Hey everyone! How is your recovery from the weekend going? I think there are a few of us around here who could have used one more day off – myself included! Nobody’s complaining though. There’s a lot to do to get ready for summer and not a lot of time to do it. We’re all excited to wrap up spring projects and start thinking about the beach, cook-outs, and of course putting some serious work into the garden! It’s kind of painful to think that I won’t have my new Red and White Gatherings fabric line physically in my hands until sometime after summer leaves us, especially after seeing the strike-offs and how beautiful this line is turning out. I can barely wait! This collection is made up of cream-based whites and a stunning mix of reds, ranging from middle of the road to dark and deep. Print patterns include floral, linear, and geometrical designs that span from tiny to large giving you a wide spectrum of visual variety.
If you’re anything like me, these exciting new fabrics have your mind going in a million directions! I can imagine this versatile line being implemented into several different projects I’ve been thinking about starting. You know how I love the traditional red and white color combination! Of course, I also have a design book coming out that will contain nine unique designs (12 total quilts – some with more than one version) – all based on “Red & White Gatherings” fabric. If you’re looking for a bit of red and white inspiration, this book is the perfect solution! As of now, it will be available to ship in October, 2022. Quilt kits are not available yet but will be coming soon!
I know getting the finished book into your hands feels a long way off as well, but don’t fret! I DO have some good news in the midst of all this longing… As of now, pre-cuts and yardage of “Red & White Gatherings” AND the project book Red and White Gatherings are officially available to pre-order from our website. Just click the link below! Not to mention, now is a great time to stock up on “Red & White Gatherings” because all pre-cuts are 20% OFF (for a limited time)! Please note: Pre-orders should be the only thing in your car when you are ordering. If you have other, non pre-order items to purchase you will need to order them through a separate transaction!
Even though having to wait is no fun, when new inventory finally arrives I think it feels a lot like Christmas! Hey, speaking of presents I have some prize winners to announce! Congratulations to Linda C. and Jenny M.! As a way to say thanks for your comments on my blog last week we’d love to send you a gift! As usual, I am not posting last names or email addresses for everyone’s privacy, so if you think you’re one of these lucky winners please check your email! You can also contact Heidi at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have not already received an email from her.

If you didn’t win this week, don’t give up! We choose winners on weekly basis from the comments made to the blog.
I don’t know about you, but after the holiday last weekend and with all this warm weather we’ve been having, I’m definitely in a very Summer-time/red, white, and blue kind of mood. We recently decorated The Gathering with some of my favorite red, white, and blue quilts, and of course it looks awesome! This morning I filled in for Shelley LIVE on “Shop Talk“ and we took a look at each one of the quilts on display. If you’re looking for a patriotic summer time project or simply need ideas, you should really check it out! There are a lot of really stunning options to choose from and a variety of sizes. Catch the replay by clicking the link below! Ok everyone, bye for now! I’ll be back tomorrow for Moda Blockheads 4 Wednesday! We’re on block #11 this week. Are you keeping up? See you then! ~Lisa
