WHAT'S NEW!!!!!
FABRIC!!!!!
From Robert Kauffman

Let's Go - This is a small line just big enough to make a special quilt for a special child. There is a panel with a stretch of highway and some vehicles that can be made to drive on the road. We also have a kit called On The Road using this line. It finishes 56"X68" and the pattern rating is beginner. Binding is included.
 
Science Fair - For all my nerdy friends and maybe some brainy college students??
 

Kona Solids - We have restocked some of our basic solids.

 

From Moda




Spotted Pre Cuts - This has has been such a popular line that we decided to reorder the precuts. We know you love them!
NEW MAGAZINE!!!
American Patchwork and Quilting -  Lots of great info on creating your dream sewing space, and lots of fall projects

 

Simple Whatnots 9 Club

Kim Diehl has announced the next series of Simple Whatnots 9 , and I just couldn't wait to share the projects and new fabric line Esther's Heirloom Shirtings. Fabrics won't arrive until December and club will not be able to start before January. I am excited to see that this line has more light colored fabrics than previously, and the projects are wonderful, and what I always expect from Kim Diehl. She does not disappoint!
