What's New at Sew Inspired

Well, it's been a month since our last post - and with good reason! Our beloved blogger welcomed her bundle of Joy on December 1st and we couldn't be more thrilled about the newest Sew Inspired baby! However, the fabric keeps arriving, the events keep coming and until the new mom is up to blogging from home here's an attempt to update you on all that's new!

First, the Timeless Treasures Tonga batik group, Topaz, arrived yesterday amidst all the holiday hubbub. This 20-piece group of brown, rose, teal and green has us daydreaming of lounging by the water and long walks in the woods.
The Moda groups keep coming - it's been a flurry of florals with the Windermere yardage for our newest Block of the month, Garden Grove, the half-collection of Hyde Park florals and an offering of Color Daze we're planning a Cats' Cradle Catapult quilt with.

The newest Kaffe Fasset Design rolls - in Winter and Spring color-ways - have arrived along with more yardage and his newest book, Heritage Quilts. And, Anna Maria Horner's Fibs & Fables, inspired by her interest in and love for vintage fairytale illustrations. Our favorite is the "Enchanted" landscape.

Because the fabric keeps arriving... and we need to make room for the new... we'll be holding our annual don't make us inventory it year-end clearance sale right after the Christmas holiday! Don't miss it!
