good afternoon! we are past the halfway point of May…man, the weeks are just flying by!
American Gathering fat quarter towers have arrived (FINALY!) after they were originally scheduled as a January delivery. hopefully, now things can get back on track…Right now that was our oldest order that we are waiting on. I think our last order from February has just shipped as well…can’t wait to welcome some Sophie precuts into the mix. So now we are waiting on a couple from March…so it goes… If you would like a tower you can grab one here.
i’ve also put in an autoship for ALL the quiltmania magazines…so we will also be on the list to receive Simply Moderne and Quiltmania, the Quilt Magazine, right along with the Simply Vintage that we already recieve.
We’ve never gotten the Quiltmania magazine before…and i saw a couple pictures from Carolyn Johnson’s home and i knew we needed to offer it. you can grab the quiltmania magazine here. i might forgo a little stitching tonight to flip through this lovely…
well, i’d best be off…have to do some rearranging to make a little more room.
This releases tomorrow so it is on the floor and looking right at home in our Tilda section.
ALSO…GOOD NEWS…American Gathering FAT QUARTER TOWERS will be IN STORE (yes they are on their way) on Monday! If you want one…keep an eye on the website for the listing or drop me an email with “American gathering fq” as the subject line.
Now…back to our Moda Mail…picking out our october/november collections.
Gypsophila…this fun mix and match project was inspired by a Pin on Pinterest which of course had no link. so we graphed out a pattern similar and pulled the Ruru prints and added in a couple orphan prints and reordered the primitive stripe…and there you have it. This quilt is a new favorite. A fun mixture of sizes and florals…reminds me of the opulent caravans that you see on the English countryside in those British murder mystery shows.
Gypsophila measures 70 x 80 inches and is available now. you can grab a kit here.
be sure to pop back tomorrow…
happy stitching! -april&mickey&gabby
ps…gardenlife has arrived so i’ll be spending the next 2 days getting it all ready for saturday
happy tuesday! today we have some good, good news!
Gardenlife by Tilda…the long awaited spring/summer 2021 collection is on its way! scheduled arrival is later this week with its worldwide release on Saturday! i will be getting the online listings set up and activate them on Friday with shipping starting on Monday.
if you cannot wait to get your fingers on this collection…and you live nearby…be sure to pop in on Saturday. it will be waiting…we also have buttons, bundles, and some of the basics…with more on order.
and now i’d like to introduce to you
Grace…featuring the Emporium collection, Tudor rolie polie and Bella Solid light pink. this quilt is scrumptious and elegant and playful and perfect. The pops of black remind of saddle shoes and poodle skirts yet the grey and pink really give it a modern feel.
Large courthouse steps blocks accented with a soft cotton candy pink…at about 86 inches square this project is perfect for beginners and advanced alike. (this picture does not do it justice…the quilt is so soft and gentle…something that i cannot convey in a photograph…plus the colors are right but not quite right.)
if you like pink…this is a quilt for you…mom and i have already decided that this one is going in our personal collection when we’ve sold out of the kits…
grace kits are available now and include the Emporium/Tudor Rolie Polie, Bella Baby Pink, and the Grace pattern. you can grab a kit here.
that makes 2 days in a row…new quilts…new blog posts…we’ll see if i can keep it up until i’m caught up on introducing new projects…
Prepare yourself…we have several new projects that have just come off the machine, been bound, washed, dried, and photographed. i’m hoping to bring a new quilt your way every day this week…we’ll see how well i do.
today i’m introducing…
Summer Breeze…a soft and soothing mixture of low volume, dusk, and raven fig tree prints with a warm white background. perfect for spare rooms, couch arms, quilt stacks, and porch relaxing. the colors are reminiscent of perennials beds…Shasta daisies, black-eyed susans, and garden gates.
i just love how that raven pops and the low volume prints are gorgeous and create such a soft quilt!
our full order of 30s Playtime 2020 by Chloe’s Closet has arrived…along with precuts! Now you can get to work on your summery repo quilt…
this collection is perfect for a grandmother’s flower garden, Dresden plate, double wedding ring, or sweet little stars.
i’m loving the variety of colors in this bundle…love the pink, lavender and green…some low volume, a couple nursery prints, and that navy…thinking i might be doing some smaller color bundles with some coordinating solids…all in good time!
grab some 30’s playtime here…we have a few prints from the 2018 collection bundled up as well.
i’m sure you know but i thought i would remind you…
we have a selection of ribbons…hand-dyed, silk, 3.5mm and 7mm, and divided into sets.
we’ve also expanded our kits which come with the best directions…
i’ve added this to my list of someday projects…this kit comes with everything (short of an iron)…includes ribbon, all the interfacing, pins, needles, threads, sequins, beads, and clear, full color instructions…glorious!
this is my first foray into ribbon embroidery…i did it over Easter weekend a couple years ago and had never done anything quite like it. I found it to be quite fun and different than the basic needle and thread.
be sure to pop over to our ribbon.embroidery section (here) and take a look…lots of beginner friendly kits…
introducing hopewell by Jo Morton…glorious prints in shades of pink, brown, blue, red, tan, and cream. wonderful companion prints to mix in with your civil war or start from scratch with a wonderful bundle…(i’ve already squirreled one away to add to my every growing civil war collection.)
you can grab a hopewell bundle here…available as fat quarters and fat 8ths…
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.
