 Happy Monday everyone!  It was so fun seeing you all last week at our shop hop party!  Shop hops are such a great way to check out what’s new in your favorite shop and get to know some of your other local shops.  I hope you were able to make it around to a few of your favorites last week! 

New knit fabrics from The Fabric Mill!

I wanted to show you some of the newest knits we have in stock.  These are all 60” wide and they are lycra blended with different fabrics – some are rayon, some with modal (a rayon), some with soft poly and some with cotton. 

These are great for skirts!

Twice As Nice

Twice As Nice (Riley Blake) is here!  Hmmm I’m thinking that top print would make a fantastic apron - or maybe a new tote bag?  Decisions, decisions....

Fall Fabrics from Quilting Treasures

I’m really enjoying all of the fall colored fabrics that are available right now!  I wanted to show you this line from Quilting treasures called Life’s A Hoot.

I’m considering sewing some new placemats for our Thanksgiving feast this year and I’m thinking that these fabrics will be perfect:

What would YOU do with Life’s A Hoot??  A table runner?  Fall-ish wall hanging?  A fall quilt for those chilly nights?

High Street

As promised, I’m bringing you a closer look at High Street from Moda.  This line is full of lovely, saturated colors.  I think the greens and grays are my favorite!

The designer of High Street (Stephanie Carter) has a free project idea and tutorial using High Street.  These quick and easy key chains would make a nice little gift – or even stocking stuffer!
