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!
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.
Are you familiar with the term Zakka? It is a Japanese word meaning miscellaneous goods. In the sewing world it has become a work to describe the myriad of objects that you can make for your home. They are sweet and simple items with a certain old fashioned aesthetic that enhance the environment that you live in day to day. Because they are made by you, they represent your personal style perfectly. I Love Patchwork is a new book by Rashida Coleman-Hale that is packed full of Zakka projects. Her fabric choices are so beautiful, I want to copy everything exactly as it appears in the book! Everything included is worth making, but I am particularly in love with the two items below. The little lamb is a must! I don’t think I have every found a calendar that I have deemed worthy to hang on my wall, I always hide them inside the cabinet. But the fabric version below will have a prominent place on my wall once I can get it made!!
