Flower Power - A New Book from Mary Lou!!

Would you like to do your own fabulous Flower quilt with simple piecing techniques that are fun and you won't need a quarter inch foot to do it? Flower Power contains 32 pages of flowers of every description, butterflies, dragonflies, hats with flowers, frogs, friendly worms, robins, birds flying and sitting and even a birdbath to sit amoung the flowers. This technique is suitable for beginners, children, the advanced quilter and anyone wanting to create colorful, fun and beautiful quilts in a simpler way that doesn't look simple.

Grandma's House Fabric

1551-12 (10K) 1552-60 (10K)

Grandma’s House is my new wonderful (not kidding) fabric line. It features all kinds of fun things that Grandmothers will love. Gorgeous colors of turquoise, cheddar, black, raspberry, awesome green, butter yellow etc. Please tell your local quilt shop you would like “Grandmother’s House and Bee Happy” from Benartex, by Mary Lou Weidman.

I plan to do some Hoochy quilts and also baby quilts out of these lines. I think that I can show you simple is wonderful and FUN is the way to go. As Grandma used to say “let a SMILE be your umbrella” and ain’t it the truth. If I could be serious or happy, I wanna be happy. Colorful, whimsical quilts provide happiness to many people and KIDS get it. They love to laugh and be happy and wouldn’t you like to be with adults that think that is great? It’s healthier too!

Grandma's House Pastels

1550-36 (10K) 1555-28 (10K)  

Mary Lou's soft Grandma's House pastels (Benartex) are available now. Please ask for them in your local shops as they make fabulous bedroom quilts and baby quilts. Shades of pinks, greens, yellows (soft) and my favorite soft aquas make for a beautiful mix for quilts people and babies will LOVE. We offer the pastel pink alphabet to put your favorite baby's name or Grandma saying for a nice gift for someone you love. Make a quilt for a good friend who is a new Grandma.

Bee Happy and Pastel Bee Happy

My other current fabric lines are Bee Happy and Pastel Bee Happy. I hope you will ask your local quilt shop for these fabrics that have running quilters and animals and cute quilt sayings on dramatic color. I think the dots and stripes in this line are some of the best I have ever done. There is a wonderful embroidery cd offered for most machines out of these designs called “THE QUILT SALE”. If you are thinking of Artists Trading Cards, these are excellent images to use and embellish for friends.


Stay tuned for flannels in Mary Lou’s older Cheery Jubilee line. They are new and sure to be great to create with as they are colorful and pretty for young at heart warm quilts.
