Bright and Cheery

Bright seems to be the theme of things these days at the shop- this collection from Michael Miller blends with coordinates in dots and stripes. Primary colors pop in these new arrivals. If you look closely, you'll see that some of the dot prints vary in color and size as you move across the width of the fabric. We have these funky dots in shades of blue, reddish pink, and a green and blue combination. You'll have to come see for yourself- could be the start of a bright new project or a perfect addition to an old one! We're working on a quilt and kits using these fabrics and our classic Feng Shui pattern-so watch for that soon!

It seems that sometimes, simple is best- at least, that seems to be the case with our chair quilt. This simple quilt uses only 4 fabrics, and yet no one can argue that it doesn't succeed in popping with color! The pattern comes from Cherry House Quilts, and our take on it was only one of a number of options- in other words, you could pick a favorite focal fabric (even a directional one will do) and a couple of coordinating solids, and have yourself this fab throw in no time!

For those of you on our mailing list, you've heard the news about the club that will be starting up soon at Two Thimbles. We've got a display board and some sample blocks up at the store, so come see for yourself what the fuss is all about! More information on the Clubhouse is available so stop by or give us a call- and for those of you not on our email list, please send us an email if you'd like to be added!

Happy Stitching!
