We’ve got some interesting things in for you this week. We received some John Louden – Collection of Classic Florals. These florals would be perfect for a hexagon quilt.
Speaking of hexagons, we have received our long awaited Paper Pieces templates as well as a lovely book called Piecing It all Together by JoAnne Louis and Chris Moline.
We’ve also received this mouth watering Collections for a Cause – Faith by Howard Marcus for Moda.
The wonderful Sue of Daisy Chain has sent us some fantastic patterns.
Here’s a small selection of new books.
And of course these lovely patterns from May Blossom by Simone Gooding can’t possibly fail to please. This new selection is Jumbleberry Santas, Hickory Hearts, Stocking treasures Emmeline, Sugar Plum Medallions, Milliner’s Pins and a few more.
If you missed out on purchasing the Chevron Log Cabin Baby Quilt Kit at Pins & Needles, you’re in luck. Due to a great demand we have made up a few more kits but order soon to avoid disappointment.
