New! Modern Patchwork, Star Wars & Bunny Hill

Quite a few new fabrics, books and patterns have been added to the shelves this last couple of weeks and we wanted to share a few of them with you.

This new book from Oregon native Elizabeth Hartman is titled, Modern Patchwork. Her detailed instruction makes each quilt's pattern and construction easy to understand.

This quilt is titled "Glam Garlands" and Elizabeth has this to say about it:
    "Glam Garlands is another quilt where quilting with white thread helped to create bold, white negative space. All of the quilts in Modern Patchwork have a coordinating back that somehow relates to the design on the front of the quilt."

    "In the case of Glam Garlands, I used the same sizes and shapes of colorful pieces from the quilt top, but put them together in a different way."

Everyone here at the store is SUPER excited about this new line of Star Wars fabric from Camelot Cottons!

These are 100% cotton prints featuring the familiar Star Wars logo plus many of the characters such as Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Yoda, R2D2 and more!

Enjoy a bit of whimsy mixed with a lot of red and make your winter holidays extra merry this year! This delightful 62" x 66" quilt titled, "Merry Merry Snowmen" from Bunny Hill Designs, is available as a class at our store! There's still time to sign up, class starts on June 24th - LEARN MORE.

For those of you not able to take the class, we also have the pattern available to make this fun quilt!

This collection of Americana fabrics from Henry Glass & Co. is titled, Freedom's Star. Rich red, true blues and parchment colors play with traditional stars and stripes; as well as damask and paisley inspired patterns. These fabrics would make a stunning quilt top for the American Hero Quilts organization.

There is still time left to submit your quilt top to our Quilt for Our Heroes contest! Entries must be submitted by 8:30pm PST on June 30th to be entered. All quilts will be donated to the American Hero Quilts foundation, who will then send them to the Army Medical Hospital at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Lacey, Washington. They will go to our wounded soldiers to help aid them in their recovery.

and how YOU can become a part of this great foundation's mission.
