As I'm sure you've heard, Free Spirit will close in May of 2018. Very Sad News. I'm sure all the great designers will continue to design fabric under other companies. At least I hope. I'm sharing Philip Jacobs post of his Spring 2018 releases which we did preorder and as of now are scheduled to receive. Love this stuff

Check out the patchwork design on his shirt. Love it

Yep: the quilt is fashion now.

Quilted folks gear is extremely in.

I've purchased several items from Judi and have been very pleased! One was a kit - the fabrics were perfectly cut and the kit shipped quickly, complete with pattern. Her prices are excellent too!

Having access to such great fabric - thank you, Judi! Your fabrics are fun and so are you!!!!!!!

We are still getting ready for the Mid Atlantic Quilt Show in Hampton, VA but I really needed to take a minute to show off these new arrivals from Studio 37 - division of Marcus Bros as they are being packed to go along with us to the show. These are Fade Out designed by Laura Berringer. Just too cool.

Another great line from Dear Stella - Pier Pressure! Stella is offering a free pattern called Picture Perfect II which finishes at 54 x 56" Love all the colors in this line along with the whales, sharks, seahorses, swimmers and ships - plus lots more. Give me a shout if you have to have some

Life's a Beach from Dear Stella just arrived which is making me think of warmer weather!! This is a fun line and Stella has developed a free pattern called Meadow II. The pattern provides instructions to make a quilt that finishes at 58" x 77". Need a kit or bundle, just give me a shout.

Very early stages of a new shop sample that we will be kitting. Sashing needs to be added. We are using Cold Comfort from Dear Stella! Stay tuned!

Night Music from Free Spirit has arrived. This is Amy Butler's newest line. Great color and so many possibilities. We have also ordered wide backs from this line. Box arrived but I haven't unpacked it yet. I'll post those soon.

I really needed to start unpacking boxes. Here is the first - Reverie from Timeless Treasure designed by Chong-A Hwang. For those of you who know me, you know I am a sucker for anything bright on a black background. Just love the florals in purples, sun yellow and blues. Gorgeous. This line includes a panel that is 23.5" X WOF.

Show and tell. Sherry Paylor made this adorable quilt as a Christmas gift. I love that she opted for a gray background fabric which really compliments all the Hearts in this quilt. The pattern is Best Loved Memories from Aqua Paisley Studio. Great job Sherry
