Tawny Scrawny Lion From Quilting Treasures

Quilting Treasures produces some of the best licensed character collections! They have already printed a few collections based on classic Little Golden Books, and this one — The Tawny Scrawny Lion — might be my favorite. I’ve never actually read the story, but I love that patchwork print! And it’s time I got some of [...]

Windham‘s new Flour Sack collection is a lovely assortment of small-scale floral prints and two focus prints of flour sack labels, a must have [...]

I like the combination of traditional damask and scrolly leaves with the folky yet modern garden theme. Throw in [...]
