Life's a beach
Well, it will be next week anyway!
I get very excited for my family beach week every year. It's great to spend time with my brothers and their families and it's always wonderful to kick off summer with a beach experience. I clearly had it on my mind in the dye studio last week as evidenced by today's fabrics. I also have a beach week for you. Read below for details.
Because I'll be away there will be no orders shipped next week. Any orders after May 20 will be shipped May 31.
New Stash Pack
A couple of weeks ago I dyed "the ocean" with the new Caribbean Stash Pack. This week I'm added in the sun! The Sunshine Stash Pack is 100% sun inspired.
Each 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. There are so many possibilities for fussy cutting applique or landscape elements.
Gradients Back In Stock
There are 4 Gradients back in stock this week and several of them would make great water or sky elements.
Fabric of the Week
The fabric of the week this week is a dye mistake! This was supposed to be Forest Canopy but I dyed that middle orange too dark. In my opinion, it still looks great. It makes me think of a forest fire. But it's not "right" so you can pick this one up for 25% off while it's still around. This one won't be coming back.
Beach Week Giveaway
While I'm away next week I'm leaving behind a daily giveaway for you to enter. There are 6 in all, one each day Monday through Saturday. I'm really excited about the prizes and I hope you will be too!

Beautiful fabric! Even the mistake is pretty. To me, the mistake fabric looks like fall leaves!

Wish I were headed to the beach with you. In the summers of my childhood, I spent a lot of time in Avalon, NJ back when there were few people around. After I had kids, we bought a little cottage in Ocean City, NJ. I love the smell of marsh, salt water, and the sounds of the birds. I hope you have great weather and a wonderful time.
