The gradations in this line are stunning! Order everything now because you know it will sell out fast!

Laura Heine – Fabric and Patterns

I can’t wait for you to see the new fabric line “The Dress” by Laura Heine with Free Spirit.  It is the soft fabrics that bring her collages to life!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Check out her new patterns that have these softer colors. The giraffe and seahorse patterns are mini versions of her popular patterns.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cake Mix Collage is a total collage – including the background. Montgomery Moose Painterly appears to have brush strokes but it is a piecing technique that Laura has created.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The patterns are arriving next month the fabric in December – just in time for Winter classes.

Charming by Gerri Robinson

Gerri Robinson’s “Charming” line by Penny Rose Fabrics is due to arrive this month. Her combination of navy, blue, and taupe is striking. Check out a sampling of the colors and prints.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the support for this line is amazing! Each pattern includes two different quilts that compliment each other in style and substance.

Blooming Baskets includes seven different appliques showcased in a beautiful star setting and a star version. The border would add interest to any quilt. Not a fan of applique?  No problem – make the entire quilt in stars.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hidden Shoofly and Flutter look totally different buy both settings actually highlight star blocks. Why not offer a class and give your students a choice of settings?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blossom provides impressive negative space to showcase elaborate quilting. Flower Patch Blossoms fulls that space with additional flowers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Garden Rows and Scattered Seeds are reminiscent of Irish Chain quilts. Wow!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last but not least is Windmills – a fast and easy quilt made from 2 1/2″ strips.

 

 

 

 

 

Be sure to order the patterns now so you can display them with the fabric when it arrives. The hardest part is going to be deciding which quilt to make!

The Perfect Solids for Applique

Me and You by Hoffman offers an incredible line of solids that have the feel and characteristics of batiks – which means they don’t fray and ravel, the perfect choice for raw edge applique.  And, JoAnn Hoffman’s new designs due in this month showcase them perfectly!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The design detail in these two projects truly transforms them into a work of art.  Look how the hands form a secondary star pattern in Sisters of the Cloth.  The muted quilts in the background of the Yoder Sisters is a subtle touch that adds that awe factor that we all love!  Her attention to detail is what brings these solids alive!  To see the complete collection, visit our website:  Me and You Solids

This is the same gal that brought us the Dragonfly and Butterfly patterns that made batiks sing.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Be sure to take the time to study her fabric choices.  Her designs look like Tiffany glass!

A Legend Has Returned

There are few people who truly have achieved legendary status in our industry – and when you combine talent with a gracious, kind and warm personality, you have Nancy Halvorsen!  And I am thrilled to announce that she has returned with a new book and line of fabric that you are sure to love!

Bree has mass appeal!  It is colorful, happy, and charming – an irresistible combination!  And for those of you who were looking for an updated version of 30’s fabric, it has arrived!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The line has 38 bolts and is available in 10 and 15 yard cuts as well as 2 1/2″ strips and fat quarters.  The focus print comes in several colors and is a stunning paisley.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The checks have little dots running vertically and horizontally to add extra interest to the piece.  I can’t wait to use this as a binding!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And then there are the swirls…..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And a  book that ties them all together…This book includes a block the month cover quilt with words that are sure to inspire along with 21 projects for every season!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And everything will be available in your quilt shops in July!  Summer just got a whole lot better!

Red, White and Black Takes Center Stage

Quiltworx is releasing three new patterns this month – all showcased in red, white and blacks:

quart-rose

This fabric line – designed by Judy and Judell for Timeless Treasures – has around twenty different prints.  Why not buy all of them?  These are the most difficult fabrics to find in batiks so shops can never have enough!  There are also several pre-cuts to choose from.  See the entire line at:

Looking for a Large Quilt?

I love quilts that actually fit a bed and this 106 inch square pattern called Forest Floor is the perfect size for a queen or king size bed.  Forest Floor by Wing and a Prayer Design is simply stunning!  This block of the month quilt has such an unusual setting that you don’t even realize it was designed for a series of classes.

This is striking in Batiks but would be amazing in other fabrics as well.  Why not make it in more than one colorway?

Riley Blake is on it’s way!

We are so excited to announce that we are now distributing Riley Blake fabric and notions!  They have amazing designers on board and the best pre-cut selection I have ever seen.  They add that awe factor to their packaging as well.  Check out these Crayola boxes for instance – who could resist???  When I first saw them, I thought they were sidewalk chalk – they were so realistic!  This is the best packaging for fat quarters that I have ever seen!

FQB-CR120-10 FQB-VCR120-10

Their other pre-cuts come in a variety of sizes that will make every designer drool.  They don’t just have five and ten inch stackers — they have three and a half and seven inch squares as well.  And the number of squares in a pack can vary as well so make sure you order the right set! Rollie Pollies are strips that come in 2 1/2″ and 3 1/2″ widths.

10-120-24 RP-610-10

They also have fat quarters and one yard cuts!  ALL of this is in addition to the bolts!  Don’t forget to pick up some of this eye candy to display with the complete collections!  They are in the process of loading all of the images.  Call your sales rep to make an appointment!

Cork Fabric is Hot – and we are getting it!

Many of you “winers” have heard, most wineries are going to screw top lids instead of corks.  What are they going to do with all of that cork?  Turn it into fabric of course – and it is arriving in September!

It comes in approximately 5 1/2 yard rolls that are 54″ wide.  At around $60 to $80 a yard retail, this is definitely a statement piece – but oh what a statement it makes!

Laurie is the buyer for this and is also a machine embroiderer.  She LOVED it so I can’t wait to see what the machine shops do with it!

We already have designers working on samples using your favorite patterns so we will keep you posted.  But for now, I just wanted you to know it was coming – and start dreaming of possibilities.  We would love to hear YOUR ideas!  And look at these colors and textures!
