New Stash Pack!
I'm feeling the cold and gloom of winter this month so I had to bring some visual warmth to the dye studio last week and here's the result. It was great therapy! This pack was inspired by a previous pack in similar colors but once it was done it reminded me of some flowers I loved in my Grandmother's garden. I always loved the velvety texture of these particular flowers. It was many years later that I learned that those flowers were called Celosia so that's the name of this new Stash Pack. Celosia Stash Pack is a blend do purples, oranges and reds to bring a lot of variety to your fabric garden.
Every Stash Pack has 10 fat eighths of fabrics in a variety of color combinations and color texture. I love them for scrappy style quilts but I think most people use them for elements in art quilts. You can use them any way you want!
Each Stash Pack has 5 streaky fabrics and 5 mottled fabrics. Here are larger views of 6 of the fabrics. The fabrics you receive will not look exactly like these but they will be these colors and general textures. I dye 2 yards of each fabric in the collection and the nature of dyeing fabric like this means that there's lots of variety over that 2 yards. Each fat eighth is a gem on it's own. There are so many possibilities for fussy cutting applique or landscape elements.
Back In Stock
More warmth and sunshine is back with the Trumpet Vine Gradient. It's a hot gradient from deep gold to red and would work great for flower petals, autumn leaves or a sunrise background for your next landscape.
Fabric of the Week
The fabric of the week this week is the Poppy Shades Pack. This color is being discontinued so get it while it lasts! For this pack, if you order multiples you will receive multiple fat quarter packs, not continuous yardage.
