    • Batik Textile's Border Fabrics

      Cathy has been getting some beautiful new batiks in. I've been surprised that she has found some very unusual border prints that are being produced by Bali Textiles. I hadn't seen a border print in a batik until I saw this one navy print. But she had four more come in! A couple are subtle and it's hard to see the border in the online images, like the blue, green and pink ones. The black/rainbow print also has a leafy/vine like border on it too. The navy border print pairs nicely with a coordinating vine. Batik lovers should definitely check these out. Continue reading

    • Furoshiki- Cloth Gift Wrapping

      Cloth gift wrap


      This holiday season I tried to use Furoshiki gift wrapping instead of the conventional paper. Furoshiki is a Japanese tradition of gift wrapping with cloth. Part of this new resolution comes from trying to be more eco friendly. Cloth holds up better than paper and can be reused more; either as gift wrap again, as a scarf, napkin, table cloth (all depends on size), or cut up into a project. :) I have so much fabric calling to me just asking to be used for something and this practice assuages that call. Not to mention it makes beautiful gifts! Another reason is that if I buy the fabric for wrapping a gift it gets calculated as part of the gift cost - not my blow money. But if some of the scraps from trimming the cloth wrapping end up in my stash - that's a bonus ;). And if the gift reciever is in my family - the cloth could end up in my stash-for storage purposes. So be sure to choose cloth that suits the gift recepient and your stash. ;) Continue reading

      Tina Givens Fairy Tip Toes Pink Panel

      Ok, I confess I begged Cathy to buy this line of fabric that was designed by Tina Givens. I'm new to the area and was curious when a few local quilters where talking about a local fabric designer. So I looked her up online and found her blog. I fell in love with Fairy Tip Toes.

    • It's a Mystery

      Fabric Choices-high contrast works best


      Have you ever made a mystery quilt? If not, they are fun! I made my first Mystery Quilt several years ago when a local shop was running a mystery quilt project. It was perfect for me as a new quilter. I did not really know what I wanted to make and I was a little bit uncomfortable in the quilt shop with so many fabric choices! The mystery quilt required just three fabrics so I did not have to make many overwhelming decisions. Perfect! The shop also posted what the quilt looked like, so I could make sure that my pieces were accurate as I went along. In the end, I had a gorgeous quilt that would have looked too intimidating to me to try if I had seen what it would look like in the beginning. Now that I have a quilt shop, I wanted to pass on this experience to others, so if you have not picked up your FREE pattern at the shop, please join us by picking up your pattern next time you are in the shop. I would like to thank Nancy, our Mystery Quilter for making the sample that is in the shop and providing these great pictures of her "in progress" Mystery Quilt. Let us know what you think!
