Adorable, affordable organic fabric from Alyssa Thomas' Critter Patch collection... The Victoria and Albert Museum's new collection of Vintage Florals includes this gorgeous late 19th century print by C.F.A. Voysey. Kate & Birdie's new Bluebird Park collection is the perfect blend of cute, quirky and colorful: this Japanese-influenced hummingbird print is a great example...  We have fallen in love with Kaffe Fassett's exuberant shot cottons and stripes of Indian cotton!

Fall Retreat Coming Up

Our fall quilt retreat at the Plaza Hotel is just around the corner! The semiannual On the Mountain quilt retreat, September 25th-28th, is one of the highlights of our year here. The weather is usually splendid, you have time to focus on your quilting and sewing projects before the holiday season closes in, you meet lots of fun and knowledgeable quilters--and you'll get a special discount at ThreadBear all weekend. Come and join in the fun--contact The Bear or Beth Glass of On the Mountain for more info or to sign up!

The Cadence Quilt

This 60" x 60" quilt was the big hit at ThreadBear's booth at the recent Quilt, Craft & Sewing Festival in Albuquerque. "Modern"..."Different"..."Original"...and "Masculine" were all frequently heard comments. This Pink Hippo design creates a very striking effect using only four fabrics--the solid of your choice plus three prints from Carol Van Zandt's new Pop Rocks collection. Modern it certainly is: no repetitive blocks here but lots of negative space, created primarily by a truly boffo print (click here to see it) that changes visual density from selvage to selvage. However, a word of warning: we have already heard from the manufacturer that this fabric is already sold out and will not be reprinted. So if you want to make this quilt, order our kit here or give us a call at the shop--this one is too good to last long.
