We got a shipment of Fruitcake....and we're happy about it!!

Okay, maybe not THAT kind of fruitcake. This Fruitcake will make you happy when you find it in your mailbox! I'm talking about Basic Grey's follow-up to the ever so popular Figgy Pudding collection. Last summer when I saw Figgy Pudding, I just thought Christmas fabric could not be any cuter. I LOVED it. Really!

But then I saw Fruitcake and, well, Christmas fabric does get cuter. Snowmen, vintage ornaments, snowflakes, oh my! Fruitcake has delicious-sounding colors like hot cocoa, maraschino cherry, sugar cookies and spearmint. I was getting hungry just listing this stuff! And it looks even better than it sounds. The colors are gorgeous and the designs are just amazing. And the quilts I have seen made with Fruitcake - oh my. Beautiful! We are planning on at least one kit (probably two) - so keep checking with us. We are stocking the entire collection as well as all of the pre-cuts. Hurry on over for a visit and have some Fruitcake!

International Quilt Market Spring 1.0

We attended the International Quilt Market in Minneapolis, Minnesota in late May and purchased many lovely lines of fabric to share with you over the coming months. One of our favorites is Lily and Will by new Moda designers Bunny Hill Designs.

"There they were, the charming and energetic Lily and her thoughtful inquisitive brother, Will. Two total opposites, yet somehow blended together perfectly."

Unfortunately, this line is not going to be available until October- but don't you love it? This versatile line will have 36 cotton prints, two canvas prints (the blue and pink damask), four quilted texture prints, four waffle cloth prints, satin trim and four poly satin prints. There will also be quilt patterns, baby blankets, diaper bags, and baby bibs. Precut fat quarter bundles will come in pink, blue and green colorways, as will the jelly rolls and layer cakes.
