New Fabric and Versatile Batiks

We have used this straight forward, quick to piece pattern by Villa Rosa designs more than a few times, and each time it looks like a new quilt!  This one features some dark navy and plum tones that appear darker in the photo and are more vibrant in person.  It makes a perfect throw size quilt and we are happy to help select a custom mix of colors if you have a specific someone on your list! 

Intrigue Quilt 

We are always sprinkling in a few fabulous batiks that would make great centerpieces to build a project around.  These are just a few of our latest additions, shown below.  

New Batik
These glorious florals work well in combinations, highlighted with a few subdued prints and solids or featured solo for a summer tote bag.  It's hard to choose a favorite!

Something Blue by Laundry Basket Quilts

Paris Postcards for Timeless Treasures
This elephant print is back in stock, but disappearing quickly!  

Caravan Elephant
Our latest addition to the reproduction fabric collection from Windham fabrics features a unique combination of clear and crisp charcoal greys with pink to rose red.  A nice mix of motifs and scale change this will work in well for a scrappy quilt or featured in a lightweight summer throw.

What to make next?

The list of just what to make next is getting longer, not about for you?  We just received a few new, perfect for wearables, substrates to add to our growing collection.  The black and white/cream Kokka fabrics are super light weight in sateen and lawn - a simple shirt for this hot weather seems like a good idea!  The solids are the brussels washer linen, a blend of linen and rayon that is drapey and soft after washing.  Great for cool pants and dresses.

Of course the rayon fabrics would look amazing in the Charlie pattern, shown below....

And once the weather cools - this jacket in the Outback Wife bark cloth is going to be a staple item.  This pattern is a pdf download that was fun to stitch up - it is the Sapporo Coat from Paper Cut Patterns.

We think this little knit sleeper would be pretty comfy - maybe it wouldn't be so cute in adult size, but we're tempted!  Pajama/lounge pants in these soft knits or in the rayon prints would be pretty awesome too. You can find the free pattern for this newborn sleeper from stitched-together - we've linked it on our pinterest board Just follow This Link

Knit Newborn Sleeper

This Range Backpack is heading off to school this fall with someone special - don't think she'll have to worry about finding her bag in amongst all the boring solid color bags out there!  The Noodlehead patterns have great instructions and diagrams - great references for all the hardware and they are rewarding to put together.  I used some of the navy blue cork on the base of this bag for some added durability and texture.

Hope your summer days include something fun to sew!

2T Did You Know?

Did you know that you can bring your empty bottle of Best Press in for a refill?   It's true and it's a savings!   Refilling a 16.9 oz bottle is $3 less than a new one and you can help the environment by keeping another bottle out of the landfill!

Did you know that you can turn any fabric into a laminated vinyl?  We have a few different products by Pellon and Heat-n-Bond that very simply iron on to any cotton fabric.  Presto!  Laminated, wipeable and protected.  We used the Pellon Vinyl Fuse in the lining of this fun pencil pouch from Noodlehead who offers the pattern as a free tutorial.
