Cindi McCracken has Big Dreams

Cindi has such an eye for creating awe inspiring designs with Hoffman panels – and these latest patterns, due to arrive next month – are no exception! Just look at these – and then start planning classes because everyone will want one!

Ring of Posies
Nexus

She creates kaleidoscope effects that are mind boggling. I love all of her stuff – and it keeps getting better and better!

Meet Lewis & Irene

Lewis & Irene fabrics are now available through Checker – and we couldn’t be happier! These collections have a modern charm that reflects the design team’s interests and loves.

Who doesn’t love an entire line that glows in the dark – and adds magic to any child’s room?

Blue Planets, Glows in the Dark

There are thirteen lines available on our website. Here is just a sampling of the charm that awaits you!

Teatime Little Plates Panel

Dark Cream Winter Floral
Sky Blue Duck Pond
Pale Green Santa's Tree
Tropical Sea Bumbleberries

Even their basics are charming!

Digitized Prints

Nostalgia is the name of the game with these gorgeous digitized prints from David Textiles. Each of these prints measures 36 inches so there are 15 panels per bolt. Add a pieced border to make a great throw in a matter of hours! A picture is worth a thousand words, so in this case, the pictures speak for themselves!

These nature prints are stunning as well. The crisp clean colors make them come to life.

Need some inspiration? Check out the possibilities in these two panel books. The panels and books would make a great display.

These panels are a Checker exclusive so place your orders by June 30, 2019.

Farm Girl Vintage 2

This is one of those posts that is written totally on faith! It is not due until September 15th and I haven’t seen pics of any of the projects BUT it is Lori Holt so you know you want it!

And, of course, there is a fabric line to support it as well:

The fabric is due to ship in June, the book in September so you have plenty of time to prep kits for a Fall class!

National Parks Fabric

Summer vacations are right around the corner and the tourism season begins. Riley Blake has created a line of fabric to commemorate our National parks.

This print comes in black and tan.

The companions are perfect – a print to show the patches; another to show the signs…you get the picture….

There are even individual panels for the most famous parks.

If you are lucky enough to live by one, why not design a quilt around it? You may find your inspiration in the Panel Play book.

This line is not due to arrive, however, until September BUT you can always have them pre-order it! Who doesn’t love getting a memory of a great vacation when life returns to normal?

Preview of Quilt Market

The new releases that will be showcased at Market in Kansas City are starting to appear on the website. There are no rhyme nor reason to these – just new items that I know you will want to order NOW!

The newest releases from Quiltworx include a centerpiece that can be separated into slices of watermelon. What a perfect summer centerpiece! Yogo Saphire is a limited edition pattern – there will only be 500 sold!

Cuppa Joe Place Mats by GE Designs is a darling quilt as you go project. What a cute addition to your table!

Fractions by Swirly Girls is a geometric masterpiece that would be a great choice for that man in your life!

This latest Cut Loose Press™ pattern, Surprise Party Quilt by Terri Faust, showcases a new technique using the Creative Grids® Cat’s Cradle Tool.

This table runner by Eazy Peazy looks just like Margaret Travis! Modern, fun and playful!

The Cut Loose Press™ pattern, of course, is always in stock. The others are all due to arrive next month!

Dream Bigger!

Who doesn’t love the Dream Big panels by Hoffman? They are stand alone gorgeous and make a stunning statement.

But how do you quilt them? Hancy has come up with a solution! They have template sets to get you started with design options so you can still add your own creativity.

Cindi McCracken uses them in a different way – she cuts them up and makes stunning quilts. Two of her latest creations will be arriving soon.

JoAnn Hoffman cuts them up for appliques in this spectacular bed runner!

Simply stunning!

Quilts under Foot

Back in the day, everyone had braided fabric rugs everywhere! Fast forward 50 years and with the popularity of hardwood floors, throw rugs are the new fashion statement.

This newest pattern by Shabby Fabrics features a Slice Rug. The flat side fits perfectly by the shower, the kitchen sink, or the front door. Choose your favorite 2-1/2 inch strips and one roll of Bosal 2-1/2 inch batting strips.

The pattern should be in stock next month so place your orders now!

Woven in Faith

This newest quilt pattern by Wing and a Prayer Design is arriving later this month. This double quilt makes quite a statement!

The wording comes on a 36 inch wide panel on a 15 yard bolt.


The Tapestry Collection by Timeless Treasures provides the perfect companions for this great quilt.
