Before I get into all of the new and restocked fabrics this week, I'll just post this little reminder.
I will be away the entire month of August so I will not be doing any dyeing or shipping that month. If you need fabric be sure to get it in July. If you need anything custom dyed I will need to have your order by July 12.
I have two new Stash Packs and one new Gradient for you today. I was doing a lot of dyeing the past 2 weeks!
I used to have a brown gradient called Coffee and Cocoa. I wanted to change it up and soften it a bit so I've upgraded my beverage choice from Cocoa to Espresso with this new gradient.
I know that Stash Packs are mostly used by art quilters so I try to keep two different green packs in stock. Spring Greens is a set of yellow-based bright greens. This new pack is Autumn Greens and is a gold-based set of green fabrics. These are deeper, richer greens than the Spring Greens. Both are equally useful depending on the look you are going for.
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. 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.
The second new Stash Pack is called Pebbles. The thought behind this one was to provide a range of "colors" that can be used for roadways, rocks, groundcover and other landscape elements.
Gradients Back In Stock
In addition to the new fabrics there are 4 gradients back in stock.
Whew! That was a lot of work!
