Old South Fabrics New Collections
Gary and I are traveling home to Tennessee from seeing my precious 88-year young mother who now lives in Missouri.
It was truly a most wonderful visit, but very difficult for me to leave. My mom influenced me greatly in my love for quilters and fabrics. I cherish all the years we enjoyed together making quilts and mom teaching me to sew. As many of you know, I established Old South Fabrics after I retired. It warms my heart to know that in the morning I will get busy cutting fabrics for you, my dear quilting friends. What a joy it is to be able to be of service to sweet quilters.
While driving across the states today, I am reminded how privileged we are to live in our beautiful country. What a perfect time to introduce you to Moda's new fabric collection, America the Beautiful, designed by Deb Strain. I hope you enjoy this patriotic tribute to our lovely country, America the Beautiful.
Spring Brook Quilt Kits are now available.
Linzee McCrary's new fabric collection, Flowers For Freya, was delivered while we were at Moms. Gary has it loaded on our website and ready for you to enjoy picking a bundle of flowers. After reading Linzee's note about feed sacks, I just had to share it with you!
Even during challenging times, women of the feed sack era made beauty part of their everyday lives. Whether they filled a jam jar with snapdragons and sunflowers, and set it on the windowsill, embroidered a pair of bluebirds on a potholder, or chose just the right colors from an overflowing scrap basket to stitch into a quilt, mixing something lovely into the humdrum of daily life sparked their creativity and lifted their spirits. And so it does today. Now, more than ever, glimpses of beauty can remind us of all that is good in the world. Flowers for Freya fabrics are based on feed sack prints and are perfect for creating items —bags, zippered pouches, dresses, and of course, quilts—that will lift your spirits and those of the people you love, making everyday moments a little brighter. by Linzee McCray
