This is the busiest time of year for us at the Basin!  Plus, all your FAV quilt shops are vending at their local shows and we need to make sure their needs are met too!  We are beyond busy, but are happy to say we LOVE it!  We can't wait to come to work each day and see what awaits us!  We also have been busy planning another ONLINE EVENT!  We will be having a "FALL" in to September Event!  It will be very similar to our Christmas in July Event - except FALL themed!  Be sure to mark your calendar as many things sold out quickly last round!  It will be held the same time as our WOOLSTOCK Event!  So for those of you who are not coming, this should brighten your day!  We don't want you to think we forgot about you!!!!!

How are  your Quilts-on-a-Stick designs coming along!?!?  We have seen a couple sneak peeks & have put more info, including the ENTRY FORM on our website homepage right on the left hand side for each of you to click and print it off!  We can't wait to start getting some in!  Don't forget… we have HEFTY prizes!  1st $250.00, 2nd $200.00 & 3rd $150.00 in Buttermilk Basin Gift Certificates to use online or at the shop!  Plus - we have SEW much NEW GOOD coming in, including more trays, seasonal décor, gourd candy dishes, hand dyed velvet, fall bundles and lots & lots of more good stuff that we all love!!!!


On the home front, if I thought it was busy at the shop… the girls are sure keeping me on my toes!  Grace & Hannah have started their fall activities, took their school pics/orientation, and are finished with school shopping!  We are still trying to find time to get Hannah's grad pics done!  Hannah continues to check out colleges…  she is going to check out Iowa State next week!  She just finished her behind the wheel, so up next is test time!  Meanwhile, we are getting some work done on the house {it is a HOT mess right now!}!!!  LOL!  Can anyone else relate to the chaos!!!???  Believe me… our lives are not "Instagram" perfect like you see from many on there!!!  I look at those pics and wonder how some people do it!  I am just happy if the dishes get done and the pets get fed!!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!

Yesterday kicked off the MN State Fair!  First time in years I did not make it there… I was too busy cutting kits!  However, we are going to meet my SIL, drop off kits with her to package & then we will be heading to the fair!  I can't wait!  It is my FAV time of year!!!!

Love the fall truck fabric - Too hot to even handle wool here in Atlanta - can't wait to get cooler weather so I can start one of your wool kits!

Thanks so much for the truck design - I really LOVE the truck fabric. But I love that new snowman block, too.

I love all the truck designs!
I highly recommend Iowa State. One of my sons graduated from Iowa State and even though one of my sons and one of my daughters graduated from the University of Iowa, I am a big Iowa State fan. I have a grand-daughter who just began her college career at Iowa State this fall. Good luck to Hannah in her college search. It's an exciting time for her, but not as exciting as next fall will be.
