Halloween is my favorite holiday. Coming up with a costume idea, making it, and seeing everyone's creations is so much fun. This year I have the opportunity to make a fun halloween quilt out of the cool fabrics that have come in.
With Moda's Eerily Elegant line and Cotton+Steels Lil'Monsters line I think I can come up with something fun. Simple and small, but fun.
What are you going to make with halloween fabrics?
We recently got in Blue Sky Fibers' new limited edition yarn American Scenic. This yarn is a partnership between Blue Sky Fibers and Tabbethia Haubold, the fiber designer of Long Island Yarn & Farm. They have worked together to come up with a very cool, squishy yarn. The yarn is even spun in a family-run US mill in small batches. And as craft brewers can tell you, small batches are the best.
The four colors that the yarn comes in are all in stock at the shop. I have them sitting on the front counter with me. That way I can give them a squeeze during the day. I thought about keeping them all for myself. However, sharing them with all of you and seeing your creations is much more fun.
