Fresh Fabric

We are loving these bright and colorful fabrics from Westminster/Rowan. I have to admit that when I started quilting (back in the dark ages) I completely bypassed anything looking like this. But times have changes and so have I! The fabrics have improved immensely, both in quality and style, with wonderful designers bringing art to my work. Sometimes I sense that customers are unsure of how they would incorporate the color and scale of some of these fabrics into a traditional quilt design. Let me tell you that it is, indeed, possible to cut them up into small pieces or just use them in big chunks. Both looks can turn into an amazing design when it is all put together. Just give it a try! We will be happy to help you select the best pattern and fabrics for your next work of art! We have recently received a large shipment of Kaffe and friends, so don't miss out while the shelves are full!

Do stop in, I think I hear some fabric calling your name! Plenty of time to work on projects for yourself and others--look for our newsletter soon with some classes aimed at gifts to make without a huge time investment.
