Thirties Prints in a Charming Setting

Judie Rothermel’s new collection, Basket of Scraps by Marcus Brothers. is featured in an upcoming book by It’s Sew Emma.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Block of the Month style quilt book is due to arrive next month – perfect timing to wash away those Winter blues.

The setting stars which frame the blocks are simply stunning. The quilt can be made in two sizes – queen and king – so you can finally make a quilt to fit your bed. And, since it is a block of the month, it can be pieced a little at a time so they have removed the intimidation factor.

Here is just a sampling of this fabric line which is due to arrive later this month:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Conversational prints combined with mini coordinates – and a check threw in (which would be an awesome binding) – who could ask for anything more???

Violet Craft and Palm Canyon

When I saw the latest pattern by Violet Craft was in the top 50 BEFORE it was in stock, a girl just has to sit up and take notice!  Then I saw her new fabric line due to arrive in February and it all made sense!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This stunning quilt is made from Robert Kaufman Palm Canyon – and boy did she capture the essence of the landscape that inspired it!  Just look at some of these prints:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The pattern will be available before the fabric arrives so why not prep your paper-piecing templates and be prepared? Consider ordering the kit and printing the foundations for them. Everyone loves being spoiled!

Lynette Anderson at her Quirky Best

I love the muted colors that Lynette Anderson designs and features in her patterns. This latest fabric line from RJR, Peacock Manor by Lynette Anderson Collection is due to arrive in April. Her latest patterns showcase how these colors work together to create stunning results and are due to arrive next month!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Forest Floor table runner features a hexie center with an embroidered border of flowers, bees, toadstools and her signature hearts.  The Kissing Tree table topper accentuates embroidered trees with friendship stars – what a great choice for a wedding present!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Four Seasons is a gorgeous framed piece.  The hearts each have a whimsical scene.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And then there is this charming sewing kit…

 

 

 

 

 

 

And then there are the pieced quilts…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t you love the muted colors – and the embroidery adds that awe factor. Why not set up a display today?

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!
