Now in Stores | Dolittles by Cloud9 Fabrics

Soft colors and adorable animals make this collection a necessity. Printed on our ever so plush cotton flannel, these sweet creatures make the best cozy apparel or blankets you could imagine. They’re so great in fact, that we decided to add the same prints on quilter’s weight. The options are endless! Included in this collection are 4 solids, each in flannel and quilter’s weight, that coordinate perfectly with the three prints.

Now in Stores | Whitehaven by Feena Brooks

‘Whitehaven’ tells a story of an English summer with its vast skies, pretty meadows and gentle flowers. Inspired by memories of long summer holidays as a child, each pattern is named after a place in England that has a particular meaning for me and evokes a special memory. The colour palette is bring yet soft, giving a feeling of warmth and sunsine.

Now in Stores | Sow & Sew by Eloise Renouf

‘Sow and Sew’ was inspired by the move towards creative lifestyles, sustainability, taking time for yourself, and the simple joy of growing and making things. The imagery is based on new growth and motifs related to allotments, vegetable patches and herb gardens; small ways to connect with nature and the outdoors. These are represented in a clean and contemporary way, with fresh, modern palettes that invite new sewing projects – available on quilter’s cotton and canvas.

Now in Stores | To Market, To Market by Emily Isabella

Within the designs of “To Market, To Market”, a nostalgia filled story was woven about an everyday trip to the market. Emily Isabella playfully depicts the canopy of trees that covers your head as you journey along, carefully avoiding the buds that pop out of the sidewalk. The fruits and foliage acquired at the market are put in bowls and vases in your home, all while whispers of a childhood rhyme run through your head.

Now In Stores | Stay Gold by Aneela Hoey

Stay Gold by Aneela Hoey evolved from the classic line in the novel “The Outsiders” by S.E. Hinton. The phrase conjures up a feeling of hazy days, picnics, sun drenched flowers and the prettiest of summers. This was used as a starting point to create a modern version of a prairie look.

Now in Stores | Underwater by Elizabeth Olwen

Market Tote pattern by Noodlehead and Bermuda Shorts Butterick 6061

Underwater is inspired by a love of the ocean and the world that exists under its surface.

This is a tightly balanced range of cool pink, blue and citron – with a nice patternly mix of what we’ve come to love from Elizabeth. They mix well with a number of our Cirrus Solids and We Are All Stars, too!

Underwater is sure to be a spring and summer favorite and as winter hails upon us in the Northern Hemisphere, working on a project with this pretty bunch will get you readied for the warmer days.

Make It Sew | Unicorn and Stars Wall Hanging

unicorn_quilt_blogWe have had a great response to our Holding Horses quilt for Aneela Hoey’s Stay Gold collection and there was more than one request/suggestion to make it a unicorn. And here it is! We modified the silhouette a little and we think this version, appliquéd expertly by Linda Spiridon and quilted magically by Sue Papalia sparkles in We Are All Stars.

This is only a template. You can scale it to any size you like but this is printed at 100% the size you see in the photo.

Use whatever appliqué methods you like best on whatever size panel you care for. You can also make an entire quilt by piecing blocks together. For a more whimsical wall hanging, try some fancy trims. Sky’s the limit! Enjoy.
