Color Inspirations Club

New Color Inspirations every month... Build your solid stash with specially curated bundles of Cotton Supreme Classics! The August Palette, Yacht Club, includes shades of blues, tans and greens with a surprise pop of orange. You can purchase the palette in Fat Quarter bundles or half-yard cuts. Each Color Inspiration bundle includes ten pieces. Viv found two photos in her archives that captured the palette. First, a scene from an evening boat cruise off the coast of New England. And second, a picture of her friend Corey in Senegal, West Africa.

"The sailing picture seemed an obvious choice... but it's the patchwork in the child's shorts, his orange shirt and Corey's blue kaftan that reminded me of this month's palette." 

In addition to the bundles we'll have a featured project, and kit to make it, every month. 3rd Street Neighborhood is a wall hanging with rows of houses and landscape blocks to show off fun, free motion quilting. 

You can reserve a bundle or kit by calling the shop. There's no monthly commitment - simply select the months you want! We'll introduce the September palette and project soon.

Fashion Fabrics for Garments and Bags!

We've started to build our inventory of fashion fabrics for garments and bags. The Crossroads Denim from Indygo Junction is a pre-washed twill with a soft hand perfect for jackets and vests.
Amy Butler's Glow canvas is ideal for a bag or garment, too. 

The eyelet fabric from Michael Miller would make a sweet dress like the one in Sew Serendipity's line, Tara Tank Dress, seen here: http://blog.sewserendipity.com/2014/04/spring-2014-collection-meet-tara.html

The Michael Miller Clip Dot was used for the Wiksten Tova Tunic top you'll see in our upcoming fashion show on Sept. 12. This very light weight semi-sheer fabric features small woven spots of extra warp known as "clip" dots or Dotted Swiss Batiste. It's perfect for pretty dresses, blouses and skirts. Ditto with the Northcott fabric; it was used for the Juliet Dress tunic variation (http://blog.sewserendipity.com/2012/10/new-fall-collection-meet-juliet-nouveau.html) you'll see on the 12th.
And here's the new line of Avant cotton linen blend from Moda. Ask us to see the sample of pre-washed fabric. It's got a great hand for anywhere you need texture. And finally, the cotton linen blends and cotton lawns from the new Cotton & Steel line are in. For a peek at the Datura Blouse made from Homebody cotton lawn, visit our facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sew-Inspired-Quilt-Shop/105337166981). Or, better yet, see it in person at the fashion show on September 12! Tickets are available now.
