Zoologie Fun and What's new at Sisters & Quilters

Celeste of Southern Belle Designs shared with us her newest Zoologie quilt!  Isn't this so fun?  Click on the picture for a close up.  We love the way she alternated the light and the dark backgrounds creating a diagonal stripe.  The lime green border is perfect with all of those Zoologie prints.  Ann Kelle would be happy to see this - don't you think?  You can contact Celeste through her Etsy Shop:    Thank you Celeste for sharing!  We love it!

What's new this week at Sisters & Quilters?  Hooray! We have several new bundles in stock, including......

 Cosmo Crickets Circa 1934 by Moda.  We think these fabrics would make the perfect family room/entertainment room quilt with soft minky on the back.  Listen to these fabric names - Astaire, Ginger, Chaplin, Garbo, Davis, and Hayworth  - Yup, you guessed it 1030's Movie Stars.  My favorite is Astaire in Gold.

Funky Monkey by Erin Michael for Moda is definitely nostalgic and  reminds me of the holidays.  Maybe because I remember my Grandmother sewing Sock Monkeys for gifts.  Truly a favorite for many of us "older" quilters.

Delighted by The Quilted Fish for Riley Blake.  Amanda Herring of The Quilted Fish was featured earlier this week on our blog.  We also have the complete collection of Delighted in the 5" Stacker Bundles (charm packs).
Farm Fresh by October Afternoon for Riley Blake is another great seller.  We have just received another 9  5" Stackers (charm pack) - which we have sold out of twice.  We think this bundle would make darling tablecloths, aprons, place mats or table runners.  They would also be great borders for your quilts made from the Charm Packs.  We love the soft teal blue and brown together.

This new bundle is the Alphabet Soup Girl Collection by Zoe Pearn for Riley Blake.  We have almost sold out of our boys Alphabet Soup Collection and we loved it so much that we just recently purchased the girl's collection.  How fun are the red and green beads and the sweet little flower prints.  They are perfect for the little meowmonkeyladybugelephanowlbeeandgiraffe print.  We paired them with the Happier Green Floral also by Riley Blake.

Last but certainly not least is our Terrain Collection by Kate Spain for Moda.  Kate Spain's prints are always hot sellers and these fun bright foliage and floral prints are no exception.  I love them all but my favorite is the simple little blue and green leaf print.  Send us pictures of your projects with these Terrain fabrics - they sew up so beautifully.  We would love to see them together in a quilt.  We also have  Layer Cakes and a few Charm packs still available for sale.  Also, we have a Schibbles quilt pattern named "Spot" available that features these fabrics. You can make it with one or two charm packs. link:

If you have made any quilts or sewing projects with these fabrics, please send us your pictures.  We would love to feature you on our blog.  Have a wonderful weekend and I  hope it is warmer where you are - actually I 'm sure that it probably is!  We have just received our first snow here in mountains - (YES that four letter word!)  But that means....quilting time, hot cocoa, and maybe a 1930's movie.
