Busted. Raiding the "outs". This is Holly, awesome graphic designer, fabric designer and creator of rock star quilts - @thisiswhatido & @urbanchiks. The rejected strike-offs are being cleaned out so before they disappear, Holly is pulling out some to add to her stash. Some designers ask for their "offs" back, others don't so those are highly sought after. 😉
Essentially Yours? Absolutely! These are the new blenders and basics from Moda. Checks, Stripes, Dots and Microdots in an assortment of fresh colors and combinations that add "extra" to designer collections and scrap projects. They're so yummy that these fat quarters are Essentially Mine! But I might be sharing some soon... 😉

Essentially Yours. A new group of blenders and "basics" that mix with a variety of collections. Just in time for Christmas, this assortment of mixed red and green dots and stripes are great additions to some of our Christmas collections - or to add to your existing stash. Essentially Yours is showing to shops now and will be shipping next month.
Can I tell you a secret? This is one of my favorite times in the warehouse. As much as I like the ladies and gentlemen that work here, I love big spaces when they're quiet. It's as though the place is resting after a busy day, getting ready for the next round of energy and activity. Until tomorrow. 😉
Hushabye Hollow by Lydia Nelson of Dreamy Quilts - @dreamyquilts. A whimsical fabric tale of sweet animals in a wooded hollow getting ready for bed. Lydia's beautiful drawings make this collection magical - Hushabye Hollow is showing to shops now. Delivery in August.

Really - you get to pick the cover! The folks at Martingale - @martingaletpp - couldn't decide so they're leaving it up to you! The book will be published later this year. So tell us which one you like best. 😉
Thistle Farm by Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles - @lynnektq - is rich, warm and vibrant. And we love the mix of prints. Thistle Farm is on its way to shops this week.
It's just my "two cents" but this Tuppence is wonderful! Look at those yummy colors and sweet, pretty florals. This is the new collection from Shannon Gillman Orr - @ebmakery - showing to shops now and shipping in September. This much loveliness is nothing to trifle with. 😉
