48 New bolts of fabric...Hooray

Yes!  We received a big shipment yesterday and we are uploading as fast as we can manage.  Chevrons are here and ready to ship.   These are perfect additions to your quilt stash.  We are all ready mixing them with some of our existing bundles!  So fun!

Before I post some of our other new fabric lines, I wanted to share with you some creative projects from one our customers, Pascale Racette.  Check this tent out!  Lucky kids!  Well I assume it is for her children or grandchildren.  These fabrics were from Riley Blake Design's Pirate Collection
 And here is a close up of the flag.  I have a son who loved pirates and he would have LIVED in this tent.
 This quilt was made with Ten Little Things Charm Packs.  You could use several of these fabrics in an I Spy quilt.
These turned out wonderful.  Thank you Pascale for sharing them with us.  Awesome!  Please keep your projects coming.  We love to see what you are doing.

Spring Snowballs and Hearts? Yes! with more Zoologies....

Yes, that is correct.  We love our customer sharing days!  Send us your pictures.
 Elizabeth Strong is early for next Valentine's Day  ;).  She used the Always & Forever fabrics to create this bright, fun, and beautiful table setting of place-mats and table runner.  Elizabeth - we love your colors and especially the large hearts and pieced borders.  Place-mats are so handy. My family would love these!  Thanks Elizabeth for sharing.  And congrats on being early for next year....the rest of us are way behind you!  Time to finish those holiday UFO's.

 Urban Zoologies need to be buried in somebodies time capsule.  They are always popping up in cute projects.  Brittany Wheeler created these Boutique Diaper Wipe Cases.  So adorable! We love the trim around the edge. You can find these for sale at Crafty Mom Boutique on Etsy.  Click Here for link

So, Leisha and I were talking about creating fun blocks out of basic blocks.  This is the snowball block.  Essentially you sew a smaller square to each of a larger square's corners creating an octagon shape.  You see this block in several quilts.  We were talking about how if you join them together you could make a flower.....Walaaaa...and Leisha did.  Notice that the center square is different than the background fabric and that forms the center of the flower.  Leisha used her red, pink, and green scraps left over from another quilt.  She only had to buy butterfly fabric for the backing.  Smart girl!  This would be a great stash buster!
Of course I am giving you close ups so that you can see her beautiful quilting.    See how there are 4 snowballs to each flower?

I chose to make a star flower using a similar method.  Here is the link to the pattern for purchase:  Click Here for Pattern

Below is a better close up so that you can see the four squares together make the star flower.   I really like this line of fabrics.  I wanted to show off the animal toss print so I alternated the snow ball foursome with a plain block.
 I am including this photo which was taken before Leisha worked her quilting magic.  What a difference the quilting can make huh?  Thank you Leisha!  You made my quilt ten times better.
Below is the Emma Collection.  Such a sweet and cheerful collection.  I love all of these fabrics, but I have to say that Strudel Raspberry wins just because of the fun name.  Of course Strudel Mint (bottom) has to be a close second.

Happy Sewing this weekend!

Introducing Summerlove....perfect for skirts and dresses!

You will love the newest collection Summerlove.  Sandra has bundled them into two beautiful collections.  Teal and Pink. I think the Teal Bundle would be perfect for a strip skirt.  What do you think?  I love the goldenrod colors with the teals. 
Pictured above from top to bottom is Passionate Spirit in Peach, Oval Elements Vintage Blue, Daydreaming in Ocean, Malibu Sun, Sweet Days Mist, Tokens of Love in Aqua, and at the bottom is Passionate Spirit in Teal.
Pictured above is  Naivety Berry, FreeSpirit Yellow Houndstooth, Daydreaming in Sunshine, Oval Elements in Mist, Malibu Kiss, Beyond Bliss in Ginger, and last but not least is Retro Harmony.  
 We have sold several of theses bundles all ready! They won't last long.

Look at this cute dress Monique Thomas made. We love the fabrics she selected. The main dress print is from Art Gallery's Paradise Collection. It is called Morning Showers. The Art Gallery fabrics are a nice weave and they drape beautifully for dresses and skirts - much nicer than regular cotton quilting fabrics. Thanks for sharing this Monique!
