Lucy Boston Sample and New Reproduction Fabrics

One of our 2T regulars, Evelyn, has loaned another quilt to enhance our shop displays!  We appreciate her amazing workmanship and productivity and generosity in sharing her results with us!  

This EPP project - based on the original Lucy Boston quilt - is all about the fabric!  We love all the different combination of reproduction fabrics, the varying color coordinations are beautiful and each block is unique and special. A closer look at the quilt itself shows Evelyn spent lots of time fussy cutting. We're excited to have this quilt on display, come take a look! Get some inspiration for your next project, perhaps? 

Also new to our reproduction room....more fabric! We have the brand new County Clare collection designed by Karen Styles.  This line includes the gorgeous focal panel (1.25 yards, each block is 8.5 inches).  This is going to be showcased in lots of projects and we can't wait for Karen's upcoming Quiltmania book.  Now is the time to embrace some broderie perse applique I'm thinking!   

We've also added the Moire collection by Di-Ford for Andover which are some wonderful textural solids that would be a fabulous addition to any stash, but these colors are made for combining with reproduction fabrics and we haven't seen anything quite like them...
