More cats! This collection from Windham is 'Smarty Cats'. I love the books and colors in this collection. It makes it a little more 'grown up'. Click here to see it on the website.
Thicket is back! We ordered more because they have been so popular. Come and see the pillows in the window of the shop using the large panels. So cute! We now have both the small and large panels. See them on the website by clicking here.

On February 9th I will be having my color class. I don't try and teach you color theory. I try to give you a more intuitive approach to selecting colors for your quilt. It's a fun, eye opening experience. Click here for more information.
Moda has given us more words, numbers, music and maps with this collection along with coordinating Grunge. It is aptly named 'Compositions'. Click here to see it on the website. Please note that we also received a white Grunge and a white grid pattern that is part of this collection. They aren't pictured here.
Alexander Henry has come through with more bold and colorful fabric.

Our new arrivals this week are from Cotton + Steel. I couldn't resist the dresses and shirts. I just had to take a 1/2 yd of each home. I'll have to make some zippered bags for the shop. The dress print is from 'Jubilee' by Melody Miller and the shirts are from 'Kujira' by Rashida Coleman-Hale.
'Sleep Tight' by Sarah Watts is also from Cotton + Steel. The hedgehogs are so cute and the other prints have great shimmer. The black hedgehogs are a cotton/linen canvas. The last print is from the 'Flower Shop' collection. Click here to see it on the website.
