Here is a quick pin cushion tutorial by Amy from Diary of a quilter    http://www.diaryofaquilter.com/2016/03/wool-pincushion-tutorial.html if you would like to have a play with the wool fabric.

The lovely clear colours of Bee Basics by Lori Holt for Riley Blake

Beautiful blues an addition to our Notepad range

A nice grey to add to your Christmas fabrics Sparkle by Whistler Studios for Windham fabrics.

A couple of panels make a great floor playmat for the toddler in your life.

And lastly novelty fabric from Nutex.

TERIAL MAGIC
Fabric Stabilizers

Ever wanted to transfer a complicated pattern onto fabric and your usual transfer techniques just don’t make the grade.
Terial Magic may just be the answer. Soaking your fabric in the non-toxic, organic compound, allowing it to dry, ironing it to make it stiffer still then running it through the normal paper tray on your computer makes transferring a pattern a piece of cake. But the best part is, you can then rinse out the spray formula and your fabric returns to the way it was before so it fits into your hoop easily and stitching is not hampered at all.
It has a multitude of other uses such as machine embroidery, fabric flowers, arts and crafts to name just a few. To expand your creativity visit : terialarts.com


Two very different completed Long Time Gone Quilts Jenny's is scrappy and Shanon's Alison Glass which makes it just sparkle
