With lots of new arrivals, we have been super busy around the Shoppe. New fabric is arriving daily and right along with all of that fabric are new projects! It's during these moments where I try and keep everyone connected as much as I possibly can seeew I hope you are enjoying!
The Blue Barn Quilt Kit pictured above will not last long. Much like the Homestead quilt we showed last year, these kits are already disappearing as we have only one batch (as you can see by my pile) and six of those have already sold! The beauty of our kits is you're going to get exactly what you need to complete your favorite quilt. Our kits are prepared with your convenience in mind. How many times have you been to a quilt shop and you have to wait behind someone who is planning an entire quilt because the kit sold out? Uh-huh. I know you all know what I'm talkin' about! Seeew personally...we love kits. The work has been done for you and you can grab and go! You can order yours here.
The collection features cotton prints and batiks. We tend to keep our batiks limited to certain color palettes and this blue combo is divine. Our favorite thing is to mix batiks with cottons as it tends to add a lot of interest to our quilts. I guess we will have to see what we can come up with!
Can I pause for a moment. Do you know how NOISY it is in our building? My office is next to the men's room and beneath the staircase of the building. I hear urinals flushing (no hand washing though...ew), doors slamming, high heels clacking across my ceiling with calves of steel, loud talking....it truly is a miracle that I can put this blog together today. LOL. Do they think I live in a barn (wink)? LOL. I'm trying to write a speech here!
The very popular pre-cuts are available with this collection including Charm Packs, Jelly Rolls and Fat Quarter Bundles. One of our students (shout out to Sharon) in Sherri McConnell's upcoming Grandmother's Fan Workshop is going to be using Blue Barn and I know it is going to be FABULOUS! Good for her! Sharon...if you're reading this....when your quilt is done, I'm going to feature you and your quilt on the blog. Just letting you know now!
Also new this month are these gorgeous Wool & Needle Flannels (pictured below)! Neutrals, greys and beautiful blues make up this entire collection! Such great colors for a guy like myself (hint to the Mothership). I already know that our Swoon quilt made with greys and blacks is mine for the taking seeew now...I need a flannel quilt to compliment it. Right??? You can never have too many quilts ladies and gentlemen...I don't care if your fabric is taking over your closet. Start buying patterns from your favorite local quilt shop and get busy using up that fabric seeew you can buy more!
That's all and stay seeew-cial! ~ Brian
