Sugar Pines, Blue Barn & Mahalo

Blue-Barn-Fabrics (1)


We have the new Sugar Pines Blue Barn Quilt Kit on the website today using those beautiful Blue Barn cottons and Blue Barn batiks! Quilts like this...are quite the masterpiece and never go out of style. Like...ever. You can never go wrong with the traditional colors of blue and cream. 50 years from now, a family member is going to open it up and relish it the same way you did when you finally finished it. Just something to think about boys and girls. Isn't it pretty? You can order your complete kit here.



If you haven't been into the Shoppe to check out the Blue Barn collection, whatcha' waiting for? The collection is very popular and if you love classic blues, the time is now to start building a quilt with them. When we view collections to purchase them, it's often 4 to 6 months before delivery. Seeew, when I'm sharing what's in the Shoppe now....that's when you want to start planning your dream quilt if you don't already see one. Both the Sugar Pine Quilt and our Blue Barn Quilt blend cotton and batiks.

Speaking of the Blue Barn Quilt....


One of the reasons we invest seeew much into making our quilt samples, is so that we can pass the savings onto you. For example, the pattern for this quilt states to use both a Blue Barn cotton Fat Quarter Bundle and a Blue Barn batik Fat Quarter Bundle for variety. But let's be honest...who is going to put a cream barn on top of a cream background? That cream/tan barn is going to get lost and not show up. By adding two Fat Quarter Bundles to our kit, that would make the price of our kit $200. Does anyone see a cream/tan barn in this pic? I sure don't. 


Seeew Jan prepared our kits with both the blue cotton and batik Fat Quarters as shown. We also give you plenty of background, binding and the pattern. Our kit price...$124.99.

The extra work of planning she put into creating our kits just saved you $80. You're welcome.

Sherri-McConnell-Workshop (1)

Last weekend we were fortunate to have Moda designer Sherri McConnell here at the Shoppe teaching two separate workshops. I'll try and post a recap later seeew that you can see some of the beautiful variations each of these ladies made of Sherri's Grandmother's Fan pattern (which has since been renamed to Mahalo).


Since this is a post about those luscious Blue Barn fabrics, I figured I would show longtime customer Sharon Loun's version of the Mahalo pattern which is pictured above. Isn't it gorgeous? It's proof that this pattern is very versatile and looks great in just about anything! I'll try and get a re-cap up to show you the versions I saw being made over the weekend but for now, here is a reminder of what the entire project looks like using Sherri's original sample.

Until next time....stay seeew-cial! ~ Brian
