We Love It!

We love it when we receive lovely mail and the ones where you make something from our fabrics steals our hearts. If you are interested in sending a submission in to us check out the details below.

Here is an close up view of the sweet quilt. The bold colors and the critters are so fun and we know that the babies will love it.

Diane Beavers from Virginia sent us this adorable photograph with the following note.

I was the winner of the "At the Zoo" fabric bundle in the Countdown to the Holidays in December 2014.  I was so surprised and I thank you so much for the 15 one-half yard cuts.  It is just adorable!  Attached are two pics of one quilt top I've completed thus far.  It's a gift to my two newly born great nieces, Olivia and Cecelia.  My sister Ruthie is their grandmother, and she recently lost her job so I've gifted her w/the rest of the bundle to make quilts and such for her other grandchildren.

Thank you so much for making our day Diane. Please continue to follow the Henry Glass blog and other social media. We are continuing our giveaways this year.

Monkey Around

Monkey Around by Marie Cole is a fun collection featuring adorable monkeys having all sorts of fun. Marie used a bright and bold palette to color the prints.

One of the prints is a panel that can be cut and sewn to form a sweet book called Monkey Around. These monkeys really mean business though and they will teach your little one some very important words.

For design inspiration, there are a couple of free patterns for you to download from our library.  One quilt is designed with the panel in mind and the other is an easy pieced quilt that would great for a baby gift.

Designer Inspiration: Kim Diehl

Henry Glass designers are diverse and talented and we are proud to show off their creations. Kim Diehl's Simple Whatnots - Collection 2 quilts were sent to the HG offices recently and we were so inspired to see them up close. We thought that we'd feature our designers' projects so that you can be inspired too. This latest collection of Kim's is going to be appearing in quilt shops everywhere. General details for the club can be found on the Henry Glass website here and there is a list of participating quilt shops on the site as well. [Click here for shops.]

Have a great day!
