Stash Packs are 20% off this week!
I'm having fun with my Hunter's Star die making veterans quilts. These quilts finish 48 x 60 and need 20 12" blocks. As I finish the first one I started planning the second one. I was doing a little math and realized that fat eighths would be perfect and that means that Stash Packs are perfect!
Since I'm using Stash Packs this week I thought you might want to get some for your own project and there's no better time than when they are 20% off.
Use code STASH20 at checkout for the discount to apply.
I'm using Crossroads and Earthworks to get the 20 fabrics that I need for this quilt. The background will be pale gray. I can dye any color you want in yardage if you need background fabric for any project.
If you have the Accuquilt Hunter Star die this photo shows how perfectly a fat eighth, folded in 4ths, fits this die.
Stash Packs also make great gifts! Start your holiday shopping with this great sale.
Here are a few other projects that customers have made with Stash Packs.
I've started working on my Christmas postcards so I've moved on from Autumn project ideas and I'm full on in Christmas mode. That brought to mind my favorite red, Ruby. It's got just a hint of purple in it so it falls between the candy apple red of Color Wheel Red and the deep rustic red of Claret.
Ruby is on sale 20% off through Sunday! Maybe it will inspire a holiday project for you.
Morning Glory is back in stock!
Morning Glory Gradient is back in stock this week. It's been used in several customer projects but I am particularly taken with the way that John Anderson used the gradient to great effect in this bargello. Of course it would work with any gradient and really simplifies the bargello process.
Fabric of the Week
The fabric of the week this week is the Thrive Gradient. It's 20% off through Sunday. Christine Cetrulo used the Thrive Gradient for her whole cloth art quilt, Mother Earth.
New Gradient - South Pacific
I'm trying to embrace lighter value gradients because you keep telling me that you prefer them for landscape backgrounds. One of the most popular is Southwest. I thought it was time for some soft greens and blue greens. I asked on social media for name ideas and PK Solberg suggested South Pacific. It was perfect! Click on the image to take a closer look or order a piece for your next project.
Galaxies are on sale!
Galaxies are fabrics that are 2 yards and longer that are produced during ice dyeing sessions. I love to use them as feature fabric or borders as I did with my Antelope Canyon and Maine quilts. This week all Galaxy fabrics are on sale 20% off. Use coupon code GALAXY20 at checkout. I can always create a palette for you using one of the Galaxies as the feature fabric.
Gradients Back In Stock
Several of your favorite gradients are back in stock this week!
Black and Gray Skies are the gradients that I'm using for background for my Loony Moony quilt along with moons made from Shibori Stash Packs.

New Shibori Stash Packs!
There are TWO new Shibori Stash Packs this week! Each pack has 8 fat eights. All of my shibori pieces are dyed twice for better color variation and intensity. These are the fabrics that I'm using for my Loony Moony project. The moons are 5" finished on an 8" finish background. Each fat eighth of Shibori will make 3 moons. I'm using the Black Gradient for my background.
If you love Shibori and want to have a lot of variety, these Stash Packs are the best way to get your stash built. There are now 3 to choose from.
Shades Packs that is....
The news this week is all about Shades Packs, starting off with the fabric of the week. Eminence is a beautiful deep purple and it's 20% off through Sunday. This is my favorite purple. It's not a bright purple like a crayon purple. It's got just enough gray added to take the brashness out and make it just a bit more of an elegant purple.
Just in time for fall projects I've got two beautiful new colors of Shades Packs available. Cinnamon would also be a great color for doing monochromatic portraits in skin tones. Stephanie Wilds used a Shades Pack for her portrait called The Prophet Bert.
New Clearance Fabrics!
While you are shopping don't forget to check out the Clearance Section. I've added new fabrics this week!

So Many New Stars!
Stars are one yard cuts of one-of-a-kind colors. These are the fabrics that I play on creating new color combinations. I've added OVER 20 Stars this week! There are about 50 in stock now. Maybe there's one in just the color that you need for your next project.

Gradients Back in Stock
A two week vacation is a wonderful thing and I'm lucky that I am able to take that much time. I highly recommend a 2 week break even if it's a "staycation". That extra week allows you to really mentally escape and relax. But the downside is that it takes a week to get myself back in gear! I think I'm now mostly caught up including restocking these 2 popular gradients.
All Gradients on sale!
To celebrate the shop being open again all gradients are 20% off this week! Use coupon code GRADIENT20 at checkout for the discount to be applied. Discount applies to in stock Gradients and the sale ends Sunday. Get your favorites while they are in stock!
Shop schedule announcement
Due to an unplanned trip this week and upcoming vacation, I will not be in the dye studio again until September! There's lots of fabric in the shop that can be shipped right away but no custom orders until September.
If you need something this month please get your order in before August 15. After that no orders will ship until September 3.
Fabric of the Week
The fabric of the week this week is the Woodlands Gradient. Woodlands is one of the most popular gradients of all time and this week you can get it 20% off! Sale ends Sunday.
Rene Iannarelli used Woodlands in her art quilt Fall Marsh.
Last week I wanted to dye Shibori and I thought it might be fun to stick with the traditional blue colors for this batch. I couldn't be a total purist so there's a little black and purple added for accents. This variety of blues in the Saikai Stash Pack will be perfect for watery landscapes.
If fat eighths aren't big enough there are also two other half yard Shibori pieces in the shop.
