New Product Alert - Foundation Aurifil Thread Boxes!

Well, we promised more products and here is just another one of the new things we will be rolling out over the next couple months! We are now carrying these rainbow-licious Aurifil Thread Boxes.

Now onto our only paper-pieced project for our Spring patterns, Darby Road! This fun take on hexagons is pieced in half-hexagons and sewn together in rows, so there are no y-seams or tricky construction. Darby Road is a fun pattern to experiment with color placement and create a plethora of different looks!

Argyle - Free Summer Block Party Pattern

Summer, summer, summertime! Welcome to my day on the Summer Block Party hosted by fabric.com

When I originally sketched up my block for this shindig, I wasn't thinking anything to do with argyle. I was thinking mountains, trees and reflection - but then came the color scheme! The more I played with it, the more it resembled argyle, so I embraced it! (But, colored differently, this could definitely look like mountains, trees and such!)
