Coming soon!

Here I am on a lazy, hot afternoon...comfy indoors while outdoors the plants wilt and critters pant.  I'll get back to my sewing room in a minute but wanted to share this with you...


Small cuts arrived last week.


Blacks...great mourning prints

Soft Browns


I have a plan, just need time to implement! So, stay posted.  I'm hoping the fabric group arrives in shops end of this month, or maybe August.

I think the desire to sew has returned...took it long enough.  I attended our annual Patchwork Diva quilt retreat last week with fellow Divas and friends.  It was a wonderful respite.  Even though only an hour or so from home, it felt far away.  Sewing with friends did me a world of good.  Thanks girls!

Until next time...


  1. Looks like another great fabric line. How exciting. Love those blacks, mourning prints and indigos. Very nice. Glad you were able to get away.

  2. The fabric looks wonderful - can't wait to see it in person!

  3. Betsy glad you're sewing mojo is returning :-) love the new fabrics.

  4. Surrounding yourself with fellow quilters who are also friends can do a world of good!

  5. Love, love, love the new fabric!!!

  6. Oh these look wonderful! I can't wait till they hit the shelves. Very pretty :)

  7. I am curious about the history of the mourning fabrics. Would fabric from mourning clothing eventually be used in quilts? Were black fabrics used always right after a death, then as time went on, other dark color ways chosen for those in mourning? Is there such a quilt in the late 1800 that would be considered a mourning quilt, made from mourning clothing? I am curious of the history of the line of fabrics in the mourning colors. Thank you, lovely fabrics!

  8. Love this line of fabric. DO you sell them in FQ bundles? Love the purples :)
