Normally I wouldn't post our new designs for fall Quilt Market so early, but we are so excited about these new designs from Debi Hubbs! They are both near the end of the "pattern development cycle", meaning we are almost done with them! We are waiting for pattern covers to be printed and proofing the patterns. We are taking preorders now, but may not be actually shipping until next month. Patterns will cost $14, Fabric kits will cost $58. Thread kits will be available but I don't have a price on them yet.

Debi's artwork is so much fun....it always brings a smile to my face! Peruse her website at http://www.artblooms.net/ . It is so much fun! If you see a painting that you think would make a great pattern, let me know....we're always open to suggestions!

Some of you know that we have a new design team, Woolin Rouge.... I love their tag line: "A Cabaret of Folk Art Designs So Simple Anyone Can-Can do them! Anyway, their first design, Star Light, Snow Bright has been a huge hit! We sell out of them at every show!

We are awaiting a wool order so that we can put fabric kits together. BUT, we have had many requests for a non-wool kit, so we have put a batik kit together, and it is really cute!

The next offering from Woolin Rouge was Hippie Birdie, a tablerunner/placemat/napkin ring pattern made up of cottons and wools.

At Quilt Market these designs attracted the eye of Marianne Byrne-Goarin, an amazing French designer, whose book, Cinnamon Inspirations, is full of wonderful wool felt designs. She invited Woolin Rouge to design for her magazine, and the result is Holly Birdie:

Next up will be a fall version with Chickadees! I can't wait!!
