The robins are back so spring is just around the corner. Now is a great time to make a new quilt with a fun spring fabric. We have a two new Moda fabrics coming in March—Bee Creative and Bees N Bloom. Bee Creative includes a panel and three coordinates and a new pattern called Galley by Coach House Designs. Bees N Bloom by Kansas Trouble includes Jelly Rolls, Charm Packs and some fabrics.

Kraft-tex paper fabric has arrived. It includes a free bag project. Fabric looks and feels like leather, but sews, cuts, and washes just like fabric. A Kraft-tex style book is available which includes 27 projects using Kraft-tex paper fabric.

We also have three new rulers—

Folded Corner Clipper by Prairie Sky Quilting eliminates the need for drawing pencil lines. By trimming the corner first, you identify the sewing line and trim in one step!!

Get Squared by June Taylor is used to fussy-cut specific patterns or motifs. Use this to also square up two sizes of quilt blocks with one ruler, 8-1/2“and 4-1/2”.

From Quilt in a Day we have a new Half Rectangle template and the following new patterns: Hatched, Moon Dance, Lattice Work and Crazy Ann Quilt.
