New Fabric Collections

All Hallows Eve from Moda

Fig Tree Quilt's new fall collection is far more beautiful than spooky. Ghostly white, foggy gray, midnight black, and pumpkin orange will transport you to the season of hayrides, apple cider, corn mazes, and trick or treating! This collection would be great to use for either of the pumpkin quilts mentioned earlier in this newsletter.

Edison from Andover

A fun, little collection of reproduction style prints from Kathy Hall, Edison includes pin, paisley, and triangle prints. With colors of red, green, mustard yellow, orange, and Khaki this collection fits well into an autumn themed quilt.
Keep those happy thoughts flowing with this upbeat collection from Windham. It's modern and colorful with its combination of purples, aquas, and yellows. Prints include a little bit of everything: mermaid scales, prisms, plus signs, handwriting, twinkling stars, and inspirational words.

Full Moon from Andover

Take a midnight stroll through the woods, let the cool autumn breeze dance across your face, and let the full moon's light guide you on your way...or if that sounds a little too eerie for you...maybe just buy this fabric collection instead. It includes the colors of a dark midnight sky along with a little bit of orange to make you think of fall.

Kansas Troubles Favorites 2019

Kansas Troubles' collections are a favorite among many quilters. For their latest collection they've compiled a group of favorites from previous collections and put them together into their own collection. So check it out and see if any of your favorites were included in the mix!

Giving Thanks from Robert Kaufman

Thanksgiving will be here before we know it, so it's time to get to work on those fall projects! This collection features sunflowers, fallen leaves, and wheat, along with some really cool Ombre leaf fabric. Let it remind you to give thanks for all that we've been blessed with!

Little Tree from Moda

And now be prepared for the Christmas and wintertime collections to commence, starting with this fabulous little collection from Lella Boutique. Light green, red, gray, and frosty blue decorate these darling prints of poinsettias and evergreen trees. Also included is a large panel ( 74" x 56") encouraging you to "Have yourself a merry little Christmas".

Cuppa Cocoa from Wilmington

One of my favorite things to do during the winter is to curl up on the couch with a blanket and a cup of hot chocolate (with lots of whip cream, of course). This collection stirs up those feelings of contentment and coziness, with its lovely prints of mugs and peppermint candies, along with words like " hot" , "cozy" , and "everything's sweeter with cocoa". Panel and border print are included.

Winter Shimmer from Robert Kaufman

Dance among the snowflakes with this winter time collection designed by Jennifer Sampou. It emulates the shimmer that the forest has after a freshly fallen snow. Dusty blues, minty blues, grays, and golds make the prints of snowflakes and tree branches shine.

Christmas Bird Song from P & B Textiles

Sit by the window and watch the snowbirds fly as you sew this new collection consisting of chickadees and cardinals. Along with birds, it also includes pine needles, buffalo check, pine cones, and poinsettias. It's got all the makings for a good Christmas collection.

Snowy Wishes from Wilmington

Carrot nosed snowmen, candy canes, and buffalo check...what more does a Christmas collection need? You'll be sure to be singing about Frosty the Snowman as you sew these adorable prints done up in black, red, and gray. Use the border print to make a table runner for your home!

Shiny Objects Holiday Twinkle 2 from RJR

Ohhhhhh shinnnyyy. Metallic just adds something to a design, don't you think? Emerald green and cranberry red make this collection appear Christmas-y, but they could also be used as mix-ins for other color schemes as well!

Woodland Friends from Wilmington

A frosted forest filled with furry friends. Explore the scenic winter woods and you just might find an earmuff wearing hedgehog in this beautiful collection designed by Michael Davis. It's the perfect combination of grays and teals with just a touch of red and green.

Merry Starts Here from Moda

We may be at the end of our collections, but Merry still starts here. Hopefully these Christmas collections bring a little bit of that wonderful Christmas spirit into the midst of summer. This particular collection includes Christmas recipes, pines leaves, and lots of plaid!
