Etchings by Moda, Joel Dewberry Fabrics and Dear Sister

 This lovely line by 3 Sisters for Moda, Etchings has just arrived.  Besides the elegant cool gray's and blues and the classic Moda red, the fabric has a soft hand indicative of quality.  The Moda and United Notions website offers a free pattern for this line, Etchings pattern, as well as many others but Gen is currently making a Tying the Knot quilt using the pattern by The Pattern Basket with it. We'll show it off soon!
 One of our customers made this beautiful quilt using the Papillon line by Red Rooster and coordinating prints and Block Party Studio's Dear Sister pre-printed panels.  What a lovely gift this will make for her sister.
More gorgeous prints have arrived, these from the popular designer, Joel Dewberry for Free Spirit. What fresh, funky and energetic prints these are!  So many pattern possibilities come to mind including San Francisco Window Boxes by Sweet Jane's or some of the Take Five patterns. With prints like these, you don't need a complicated pattern--let the prints take center stage in a more simplified quilt pattern.
