Tuesday Stack - So Soft

There have been so many new fabrics arrive in store it is hard to know where to begin.


This week I was drawn to the soft and subtle colours of these fabrics.  The fabrics are (from left to right):

Spot on Pink -  a great spot from Robert Kaufman
Pretty in Pink Floral from Sevenberry
Spring Street Calico Grey from Dear Stella

I just want to cut some now and go and sew.

This week's stack is for sale here.

Stay warm and happy sewing.

Modern Baby Quilt Class and Peasant Top / Dress Class

I have been very bad at blogging about all the lovely things that are being made at Stitchbird recently.  

Last night was the last class of the Modern Baby Quilt tutored by Adrianne of On the Windy Side.

And here are the lovely class attendees with their beautiful quilts.


Aya, Ann and Nancy


Colleen, Rachelle and Amanda

I love how each person's fabric selections make their quilts individual to them.  

Beautiful quilts ladies!

And last Saturday saw the first Girls Peasant Top/ Dress class tutored by Trish

Super cute!

There are more classes still available if you would like to come and sew with us.  You can check out the class listings here
