We've been really busy finalizing the clues and cutting fabric packs for our Mystery Quilt program, which will start shipping on April 15th. We still have a few spots left for anyone who'd like to join us for this fun program! There are more details down further in this newsletter.
The Road Home - Coming Soon!
We just received 11 big boxes from Wilmington ~ the batiks for The Road Home BOM quilt ~ and I must say these fabrics are beautiful!
We will start cutting kits the week of April19th and plan to have all initial blocks and complete kits shipped by the end of April. We still have a handful of spaces left in this program. We offer Queen (we've made it larger than the original pattern) as well as an exclusive King size!
A Sneak Preview . . .

We saw the actual Northcott Illusions sample BOM Quilt today and are thrilled to be able to offer this program to you at the end of the year. I haven't worked out the details, so there's no way to sign up today, but I hope to have it all figured out soon so you can secure your spot!

The quilt as shown is 88" x 112" and we will be offering an exclusive 112" x 112" quilt as well. The fabrics in this quilt are batiks, and some are metallic batiks! This is a truly awesome quilt, and we will also offer several choices of outer border colors! The backing is a wide batik, exclusive to Illusions BOM club members.I'm looking forward to getting the fabric images to show you! ~ Marsha
For Frond Fanatics . . .

Stephanie Brandenburg, owner of Frond Design Studios and artist extraordinaire, has designed a new collection for Northcott ~ Daydreamin'. And . . . you guessed it, she's painted a gorgeous sunflower as part of this collection!

Click on the Sunflower image below to see the YouTube video that shows Stephanie's process of creating her new Sunflower. It's amazing! Northcott then takes the paintings and turns them into spectacular fabric!
We haven't seen the collection (except for the sunflower in the video) and won't be able to order it for several weeks. We expect it to sell out quickly, so our plan is to put the images online as soon as we can get them, and accept pre-orders for these vibrant panels and fabrics. Stay tuned!

New artist Stephanie Ryan’s “Awakenings” collection for Wilmington Prints features watercolor florals in pale-to-medium-dark blues, grays, violets, & white. Here's a look at the fabrics in the collection ~ we also have other Wilmington basics and wide backings that coordinate.
Happy Thoughts Additions

A great background is hard to find. Sarah Maxwell created new colorations to work with a broader array of prints, making this collection the ultimate go-to background print. We love these tiny prints!
Dapple Dots

Welcome to the Next Generation of Marcus Fabrics AGED MUSLIN! With the look of an authentic hand-dyed fabric at a fraction of the cost, with a random dot pattern that ensures no two bolts are the same. The update is the circle motif, so important in modern design across all categories. And yes, you need every collectible color!
Raindrops & Sunshine

From the art of Anne Rowan, this “Raindrops & Sunshine” collection has happy rainbows, rainbow-colored motifs, & encouraging phrases.
Color Theory
