Digital Linen from Telio

We found these beautiful linens over 5 years ago from Telio, a fabric wholesaler out of Canada. We continue to reorder when we can and increase our selection as our customers love these linens. They can be machine washed and dryed.

We often think of linen only for the summer, but these prints are so beautiful they carry right into the Texas fall! Our three newest prints have just arrived.

We also received some of our favorites that have been on backorder.

These prints are still in stock too.

Let’s Sew Something

Time for a little break from quilts and runners. Let’s do a little simple sewing. It’s fun to have something new to wear that “I MADE MYSELF”. We don’t do complicated or fitted patterns, just comfort and great fabrics.

The Farrow Dress is from Grainline Gear. It’s a simple pullover dress with front pockets. For best results, use a lightweight fabric that has great drape. This is becoming one of our favorite patterns for Fall with the option of a longer sleeve.

Great in Rayon!
Wonderful knit !

Take a look at some of the possibilities to make this garment. This pattern is considered advanced beginner, so bet we could all make this one! The Farrow Dress comes in sizes 0 – 18. If you select a 42″ rayon, you will need 3 1/2yds thru size 10 and 4 yds for sizes 12-18. If you use a 54″ knit or silky noil, you will need 3 1/4yds for sizes 0 – 8, 3 1/2yds for sizes 10-14 and 3 3/4yds for sizes 16 – 18.

We always wash our garment fabrics before we sew them. We put them in a warm washer and warm dryer with a bounce sheet and remove them just before they are toasty dry.

These pieces are 42″ wide rayons:

Love to work with knits. These are great choices as they don’t roll and don’t have too much stretch. These fabrics are 54″ wide.

If solids are more your thing, you will love working with our Silky Noil. It’s a 54″ Linen/Rayon combination. It goes thru the washer and dryer like a dream and has a great drape for this pattern. Check out our colors.

Random Thoughts Quilt Kit

If you are not quite sure what to do with the graphic prints from Marcia Derse’s newest collection, Random Thoughts, we have just the thing.

Give our newest quilt kit a try and you will have a great time combining all these colors surrounded by her neutrals. The quilt is approximately 60″ x 80″, so it’s a generous throw size.

Be sure you check out what we put on the back….it’s the focus print. It makes a wonderful back to blend with all the graphic prints on the front.

We offer just the pattern if you want to try different fabrics in this easy quilt. Maybe you already have a collection of Marcia Derse fabrics and just need some inspiration.

If you have other plans for this collection, take a look at what we have. Several of the prints are already on re-order, but we will hopefully have them back again soon.
