Yay! Our local favorite Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet has designed her first collection of fabrics. Of course we had to get them! They are so classic and sweet, we are in love! The collection is called Sew Cherry and I am still working like mad to get all of it out on the floor and on the website. Lori has a collection of adorable patterns that go with the fabrics that we will be getting in the next few weeks. She sent me some sneak peak pictures that I cannot show you yet, but I know you will go nuts for them. Love it!
It is a busy next few weeks around here, so stay tuned! There is lots to share!

This is my very favorite fabric right now! I want to hop on the little red bike and enjoy the day. This is one of the fabrics from Spring Street a lovely collection that is in the shop. I went to bed last night and was not sure what to do with it and woke up this morning with the quilt all set in my head, I can’t wait to start working on it this weekend.

Words cannot describe how much I love this fabric. I know I will use it in quilt after quilt! This beautiful blossom reminds me of many of the Japanese florals we stock, yet it is from Alexander Henry. It is called Farmdale Blossom and I just love it!
I have used these two fabrics in about 6 quilts now. They are the best! We are on about our 5th bolt of each at the shop. I don’t know what it is about them, but they are great basics, without being so basic. Both are from the collection Wild Thyme. I like that the flowers are a little bit mod looking so the print works in places that a floral maybe would not. Anyway, I love them! and though I would share.
I know I am a little early on the Friday, being that it is Thursday, but I am going to try and take the day off tomorrow. Hopefully I can start the New Year out by getting some things done around home. Enjoy your weekend and Happy New Year to all. I hope 2011 brings some happiness to all of you! XOXO
This is a fabulous new quilt we have hanging in the shop. The maker and designer, Angela, made this as a first attempt at an Applique quilt. So if you are scared to do applique, don’t be! With a little determination you too could make something as wonderful as this! The designs are from a well known artist, Charley Harper. We have patterns for the quilt plus you must purchase the Charley Harper coloring book to get the applique images. Click here to buy a set of both to make this quilt.
These new fabrics are too fabulous for words. Enough said.
