What's new!

Of course - there's always new fabric...and occasionally we make progress on a few samples too...sometimes they have been on the cutting or sewing table for longer than others - if you know what I mean!

Here's a fun small throw size quilt in some contemporary batiks - we've got some kits made up or you can choose your own fabrics - it only takes 7!  This is one of the pattern cards from Villa Rosa "Smudge"....there's also another version of this quilt pattern - a smaller baby size quilt that would be great in some fun geometric prints for a new arrival!

We've also whipped up a spring scarf in floral lawn prints - this is a fun patchwork project using Judy Newman's "Sonia Scarf" pattern.  This fun cotton trim is included in our kits and we have a couple of color options too!  The kits are adequate for 2 scarves, so if you have deserving friend this might be just the spring wardrobe refresher you're looking for!   We had fun adding some extra embellishing stitches to this project too - a great excuse to play with fabric and thread!  We have also stocked Judy's "Dilly Bag" pattern - a fun bag to make and use all your favorite scraps and a chance for embellishing too!

Our shelves are stocked with a wide range of Grunge basics - we added some softer tones for spring and couldn't resist some bold additions as well.

Textures and neutrals are popular - and we're adding more toweling to our offerings along with these new Boro Foundation fabrics from Moda ...a great combination for mixing together with towelings and now we need to settle on which project for our next store sample from the new book by Janelle Kent of Pieces to Treasure.  We have enjoyed all of the individual patterns we've tried so far and have a few options on display in the shop.  These are great projects to make as gifts or treat yourself to something fun!
