We will have this quilt kit available soon - sign up to receive notificcation as soon as it becomes available!

Meriwtheris designer Amy Gibson of Stichery Dickory Dock’s first collection with Windham Fabrics. This bright, floral fabric is perfect for making unique, modern quilt blocks using Amy’s book, The Quilt Block Cookbook. Amy’s secret to all that she does? She isn’t sure, but suspects it probably lies somewhere between an incredibly supportive husband, faith, and good coffee.
See the Meriwether Lookbook for more sewing inspiration!

We have yardage and Fat Quarter Bundles, as well as the Briar and Bramble Quilt Kit coming soon!

Fabric Bucket Tutorial from Design Sponge

These botanical beauties in Andover's Encyclopedia Terrestria are reminiscent of nineteenth-century
pen and ink floral illustrations. The subtle grays against a soft cream background further enhance the feeling of looking through an old book. The fabrics are digitally printed in order to achieve the extra fine detail.

Anna Maria Horner tells us what It is "to revitalize some of my all-time favorite floral prints in their best-selling original form, and some with all new colorations sure to inspire a fresh look for timeless art! Floral Retrospective is a concise 16-piece collection, which sits beautifully alongside so many other styles of fabrics from vintage to modern, and everything in between. Once upon a time, these prints lived in separate collections; however mixing as one collection is what I love most about designing fabric and quilting."


Peeks from Anna - Floral Retrospective looks great with Loominous Yarn Dyes!

Rainbow Overalls Dress

So I LOVE overalls, i adore them on the kids and I have a pair myself. I had this plans of drafting my own pattern of *proper* overalls because all the patterns I had seen weren’t really the style I wanted. I did a *fancy* version for my Bright & Bold lil luxe mini collection but I didn’t have any *traditional* ones.

and then, i don’t even know how, i found the I Dig Dungarees as soon as they were released. I didn’t even know the designer, but after buying them (right away) I really, really, recommend Made by Jack’s Mum (i haven’t tried any other patterns from MBJM but if you’re sewing for a boy I would really check out the others!). The attention to detail in both the pattern and the instructions is something I super appreciate when I’m trying to sew things that are more complicated than a pair of shorts or a shirt.
