Today's newsletter will be short and sweet as I had to get it out fast before I left for a quick overnight visit with a friend. So let's get straight to the news.
It took me three weeks to get the fabrics in this new Terrain Stash Pack just the way I wanted and I'm glad I took the extra time. I love this set of fabrics so much that I kept a pack for myself. It's a collection of browns and grays that are perfect for landscape elements. Stash Packs contain 10 fat eights (about 9" x 20") of fabric in a theme color. These fabrics are heavy on color texture to give you lots of options for fussy cutting specific elements.
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 all of them. 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.
Fabric of the Week
Staying with Stash Packs, the fabric of the week this week is the Sun Kissed Stash Pack. These bright golds and yellows might be just the contrast you need against the browns and grays of Terrain. You can see all of the Stash Packs in the shop.
That's all for this week. I'll see you back here next week with a new Gradient!
