New Fabric

Wow! Talk about a fabric collection perfectly designed for our part of the Southwest! Featuring realistic designs, this whole line would be perfect for any of your quilting, garment, or home decor projects. As you can see, the colors are vibrant.



You've asked for velveteen - we now have it in the store!
Perfect for traditional garments, holiday projects and more!




Just in time for Memorial Day and Fourth of July celebrations we have this patriotic collection. Metallic gold accents compliment the red, white and blue. Perfect for home decor and more!


This panel is an outstanding digital print. We created a lap quilt simply by adding borders, and a beautiful quilted design. Judith's husband wants a panel of his own to attract elk to his hunting camp. This would make the perfect quilt or wall hanging for any outdoor enthusiast.


Yes, this really is a digitally-printed panel. The details and quality of this print are simply amazing. This panel could even be stretched over canvas and left as is. All horse lovers would be happy to have a wall hanging or quilt with this beautiful image - my own daughter couldn't resist!
