You will learn to use slow and traditional hand sewing techniques such as appliqué and embroidery in a new way to make a unique textile narrative. Mandy's work is based on patching and piecing and uses antique quilts and scraps. …See More

Le Bouquet Francais


We are excited to announce the arrival of our Spring Quilting Collection from Moda!

Hope your springtime quilting is as colorful as can be!



Indigo Workshop in New York!


We're taking our Indigo Workshop on the road and heading to New York City in April!  We will be offering a one day workshop at the South Street Seaport Museum on Sunday, April 27th from 10-4pm. Join us to learn how to build an Indigo vat, the ancient Japanese craft of Shibori, and dyeing textiles all shades of blue.  This is a special French General workshop taught by Kaari and Molly Meng - we hope you can join us!
Sign up here if you would like to join us for this day of creativity in New York!

Charm Pack Cherry!

Now that I have learned to quilt, I have fallen in love with precuts!  Precuts are exactly what they sound like - precut pieces of fabric all ready to be sewn together - no cutting involved!  For each of our fabric collections with Moda, we receive the charm pack precut which consists of 42 squares of 5" fabric - a piece of each - 
if you will!


In anticipation of our new Spring Moda collection, Le Bouquet Francais, we made up a simple and fun quilt for Fat Quarter Shop using their Charm Pack Cherry pattern.


Here's a fun video they shot with step by step instructions:

And here's the free pattern:

Pick up a Bouquet Francais charm pack from Fat Quarter Shop and start sewing - you will be done before you know it!
