Saturday Surprise Sampler starts soon!

We have a new round of our Saturday surprise sampler program starting in a week from today.
We had a lot of people wondering what the colors are going to be this year,
The fabrics we will be using are all from Andover. They include chambrays and fabrics designed by Jo Morton.   You can find out more about Jo Morton here. She often uses inspiration and patterns of prints from the 1800s.

So this is a sneak peek at some of the upcoming combinations.
These aren't all of the fabrics but will add the others into the hoop display as they arrive in the store, most likely in September.
This is my chart of the fabrics.

To give the blocks a bit of a twist this year, I've decided to make them all repeating patterns reminiscent of the sort you might see on intricate tiled floors,

each kit can be sewn into one twelve inch finished block, or left as four smaller blocks that finish at six inches.  This will give you lots more options for how you set the blocks!  I can't even imagine all the possibilities that people will come up with!

Hope you have fun sewing this year!
