Lots of new fabrics and collections arriving at the store.
“Prairie Days” by Bunny Hill Designs, for Moda Fabrics. Red, white, and blue never looked so cute and fresh. We’ve made up a Summer Picnic quilt, bench pillow and hand embroidered patriotic scene to celebrate summer and all the patriotic holidays.
“Cotton Beach” by Tilda has arrived … with 27 designs in the collection. Shells, coral reefs, and sea anemones are some of the motifs that inspired the mixed style designs. Colors vary from purples to dark and light corals, sandy greys, light and green teals and blues, and yellows to represent sunshine. Collection includes five beach shell blenders in softer hues and two “Me and My Friend,” in two colors depicting female busts in all shapes and sizes.
“Destinations” by Riley Blake continues to expand with us adding “Coastal California”, “Hollywood”, “Joshua Tree” and “Yosemite” to the store. We quilted and framed them all as posters on the wall bringing smiles to all our quilt travelers.
“Wanderlust” by Maude Asbury for Free Spirit is a light hearted collection with “Hit the Road", “Sky High” and “At the Beach” just a few of the designs that evoke a sense of adventure as we head into the summer vacation season.
Does anyone else have Spring Fever?
Next month is May and just a reminder to dig out those 20% off coupons you received at the Spring Fling for donating food. They are good at any store that participated in the event.
Also, during the month of May at the store, if you bring us a completed pillowcase for Ryan’s Cases for Smiles, we will give you a pre-cut fat quarter of your choice as a thank you and hopefully as an enticement to make a pillowcase for sick children in hospitals in the Inland Empire. They are needing pillowcases for ages 12 – 18. If you can’t sew a pillowcase but would like to help you can also just purchase and donate the individual packaged fabric pillowcase kits that we have at the store. We have priced them at our cost and will include a donation card with your name. All donations and pillowcases go to The Inland Empire Chapter and the need is great, approximately 400 cases a month is what they need.
This year’s Southern California Quilt Run theme is “Let’s Eat Cake”. This event is held for two weeks on Thursday – Sunday July 14th – 17th and July 21st – July 24th. Can you guess what Cake we are baking up at The Quilter’s Faire? Yes, we’re having a guess the cake contest. We’ll be giving out clues both in our newsletters and on Instagram and one lucky winner will take home a $50.00 store gift certificate just for guessing the exact cake we will be baking up for the event. A little disclaimer, it’s not really a cake, it’s a quilt that we are calling a cake, but you still need to guess the exact name of the cake (really a quilt). You will need to write down your guess and bring it to the store no later than Saturday, June 25th to be in the game.
Clue no. 1:
Our cake is good any month of the year.
