Any questions, Please contact Melissa 660-747-7787  or email

**This is total a hand stitching project, no sewing machines will be used……Are you new to this ? Read below for more info

English Paper Piecing 

English Paper Piecing, the creation of a quilt block or entire quilt using fabric wrapped and basted around paper pieces or shapes. Since fabric is "wrapped" around the paper cut to the exact size, precision in piecing is  very accurate. Once pieces are basted, then they are simply whip stitched together. The technique works well with traditional or modern fabrics, giving all quilters a useful technique for hand piecing.

No specialty items are required to use this hand piecing technique. Fabric scraps or pieces, needle, thread, and simple paper patterns are all of the materials that are needed.

English paper piecing is a quilting technique that has been used for many years. The growth of its popularity in recent years might be attributed to several things: you can achieve great precision using the technique, Plus this is so handy because it is portable, allowing you to take all of your supplies in a small container to work on nearly anywhere; and the process of handwork can be a very relaxing pastime.

Shop closed for 1 day Thursday April 10th

Primitive Stitches Quilt Shop- will be closed on Thursday the 10th.

My aunt is having surgery in KC, and I will be there at the hospital with her and my mom during this time.

I plan on being back in the shop on Fri. and Sat.


At Last Shop Phone is getting installed !!!!

FINIALLY --- They are here to dig and trench a phone line to set up my land line phone for my new shop location. I have only had the shop open for about 2 months,without  a phone.

 Since there are not over head lines out here, they have to trench and bury the line about 600 feet to the shop and since there has either been  frozen ground or ice, or rain/flood and mud, I was beginning to wonder...

 I hope my customers, did not think I just closed up shop and left town, lol . Thanks everyone for being so understanding.

 Let's hope today is the day it gets done !
