Bright Heart, the latest collection from Amy Butler is now in the shop and online the Quilting Cottons are only $9.75/yd! This beautiful array of prints is more inspired work from one of our favorite designers and dearest friends in the quilting world! Amy's designs usually stem from her fabulous travels around the world and we couldn't be more happy with the colors and patterns coming through her these days!
3 enticing and rich colorways in Quilting Cottons, Sateens & Voiles! They work beautifully mixed and matched together or within their own palette! Jewel tones continue to be a running theme in her color choices which makes her past collections perfect for working with these new fabrics!
How magical is this half square triangle quilt in emerald and jade tones?? You can totally create a stunning design from a minimal amount of prints!
Loving this new pouf design Amy created! Looks like excellent extra seating for a bohemian living room or a lounge area!
Even if your décor is ultra modern, this bright and & bohemian collection can add just the right touch of warmth without looking out of place!
Pretty throw pillows, pieced or plain are a great way to add some color to your neutral sofa or bed!
And how gorgeous are the Voiles in this line?? Rich colors like these can easily be worn into the cooler Fall months with the addition of warmer layers!
Basically, Bright Hearth is another home run from Amy Butler! We just love how the creative juices are flowing from her these days! Check out this video below to see her talk more about her inspiration for this collection and some of her fun new projects!

Home Dec fabric is some of my FAVORITE to work with! The toughness, the crispness...they just seem to add a little extra something to my projects for the house. That extra weight for a curtain or added stability for a chair cushion really comes in handy! And Riley Blake Designs creates some awesome prints in these heavier weights that are perfect for all these applications and we LOVE all the awesome projects that have been shared for their Home Dec blog hop! Especially this adorable and portable pressing table!
We have used these in our shop for the past few years but have always used regular quilting cottons and they give up the goat pretty quickly based on how much we use them but this one made with Home Dec fabrics I think will stand the test of time much better!
Using a inexpensive folding tv tray, some batting and your favorite Home Dec print of choice, you can create this super easy and convenient accessory that you'll use again and again!

This gorgeous line is full of hand-painted motifs and ornate details inspired by the intricate patterns and textiles of India. And what could be a better décor item for these prints than a bohemian pouf! Throw your feet up on this comfy cutie after a long day or use it as extra seating at a party!
Plus, this brand new collection is only $9.75 a yard, so you can really create a loungey look in your space with a few of these fun poufs in your living room or on your patio this season!

We LOVED doing this pattern with our Campers! Simple and easy construction allowed for them to really get used to the sewing machines and not be intimidated by them! Lots of straight lines can still create a stunner of a quilt when you pick interesting prints in lots of fun colors!
One of the best parts about Kid Camp is these young ones remind us how simple it is to quilt! We all tend to stress over every little fabric selection while kids seem to rush out and pick exactly what makes their heart sing! And leave it to a kiddo to show us that quilt in all one color can still look AMAZING!
I love the way this pretty and light quilt turned out! Starting with her favorite print as the centerpiece of the quilt, the rest of the fabrics came easily by going with colors in already in that busy design!
We just love how much that striped border between the tonals makes this quilt POP!!
Print mixing is not the most simple way for most adult quilters to go about making an awesome looking quilt, but Kids just seem to have a knack for it! I guess its because they know what they like and they have the confidence to put it all together! This one is SEW much fun with that bright pop of lime green!
Another stunning surprise was Olivia's gorgeous quilt full of awesome FLORALS!! All of those prints together just WORK and it definitely looks like something I could see in a bohemian bedroom!
Who doesn't love a great quilt full of neutrals?? This one came out AMAZING with her spot on color values that allow each print to really be seen for all it's worth!
With their quilts all folded up! Big graphic patterns look SO cool, even when you're only getting to see a portion of it!
In addition to their big quilts, they got to make some super fun Pillowcases!! Our Pillowcase Kits are one of the best ways to teach kids to sew, pick one up for your little one and you won't have to wait until next Summer to get them sewing!
Everyone also created some cute Christmas themed mini quilts or wall hangings for their bedrooms this holiday season! Love the panels everyone chose!
Last but not least, they all made some fun fabric bags! There was A LOT of sewing going on this Summer and we're sure they all just became makers for life! We hope your kiddos join us for next year's Kids Camp!!

If you're looking for that perfect Summer collection to give your home an update, look no further than Vignette by Laura Gunn! Gorgeous florals in fresh colors will look stunning on pieced pillows, simple or intricate quilts and especially fabulous as clothing & accessories!
I'm especially loving this beautiful Lattice quilt created by Rachel from Stitched in Color! There's a tutorial for this adorable quilt block in this blog post!
I really like what she did with the back! Just as interesting as the front and SEW simple to throw together, this is one reversible design I am definitely gonna try!
Happy sewing y'all!
