One of the wonderful quilters in our area, Joyce McComas, is now doing quilting classes in her home with several piecing and paper piecing classes scheduled over the next few months.

Light Batiks

I got in two sets of these light batik strips.  They are in creams, almond and off whites.  Perfect for those patterns that require a light and also a dark or print jelly roll.

BATIKS

Received some batiks this week from a new supplier.  They had an assortment pack of 9 different fabrics, six yards each and decided it sounded interesting.

I was a little disappointed that all of them where not six yard cuts.  Some colors were in 3 yard pieces and a couple more in a 2/4 yard ratio.  I still like the colors and feel of these.  The backs are a couple of shades lighter than the front so I think people that applique would like two shades of the same color in one piece of fabric.

We have placed two bundles of these batiks on etsy and have the rest of the yardage available.


My favorites are the yellow the gray (center that looks more blue gray in this picture) and the green  on the far right.  It actually is a green/brown blend that reminds me of camo and would be great in a guys hunting or fishing quilt.  I guess I like it because it is so different.

This is the second of three different pre-cuts we received yesterday.  This Timeless Treasures Tonga Treats 2 1/2 strip pack is a great combination of neutrals, browns and blues.

This collection is called Rockport.


The packet even contains a simple free pattern.

Undersea Adventures

This Northcott bolt just in is part of the Undersea Adventures line.  It would be a great addition to the Undersea panel, a bright addition to any quilt or a fun backing.
