Our New Fabric Collection!

Oooooh, we are SO excited that we can finally show off our new collection of fabrics!

Are you ready to "Strike a Pose..."?  
Let's VOGUE.

(Yep, we are material girls at heart!)

”All you need is your own imagination
So use it --that's what it's for
Go inside, for your finest inspiration
Your dreams will open the door”
  ---lyrics from Madonna's 'Vogue' 

We designed this collection way back a year or so ago (it takes a long time to get fabric into production...) and we are happy to say, it is almost on it's way!  It will ship to YOUR local quilt shop this Fall. (We wouldn't mind you helping us out by telling your shop owner that you'd like them to order it!)

We are busy designing our booth for Spring Quilt Market with these new prints...and you can be sure we will blog and post some photos when we get the booth built next week in Kansas City.

But for's a look at Vogue...

There are 21 prints in this group, plus 2 cameo panels. 
You can quilt the panel as a whole, or cut it up in to smaller projects for applique, pillows, bags, name it! And there are even some small frames on the edges, which you can use for quilt labels or to design your own little projects.

We have been busy whipping up samples for our booth...with teensy bits of test fabric! 
(This collection is so NEW, that we haven't yet received our sample fabric. So we've been sewing with "strike-offs", which are just test pieces of fabric that are used to check the pattern registration, pattern repeat and the colors in the design.)

Can't wait to show you what we've whipped up!

But for now, we are packing it up and shippin' it off to Kansas City...

'Don't just stand there, let's get to it
Strike a pose, there's nothing to it'

Spring Market PANIC! (and Aurifil Designer of the Month!)

YES! It's that time of year again...
Spring Market!!



Ok. So honestly, this year
is not so bad. Even though panic hits and we WOULD love to run away, like, say to Hawaii?
But never fear, we have it together.
Sort of....

Which is to say, at LEAST we
have a TO-DO list up on our 
Google Docs so we know what we
are doing!  I mean, we have 
two weeks, right?


Don't push that button quite
yet, thank you!

Don't mind us as we scramble around to get our booth together. Keep checking back, we'll be blogging from market AND you'll FINALLY get a sneaky peeky of our NEW FABRIC LINE!

Meanwhile...check out this
month's Aurifil 
Designer of the Month.
Oh my gosh, 
this block is so dang cute! 
I want to sit down and stitch it 
(No, no, I'll stay focused on that to-do
list, really, I promise I will...)



Hop on over to the Aurifil blog and
get the scoop on May's designer. I know I will have to add her blog to my list, looks like she has some fun.  And you know how we Lizzie B's like to have fun!

Look at this cute stitchery for the month:

I just love the May Pole! And look at that 
cute little thimble.

Remember to post your finished blocks on the flickr group for your chance to WIN!
Or just click on over there to check out all the OTHER great blocks.  I LOVE what everyone is stitching up.

Uh-oh. There we go again...I'm just dying
to stitch on something....

Ok...focus, focus, market, two weeks,
focus, to-do list, focus...
