You know how life sometimes throws you a curveball? Your day doesn't go quite as planned? Your energy is diverted in a different direction than expected? What do you do? You roll with it! And so today, we're arriving to your in box with an "evening edition": of the CW Newsletter -- and I must say, it's so good to see you here. Thank you for joining us. This week at the shop we've been busy moving things around, shaking things up, getting ready for new collections and project samples to arrive.It's refreshing! A new season means new styles, new inspiration and new opportunities... and we have lots to look forward to. Come see!
Have you visited our modern quilting loft lately? Oh, but you must! Especially if you're a Heather Ross fan! We have not one, but two fun projects featuring her iconic fabric. On the sofa you'll find the freshest gingham quilt made by Angie Pope using the new Country Mouse collection and quilted by Dorene Cole. Let's take a closer look...
Seriously sweet, Heather Ross delivers with her latest illustrated visions, always reminiscent of pages from your favorite childhood storybook. Our Country Mouse Gingham Kit includes instructions for this quick and easy, beginner-friendly, quilt as well as four fantastic Heather Ross prints for piecing this 55" x 65" quilt top and binding for $85.99 (sorry, fresh garden tomatoes not included -- though if you ask nicely, I might share).
Hanging above the sofa, you'll find another adorable throw quilt featuring Heather Ross' fabrics, this time from her Lucky Rabbit collection. Cymoni Whatcott used the Chain Reaction pattern by Cluck Cluck Sew to frame favorite prints from the line. We only have a few kits left for this 56" x 68" cutie! Grab one online (here) or in-store before they're gone. P.S. This collection is fast becoming hard to find!
And how about this gorgeous rainbow of color? In the Garden is a new, must have collection by Jennifer Moore of Monaluna for Windham Fabrics. We have big plans for this gorgeous line so stay tuned for a kits and an exciting new class!
