Fabric of the Week
The Fabric of the Week this week is Thistle. Thistle is a surprisingly popular Shades Pack! Yes it's dull but it's wonderful for landscape quilts. It's a purple gray and often works better to represent gray than a pure cool gray. You can see that perfectly in Jeannette Ringuette's Florida Sunset.
This week Thistle is 20% off through Sunday.
I had a great time dyeing some new Shibori pieces last week. I used 8 of them to make a new Stash Pack. Each piece in the Shibori Stash Packs is a fat eighth. There are now 2 of these Stash Packs in the shop. They are great if you want a variety of colors but don't need huge pieces.
There are also 3 more half yard pieces. Check out all of the Shibori in the shop.
New Quilt Backs!
I made the first one of the monochromatic spirals as an accident and loved it so much that I used it for the back of my Lost My Marbles quilt. I like them because they are like a tie-dye spiral but they don't scream '70's. I've added 2 to the shop this week and they are each approximately 104 x 110. Check them out in the shop.
I'm Vicki Welsh and I've been making things as long as I can remember. I used to be a garment maker but transitioned to quilts about 20 years ago. Currently I'm into fabric dyeing, quilting, Zentangle, fabric postcards, fused glass and mosaic. I document my adventures here.
