Red and Cream and quilted allover!

Have you seen the latest treats from French General?  We stitched up this wall hanging, just in time to solve the riddle...what's red and cream and quilted all over?!

Petite Prints

Petite Wovens
Petite Charmpacks and Mini Charms

Pixelated Heart
This simple heart is from a Pattern designed by Blue Elephant Stitches and uses charm squares.  For our version we opted to go with smaller squares - a perfect mix of red and chocolate?

Lots and Lots of fabrics

We are busy moving things around, putting holiday fabric away and switching out our palette from red and green to more red and white!  We have lots of new fabrics starting to appear on the shelves and more new project ideas underway.

We have layer cakes and jelly rolls for this beautiful Laundry Basket group.  Pre-cuts are a great way to get more variety and a head start on a project you can whip up at your next sewing retreat!

Evergreen Curated Fat Quarters

Hmmm...pillowcases, aprons or just dreaming of summer?

Camping Theme prints

 All My Heart

 Ombre Dots

We love the variety of colors and motifs showing up in these contemporary collections - they make great wearables, tote bags as well as quilt.
