Christmas, Colour and 2015

December had flown by, as it usually does.  I still have ideas to share, more things quilters might want and need for quilting.  Have you heard about Kraft-tex?  Have you tried the new Studio 180 tool, Corner Pop?  Are you planning to take part in the July Shop Hop?  Yikes!
This is the season to take time for family and friends.  Relax and enjoy.  It is the memories made visiting that last long after the festivities are over. 
Here is the last idea for quilters this year.  What is your colour style?  Everyone is drawn to colour so differently.  We see quilters drawn to their preferences when choosing fabrics for the next project.  They struggle when making a quilt for someone else who has given them preferences out of their comfort zone.  That is where we can help.  That is the fun part of working in a quilt shop.  Thanks for letting us play with you in choosing fabrics for your quilt.  It is the fun part. 
Looking forward to next season, visit the Pantone Color Institute website to see where colour is heading in 2015.  The colours used for fashion in the spring are seen in the fabrics coming in the first half of the year.  Colours are cooler and softer.  There are still some spots of brightness but the overall feel is more subtle.  Will you be the first to spot the colour of the year?

Marsala is a subtly seductive shade, one that draws us in to its embracing warmth.Leatrice EisemanExecutive Director, Pantone Color Institute®                

This hearty, yet stylish tone is universally appealing and translates easily to fashion, beauty, industrial design, home furnishings and interiors.

  1. The color for next year is my favorite! Yay! It goes with everything . I often pair it up with " mustard" . It also looks great with a deeper shade of teal.
    Oh, the fun I' m going to have. And it's my year to do some serious re- decorating:) and painting ! The ladies at " The Marsh Store" are fantastic. So very helpful! Shirley has many many bolts of fabric and is always up for the challenge we may come to her with. If she doesn't have it...she will order it for you And give you a discount to boot! How can I go wrong..... Maybe more fabric than I will ever " need" Nah! Never hoping to own up to that:).
    See you soon Shirley....been too long already!
    Hugs Marg :)
