Hi everyone,

 

 

 

Happy Thursday! I hope you all are having a fabulous day. I hope you have been enjoying our Winter 2016 Collections Launch Week! Be sure to check out our latest launches here.

 

And speaking of things we enjoy, we absolutely adore when we hear the sweetest things about our fabric collections. And one shop who we just have to feature is Handmade for Hannah. Handmade for Hannah is a shop located in Australia, dedicated to showcasing simple designs in beautiful, high-quality fabrics. Sindy is the owner and designer behind the shop, with her shop name being inspired by her daughter. The wonderful thing is that each item in the Handmade for Hannah shop is carefully handmade by Sindy, so each piece is unique and made with love.

 

One of her recent handmade items is a custom, scoop-back dress for Julie, featuring our Let’s Go by Andrea Turk fabric. The light orange fox print is so pretty with the white piping around the neck and back line, and picot lace trim along the hemline! It is the most precious of little dresses, and we hope it gets to go on many fun adventures.

Hi everyone,

 

 

 

 

Happy Thursday! I hope you all are having a fantastic day. Today is National Hugging Day, so be sure to give a big bear hug to all your favorite people :)

 

On to one of our favorite people for today’s Thankful Thursday, one of artists – Allison Cole – received an honorable mention in the 3×3 Magazine. The 3×3 Magazine is all about highlighting different artists, illustrations, and designs. Each month is a new theme, such as “children’s picture books” where several artists and illustrations are featured.

 

Each year, 3×3 Magazine launches their “Annual”, where top juries choose best illustrations in the categories of professional, student, and children’s book. 395 winners from over two dozen countries are featured in the Annual. In their 12th issue, one of Allison Cole’s What’s Cookin’ prints – Kitchen in Cream – was featured as an honorable mention. We are so proud of and excited for Allison. She is such a talented and creative person, and we are so glad to know and work with her.

Hi everyone,

 

 

 

 

Happy Thursday! I hope you all are having a fantastic day. Have you entered our Farm Stand Giveaway yet? Be sure to head on over to our Facebook Page to enter.

 

Speaking of giveaways… there’s another chance to win another of our collections! This week, FaveQuilts is hosting a Winter Wonderland by Heather Rosas FQB Giveaway on their blog. It’s the perfect collection because of the season – who says winter can’t be cheerful and fun? Along with the giveaway, they also shared a review of the collection. It is so wonderful to hear what others think of our collections, as well as their ideas as to projects and design combinations. Our favorite part of their review was when Dana mentions her friends having different favorites in this collection: “If we as grown women are giddy over this collection, children will be, too. They will love and appreciate a new quilt made from the charming fabrics in this collection”. We are so glad you all adore this collection as much as we do!

Hi everyone!

 

 

 

 

Happy Thursday! I hope you all are having a lovey day.

 

Time for this week’s Thankful Thursday! New year, new beautiful quilts to be discovered!! Today we are sharing a gorgeous quilt pattern from Missouri Star Quilt Co. – Broken Bars! A version of the Broken Bars Quilt was created by Cristina Tepsick from Pretty Little Quilts. The quilt design reminded her of rows of books, and from that inspiration, created a Jane Austen-inspired color scheme with our Magnolia by Alisse Courter collection. She followed Jenny’s tutorial pretty much to a “t”, but changed the sizes of the strips to give an authentic bookshelf feel. We love her version, and how she even added strips of horizontal pieces to reference a real book’s spine. The Broken Bars quilt is such a great one, and we adore how Cristina revamped it! What a fantastic tutorial reboot.

Time for this week’s Thankful Thursday! Today we are featuring a couple of quilts done for us by Vicki of Orchid Owl Quilts. Vicki is truly a quilting goddess, and we adore working with her! We are kind of obsessed with her Instagram too – she’s always posting something new and beautiful – we recommend all quilters to check it out! One quilt she did for us was our Box Trot Quilt, with our Mickey Mouse and Friends collection. We love how the primary colors in this collection just pop. especially with the black borders around alternating rectangles. It perfectly brought together our whole Mickey Mouse and Friends section!

The other quilt she did for us was the Crossroads Quilt, featured in our Nordic section. This quilt is definitely very intricate – especially with all the little, alternating triangles – and Vicki did such a fantastic job. It was a stunning backdrop to our Nordic palette chair. So cozy and warm!
