Introducing // Desert Bloom by Rae Ritchie

Guys! Rae Ritchie‘s debut collection, Desert Bloom, is shipping to stores THIS MONTH! To celebrate, today we’re bringing you some lovely photos of Rae’s fabric (if we do say so…). Feel free to indulge in this eye candy!

Desert Bloom awakens Rae Ritchie’s mountain dreams with visions of cactus blooms and lush flora. Her reveries are punctuated with airy textures in rapturous shades of palest peach, mossy green, and fresh turquoise.

The Scallop Dot (below) is quickly becoming a favorite blender: it’s the perfect amount of texture!

Desert Bloom has a wide scope. Printed on our soft cotton shirting, this collection is absolutely stunning for quilt projects, accessories, and garments alike. We may have stitched up a few dresses already… AND! We have a gorgeous *free* quilt pattern to share next week.

Succulents! We adore Rae’s painterly hand.

Run, don’t walk, to your nearest quilt shop to pick up Rae Ritchie’s Desert Bloom collection! This will begin arriving in stores by the end of this month. We are so excited to see your creations!

Pixie Dust // Sweetheart Tooth Fairy Pillow Tutorial

Whew! We’re back from Quilt Market, and what an adventure that was! We’ll be sharing our recap on the blog very soon. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, we’re very happy to share this adorable Sweetheart Tooth Fairy Pillow tutorial by our friend Melissa Lunden of Lunden Designs. We absolutely love her designs, and were so excited by this idea for our cute Pixie Dust collection!

This sweet pillow is perfect for any little lady who is ready for a visit from the tooth fairy. Using fussy cut 2” squares from the lovely Pixie Dust collection, this pillow has all the charm and magic of unicorns, fairies, and woodland creatures. The finished pillow is 9” tall and 9” wide.

You can download the tutorial for the Sweetheart Tooth Fairy Pillow HERE.

Pixie Dust is in stores now, and we’ve been loving the projects so far. In case you missed these, check out this Day Break quilt and *free* Pixie Patchwork stroller quilt.

It’s Quilt Market Time!

Temperatures are dropping and the leaves are changing colors… That can only mean one thing – it’s time for Quilt Market!

Quilt Market is a biannual event for businesses in the fabric industry, where people travel from all over the world to feast their eyes on new fabric collections, patterns and books, and sewing and quilting machines. The show will be taking place this weekend, October 24 through 26.

The day before the show begins, there’s a day-long series of lectures called Schoolhouse. We’ll be hosting three Schoolhouse sessions – so if you’ll be at Quilt Market on Friday, stop by room 352D to hear them!

If you won’t be at the show this weekend, don’t fret! We do a great job (if we do say so ourselves…) of posting updates on our social media sites. Between behind-the-scenes snapshots of setting up the booth and fun photos during the show – we’ve definitely got you covered.

See you in Houston!
