Outside the Lines

Introducing a new feature,  Outside the Lines.   At the beginning of each month I will be posting photos of a selection of fabrics that go well together that are not all from the same fabric line.    I have noticed that since the dawn of the precut and jellyroll many quilters are making quilts using only fabrics from the package.  While these quilts are guaranteed to match,  they often match so well that they lose some sparkle.   A walk around your local quilt show and you can easily pick out the ones that are just that bit too homogenous.       I want to help you have some more color confidence and showcase our fabrics at the same time.    So for the first post of each month I will put together a fabric collection that goes outside the lines.   It will be photographed and posted with a project or two that it would be suited to.    If you decide to make one of the projects and get all your fabrics and book or pattern from us and let us post a photo within that month we will give you a free spool of Mettler silk finish thread.   Your choice of color.

March Outside the Lines

This cheerful grouping of fabrics is a breath of fresh air for Spring/Easter.   The focus print is 20% off during March.

The suggested pattern is our very own CIMG_3120lass on Demand called Smarties.    It just so happens that we are running an introductory group session on March 26th at 10:30 am.   The workshop on demand will regularly cost $30.00 but if you register by the 21st you can take half off that fee, making it only $15.00     I spent that much last time I visited Starbucks.       We used different fabrics for our sample of smarties,  but it works with these colors too.   You could even use that grassy green for the background and call yours Egg Hunt.
