I love our blog. It is the best tool for finding out what fabrics we carry here in the Shoppe...just as long as you're looking at posts I have created in 2016. Anyway, remember a couple of posts ago when I was showing you some of the new collections that premiered at Quilt Market for Retailers last month? Well, we were able to meet with our favorite Moda rep yesterday to see all of the exciting collections in person! I took a few pictures, but I must warn you....I didn't take pictures of everything. We like to throw in a few surprises or two! The fabrics I show you here today will arrive between now & November.
First of all...we knew that before anything else we just had to order Olive's Flower Market. This is the first time we've ordered a Lella Boutique collection seeew it will be super fun to play with a new style and color palette. The collection arrives in November....and it's well worth the wait!
This next collection doesn't need me to tell you how incredibly cute it is. It's perfect. Darling Little Dickens is by Moda's newest designer, Lydia Nelson of Dreamy Quilts. Love everything about this collection and more! It too is scheduled for November/December. If my memory serves correctly January is the peak of what I'm calling the "News of Baby" season! I think a lot of you get told at Christmas that the Stork is on the way! BTW and totally random...but did anyone see the Pelican that scarfed down a pigeon on Social Media? It was...insane. I don't even know why that popped into my mind right now. LOL.
Be looking for this collection near the end of the year!
Our next collection should be no surprise! We have loved the fabrics of Fig Tree ever since the first collection we carried...which was Yuletide Blessing. Seems like forever ago knowing we've been here for ten years! Her fabrics blend from collection to collection which is why you will always find them around here. Her new Chestnut Street fabric is no exception and it will arrive in September/October.
Sandy Klop alert! This one is near and dear to us at Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe! When Sandy was here last year I asked her, "Hey Sandy..." (she's sweet as can possibly be), "would you ever name a collection Hop, Skip And A Jump?" She was delighted and said that she would totally plan a collection around that. Well, here it is....it's seeeew cute! There are even some paper doll prints that go with the collection that I forgot to get a photo of. Look for Hop, Skip And A Jump in October!
The last collection I actually got pictures of is of Sherri McConnell's Desert Bloom. Sherri will be teaching her Grandmother's Applique workshop and Kitchen Sink workshop here on August 5 & August 6. Be sure to get registered now. Desert Bloom arrives in November. I see some gray!
As always, we will have plenty arriving between now and the fall season. In fact, today we just opened our boxes of Little Ruby, and Jol. Sweetwater's The Cookie Exhange just made it on the floor and we've got some fun and cute projects planned with such an adorable collection. In fact, the "Mothership" and Christine will be teaching me my very first quilt using Sherri's very popular book and fabrics from The Cookie Exchange. I told them I need a break from display work. "The Mothership" guided me with fabric selection and as always she nailed it.
That's it for today folks. Remember, #shoplocal and stay seeew-cial! ~ Brian
