Welcome to Jeana Kimball's Foxglove Cottage.
Here you will find books, patterns, needles,
and other notions for your stitching pleasure.
We are pleased to present a new Christmas quilt pattern booklet with a CD-ROM. An Old Fashioned Christmas is filled with appliqué scenes reminiscent of simpler times when carolers sang on front door steps, when family and friends gathered around blazing fires in the fireplace, and when a flaming plum pudding was served for Christmas dinner desert. The thirteen appliqué designs are framed with simple piecing into a 68" x 78" wall quilt.
This pattern comes with a CD-ROM that provides close-up views of the quilt and each of the appliqué blocks. Also included in the pattern are full-sized complete pattern drawings, clear and complete instructions for stitching this quilt, and detailed quilting guidance. Back-basting, needle-turn appliqué, and embroidery techniques are also thoroughly described.
We are also pleased to announce a new line to our Foxglove Cottage Needle Collection.
Utility Quilting Needles are the needle of choice for quilters using large stitches. A long, sturdy shank prevents the needle from bending, while the embroidery eye of the Utility Quilting needle allows for easy threading of perle cotton, crochet cotton, or yarn.
These excellent English needles are available in four sizes, Sizes 11, 10, 9, and 8. They are packaged in clear plastic cylinders with 12 needles per package.
Utility Quilting Needles are also available in a Needle Sampler.
