Time to Play Catch-Up

Finally catching our breath and catching up after the Quilt Tour...what fun! It sounded like many of you had a good time collecting patterns and charms, and we certainly had gorgeous driving weather for a few days, didn't we?
Now it's back to business as usual...and as usual, we've got new fun stuff to show off!

First, this line from Lotta Jansdotter, for Windham Fabrics, features mod designs and bold color choices. It'd be great in a quilt featuring big blocks- you may see one hanging in the shop one of these days, so stay tuned for inspiration! So many projects, so little time...

On a more subdued but just as striking note...this line is called Morris & Company, designed by Barbara Brackman for Moda. It features a William Morris style, and we have two colorways- one has bolder chocolate brown and rust mixed in, while the other is more blended in tones of green and blue. They would certainly play well together in a quilt, and we've put together a sample featuring the bolder colorway.

This is a new line from Andover, called IQSC-Delectable Mountains (short for International Quilt Study Center). There are some great reds, browns, and blues mixed in- the picture doesn't really do the colors justice, so you'll have to come see for yourself!

Remember ruffle fabric? We got some new prints in! One is a light pink with white polka dots, one is a yellow floral, and the third is a muted aqua. Too fun! We are still waiting on some super-cute samples, so pictured below are our previous colors, to give you an idea of what you can do with ruffle fabric. Scarves have been very popular, and are sooo easy to put together. We're thinking a little yellow floral spring skirt, or ruffle pants out of pink polka dot. Lots of ideas! You really have to see ruffle fabric in person to get an idea of how much fun it could be made up into something cute!

Here's hoping this rain will stop long enough for spring to begin- I think it's time, don't you? Spring always means bright colors and fun new projects...

Happy Stitching!
