Hurdles Quilt Pattern by Annela Hooey

Aneela Hoey's new line for Cloud 9 Organic Fabrics features 8 prints on quilting cotton and is "inspired by lazy day picnics, sun drenched flowers and everything good, simple and true." As Robert Frost writes, "nature's first green his gold, her hardest hue to hold." A similarly wistful Aneela Hooey longs for life to Stay Gold. We have yardage and Fat Quarter Bundles.

Don't miss the Free Quilt Pattern, and for more on the above, check out Aneela's line of patterns and some beautiful sewing inspiration from Cloud 9!

Meadowlark Sewing Inspiration with Teal and Finch

copyright Jen Dwyer-0604

Our design team is just in awe of these beautiful dresses sewn up by Jennifer of Teal and Finch fame. The vintage feel of the Ileana Dress Pattern by Compagnie M echos the classic storybook feel of our Meadowlark fabrics. A Flappy Coin Purse completes the sweet look for these fashionable sisters.
