Pine Forest Gradient is the fabric of the week this week. For 2 days (or until supplies last) this fabric is on sale 25% off! If you like it catch it before it sells out.
This week I'm also excited to reveal a brand new gradient. When Mom and I visited New Mexico last month we loved the traditional adobe homes of the Taos Pueblo and that inspired this new gradient.
The Fabric of the Week this week is Eminence. This is Shades Pack of 5 shades of a beautiful purple. Eminance is related to Regalia and Eggplant. Regalia is one shade grayer than Eminence and Eggplant is one shade grayer than Regalia.
Through Thursday, this fabric is 20% off or $18. That's a $4.50 saving! Shades Packs are dyed when ordered so there's no limit to what you can buy. If you order multiple quantities it comes as one cut. For example, order 2 quantities for 1/2 yard cuts. Ordered received by Wednesday morning (EST) will be shipped June 19. Ordered placed after Wednesday morning will be shipped June 26.

Starting today I'm going to have a new weekly feature for the summer. There will be a "Fabric of the Week". One fabric each week will be on sale for 48 hours. It might be a Gradient, a Stash Pack or a Shades Pack. In some cases it will apply to supplies on hand and in others I'll be dyeing to order. If you would like to receive a weekly email announcing that week's Fabric of the Week, sign up for that newsletter here. You can easily unsubscribe at any time.
I'm kicking things off with the Emerald City Gradient. You can tell that it's one of my favorites because I made the quilt below with it. This is my summer bed quilt. I even took it to the beach with us to sleep under every night.
For 48 hours (or while supplies last), Emerald City will be on sale for 25% off! That's $6.75/half yard instead of the normal $9.

In other news, two of your favorite gradients are back in stock!
Let's start with the big news.
Next week is giveaway week!
We all need vacations and that includes taking a blog vacation. I've decided that I'm taking a blog vacation next week but instead of leaving it empty I'm having one of my giveaway weeks. That means there are 6 prizes, one each Monday - Saturday. be sure to check in and enter every day. There's going to be fabric and glass and some products from my favorite fusible web company, Mistyfuse!
Now on to shop news. I've been doing a lot of custom dyeing lately so I only have 2 new fabrics but they are 2 of the most popular ones.
Color Wheel Warm is part of the Color Wheel Basics collection of fabrics. These are all based on the 10-step Munsell Color Wheel. There are 2 gradients and 10 Shades Packs and they are all on sale every day.
Sassafras is, hands down, the most popular gradient and today it's back in stock!
***Shipping note: Fabrics ordered May 21 - 29 will be shipped May 30. Custom orders (including Shades Packs) will be shipped June 5.
New in the shop this week are a number of 1 yard cuts. I call these Stars because they are one of a kind in color and texture and can't be recreated.
Patricia Caldwell used a fabric from the Stars collection for the background of her Moonlight Leaves quilt.
Leslie McNeil used one as the background for her Sun Blossom Pony art quilt.
Here are the newest additions to the Stars fabric collection.
Because friends are dropping off empty bottles by the bag full! That's good for us. I have more bottles to play with and you have more to choose from. People find so many uses for these trays. They are great as appetizer trays for wine lovers. My brother uses one as a spoon rest. We use one as a key catcher. Since I eat hummus almost every day for lunch I cold use one of the double cavity as a lunch dish with a handle. They also make great gifts and now there are even more in the shop to choose from.
Check them all out in the shop. This year, for each one I sell I'm donating $5 to my local food pantry.
***By the way, all orders (fabric and glass) placed after today will be shipped next Tuesday. Custom dyed fabric orders will be shipped May 15.
Before I share the new Stash Packs I want to mention that I will not be dyeing next week. If you need anything custom dyed (including Shades Packs) get your orders in today! Otherwise it will not be dyed until May 10.
Today I can show you where some of my dyeing inspiration is coming from. Things are very green around here lately as you can see in this photo of visitors that we had this weekend. We know that gees nest in the river behind our house but we don't see them visiting the pond every year. These chicks obviously just hatched and it was fun to watch them swimming around in the pond.
I've got 2 new Stash Packs this week. My green Stash Packs are the most popular so this time I decided to create 2 of them: Spring Greens and Autumn Greens. These will give you a very wide variety of greens for your landscape quilts.
Spring Greens are the bright greens of new foliage.
Autumn Greens has the lovely deep and golden greens at the end of the season. You can see these and all of the other Stash Packs in the shop.
You might recognize the name from a previous Gradient. I felt it was time to update the pattern and I am thrilled with the new version of Morning Glory. This one is a little lighter and a little pinker than the last version. I hope you will like it too!
Also back in stock this week is Sea and Sky. I used this gradient as the background for both of the quilts below.
Thank you for all of the lovely comments and feedback on my Great Wall. It was a lot of work to get all of the photos edited and the page written but someday I'll have to move from this house and I wanted a good record of the wall. Now I'm on to starting another section. But for today I'm back to dyeing and I have 2 new Stash Packs to share.
I love the Stash Packs. They are the most fun to dye (although the least fun to iron and pack) and they offer endless possibilities for our projects. They are great in scrap quilts like my Rainbow Quilt and also great for landscape art quilters who need lots of variety but not large pieces.
That's all for this week but I'm in the dye studio today working on more new fabrics.
I designed this gradient for a quilt Mom and I are making for a wedding gift. It's inspired by my Grandmother's iris garden. I liked it so much that I decided that I want to have it in the shop. I'm calling it Misty Morning.
Tadpole is a new 2-yard piece in minty green with lots of color texture throughout.
There are several gradients back in stock.
