I’m smitten with the beauty of hand appliquéd quilts, and fell in love with the modern look of Carolyn Friedlander’s Collection Quilt as soon as I saw it. It’s now available to order as a kit, and we’ll also be running a class in the New Year for those who want some help with the techniques.
The Lovely Hunt collection by Lizzy House should be hitting our shelves in the first week of November. This was a big hit for pre-ordering, and some of the prints are already sold out. Get some while you still can.
Abacus is the beautiful new low volume collection from Alison Glass, also expected to arrive in the next day or two. The Abacus collection features 8 different designs, each available as a color on white as well as charcoal on white, for a total of 16 fabrics. Two of those fabrics are sampler panels of designs that feature a patchwork of up to 8 more designs, each a 5 inch square. There are two new mercury prints hidden among this collection as well as one print with metallic gold.
The Blueberry Park collection is a series of designs by Karen Lewis beautifully screen printed on Kona Cotton Solids. With 6 different designs printed on a wide range of Kona solids, we have 50 pieces of the collection ordered. It’s expected to start shipping to stores in December, and we’ve set up a club to make it easier to collect these gorgeous fabrics. Each month for 6 months, starting in January 2016, you’ll receive 8 colour coordinated fat quarters from the Blueberry Park collection. A nice way to spread out your buying over a few months.
This month’s Kona stash builder is the Stormy Spectrum — seems an appropriate choice for grey November skies. Save 10% on bundles and yardage all month long.
We’ve started running weekly specials in the shop, Friday to Thursday. Sometimes with a coupon, sometimes not. You will find the weekly special here — be sure to check back on Fridays to see what’s new.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are looming near the end of the month. Even though we live north of the border, Canadians have come to expect some great deals on that particular weekend. We’ve got some special savings planned, so be sure to follow us on Instagram @madaboutpatchwork or like us on Facebook to get the skinny on those sales!
There’s more news to share … in another post. I’ve gone on long enough for one day
