New Fabrics, New Yarns, New Classes, All New Fun things

Fall is a busy time here at Knit & Bolt. We get lots of new lines of fabric in. New yarns are released into the world. And our instructors also just pack the schedule with fun classes for you all. So that means I have a lot of things to share with you.


New Fabrics

We have new lines from Moda, Blend, and Cotton+Steel

We have Moda’s Metropolis by Basic Grey newly in stock and their Dot Dot Boo Halloween line too.

Blend Fabric’s Boo Bash Halloween line reminds me of my childhood.

The Moonrise fabric is Alexia Abegg’s last Cotton+Steel collection. I’m excited to have all of the fabrics from this witchy fabric line.

Rashida Coleman-Hale’s last line for Cotton+Steel is Akoma. The line was inspired by the Adinkra symbols of the Akan of Ghana and the Gyaman of the Cote d’Ivoire. It is a bold and strong line.


New Yarns

We have new Rasta colors from Malabrigo. A new line Scout from Kelbourne Woolens. And a fun new sample in Cloud9Fibers Bennoto. The sample is
Open Sky

The Halloween Quilt is finished

I finished my Halloween quilt.

When it isn't living at the shop, it will be on my lap with the cats at home.

I used each of the fabrics from Cotton+Steel's Lil' Monsters collaboration collection. I added a few spider webs from Moda's Eerily Elegant collection to round it out. The eyeball bias tape was a suggestion from our quilting instructor Annie Chen. 

The pattern I followed was from FilmInTheFridge (which is a great name by the way). It was her Sleeping Porch 2x4 quilt, with not a lot of attention paid to size. My Finished quilt ended up being 39" x 64". An odd size, but great for a couch back and lap with kittens. 

I'm looking forward to Halloween!

It's never to early for Halloween

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. 

 Moda's Eerily Elegant collection has a lot of spidery goodness

 Cotton+Steel's Lil'Monsters collection has some of the cutest cat and some spooky party goers.

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?
