...when the sun is shining, the birds are singing, the trees are all in bloom (sniff, sniff, cough, wheeze), and a quilter's fancy turns to thoughts of brightly colored prints. It's perfect timing to show off Color Splash, a new digital print from a new fabric design group called 3 Wishes Fabrics.
The delicate color washed birds provide beautiful balance to the vibrant hues in its companion pieces.
One of our wonderful teachers has already stitched up a Lucky 13 using this colorful new line...
- and another of our talented fabric aficionados has big plans involving a variegated array of batiks with center squares of lively little feathered friends! What will you do?

And the comfortable, beautifully decorated retreat is outfitted especially for the needs of quilters.
Our featured project for the March retreat is Rainbow Swirls. This is a curvy log house quilt and should be lots of fun.
