NEW FABRIC

Stonehenge Mountain Vista is a stunning collection in a sunset color palette. The majestic mountain view panel pairs perfectly with Stonehenge textures including the collection’s unique blanket weave print, to create a range of interesting projects.

Picture a bicycle ride on a country road – a roadside stand with produce & sunflowers...all on a beautiful summer day. That is what the collection Country Road Market is all about.

This panel would create wonderful place mats or even decorative pillows.

From the lush Kitsap Peninsula in Washington State, artist Jane Shasky paints beautifully detailed watercolors celebrating the flowers, plant and bird-life surrounding her home. To see Jane’s work is to experience the timeless cycle of seasons; from the bounty of summer flowers and fresh-picked herbs to the delightful visitations of native birds perched among autumn leaves or singing from snowy winter branches in the nearby woods. With every stroke of her brush, Jane pays precise, almost photographic attention to color and detail while creating a feeling of serenity that brings the peace of the garden indoors. Check out our sample below.

These panels are Milestone Mats created to track a growing baby. New parents love to create a photo slideshow to share with family and friends and to keep as a memento. The milestone mat is the perfect shower gift and can be sewn in a day - the maker just needs to add backing, quilt and bind!
