Creating and sewing are so much more fun when you have beautiful fabrics on hand to use.  More often than not, we start off with some beautiful fabric, and design a garment around it.  Having a great stash on hand is essential in both of our studios!  We never know when those creative juices will start flowing and most of the time it happens after the fabric shops are all closed. 

Are you looking for another fun fabric to add to your stash? 

We have recently been introduced to Silk Road from the amazing designers at Michael Miller Fabrics.

Silk Road features rich batik inspired fabrics in jewel tones.  The saturated colors are perfect for spring statement pieces.  They would also be stunning for throw pillows, colorful quilts, and home decor.




Kaitlin over at Michael Miller sewed up our Emmaline Pattern in Silk Road's Magenta Spice, and it is absolutely beautiful!


We were so excited to meet up with Kathy Miller and the Michael Miller team at Quiltcon this week.  The Michael Miller booth was fun and beautiful! We will have another post on Quiltcon to come, but here are a few shots we took in the Michael Miller booth!

Here we are with Christine Osmers and Kathy Miller.

We are so pleased that Michael Miller fabrics has offered to Giveaway 5 yards of Silk Road to one lucky blog reader!  Enter below to win:

According to my daughter, this is the fabric that is ‘in’ right now. So, since I spoil her (even though she is 23 years old!!) I’d make her a gorgeous summer dress in the green/blue print. Now me, I’m a pink girl, but those aren’t her colors.
