Sue Pelland At Sew Inspired

This past Saturday, we were very lucky to have the lovely Sue Pelland come into our studio during our monthly Saturday Sampler to give a talk about her quilt designs and a demonstration on her Leaves Galore templates.

Sue uses Misty Fuse to pre-fuse her fabrics before rotary cutting applique shapes. She made dozens of leaves in just a few minutes - like magic! We now have Misty Fuse by the yard.

What's New At Sew Inspired

Here's what's new at the shop this week!

One of our new favorites is Tidal Lace by Kim Andersson for Windham Fabrics. Kim is an Australian designer who now lives in California, and her inspiration for this collection comes from the different experiences in her life from her grandmother's ballet shop to the tide pools on the Pacific Coast.

Who doesn't like a cute, nautical collection? Splash by Alex Anderson for RJR Fabrics features blue, red, cream and red fabrics that will remind you of summer.

Whitewashed Cottage by 3 Sisters for Moda is a sweet and darling collection full of country chic florals in pink, grey, yellow, coral and heathered purple. We also have charm packs of this collection in stock.

A super cute children's collection called Two By Two by Beth Logan for Henry Glass & Co. We also have a kit for a baby quilt that features a center panel.

And lastly, we have the new Imperial collection by Timeless Treasures that features gorgeous chrysanthemums, along with subtle Asian-themed coordinates in gold metallic designs.
