good afternoon! i can definitely feel the late afternoon chill as the sun starts its final descend and the street lights start turning on. It was blowy and snowy here this morning…which does make for a cozy day in the quilt shoppe. A little machine quilting, shipping, binding up a late-in-the-season Christmas quilt…that i just love and will talk about tomorrow…which if you remember our Melany Square quilt featuring Rhubarb and Ginger by 3 sisters (yes…i’m talking literally 14 years ago) then you have an idea of the pattern. More on that tomorrow…
today i want to talk about Sarah’s Story by Betsy Chutchian. Ms. Chutchian is one of my favorite designers…her palette, her prints, her books…um…lovely!
This collection features this most amazing wiggly stripe…perfect for the dividing bar of a column quilt, borders, a fun binding…a gorgeous backing…or i’m thinking some stupendous fussy cutting. i couldn’t resist it so i nabbed a bolt of each color of that divine wavy stripe….a total of 20ish bolts i think…some of each color…lots of that print. we have fq and f8 bundles as well…to help round out your civil war stash.
i even broke up shelbyville and now Sarah’s Story sits front and center…
Quilts for all Seasons is the perfect companion to this collection…especially when mixed with her previous ranges…lots of rich colors and patterns…
nab your Sarah’s Story precuts and yardage…here.
grab a copy of Quilts for all Seasons…here.
ALSO…Memoirs shipped today…i don’t have any pictures obviously…but we have lots of precuts and yardage arrving…i’d love a little Memoirs under the tree this year…get your order in now so when it arrives we can unpack it and pack it right up for you! check out our precuts and yardage here.
have a wonderful evening! it’s just about time to head home for a little coffee, cozy quilt, and embroidery.
