True North is Truly Canadian

Canadian designers Kate & Birdie have partnered with Moda for an exclusive line “True North” for Trend Tex Fabrics and we can’t be happier.  This Canadian collection deserves a place in every Canadian cabin, camper and tent….or anywhere really.

This line features beaver, moose, a maple leaf, a red canoe and a lighthouse.  We will have it available by the metre and in an assortment of precuts.  It will be available this Spring but you can pre-order it now by clicking HERE.

Have a closer look at some of the prints.

We will also be carrying patterns by Canadian designer Barb Cherniwchan of Coach House Designs which feature the True North collection. They will be available in January but you can pre-order now by clicking on a particular pattern below.

Sew and Tell…Heather’s Mini Quill

Quill Schnibbles QuillHAM

Quill by 3 Sisters for Moda has arrived in the shop. This sums up the collection as described by Moda;

In a world where everything is defined or categorized, 3 Sisters is an exception. Mixing a contemporary color palette with pages taken from old books and vintage floral prints, Quill reflects the sisters’ unique style. Taking the name from the pen used to render the drawings and lines of text, shades of pink and green accent grays, aqua and mauve to create a collection that is as sophisticated and eclectic as the sisters themselves.

A few months ago Heather brought in this little quilt she made when the early precuts arrived in the store. It only took two Moda Mini Charm packs and a bit of Bella Cream fabric (approx. .30m) to make this cutie. It’s a good size to set on a table or fill a smaller space on a wall.Quill Schnibbles 2 Quill Schnibbles detail

Sadly we can longer get the pattern which is Little Bits – Grain by Schnibbles but if you are clever you could probably whip up this little 4 patch or something similar.

We have a select few precuts still available or find the yardage here.
