Moody overcast skies, cooler temps and misty rain... It's a bit unusual for August here in Utah, but it's giving me all the fall feels and I LOVE IT. I can't help but think of sewing up something especially for autumn. If, like me, you're a bit of a fall fanatic, we have so many fun things in store for you! I have lots to share, so let's get right to it!
When the Rustic Gatherings pattern book arrived, Marianne Michaels spotted this unique Round Up quilt and immediately began pulling a blend of cheddar hued prints to piece against a charcoal flannel background. Perfect for a modern setting, this cozy 78" x 96" quilt hints of autumn but is appropriate year round. You'll love all the quilt patterns in this beautiful new book from Lisa Bogean of Primitive Gatherings!
Marianne also whipped up the Autumn Bowl Fillers by Pin and Proper Designs. She's ready to decorate her table or mantle for all the fall festivities! You really need to see the wonderful details on each tiny cushion in person. Her hand-dyed wool, embellishment stitches and buttons add depth and interest. We have kits ready for you that include the pattern for $49.99.
Because fall feels like the ideal time for wool projects, we have lots of kits and patterns available so you can spend cool autumn months stitching the day away. Another shop favorite is this fun Pumpkin Farm wool applique project by Jerome Thomas Designs. Our friend Joanne Hawks made this one currently on display at the shop and lucky for you we do have kits for $66.99. Finishing at 17" x 17," it makes great fall wall decor or you could add a backing and make it a pillow.
As for fall fabrics... oh, we have just a few... Spellbound by Sweetfire Road is a favorite this year and we have the full collection! With orange hues that range from pumpkin to spice, this line has details sure to make Halloween fans happy! Come in and see our full selection of Fall and Halloween prints or search our online fabric offering to see what's new.
The most highly anticipated Halloween collection just came through our door this morning! Tiny Frights is here! Another fabulous collaboration from the ladies at Ruby Star Society, this time featuring itty-bitty Halloween motifs in their signature modern color palette. We're currently working to get it checked in but you can start ordering now online and select shipping or pick up!
