Thursday, October 8

Happy fall everyone!! It's hard to believe that October is upon us.
With the temps getting cooler (or downright cold) outside, it's time to start thinking about fall.
We begin to notice the change in color of the leaves on the trees, and the farming traffic
on the roads and in the fields as the fall harvesting process begins.
We also start to see pheasants, ducks, and geese getting ready for winter.
Holly Taylor of Moda has certainly done a fantastic job depicting some of those
changes we experience here in Minnesota in her latest fabric line called
'Migration'.

The panel has fun fall leaves and tonal scenes of trees with
ducks, pheasants and geese.

The coordinates above also do a great job of fitting the fall feel. There are very fun textures in a couple of the bolts above as well as fun designs. There is also a fabric (3rd from the bottom) that would work nice for a border print or backing.

Although, camping season in this neck of the woods has slowly wound to an end, Moda's American Jane has created another cute piece showing how much fun camping can be in her newest line called

'Happy Campers'

The above is the panel piece showing various camping activities from heading down the river or lake in a canoe, tenting, swimming, spending time at the beach, sitting around a campfire at night, and spending time with your family.

American Jane also comes up with a fun piece that can serve as either a fun backing (potential to make the quilt reversible), or as a focal print, or border. Her scenes above also depict her focal panel piece.

We also ordered in some honey buns. For those of you who are unfamiliar with what the honey bun is all about, there are about 40 strips of the fabric line that are 1 1/2" x 44. We have a very unique pattern designed by American Jane due to arrive in the shop next week using the honey bun strips. Make sure to check back to see project when we have it finished!!
