Sew Sweet Quilt Shop, Brunswick, MO

At Guild today we were fortunate to have as our guests Sew Sweet Quilt Shop owners, Jeanette Frock and Jessica Defibaugh, the mother and daughter team behind this exciting shop that opened just over a year ago.  They brought some beautiful quilts to show and offer kits, fabrics, classes, patterns and special day long sewing events that include food made from Paula Deen recipes.  Sound like fun to me!  Our own Dawn Heese has taught at their shop and they  are offering Dawn's BOM and books and patterns.

Jessica and Jeanette were just back from Quilt Market in Houston and Jessica talked about the modern quilt movement for today's busy quilters who don't have the time to produce complicated quilts.  The modern quilt movement is fueled by the prolification of precut fabrics such as charm squares, jellyrolls, layercakes, honeybuns, and other convenient ways of packaging a variety of fabrics that are already coordinated to make beautiful quilts.

This quilt was made from 2 layer cakes and kits are available at the shop

This beautiful navy blue quilt showcases Jeanne Poore's original embroidery flower basket blocks---and each flower basket is different.  Sew Sweet Quilt Shop has the kit for this, also.

This impressive quilt is made from "Celebrating Abe" fabric by Jody Barrows.  The fabric is printed from original photographic images of Civil War soldiers.  This quilt uses Jody Barrow's square in a square technique and both the fabric and the kit are available at Sew Sweet Quilt Shop

This fabric comes in red as well as the black colorway and makes an impressive Civil War commemorative quilt.  They brought other quilts from kits they offer at their shop as well.

Sew Sweet Quilt Shop will have a  exhibitor's booth at the Boonslick Trail Quilters Guild Show, Quilt Expressions 2010,  that takes place this Saturday (10AM to 6PM) and Sunday (10AM to 4PM) at Stoney Creek Inn, 2601 S. Providence Road in Columbia, MO.

Sew Sweet Quilt Shop has an on line store as well as their shop in Brunswick.  Their website and Jessica's blog address is:    http://www.sewsweetquiltshop.com/     and   http://www.sewsweetquiltshop.blogspot.com/  .   Take time to visit their shop.  You'll like  what they have to offer.
