Quilt Ideas from Little Quilts using their newest line Tanyard Creek

Here are some new quilt ideas using..."Tanyard Creek", the new line of fabric by Little Quilts.

"Hospitality" is a 26" x 26" quilt using the Tanyard Creek fabricline. The pattern is from a "Reflections of the South" collection designedby Little Quilts for Henry Glass & Co. The simple pineapple applique, along-time symbol of hospitality in the south, is perfect for this charmingwall hanging to welcome friends. It would make a perfect house warming gift!

This quilt was made by Little Quilts staff member Linda Rice usingthe Tanyard Creek fabric line. She used the Josephine's Sampler pattern byLori Smith (From My Heart To Your Hands). Patterns and all fabrics for thisquilt are available at Little Quilts.

We love the old antique reproduction look of the new "Tanyard Creek"line of fabric from Little Quilts. The line also includes several newshirtings. The entire line is available from Little Quilts along withbundles and fat quarters.

Barbara Jones of Quilt Soup Blogs for HG!

Simply Sweet by Barbara Jones of Quilt Soup

Simply Sweet made it’s debut at Fall Quilt Market in Houston. I love this collection! We designed the sweetest floral stripes, a companion floral lattice, and a delicate little vine print.

We combined a funky oval print and our signature dots, stripes and checks to round out the collection. We were so inspired that we all ready have about 6 new quilts planned for this collection.

The first one we made is called Ladybug Hug and the pattern ships November 1st.
Simply Sweet ships in January 2010. I’m telling you that I can hardly wait!
