Many of you have come in to StitchCraft asking for more plaids - especially in brighter colors. There would be plaids that were part of a collection but we were lacking a collection - until now.
Andover has introduced Modern Plaids - yard dyed fabrics in a brighter, more modern palette. They can be mixed in with your favorite printed cottons or created into a rag quilt, as the homespun yarn dyed fabrics created the best fray on the exposed edges when cut and washed.
We received the most Florida-perfect collection of batiks from Timeless Treasures - turtles, crabs, whales and other iconic symbols of the coast. Some additional watery blenders rounded out these beautiful new fabrics. Check out the collection HERE!
Chickadee Window was one of the Block of the Month projects that we chose at Quilt Market in Houston last month. [Actually, it is a BORDER of the Month - doesn't that sound like fun?! Something different!] The Benartex fabrics in the quilt are simply stunning. The quilt was hanging in their booth and stopped me in my tracks.
Garden Tea Party was the other Block of the Month that called out to us at the market. It is a combination of piecing and appliqué (fused and machined or hand stitched). The details, such as a needle and spool on a teapot handle, are too adorable to resist.
Both Blocks of the Month will be start in mid to late Spring 2015 (at this writing, according to the fabric companies from which I ordered the fabric.) If you would like to be on the participant list, please give us a call or email. Pricing and sign ups will be available soon.
