What's New At PSQ 4-7-11

Pat Campbell Thread Caddy – If you are a hand appliquer, hand quilter or a sewer with a lot of stuff (that covers just about all of us, right?), then you will love the Pat Campbell thread caddy.  Hand Appliquers love it for the multiple, see thru zipper pockets.  This caddy holds a ton of thread  AND you can color coordinate it for ease and convenience.  Some appliquérs also use a strong needle and poke through the pocket to leave a thread tail.  Then just pull out what you need snip it and off you go!  Even if you’re not a hand appliquer, we all have thread and other stuff so the pockets are perfect for holding needles, scissors, tape measures, thimbles and more.  It folds up nice and neat AND it’s cute, too.  We have several different fabrics to chose from AND they make great gifts, too! 

Hoffman Batiks – Batiks - they just keep coming!  Also, Island Batiks called today to say our first shipment of Batik Essentials (these bolts are GORGEOUS) will ship today and arrive early next week.  Let the Batik Revolution begin!  Check out our selection of Blue Underground patterns that work so beautifully with batiks and make something fabulous this weekend!

Kaffe Fasset and Martha Negley – Again, photos are available on the blog and at Facebook of our latest shipment of Kaffe Fassett fabrics AND I’m thrilled to announce we also have bolts from Martha Negley’s newest line “Flower Garden”.  We didn’t even have the bolts out on the floor before customers were trying to buy this line!  Gorgeous, bold flowers in bright shades of pink, yellow, red, greens and more!  They work perfectly with the Kaffe Fasset fabrics.  Don't you agree?

All Aboard by Exclusively Quilters – This line of fabric features realistic trains in bright, bold primary colors.  Then we have two bolts of train/travel stamps and with a black or blue background and two tone on tones with line drawings of trains.  There also a beautiful sky fabric, too.  These fabrics would make fantastic pillow cases for the train lovers in your life!

My Universe by Exclusively Quilters – This fabric reminds me of my 3rd grade science project with the painted Styrofoam balls hanging from dental floss and a coat hanger!  And it really reminds me of that solar system because it still includes Pluto as a planet!  Oops, someone hasn’t been watching the news lately, hmmm!  Well, forget the technicalities.  It’s still a cute line of fabrics.  The planets are in bright colors on a black background with each of the planets labeled in a child-like hand writing.  There is a coordinating tossed planets (more tightly packed) and a beautiful orange and yellow swirl.  Again, these fabrics would make a fantastic and educational pillowcase!

Harvest Town Flannels by Red Rooster – I know, the weather is finally getting a little warmer and we get in flannels BUT flannels are so fabulous to work with AND I guarantee you it will be cold again.  Harvest Town is done in a folk-art style in muted autumnal shades of brown, rust, gold, orange, cream and green.  The panel features four different folksy farm scenes and fabrics include pumpkins, crows, leaves and apples as well as beautiful tone on tones in shades of brown, rust, green, cream and brown.  There’s a free pattern and if I get a few free moments, I’ll get together a sample and maybe even some kits.
