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
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.
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
Just finished unpacking Janine Burke's newest line - Spa Collection by River's Bend (formerly Riverwood). This line is as gorgeous as all her others. Made up of shades of purple and green. Stay tuned for our shop sample. It will be made using a new pattern by Janine called Elements.
