on both 2nd and 3rd, but you cannot drive on any cross street between 12th and16th. The right turn from 3rd onto14th works just fine.
If you are coming from Boise (East), get off the freeway at Garrity, come up Garrity and turn left onto 16th (just under the overpass, along the edge of the park), cross over the next overpass and go to 4th. Turn right on 4th, go 2 blocks to 14th, turn right and we are down on the left.
Treasure Shop Hop is almost here! April 19-28th with a special preview tour bus April 17th and 18th. 12 quilt shops in western Idaho and eastern Oregon to visit and collect a block kit and pattern. CLICK HERE for a list of shops.
Time is winding up for our Sew Much Love community service project. Bring your quilts to the shop before April 19 so we can have them on display for customer voting during Shop Hop.
