30's Reproductions

I've begun to add some 30's prints back into the store.  I started out with a box of 100 assorted fat quarters.  Guess what?  I'm on the third box!

Today these bolts arrived from Henry Glass, the Nana Mae Collection. $10.99/yard.





Here are four more 30's reproductions that arrived a little earlier from Windham Fabrics, the Storybook Vacation Collection.  $11.29/yard.

Hunter's Star - Studio 180 Designs

Up until now, my only experience with Studio 180 Designs has been with the "Quilter's Magic Wand", a lovely clear plastic strip that's wonderful for marking squares to make half square triangles.  They've been in the shop a while, $4.50 each.

Now we all have the opportunity to learn more about Deb Tucker's Studio 180 Designs specialty rulers.  I understand that Deb is a former math teacher and really knows her geometry.

We are starting off with guest teacher Kimberly Flannagan, a certified Studio 180 instructor, teaching us how to make Hunter's Star a quicker easier way using the Studio 180 ruler.


She'll be offering a class at Cotton Fields on Saturday, April 22 at 10 AM.  It's a techniques class, where you will learn the method and also explore color and size options.  Class is $35, ruler (required) is $23.50.  Fabric provided.
