good morning! spring has arrived…finally after a long, snowy winter. a little rain looks to be on the way…definitely spring!
today i thought i would introduce our newest Tilda project.
Boardwalk…measures a wonderful 75 x 81 inches. Lovely for the couch, a quilt ladder, or your favorite wicker chair in the sunroom. We’ve mixed the lovely Hometown and My Neighborhood collections with a little Windy Days…then to soften and lighten it we added in some Teal Tea Towel Basics. It is lovely. The teal really makes the prints pop.
We did diamond quilting on it so it has a crosshatch feel to it…i’m in love! we have kits available here. Keep in mind that this is a Sweetwater exclusive kit.
***Also…keep in mind that the next Tilda collection releases June 1st and images release April 15th. We are planning to have a small project finished up and be ready to take orders for kits…more on that later.***
good afternoon! we wish you were here to see this collection in person.
Wish You Were Here by Whistler Studios is a lovely and fresh collection of roses, ginghams, dots, and stripes. A pretty palette of pink, teal, cream, and green make this perfect for some Easter baskets, springtime pillows, or even a couch throw or table runner.
the prints are perfect for mixing with other pastels for a Stonefields, soft and sweet Grandmother’s flower garden, or scrappy stars.
check out Wish Your Were Here yardage and precuts…here.
looks like there is more snow on the way…so if you are out and about…stay safe.
good morning! hopefully you are having a wonderful wednesday. i am spending the day working on my 7 petal Chrysanthemums featuring tilda fabrics.
anyways…today is the day…Tilda’s newest project featuring her lovely solids is now available. Introducing…
Flower Vase Embroidery Quilt
“This gorgeous quilt is on a similar theme to our popular Embroidery Flower Quilt, as it uses needlepoint as the inspiration. The quilt is also a wonderfully creative way of showcasing our beautiful solid fabrics. The design is made up of just squares in a single size, so there’s lots of easy cutting. The piecing is straight forward and will give you plenty of practice at seam matching. The sky teal background is also pieced as individual squares rather then strips, to continue the appearance of an embroidery. We’ve also made a pieced backing for for the and instructions are given for making this if you choose this option.”
if you’ve seen our tilda collection…you know we have ALL the basics (along with collections) including all the solids…so we can kit this up for you. i will not be cutting kits to have on the floor right now…but if you are planning on popping in and would like one…please drop me an email sweetwatercottonshoppe(@)yahoo(.)com and i can have it ready for you.
Kit price is: $165.00 (this doesn’t include tax or shipping)
*43 Tilda solids
*Sky Teal background
*Sky Teal binding
*Fabrics will be labeled with Tilda solid color

Flower Vase Embroidery pattern can be downloaded and printed on tilda’s world…here.
good afternoon! hopefully you had a wonderful weekend. i spent yesterday trying to finish piecing my 7 petal Chrysanthemums…i DID, so now i just have to appliqué them down…all 100 of them…plus i’m stitching up a companion pillow out of the new tilda collection and blenders that release June 1st. cannot wait to debut the project when the catalogue goes live on April 15th. Anyways…once i have a few chrysanthemums stitched up i’ll take some pictures and put together a little more info.
anyways…i’m sure you came to sneak a peak at the new shirtings that have arrived. Sacramento by Whistler Studios…
“Little novelty low-volume prints for the win! Dainty flowers, tossed snips, crowing roosters, subtle geometrics and climbing vines make the perfect scrappy background. Sacramento will add depth and interest to your next quilting adventure.” -whistler studios
we ordered in just a couple bundles…but we have yardage of several. you can find the bundles here and prints here.
also…if you are looking to add to your yarn stash…we have TOO MUCH yarn and need to make space for some new fabric. Grab a Box O’YARN here.
we are out the door for the day…have a great evening!
good afternoon! first off…Happy (belated) Valentine’s day!
i would take a new bundle over flowers any day…however, i do love a good wildflower bouquet and those day-old roses when the petals start falling off…lovely!
i spent the day with Gabby-Goo….since tuesday was mom’s day off…mom spent the day watching Golden Girls and puttering around the sewing room…the window was cracked and some stitching happened along with maybe a little tidying and organizing.
i thought i would drop in today and introduce a new collection…
Brenda Riddle’s newest collection, Sweet Liberty has arrived. Faded hues of chambray, rose, blush, natural linen, and classic white mix wonderfully to provide a more pastel patriotic collection. The prints are bursting with springtime feels…sprawling florals, small medallions, checks, and the most wonderful pillow ticking stripe. A perfect collection for a soft and sweet 4th of July picnic quilt, a table runner, tote bag, or bed-size quilt.

a perfect project for spring and summer…the size 55 x 67 inches makes it a wonderful backdrop to a sweet bunny for Easter, a pot of bulbs for spring, then toss over your favorite chair for summer.
good morning! i thought i better pop in and give everyone an update.
Tilda’s Pie in the Sky and Cloudpie has landed! we have all 28 prints along with precuts, buttons, and coordinating basics…
we had some advance fabrics, so i stitched up these big hexies.
introducing…Avalon…a magical mix of big hexies, Tilda fabrics, and Aubergine. A cozy quick (in terms of EPP it took a week to stitch it up) stitch that measures about 60 inches square. The super-sized hexies are perfect for showcasing wonderful Tilda prints…the outer edge of hexagons and pentagons are perfect for your favorite solid…
you can grab an Avalon kit here…kit includes: Pie in the Sky, Cloudpie, Hometown, and Aubergine prints, Avalon pattern and papers…if you’d like acrylics…grab the 2nd option.
now back to a little shop rearrange for Valentine’s Day.
good morning! i couldn’t wait until next week to introduce you to Songbird Serenade…our newest collection from Sheri McCulley for Poppie Cotton.
a lovely combination of springtime birds and flowers paired with a soft and subtle palette of blue, green, yellow, and pink. Reminiscent of the first flowers of spring, the buds on the trees, and the chirping birds. This collection is perfect for spring/Easter decorating…whip up a throw quilt, table runner, wall hanging or bed quilt for the spare room.
check out Songbird Serenade here. we are working on a project featuring this collection and the coordinating panel…so be on the lookout for that…i’m thinking it will be showcased on the bed in the window for Easter. We’ll see…things change pretty quick around here.
