PREVIEW and Wait!

 A quick reminder.... tomorrow is the last day to enter the drawing for all my applique supplies and a few patterns.  
 If you didn't know, I set this drawing up on Stash Manicure on Tuesday, but I am taking entries until Friday evening.  I am aware that Blogger was having some issues not letting people comment, so I will take all comments--either here or on the post at Stash to enter you in the drawing.  I am choosing two winners, and this prize package is worth over $65!  So be sure to enter!!!

 Today I got some new strike-offs on my new line,  SORBET GARDEN.  I told you all about my booth being based on my sorbet shop, but I don't think I ever did show you the fabrics up close.  When I was designing this line, I was thinking citrus.  You know my "Citrus Salad" pattern?  Well I constantly get requests for kits, so now I will be able to kit that quilt.
The lighting was not great, but here are a few pics:
Here's the GREENS.  They turned out so beautiful!  I love the variety in value and texture.

ORANGES are the perfect compliment to the greens, and they add such a spark to the line. 


 The WHITES:  I used gray this time to make the tonal pieces.  I just love them!  White with gray is so crisp and it is perfect with this group. 

 The PINKS are a little bit of sweetness added to the group.  Can't you just see them in a soft cuddly baby quilt?  Pink grapefruit, anyone?

 YELLOWS didn't photograph very well, but they are yummy!  Lemony and crisp, these are the perfect shade of yellow!

 Of course, I had to include REDS!  These are great because there is that soft red that is so usable and a brighter clear red for punch.  By the way, don't you just love the graphic herringbone against the swirly bird print?

I must admit, my favorite part of the line is .... 
the selvage!  This is my 4th fabric line with Henry Glass, and I still can't believe it!  I am so fortunate to be able to do what I love--and share it with you.

Be sure to ask your local quilt shop to order SORBET GARDEN!  I will have fabric at the end of the summer, so you will have to wait a bit, but it will be worth it!

My friend Jess is a pattern maker for Northcott. I've been lucky enough to test patterns for her. And ever since I tested her 'Phires Radiance quilt, I've been dreaming of doing it in JUST THESE colors...the colors of your sorbet line. I can't wait to get some! They are so lovely.
