Fabric, Products & Supplies

Cotton & Steel is losing all of its founding designers! No details as to why, but Craft Industry Alliance has some news and RJR will be continuing with the brand. I have to say that I haven’t been buying the designs from Cotton & Steel lately. They just weren’t me. Stay tuned.

Tula Pink’s new Zuma line (with seahorses!) is available at some sites for pre-order.

I never heard of Wefty before, but got to know more about the company when I read her post about Quilt Market in Portland.


Meander Publishing is closing both Machine Quilting Unlimited and Modern Quilts Unlimited magazines effective immediately. “The final issue of Machine Quilting Unlimited (July/August 2018) will be distributed in digital format only, not print. There will be no more Modern Quilts Unlimited issues.”

Projects & Tutorials

Sarah Goer turned me on to Fabric and Fiction. I read to much via audiobook to participate, but I love the idea. I don’t know where they are in the cycle, so take a look and see when you can jump in.

In Color Order has a tutorial for a patchwork drawstring bag.

Holly of String & Story created a video that will start you off on FMQing feathers.

Other Artists

Quiltmaking is a wonderful thing. I love the way different people can take a block and make it look completely different. As you know, I am using EPP papers for my half hexie star quilt. I found a post on Instagram using the same papers, but with a different and clever look!

I was pleased to see Peg, a librarian friend who now quilts, is making a fabric of the year quilt with her 2017 fabrics.

Remember my post about Symmetry? Here is a library that has gorgeous symmetry! I am sure the angle of the photo had something to do with it, but it is still a great photo. Yes, I now follow the photographer on Instagram.

Happy Birthday, Modern Quilt Studio.
