Introducing: TRELLIS

So today I thought I would start introducing the new patterns to you. First I want to mention that we will be doing PRE ORDER KITS for several of these patterns, as we always do with any new release. But first we will introduce all the info here so you all can make your decisions at home! TRELLIS The pattern has been done with a soft white background, a soft grey background and also shown at the end with charcoal cross weave. They all sing so beautifully in my opinion. In this first photo, you can also see the table runner version on the lefthand side- made with just one charm pack.                       INFORMATION ABOUT THE PATTERN Name: TRELLIS Size: 74″ x 74. or 15″ x 85″ if you would like to make the table runner instead…

LITTLE BOX OF FIGS: BOX 2

So hopefully by now most of you have received and are already enjoying our LITTLE BOX OF FIGS: The Fall Edition. Thank you to all of you how have let us know how much you are loving the "ingredients" of this second box! We are so very glad! I know that many of you missed out on this annual subscription and are wondering if you have any chance of jumping in on the fun. ORDERING UPDATES So here is the scoop…. we do not have any more official spots for this year [although every once in a while we do have an opening due to illness or emergency and we then contact the next person on the wait list from March]. Since there is a fabric based project in each of our boxes, we are limited by the amount of fabric that we have pre-ordered for each…

Welcome Chestnut Street

I know we have been "sneak peeking" our brand new patterns for a while now and showing you snippets of fabric here and there. Hope you have enjoyed all the new goodies [hint… we are actually not quite done showing you some new yummies!   Today our bags are getting packed and we are off to Salt Lake for the biannual Quilt Market Extravaganza known as Quilt Market. So it felt like a good day to officially introduce you to our newest fabric collection, Chestnut Street. Fabric is due out in stores in September, 2016.   The fabric collection ships worldwide in September, so be sure to ask… and yes, pester… your local quilt shop to see if they are planning on carrying it!  We love the retro feel of this group and fee like it is a great "sister" group to our wildly…

Introducing… Granny Style

 I have always wanted to work on a granny square quilt but some never got up the umph needed to make all those little strip set. So when I saw this vintage quilt with a block that such great unique feel and movement and yet felt to me in the style of all of those great granny square quilts, I jumped on the chance. Chestnut Street seemed like the perfect retro feeling collection for it!   … the quilt is almost entirely out of Chestnut street with a few other fabrics thrown in when I ran out of good combinations that I liked!      … the pattern cover PATTERN INFO NAME:  Granny Style. Sample pieced by Sherri McConnell FABRIC: Made from our upcoming Chestnut Street Fabric [fabric available September 2016] and 2 older fabrics thrown in for a bit of added variety. Fat 1/8 yds. or…

Introducing…. MIDNIGHT

Its that time everyone… every market season we introduce all of our new patterns to you here, one at a time throughout the week or weeks leading up to Market.  This is our first official reveal.   A quilt I have wanted to make forever and something that I am so happy is now in my personal collection. As most of you already know, I am a little bit obsessed with the MODA Black Crossweave fabric and have been adding it to things for a while now. I might or might not be hoarding full bolts for personal use. Just maybe! For those of you who are doing our RETRO WOOL BOM, this is the same fabric. Its just a little bit perfect for this quilt. I think. Next up on my list of must do… the cream version. But that will most definitely have to wait until…

Recaps and Answers and New Stuff Oh My…

So this is how it goes around here… We prep for Market. We make ourselves a bit nuts in the process [read all about that from my darling husband Eric in a previous post :-)]. We don't sleep. We eat nonsense. We wonder if there is any way that it is all going to get done. But it does get done. Usually. More or less. Well… the lawn might be brown and the and my hair most definitely needs a bit of color, but more or less is about right. I guess it all depends on what the less is… We go to Market and always enjoy being with our industry friends and colleagues, talking to customers and presenting our newest products. Always. We usually have much more fun than we expect.   Thank goodness that most of live by the rule of what happens at Market…
