Introducing Strawberry Fields Re-Visited! Save When You Order Today 1/18/16


* ATTENTION: IF YOU ARE NEW TO THIS BLOG, CURRENT POSTS FEATURE CURRENT PRODUCT WHICH IS AVAILABLE TO ORDER NOW.  If you are coming from Pinterest and looking for products featured in older posts (2010 -2014) we most likely are not carrying it. Our best advice is to start looking at what's new so that you don't miss out! 


If you have been living under a quilt well...lucky you. I'd love to be under a quilt right-about-now, but listen...Strawberry Fields Re-visited is the new collection by designer Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts. Her talent is out of this world and we love basically everything she does. I can tell you right now...those yellows...better get some while we have full bolts! They won't last. I know what I'm talking about. I hear's January and many of you are suffering those winter blues..but trust me! By the time the collection hits a magazine six months from now you'll be asking for this collection and a lot of it will be gone.

Happens. Every. Single. Year.

The collection has a soft, summer in the country feel, but yet has plenty of retro inspired prints. I love this's classy and sophisticated.

Speaking of yellow....I love this quilt. Just thought I'd throw that one in there to see if you're paying attention.


As I said at the beginning of this month, we are changing up the Shoppe in some big ways over the next couple of months. The first phase is doing some painting of existing walls that will not be touched in the process of the "face lift." We just finished one wall....and we love it! It's seeew cheerful and it looks great with our new Lori Holt Calico Days fabrics!


I have a feeling these colors will be playing throughout the Shoppe....


What makes me think that?

Oh ya it a hunch. It couldn't possibly have anything to do with our version of Fig Tree's Milky Way?


Or the fact that the "Mothership" has been playing with these colors in her own home? Seriously, on December 26, 2015 the Christmas came down and she was whipping up something new to begin the new year out of these Apple of My Eye fabrics.



Time is precious around here so we have to take advantage of every free minute!

I'm definitely looking forward to the year ahead. The inspiration we have in-store for you as we continue this process known as a "remodel" is something we are both looking forward too. Of course, we have our hands full and this remodel is now my only focus. I will not rest until it is done because I have a HUGE, HUGE interest in one of the new features of the remodel. I can't tell you...only a select few probably know...but I can see myself having a lot of fun with it!

For now...stay seeew-cial and keep checking back! You never know what we will be showing! Plus, I have big news on the designers for this year's S.p.R.u.N.g and our 8th Annual Homespun & Holly! I'd be signing up if I were you because we've got a fab line up of talent! ~ Brian

When You Look Tell Me What Do You See...


I thought today that instead of posting a long entry full of details...I would challenge you to take a look and "tell me what do you see..." Everbody gotta' believe! Having trouble finding hope in today's world? Has your imagination got ya down? Stuck in a rut? Feeling lost? Well, then check out not just the fabrics below, but my new favorite song from the musical, "Finding Neverland..." While you find the time to "Believe" here's a little pressure from me to you....remember, to stay seeew-cial! ~ Brian












A Look Back At Christmas 2015 As We Say Hello To 2016!



Happy 2016! It's a new year! Isn't that exciting? It's a clean palette waiting for you to imagine and dream up new possibilities! Before we begin I just have to say THANK YOU to those of you who follow this blog and actually read our emails! I know our lives are all busy, but truly when you take the time to check-in - I love you ten times more!

The quilt above is our new Juniper Christmas Tree Quilt. I knew there was hope for those silver/grays in the collection. Totally over-looked! As I type this, there is just one kit left (if it hasn't sold already). I thought..."HELLO! CHRISTMAS TREE QUILT!" From there...the "Mothership" took the reigns using Kate Spain's Solstice and well...gorgeousness. Again, it has been very popular seeew if it has already sold out...I'm sorry!  Looking at it makes me feel such joy and reminds me that in the world of quilting, Christmas lasts 365 days a year. I'm being serious about this. In fact, Kylie Minouge (in the video below) is telling you..."Every Day's Like Christmas." LOL. Should I come over and build you a fire?


P.S. You know Kylie is like the Australian version of Madonna, right? Remind me to share with you my up-close and personal with Madonna from her concert in October! Another time perhaps.

As we say good-bye to 2015, I want to reflect on Christmas 2015 as I didn't get to post many Christmas blogs this year. Oh I don't know...something called "life" got in the way?

Enjoy the little pictures below. DISCLAIMER: The quilt kits for both full sized quilts in this entry have sold out. This is just a photographic journey of Christmas 2015! The little table topper was the Mothership's December Breakfast Club project which is a free pattern found here.

Happy New Year & Stay Seeew-cial! ~ Brian
