Ask and Ye Shall Receive

Thanks to the Teeny Tiny Quilts readers and their input on favorite Kona colors, we have eight new solids in stock with heavy emphasis on pinks and purples. And yes, we have stacked up those luscious shades in an "In the Pink (and Purple)" FQ pack. Pomegranate, which was a top pick, is backordered and should join the others soon.

A Win-Win Situation

The Castle Peeps giveaway on Liz's blog, Teeny Tiny Quilts is over and Helen from New Zealand is the lucky winner of a FQ set of Peeps in Gallant Green. The fantastic readers of TTQ gave us some good direction as to new Kona colors they'd like us to stock. The top votes for specific colors were Cerise, Pomegranate and Celery.

Great choices! We love them. For those who couldn't pick just one color, the most requested hues were purples and pinks, followed closely by greens and blues. In response, we've listed "I'm Blue for Greens" FQ and half yard packs in our shop. It's 12 fabrics in our selection of greens and blues.

A new Kona order is in the works and I'm sure the result will be a pink and purple package. Thanks for the great feedback. Happy Sewing!

Want to Win Some Peeps?

Visit our great friend Liz of Teeny Tiny Quilts, and enter the Peeps FQ giveaway we're sponsoring. Liz is great for sharing her gorgeous quilts and helpful hints (see the Cobblestone quilt, beautiful technique). She's one of the people who really helped me overcome my solid aversion. And somehow she does all of this while raising toddler twins. An amazing woman.

And go easy on the intervention folks. As a supplier of her solid habit, we think she's really got this thing under control. A girl just needs some nice fabric every now and then. It's no big thing.

Sometimes all you need is a quick fix...

... of fun fabric that is. When Tufted Tweets arrived on Monday, amidst all the buzz, Peg and I knew that any thoughts of adding to our own stash were foolish. We cut 4 inch strips for ourselves and then spent the next 4 days cutting and shipping, cutting and shipping. By Friday night I was pooped – any thoughts of going near a sewing machine were non-existent. Nine hours of great sleep later, I HAD to play with what few strips I had. Based on this tutorial I made myself a belt - not perfect but oh so fun and quick (and able to be sewn while playing purple ponies with my girl).

We do have the whole line on reorder – not sure of arrival dates but we think mid-July. We'll keep you posted.

Tufted Tweets Giveaway!!

Becca and I have been fans of Laurie Wisbrun for a while now. We've both bought fabric from her Etsy store. Donkeys in Wellies, Urban Circus, oh my! Such fun designs and vibrant colors.

Laurie's first release with Robert Kaufman is Tufted Tweets, a whimsical study of birds and chairs in three luscious palettes - Grass, Orchid and Sorbet. We'll have the entire line in our store tomorrow and have fat quarters, half yards and fat quarter assortments ready to go then.

We will be giving away three fat quarter 4-packs (four designs in one colorway) on Friday, June 11 to three lucky winners. Leave a comment and let us know what fabulous project you want to tackle with these lovelies. If you need some suggestions, Laurie's blog has some great ones.

Also become a fan of Sew Fresh Fabrics on Facebook to be alerted when other new Market arrivals come in. Thanks.
