The FRUIT COCKTAIL collection has arrived! Inspired by vintage fruit flour sack fabrics, canning labels, and orchard crates…it’s a medley of summer goodness! The colors range from the classic Fig Tree navies and cornflower blues all the way to ivories and soft yellows. Do you have a favorite color grouping? Let me know in the comments section!

I’ve introduced you to the FRUIT SALAD book (available to purchase HERE) in my last blog post, which features – you guessed it – FRUITS! We have been keeping busy cutting pre-order fabric bundles and fruit kits at the shop.

P.S. We are doing a fun sew along with the book in our Facebook Group (join HERE) starting April 7th! We’d love to have you join us!

But there are a few OTHER fun surprises that go along with this collection that deserve a special spot on the blog – starting with a new precut-friendly basket quilt pattern, titled FRUIT BASKET.

The FRUIT BASKET pattern uses a single layer cake and simple construction techniques. It is retro, summer, picnic, perfection – if there is such a thing! It finishes at 69.5″ x 74.5″ and has stars within several of the baskets for added fun! Available for purchase HERE.

For those of you who have followed along with me for a while, you will notice this has a similar look to a charm pack-friendly wall hanging pattern I released with my STITCHED collection, called A TISKET – A TASKET (which is available HERE). And yes – this is basically the larger, companion version! Here’s a cute mock-up of A TISKET – A TASKET in FRUIT COCKTAIL prints!

Next up: new FRUIT COCKTAIL ENAMEL PINS! Adorn yourself, your bags, your bulletin boards and a hundred other places with these adorable vintage-inspired enamel pins! Each pin is app 1 ½” in size and comes with a clasp backing that can be used as a pin or removed and it can be used as a tack/bulletin board pin, as well. Featuring: RETRO CHERRIES, PEAR ORCHARD, TART LEMONS, or BLUEBERRY BRANCH! You can buy them singularly, or as a set HERE.

We have a few other fun surprises up our sleeves to celebrate the FRUIT COCKTAIL collection, so stay tuned in to our shop. Until then, happy quilting!
