hello! it looks to have stopped snowing for the moment…at least i don’t have to shovel in flip flops…
jardin de fleurs…a garden-inspired collection by French General…it has all the elements of French General. Lots of flowers, rambling roses, sweet posies, stripes and the coolest large print that features some cozy little buildings (that i would love to live in!). The palette for this collection is classic…rouge, roche, pearl are the classics…they’ve added saffron back into the mix along with a dusty ciel blue. honestly…i’m loving the saffron and the blue. that saffron is just the nicest yellow. not too mustard-y but not too sunshine-y either.
my favorite print…can i move in to that quirky little 2 story with attic? it is probably the coolest print i’ve seen in a long time!
you can grab some jardin de fleurs here. still waiting on precuts but i’m thinking i might be putting together some bundles…we’ll see.
happy weekend! it is nearing the end of our saturday and i’ve been busily getting things put online for you.
our sophie yardage has arrived…it is so pretty…perfectly spring fresh and i cannot wait to see what mom comes up with. we have been perusing our pattern collection for something just right.
our sophie precuts have not arrived yet…so we are patiently waiting on those but until they become available…we’ve put together some fat quarter color bundles…incase you are lacking a specific brenda riddle color.
we’ve put together sophie colors…linen, rosey red, blossom, sprout, and cobblestone and dover colors grey, mist and sea glass, willow, and linen.
each bundle has 5 fat quarters with the exception of the Sophie Linen bundle with 6 fat quarters.
all are available now…in store or online.
you can check out sophie, dover, and all of our Brenda Riddle collections including bundles, precuts, yardage, kits, and patterns…here.
just a few more things to finish up before we are done for the weekend…like find a place for the new French General collection Jardin de Fleurs which arrived yesterday…all 30+ bolts…so be prepared for a little rearranging. i’ll be working on getting those online this weekend/Mondayish.
Delightful Dozen…12 low volume civil war shirting repos…designed by Sheryl Johnson. Lovely little prints on a soft white background. Perfect prints for adding to your shirting collection, mixing with 30’s repos for a very vintage vibe or pair with a bleached muslin for a neutral, low volume quilt.
we are headed out the door in a couple minutes…but i thought i would pop in and give you a peak at a couple Brenda Riddle quilt projects that i have *finally* gotten online.
Bliss…features Bramble Cottage…mom designed this using a mixture of florals about 10 years ago and when we saw Bramble Cottage we knew it would make a wonderful Bliss. Who doesn’t love wandering florals, dots, and big plaids?
look at that sweet little piping…scrummy!
and Cozy Cottage…
i love the subtle palette of this collection. Dover reminds me of the ocean, the salty breeze, the grey skies, and soft sand.
cozy cottage features the loveliest log cabin blocks and the prettiest crocheted edge.
well…that wraps it up for today…also…Sophie, Brenda Riddle’s next collection, should arrive on Monday! Can’t wait to add to this collection of projects.
if you’d like either a kit of Bliss or Cozy Cottage…you can find all our kits…here.
happy easter…hopefully you will find a minute or 2 for some summer stitching!
good morning! the day is just getting started around here. Music is playing, wind chiming giving the feel of summer on the porch, and some cozy seating and cozier quilts.
we’ve gotten our Flapjacks project completed and kitted and up an it is scrumptious…it will be added to our personal collection when we no longer have kits/fabrics left. However, we are not to that point yet. we still have all the yardage we ordered and bundles and kits.
look at those yummy colors…flapjacks is available here.
don’t forget…the new Simply Vintage has dropped and it doesn’t disappoint! lots of fun spring/summer projects to keep you busy!
we love tiny hexies, tiny embroidery, tiny bits of fabric.
we’ve just gotten in the tiny treasures and the 101 itty bitty celebrations books and, WOW!
the tiny embroidery that fits on a 1 inch hexie…pretty sure i’m gonna have to stitch one of those…since 1 inch hexies are my FAVORITE! i can see it in a pastel palette, with the pretties DMC threads and maybe scrappy Brenda Riddle…maybe some Liberty…hmm…
i don’t work much with wool…but i think these itty bitties are super sweet! You can literally put them anywhere!
roselyn precuts have arrived! and man, she is worth the wait! lovely shades of red, beige, white, and pink. a perfect companion to Miss Scarlet and Farmhouse Reds. this Minick and Simpson collection is the perfect mix of red and white and pink.
also…i’ve put together some corey yoder sugarcreek and apricot and ash bundles…so we have a handful of Yoder’s Dry Goods bundles available. i just love the low volumes with the pops of yellow and blue. perfect for spring/summer stitching!
