Salsa Dreams

Stephanie Brandenburg designed this beautiful line for Northcott Fabrics. We loved the throw sized quilt they made using the line and decided it was not the time to reinvent the wheel. It’s a great use of the panel and fabrics so we made the “cool” version.

Our kit for Salsa Dreams contains the fabrics shown in the colors shown. The panel is 24″ x 40″ with 3 borders and a flange of yellow before the last border.

The use of the ombre fabric for the border is explained in the pattern so your will look just like ours.

Finished size is approx. 54″ x 71″.

You might like to see the fabrics in this line in case you have different plans for this great fabric.

We kitted the cool version, but if you prefer the hot version, give us a call at 830-896-8088, ask for Kathy and we can put a kit together for you using the colors in the “hot” version. (Small picture at the bottom.)

Angelitas and Coro Dorado – Angels and the Golden Choir

Alexander Henry is one of our favorite fabric companies. They produce the most interesting and eclectic fabrics for niche groups. This particular print in two sizes and two colorways just spoke to us. Hope it will speak to you as well.

This is the same print, just very different colorways. The Spice is very dramatic with the rich colors of dark red, gold and teal. The Sage colorway is soft with the mauves, greys, greens and gold. We couldn’t make up our mind which one to get so we got both.

Coro Dorado is the same print as Las Angelitas, only the scale is smaller. The actual color of the Sage print is closer to the Coro Dorado (smaller print). It’s not as “pink” as it looks in Las Angelitas. Try to make up your mind which you like better….we couldn’t.

Bareroots Embroidery Kits

We are facing more days indoors in the next few months so this is a great time to get a stitchery kit. Bareroots has introduced their kits for embroidered dish towels. Each kit includes the towel, floss, instructions, pattern and rick rack. You need to furnish the needle and transfer the design to the towel.

Wondering how you will get it transferred to the towel? DMC has an embroidery tracing paper that will do the trick. Be sure and pre-wash your towel.

If you need a needle, we have several choices as well.

If you want to do more than one, we can supply the dish towels as well.
