Hi everyone!




Happy Friday! So happy that it is just about the weekend! We recently uploaded our Basics Catalog, so be sure to check it out. As well…Spring 2014 collections are coming!! 3 more days until we start launching our collections.




We have been celebrating our mums this week for Mother’s Day and are ending the week with a very suiting quilt pattern from Quilters’ Paradise for Fan Friday! Quilters’ Paradise is a wonderful quilt shop located in central California, run by 3 girls who adore fabric and all things quilting! And this definitely holds true as the shop has been around for over 37 years! Quilters’ Paradise sells a wide selection of fabrics, including wool which is hand-dyed in store, as well as patterns, notions, books, and more sewing goodies.


As well, they feature Blocks of the Month, kits, and wool projects for both beginner and advanced quilters. They also hold many quilting enthused events such as in-store sewing classes, Spring & Fall shop hops, and a yearly 4-day sewing retreat (including a mystery project, games, and door prizes) organized in the mountains!


Fan Friday | Mommy & Me Quilt by Quilter's Paradise | Gray Matters More



One of their partners, Colette Belt, is the quilt designer behind QP Designs. She has created over 60 pattern designs, her latest being Mommy & Me, using our Gray Matters More by Jackie McFee collection! Mommy & Me (how fitting and adorable is this name?! We love it!) is a lovely quilt pattern design that features an appliqued mama elephant and her baby…carrying some sweet balloons! The quilt design is a wonderful block pattern, finished with a ric-rac trim, which looks absolutely lovely with our Gray Matters More collection. This quilt is perfect for any new mommy, and Colette’s inspiration came from the birth of her first granddaughter Kensington! {Congratulations, Colette!!}


We wanted to thank Quilters’ Paradise for sharing this absolutely adorable quilt kit with us. We absolute adore it, and think Gray Matters More is the perfect fabric collection to showcase Mommy & Me. Colette, you are a fantastic designer! Be sure to check out Quilter’ ‘Paradise for even more, as well as on their Facebook and Pinterest. Have a great weekend everyone!





Happy Sewing!
