NEW FABRIC !!!!!
From Andover - Rochester - Pheasant Print - This gorgeous print is the one left off of last week's shipment of Rochester. I see a medallion quilt in my future!

From Andover - Laundry Basket Linen Textures - 12 more pieces of this luscious basics line, one more shipment expected in June.

From Andover - Opposites Attract - Black and whites are always in style...they work with almost anything.

Spooky Log Cabin - 52" x 52" - "glow in the dark" Halloween  log cabin made with Faboolous Fun fabric designed by Greta Lynn for Kanvas/Benartex Fabrics. Kit includes fabric for top of quilt, binding and pattern by Benartex

 
NEW NOTIONS !!!!!
Magical Thread Easy - Thread needles easily with magnifier & light. Can even be used on a table top.

 
Amodex Stain Wipe - I found this interesting, individual stain wipes that remove Sharpie, ink, crayon, scuffs, and wine. As well as nail polish, paint, cosmetics, oil and tar! Cant wait to try it!


 
Antique Ruler Twill Tape - Back in stock this has so many uses...I like to tie it to my scissors as identification and so I can wear them around my neck.
 
Stripology Ruler - From Creative Grids this ruler will reduce your rotary cutting time by 75%. Make your own pre cuts from the full width of fabric.

 
Stripology Squared Mini - The smaller version of of the above ruler can be used on 6.5" units. Also use it to square up half square and quarter square triangles.


 
NEW PATTERNS !!!!!
Cardinals - I have been seeing this pattern on Pintrest for weeks and find the little birds so sweet I would like to give them a try. Can be made in two sizes 48"X52" or 58"X60". The birds could easily be adapted to other birds.


 
Framed - We love jelly roll patterns, this one uses 2 jelly rolls and 4 yards of background


 
Fall Window - This is a panel pattern, also very popular. Takes one standard panel to make this sharp quilt, with a bit of piecing to make it look special.



 
NEW MAGAZINE !!!!!
Quilt Sampler - Spring Summer issue - Once again has the top quilt shops from coast to coast and includes 10 projects. Just in time for your summer travel.
