So much fabric news!
Fabric of the Week
The fabric of the week this week is the Venetian Shades Pack and it's on sale 20% off through Sunday! Shades Packs are dyed when ordered so there's no limit to what you can buy. If you order multiple quantities it comes as one cut. For example, order 2 quantities for 1/2 yard cuts. Orders received by Wednesday morning (EST) will be shipped by July 2. All other orders will be shipped July 9. Venetian coordinates with the Coleus Gradient.
New Gradient - Coffee and Cocoa!
One day recently my friend Estelle was visiting and showing me a new art quilt that she was making. It was her pieced gradient effect in that quilt that inspired this new gradient that goes from black to medium brown. Coffee and Cocoa is the result of that inspiration.
When I dye the ice dyed Crystals I add some fabric to the bottom of the bin to catch the runoff dye. These have become my personal favorite fabrics. I used one as the border of my Maine Quilt and another became the focus fabric for the Antelope Canyon quilt that I'm making now. The next quilt I have planned is a Lone Star variation and one of these will be the background for my star.
I've got 7 new ones in the shop this week. All of these are more than 1 yard so they are great for building a palette around.
When I made Antelope Canyon I dyed 3 other coordinating fabrics to go with the Galaxy. I can do the same for you if one of these speaks to you for your next quilt project!
Gradients back in stock!

You have been busy! The Venetian shade fabric is so pretty! The new Coffee and Cocoa is stunning and so different.

I just received your Fabric of the Week notice and saw the mention of your Maine Quilt. For several reasons, I hadn't kept up lately with the quilting and sewing blogs I like to follow. But I clicked on the link and there it was. I love that quilt! It brought back many childhood memories of the quilt my grandmother (I'm 75) had made, likely from flour sacks, and given our family. We used and abused it on our beds, on the floor to make pallets to sleep on when cousins came to visit, to make forts, for picnics on the river, and for trips to the beach. Eventually my mother covered its faded, tattered remains with some new, uninteresting fabric, to make a "comforter", which was also used and abused until it met its end. I've since tried to describe the piece-shapes to quilting friends of mine, but they couldn't put a name to the pattern. And here it is - Apple Core! Thanks so much.
