February Variables

This month is quite unpredictable ... sometimes a blizzard, sometimes an early spring thaw ... a groundhog, some Valentines, president Washington's and Lincoln's birthdays ... 

Unpredictable weather is very unsettling, so to soothe my soul, I went back to a fabric line I had begun with when the shop opened ... Henry Glass's Folio print. Wonderful feeling, amazing color range, and suitable for so many different projects.  Cut into blocks, or strips, with our new Stripology rulers: I now also have in stock the replaceable arrows that are designed to help you manage different size blocks and strip cutting.  See this video to understand their power:

Here are the gorgeous bolts of Folio by Henry Glass ... there are only ten yards on each bolt, so come early to select your favorite blender colors... I'm thinking of flowers ... see the comments in the image captions (and remember, you can make the images larger by clicking on them.)


a beautiful range of colors .. which flowers can we make?

Beautiful red roses with pretty green foliage...


Begonias? Marigolds?

Lilacs, Hydrangeas?

Bluebells? Hyacinths? Daffodils?

I've salted the remaining patches on the driveway, and the heat is on, and the fabrics are ready for your eyes and your hands ... I look forward to seeing you soon! Please share this invitation with your friends and fellow quilters ... let them know of the QQ discounts,  and tell them that they are welcome to come by and explore the nooks and crannies of Quilters' Quarters. 

Happy February ~ March and Spring are up next!

Happy 2020

So many sweet, local birds!
This month begins the end of the second decade in this challenging century... let's celebrate having made it this far by making something with these pretty new fabrics that were supposed to arrive in September but finally made it this week.  "First Frost" is the name of the deer and bird fabrics ... the blender firs are meant to enhance those. How the Jungle Animals joined this group is a mystery, but they will delight the young ones in your gift list.


One quilter commented that these would be great in a Three Yard Quilt.
I have a book of patterns in the shop, titled
EASY PEASY 3 YARD QUILTS!
See the video for 3 yard quilts at this link.

We have been seeing more deer in our neighborhoods, as their natural habitats are being encroached upon by human development. This fabric is part of a new line that features wild animals decorated with multicolor embellishments ...



This is a bolt of small and large blocks

And this accompanying bolt  has a 15" repeat.
Here are the two bolts of wild animals in technicolor that came in a few months ago; they remind me of the new deer bolts:

Technicolor elephant shares a panel bolt with the zebra.

And both the Zebra block and the Elephant block are enhanced
by the shabby-chic, multi-color bolt.
And here is the sixth bolt ... the stowaway print of jungle animals! 

Asia and Africa, both!
All of these beautiful fabrics share nature's beauty, and all are from Quilting Treasures. The standard retail price is $11.60 per  yard, but everyone who shops at Quilters' Quarters gets at least a 20% discount, and sometimes more. 

Thank you for following Quilters' Quarters ... Please share this email or home page link with your quilting friends ... I look forward to seeing you again!
