Market Magic..new and enticing patterns
Florida is the home of home of Art Gallery Fabrics and several designers who caught my eye.
Pink Sands Designs lovely beginners Bermuda Bag
is a gorgeous way to use jelly rolls strip sets, or scrap stash strip sets.
I brought back a model in dark blues, thinking of our Asian inspired and Japanese fabrics .
The fresh blues in Star of David
along with several of her stunning patterns like Judaica Trio
and Hannuka HiLights should arrive this week at Satin Moon.
Jennifer, creator of Jennifer Jangles
designs beads and jewelry,
She creates a totally vibrant statement. I brought back a couple pins and patterns.
Let me know what you LOVE , and I’ll bring in more this spring!
Fresh, cute – like Scrambled Eggs and bright as ever ( free patterns)
Me and My Sister ,from Pheonix Arizona inspired me to
bring home their Iron Cozy pattern
and try it out some Satin Moon fabrics .
Jack and Sue, Punkin and Sweetpea,
charmed me with with their enormous collection of
Giclee (zhee-CLAY) ready to sew quilt blocks
all from their personal collection of antique labels. I brought back several dozen for you to chose from.
I am making mine into potholders with Anna Marie Horner fabrics.
SO vintage, SO cute!
Bainbridge Island neighbours
of Beach Garden Quilts
got my attention with their cute dog leash pattern
but totally captured me with their floor cloths.
Stash fabric , glued onto window blind material is the basis
I’m still debating on the fabric to use for
Bella Nonna’s new All Ruffled Up Handbag
and how to use the exquisite
leather ornament patterns. I did bring back a dozen squares to share .
Of course the talk of the Market was from our own Island
Sharron Pederson’s Rose of Sharon, autographed book,
and DVD. We have just 2 of each one.
Next Sunday I’ll give you a preview of our 3rd annual
before finishing up market news with some of the toys and notions I found.
