Lots of Gradients!
This week's newsletter is totally focused on Gradients. I've been working to get many of them back in stock. But, based on feedback from a customer, I decided to finally update the original Southwest Gradient and I love the change! The new version is brighter and has less brown in the middle. I really struggled with a creative name so I am just calling it New Southwest. Clever, huh?
Gradients Back in Stock
The last two weeks I've been focused on dyeing gradients (along with a bunch of custom orders). Fortunately Gradients are your favorite and mine. They are fun to dye to see how the colors blend together. I can also do custom gradients based your own palette. Sometimes the custom gradients are so awesome that they become new shop gradients. I'm always open to hearing your ideas for new gradients!
These 5 are back in stock this week.

This week all Galaxy fabrics are 25% off through Sunday!
Galaxies are very unique fabrics. They are dyed as a part of the ice dyeing process. That process creates very large scale prints and each piece is at least 2 yards in length. Some have symmetry and some have folded texture effects.
These fabrics can often be challenging to use. They are great for quilt backs but I prefer to use them as large scale elements in my quilts. My Maine quilt was made with sun printed fabrics cut into large apple core blocks. It was a Galaxy fabric that worked perfectly for the border blocks and binding. It pulled the whole quilt together.
You can get your own Galaxy fabrics this week at 25% off! Use code GALAXY25 at checkout.

Vicki, I saw that top gradient and thought "Tahiti Beach." Beautiful work!
