Alewives Fabrics Low-Volume Monthly Fabric Club
Friend Megan Bruns did a monthly fabric club with Alewives Fabric (Damariscotta Mills, Maine) that she truly enjoyed. She’s using those fabrics in her Passacaglia Millefiori Quilt. (See earlier posts.)
Alewives is doing a low-volume version, and I just signed up. I LOVE the low-volume fabrics the market is putting out now. This club starts in May and is already filling. They will limit membership as they are a small shop.
Here’s the information:

In the newsletter message I got from them, they included the prettiest picture of an English Paper Piecing project from Tracey Jay Quilts–called a “Morning Star” block. I just ordered that for $6 too.
The block is in the center, and the pattern forms through color manipulation. The package comes with a blank coloring plan.
Isn’t this gorgeous. Low volume prints and brights. Heaven must be made of these colors!
Fussy cutting could add a whole new intricacy to this idea as well.
