As I mentioned in my last post, I’m behind on sharing my new things with my blog readers. It was fun to see so many of you still here, even though I took such a long blog break! To get you caught up on what I’ve been doing, I have a fabric line to share that will be coming out in May. If you follow me on any of my other social media channels, you have already seen it, but I thought I would share it here too for those that haven’t!
The line is called Snowed In. I live in Minnesota, where we have winter for about 5 months out of the year. As soon as the first snowflakes start to fly, I hang my collection of hand-cut paper snowflakes around the house. I watch them all season and they just make me happy! My love of snowflakes has led me to collect a few other complimentary winter decorations. I like to mix in pine boughs, red berries, snowmen, and trees – anything to make my home warm and cozy during the long winter. It’s easy to see that all of these things inspired the different prints in this fabric collection. The combination is fresh, yet warm and inviting.
Now I can’t wait to get “Snowed In” this winter with a pile of this fabric and create quilts for my home. In Minnesota, being snowed in can be one of the best things – you can’t get out so no going to work or activities. It’s the perfect time to quilt!
Here’s a closer look at those prints – a mix of winter motifs, florals, dots, plaids, and a touch of the holidays. This Fat Quarter pack is available for preorder here.
I also have a set of patterns to go with the collection. My favorite is the Snowed In Sampler below. This pattern will be available next month.
I am taking preorders for those that would like a kit of this sampler. The preorders are due shortly, so if you want to make sure that you get one, you will want to commit sooner than later! There may be more available later, but it all depends on if I will be able to get more fabric. You can preorder the kit here.
I am also going to be hosting a Sew Along for this quilt. We will start on June 17th and it will run through August 19th. You leave me a comment to be entered into the Sew Along or send me an email to sign up! I would love to have you join us.
Next up, is Super Snowflake. It’s an oversized snowflake block and it makes for a very dramatic wall or lap quilt! This pattern will also be available next month. It’s Fat Quarter friendly and uses the Creative Grids 60-degree triangle ruler.
You can preorder this kit here, but again they will only be available as long as I can get more fabric.
Next up is Mr Frosty. This pattern can be found in our Trendy Table 3 book (available now), as a single pattern (available next month) or in the kit mentioned below.
This kit will be offered in one of Riley Blakes a keepsake boxes and includes the pattern. You can preorder yours here. This kit will arrive in June.
Next we have the Let It Snow quilt.
We will offer kits with both the aqua version shown above and the white background shown below. Click here to see those options.
This fabric line also comes with a panel. We will be offering the following free pattern to go with the panel. You can preorder that kit here.
Lastly, we have our Easy Peasy runner made with a 5″ stacker of the Snowed In collection. This runner pattern is available now and can be found in our Trendy Table 3 book. The kit preorder is available here.
That’s all I have made so far with these fabrics, but I am working on more! I also can’t wait to see what all you make using this line. I will keep you posted on when the kits and yardage arrives.
Remember – you can also ask for this fabric line at your favorite quilt shop!
