Hope you are having a blast this summer. National Merry-Go-Round Day was celebrated just last Friday. It was the anniversary of the patent for the modern carousel awarded to William Schneider of Davenport, Iowa, in 1871. Since then, the popular amusement park ride featuring revolving wooden horses and circus music has been a fixture at just about every theme park in the country. You can click on the picture above to order our new Dear Stella Carousel fabric.

New Judy Niemeyer Pattern and Kit
Fire Island Hosta Queen Size Pattern and Fabric Kits
Fire Island Hosta Queen is the much anticipated Queen Size version of the Fire Island Hosta pattern. The Queen Size pattern is published as a stand alone design instead of an expansion package. The pattern features Judy's newest paper piecing technique, Curved Paper Piecing, to complete the feature leaves in the center, and a curved border design that has new assembly techniques in order to successfully complete the quilt. This quilt is a wonderful design for those looking to expand their paper piecing skills and is sure to be a show-stopper. Our fabric kits include the exact fabrics as the original pictured.

Our Color Love block of the month features Nancy Rink's new-fashioned palette of mid-bright textures and geometric motifs, anchored by a deep blue Jacobean-inspired floral. With subtle print motifs like plaids, fireworks, chubby flowers and various textures, set on a background of soft muted solids, Color Love is geared to quilters who crave something fresh and flexible. There are two versions of the same quilt: an applique version and a pieced version. Your monthly kits will allow you to choose to make either the applique or pieced blocks or a combination of both!
Garden Home is a lovely quilt that combines fused applique, hand embroidery & piecing. The applique blocks depict homes in a garden setting complete with cats, chickens, flowers and birds. Our block of the month kits will feature the exact fabrics used in the original quilt pictured which are from Kathy's Patchwork Garden collection from Moda fabrics. All applique pieces are laser cut with Soft Fuse fusible attached. No need to trace, cut out, or turn the edges. We are lucky enough to have this quilt hanging in the shop! Below is a close-up photo of one of the blocks.
