The fabric of the week this week is the Jenny Lake gradient! If you want some for your stash get it before it sells out. Through Sunday (or while supplies last) this fabric is 20% off or $7.20/half yard.
Here's a beautiful quilt made by Mirian Ahladas that uses the Jenny Lake gradient for the skyline background.

Leslie McNeil made her Sun Blossom Pony using her collage technique on a background of Barrier Island. You can get her pattern here.
Patricia Caldwell made Copper Trails using the Sunshine and Shadows gradient. In fact, she designed this gradient specifically for her project and I loved it so much that I added it to the shop permanently.
Rene Iannarelli used Woodlands in her Fall marsh quilt.
Sometimes I make mistakes.
OK, I actually make mistakes pretty often but usually I can hide them. Not this time. I made this one on a larger scale and you get to benefit from it!
I was dyeing fabric for the AQS Show last week and did some bad math mixing my dyes. Instead of a deep ruby red I got this beautiful deep rose red. I love it but it's too close to my Cranberry Red so I'm not going to carry it in the shop as a new color. Instead, you get the opportunity to get this Vintage Rose at 30% off.
Vintage Rose is on sale 30% off through Sunday! That's $15.75 for a yard and a quarter of fabric.
This is a one-time offer and it comes only as sets of fat quarters. Get yours while supplies last.

As you will see, last week's dyeing had a theme of reds and oranges with these 2 restocked gradients.
There's also a new Stars (one yard cut) fabric also in the same theme.

Yesterday I got 7 bins of fabric prepared for ice dyeing tomorrow and got these lovelies ironed. They are ready to sell at the AQS show in October. I arranged them like this to humor myself but I thing this is how I should display them in the booth too.
It's here! The most popular annual gradient sale. I've been busy the past several weeks restocking your favorites. But before we get to that let's talk about August dyeing and shipping schedules.
August is my big vacation month so there's going to be precious little dyeing time and abbreviated shipping schedules. If you need something custom dyed in August please get your order in this week. All other orders will be scheduled in September.
There will be no shipping August 17 - September 3.

New Gradient - Coffee and Cocoa!
One day recently my friend Estelle was visiting and showing me a new art quilt that she was making. It was her pieced gradient effect in that quilt that inspired this new gradient that goes from black to medium brown. Coffee and Cocoa is the result of that inspiration.
When I dye the ice dyed Crystals I add some fabric to the bottom of the bin to catch the runoff dye. These have become my personal favorite fabrics. I used one as the border of my Maine Quilt and another became the focus fabric for the Antelope Canyon quilt that I'm making now. The next quilt I have planned is a Lone Star variation and one of these will be the background for my star.
I've got 7 new ones in the shop this week. All of these are more than 1 yard so they are great for building a palette around.
When I made Antelope Canyon I dyed 3 other coordinating fabrics to go with the Galaxy. I can do the same for you if one of these speaks to you for your next quilt project!
