I look forward to seeing what you’ve been working on, hearing what you’ve been learning, and showing you my latest projects!
The Art Gallery Fabrics colour card for their line of PURE Solids has arrived.
If you pre-ordered it, it is yours for $35.
Remaining copies of the colour card are priced at $55 including postage in Canada, or $50 in person pick-up.
Why do you care about these solids?
Here’s an example of the feedback I’m getting from my customers who are trying out these solids…
Two projects done by Alex wandered into my studio this past month.
One of them was a beautifully bright log cabin that managed to not seem overwhelming to me. Alex loves colour and is able to use bright vivid colours in a way that is somehow not at all jarring for even timid colour folks like me!
The second photo she showed me was of a 3-D pattern that managed to be subtle… which I think is a real trick to accomplish.
The quilt photos are here and offered by Alex for your inspiration!
A week ago I received a lovely email from Sally McK, a customer through Etsy who lives in the mid-western USA. Here’s some of what she had to say…
Finally, I’d like to share some photos of the 7 half-yard fabric bundles that Susan, Maria and I have been putting together. They are designed to kick-start a new quilt project, offering lovely palettes for you to use as a base for your next quilt.
The solids bundles are $55, and the ones containing linens and printed cottons are $70.
And of course they are on sale for three weeks in October.
That, my friends, is all the news from here. I’m hoping you are all well and am sending my best wishes for a happy family Thanksgiving, with lots of turkey and lots of laughter!
