I guess you could say the circus has come to Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe & Mercantile! The door above is kind of like the doorway to my imagination and how my mind works. Since my mind always relates to songs, when it came to music for this post it was either Britney Spears "Circus" or Dumbo. To keep it safe....I went with...Dumbo. LOL. However...I could have had a lot of fun with Britney. LOL. "Casey Junior's coming down the tracks ladies and gentlemen!"
I'm about to show you a few new quilt projects and fabrics created specifically with any little one in mind - from infant to toddler, there is plenty to select from in the Shoppe now.
One of our newest collections is this sweet little vintage circus collection called, Vintage Circus by Lewis & Irene. Have you heard of this company yet? Their collections are smaller (which we love) and their hand is lovely. It's a father-daughter team and their goal is that their prints will make you smile. They never disappoint. You can view the collections we have here. In picking out a pattern for our samples, the "Mothership" relied on the simple quilts featured in Simply Fat Quarters and Fat Quarter Style. I know a lot of people have loved that the muted tones of the fabrics are perfect for boys and girls - which definitely helps in the selection process.
We have made kits of both the Vintage Circus Poppy Quilt pictured above and the Vintage Circus Marble Quilt pictured below. Both patterns remind us of circus tent tops and each background gives the quilt a vintage feel. Each quilt kit includes ample fabric to create the quilt top and binding. The book is also included. Our kits are very reasonably priced and save you the time of hunting down fabrics.
If you already have the book and just want the fabric, we can post a credit of the book price before shipping. We will only do this for our kits that include books. This is of course where I remind you to #shoplocal. I know people purchase books from on-line-only sources including designers. I am a huge advocate of #shoplocal. If you must order an item from on-line, make sure they have a brick and mortar that you could visit. #shoplocal #itdoesmatter.
There is nothing better than the attention to detail that Jan puts into our quilt kits...they are literally like presents and excellently priced.
To make the Vintage Circus Marble Quilt, the "Mothership" did change the way the borders are done and included a piano key border on the top and bottom. Seeew adorable. The changes are included with our kit.
Yellow and grey continue to one of the hottest color trends right now seeew we made another quilt in these colors for one of Christine's grandchildren. Isn't it sweet? You can order a kit by tapping the image or click here.
BTW...Moda's Sweet Baby Flannels are in the Shoppe now and they are quite popular. I wouldn't wait too long! Once the new year begins, there are lots of people being told they will be grandparents. It's a good idea to start thinking now because our baby flannels do sell out.
That's it for today. I've got more painting to do seeew, stay seeew-cial! ~ Brian
