Amish With a Twist 2

Sarah did an amazing job piecing Nancy Rink's Amish With a Twist 2. I need to take a picture with her in it so you can see the scale; this beauty is well over 8 feet tall! 

It's hard to believe, but our Amish With a Twist 2 Block of the Month folks are halfway through the program. I thought that seeing the finished quilt might give you a little motivation! Make sure to see it in person next time you're at StitchCraft.

Here are a few close-ups of the quilting - masterfully done by Helia Ricci.

We're Looking Forward To....

New fabric will be FLYING in this summer!  I am so excited about many of the new fabric designs order for StitchCraft in the coming months.  There are new fabric designers, such as Carrie Bloomston of SUCH designs.  Her Collage line is reminiscent of cut and torn paper art, with vibrant colors and patterns.

The patterns and ideas that accompany this new line are great!

Heather Ross is a popular name in fabrics, especially whimsical ones.  Her new Briar Rose is precious - and typical of her style.  (Think bees, grasshoppers, frogs, strawberries and of course lovely colors.)

(and to those of you who asked if I ordered these lines, the answer is yes - all of it!)
