Welcome Back to Sewing!

Summer isn’t quiiiiiite over yet, in fact some of the prettiest days of the year are still ahead of us. But as kids return to school and vacations are behind us, it DOES start to feel like it’s time to start thinking about cozy things to do indoors. Plus, life seems to settle just a bit this time of year and we have TIME to think about new creative projects.

So, instead of saying it’s “back to school” time, for us, it’s “back to sewing” time!

I had a wonderful summer spending time away…in fact I even closed the online shop for several weeks for a true break from things and it was wonderful! A recharge was needed and, Great News, the online shop is OPEN again and I have a ton of beautiful fabrics ready to brighten your mailbox and sewing room this Fall.

Just before closing for the summer break, a brand new collection arrived from Tilda Fabrics, Chic Escape. I love that this collection has a slightly different color palette than we are used to from Tilda. It features richer, more saturated colors with a slightly dusky feel. The prints feel more classical than cottage, but still feature the beautiful patterns and scale we love about Tilda. See our full selection of Tilda Fabrics <<here>>


Bolt fabrics are still at a special price of $9/yard…that’s for every print, every designer, every brand. Wow!

And of course, it wouldn’t be back to sewing and starting something fresh and exciting without a new pattern! If you haven’t checked the selection lately, I’m sure you’ll find something to get your creativity flowing in the Color Girl pattern shop. I’ve been in the mood to play with dresden designs lately, so I think I’ll finish up a WIP or two and start thinking up some new patterns. How about you? in the mood to try equilateral triangles? Curved piecing? You’ll never go wrong with a classic star like the Fortune quilt pattern. I love to see what you make with my patterns, so please share your makes with me via email or tag me on IG or FB (@colorgirlquilts).

I hope you are as jazzed as I am to get back to sewing this fall! I have some really exciting new projects in the works I can’t wait to tell you about. Soon! Meantime, thank you for your patience as we were closed this summer. I cannot wait to welcome you back to Color Girl Quilts.

Happy Sewing,
