Early Fall


 I'm ashamed to see how infrequently I have put up a blog post.  Things get in front of it on my daily "to-do" list.  It was summer when I last blogged and now it's early fall.  You know that of course by the kazillion football games that were broadcast this past holiday weekend.  It is football season here in the Midwest.  RAH!  If you are a football fan (or live among them) maybe our Gridiron! table topper is for you.  The color could be altered to fit your favorite team. 




Grand Haven Table topper is here too! We think of it as summery, but if the nautical look rocks your boat all year long - here it is.
Now that Grand Traverse Bay fabric collection has shipped to shops - we love seeing what you are making with it.  Instagram has been great for that.  This is my Miller Avenue - hanging our in the studio on Miller Avenue.  



Our friends at Moda in Dallas found the very last ever kit of Austin Bluebird hidden in the warehouse.  It is now here - waiting to be claimed.  It's in our Etsy shop.


Speaking of football season, we are anxiously awaiting cool evenings so we can cuddle up with this Ironwood quilt made with our Cotton Works fabric collection.  It's soft and squishy and feels like  wool, but it 100% cotton. 


And if snuggling up under a warm quilt sounds good - you might want to have this too.  This new book by Martingale is a wonder.  Gwen Marston and her quilts.  Gwen's genius is evident. You will want to pick this book up again and again for the inspiration.


Me? I'm plugging along on a new quilt for our top secret fabric group that will be unveiled next month.  It might have a lot of appliqué.  It also might have a lot of English Paper Piecing. I think this might be enough thread.  We hope you love it.

Laters,

Laurie

I see you name your fabric lines from west Michigan. Do you live in the area or do you visit? AND I wonder if I traveled outside of North west Michigan would anyone know how to say Charlevoix?
