salem and jack

good afternoon!

we hope you had a wonderful weekend…it rained here…FINALLY, it was the perfect father’s day present for dad. it was also gabby’s birthday…she turned 2! as you can tell…she had a long day…playing in the rain, going for a car ride, then more playing.

gabby-goo turned 2!

now…on to fabric goodness… Kitty Corn as arrived and it is one of the cutest collections! the colors are lovely…definitely more our palette…black, soft almost lavender, peachy-coral, soft yellow, and soft teal. A retro yet updated Halloween vibe…complete with an adorable Kitty (which we’ve named after our barn kitty, Salem). Mom is cutting up the Moda boxed kit right this minute and then will set to work on the 9-patches…i am so excited to see this project come together.

kitty corn

Kitty Corn was designed by Urban Chiks who is the designer behind, Swell and Sweet and Deer Christmas…i am so glad she has branched out into Halloween…it was a welcomed change! I love seeing her updated retro vibe for the holidays!

you can grab some Kitty Corn here. we have the full collection in yardage along with ALL the precuts.

arriving later this week…The Deco Dance collection of Liberty Quilting Cottons (soft and sweet pastels…i can hardly wait) and the remainder of our Sweet Beginnings collection.

well…i’d best get back to the cutting table.

good afternoon! we are past the halfway point of May…man, the weeks are just flying by!

good news!

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.

american gathering

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.

quiltmania

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.

happy stitching!

summer breeze

good afternoon!

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!

summer breeze

kits are available now…you can find them here.

happy stitching!

jardin de fleurs

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.

jardin de fleurs

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 stitching!

bliss and cozy cottage

happy easter!

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?

bliss

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

cozy cottage features the loveliest log cabin blocks and the prettiest crocheted edge.

cozy cottage 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!
