More GREAT GUY quilts, pillow cases, etc.
can be made with the extremely popular ALEXANDER HENRY MUSTACHE fabric.
Breckyn, who may be
Alexander Henry's biggest fan, met the designer of the mustache fabric,
Philip de Leon, as well as an Alexander Henry TALL salesman who is really
"in the groove" looking like an AHenry character! LOL
Check out all our ALEXANDER
HENRY fabrics here:
Also great for many a
dad, ELVIS ON
TOUR. Fabric is disappearing, but there are
still a couple of quilt kits available with a fast pattern for Father's day,

mad, but the new stuff is coming in at an even faster rate! Come
check it out! It's stacked everywhere! :)
HALLOWEEN & CHRISTMAS in MAY! LOL
We had a great time at
QUILT MARKET last weekend and carried back lots of great ideas &
We saw NEW STUFF from
favorite designers, like Terry Atkinson's GRAPHIC
We got NEW IDEAS for
EXISTING FABRIC like Terry's GRAPHIC MIXX pattern made with Marcia
Derse's fabric that we already have in the store.
We also found HAPPY
SCRAPPY WHOOO, a STUFFED OWL pattern, to use with FANCY CUDDLE fleece
that we have in the store. Isn't my new friend cute?!
I have great tips for
working with CUDDLE! #1 - keep a vacuum handy, #2 - use
weights to hold down patterns, #3 - use lots of pins when
sewing. And just do it! The CUDDLE we carry is only
stretchy in one direction, unlike other brands out there. This
makes it easier to sew.
We found NEW FABRIC companies,
like ADORN IT. Owls were everywhere!
We found FAVORITE FABRIC
companies, like MICHAEL
MILLER, and their Over-the-top, BigTop themed
booth, with Elephants! Elephants were everywhere!
My favorite NEW
DESIGNER, may have been ZEN CHIC,
from Germany. Very fresh, very modern! Modern was
And we saw some of our
more familiar, favorite designers like Edyta Sitar with LAUNDRY BASKET
QUILTS. Her latest book is awesome, and her upcoming fabrics
& patterns, with a RAIN theme, were lovely, and I can't wait to
start a new project with her stuff!! Inspiration was
everywhere! (Notice the flower bouquets in rain boots!)
There were NEW CONCEPTS,
like QR codes - even in quilts! If you have a smart phone, you
may be familiar with this. If not yet, you probably will be
soon! QR codes were everywhere!
And there were Old IDEA, still good,
like FABRIC COVERED SHOES! (Remember Modge Podge?) Black &
white was everywhere!
And did I say, Hexagons
And, last but not least, YOUNG authors, designers, and their MODERN QUILTS
This new generation of
quilters is thinking outside the box, yet, ironically, lots of designs
seemed very much based on "the box". LOL
"outside the box", Mary & I were very
excited to discover one of our favorite products has been NEW &
IMPROVED - The
MAGNETIC INVISIBLE QUILT HANGER.
NOW AVAILABLE...the newest version of the Invisible Quilt Hanger will hang quilts from mini to king size with a single
package, even more affordable.
Magnetic Invisible Quilt Hanger 5 Piece Kit mounted with removable adhesive strips will not damage your walls.
No more push-pins, screws, nails, or levels! We love
these! Great in our old houses with uneven, plaster/lath walls.
Like all of us, I'm pretty sure you
have SCRAPS, old & new.
Here are two great patterns we
discovered from Grizzly Gulch Gallery that will eat up your scraps,
one narrow strip at a time, yards & yards worth!
Hooked & Get Hooked
II - 10 different Rugs & Table Runners, in two patterns which
each include the appropriate size CROCHET HOOK. Very easy, written for those who do not crochet.
And last, but certainly not least, be sure to check out all the NEWEST
FABRICS that have just been posted on the WEB here:
Hope to see
Have a wonderful week-end and may it be "long" for you too!
