I've made the firefly as part of Elizabeth's Forest Friends quilt and the large one is so cute too. It should go together pretty fast for a darling quilt.

Lots of new stuff to share... and a giveaway.

Hey Everyone,

So many things to wrap up here and so many fun projects happening...

I went to Sewtopia and got to take classes with Denyse Schmidt and Elizabeth Hartman. I also got to see where the women of Cotton + Steel create their magic. I feel so fortunate and blessed to be able to do things like this....

Here is my Francis Firefly quilt... so in love with these colors.

 This is the pattern and it will be out for sale this summer.



Here is my start of my Free Wheeling Single Girl... I am not making any more rings but I am going to add a top and left side border to it. I want it to hang on my wall at home.

 This shows the colors better.


We also got to see Cotton + Steel's new fabrics at their studio. How much do we love that? I had decided to wait until I could see the prints before I bought them this time and I can officially say the ones that are coming this summer are my favorites so far. We were not allowed to take pictures but I promise you don't want to miss them.

Here are some photos from their sweet studio in Atlanta:





Since I have gotten back from the trip we have had lots of new fabrics arrive...

Here is Alison Glass' Handcrafted Patchwork this picture does not do it justice the colors are out of this world!


We also got Lavish by Katarina Roccella. This gorgeous collection is so sumptuous. Of course you can't go wrong with Art Gallery Fabrics. So soft and drapey.


Then we got two Christmas Collections... I know it is only April but what can we do this is when they send them. You could get a big head start on your Christmas sewing.

Cotton + Steel's Garland is so adorable it matches perfectly with last year's Tinsel and has some smaller scale prints. I am having a hard time deciding my favorite print but the little Reindeer are precious.


We also received Violet Craft's beautiful Christmas on Brambleberry Ridge which contains some of my all time favorite prints that Violet has done in some of her collections... reprinted in holiday colors.


And by Thursday Lizzy House' Whisper Prints should be in ... here is a picture that Andover published of them:

What a lovely lot of low volume prints right? You can purchase them now and we will ship them as soon as they are in.

See I told you there was a lot :)

Here is the Giveaway!

See the brown paper bags in everyone's hands in this picture?
They are filled with goodies from Cotton + Steel. Scraps and stickers and tattoos... and I have some fun things from the swag bag from Sewtopia to add to it. You can win the bag and it's contents by leaving a comment below telling me what you like best about all of the new things I showed. I will draw a winner next Tuesday. Good Luck!

Giveaway is now closed.
