Market is over — Jo’s new book “Banner Day” has arrived at her studio just in time for Summer — Market orders and auto-ship orders have been packed and shipped by last Friday, May 27! The shipping girls stayed late two nights to be sure all was caught up.
“Banner Day” — 16 sensational projects — some with a patriotic theme — 68 pages plus 3 pull-out pages with applique designs in full size and layout for ease of use. Don’t forget that just because a quilt is made in red and blue, you may want to make your shop model in fall colors or reds and greens for the holidays. Several of the quilts are traditional and would work year round, besides during the summer in reds and blues.

You can watch all of the Andover Spring Quilt Market presentations on Andover’s YouTube channel — www.youtube.com/andoverfabrics.
Great News! The free-to-use design by our friend, Candy Hargrove, using the “Carolina” fabric collection is now posted on the Andover Fabric’s website. I love this quilt — traditional but also with a contemporary feel — visually exciting! Click on the image to download it from Andover’s website.
Perhaps you haven’t seen them yet, but Andover Fabrics now offers laminates! Here are the pieces that are available as “laminates” from my “Annandale” line.
Ask your sales rep about these — your customers will love them!
I hope you have enjoyed time off during the long holiday weekend. I also hope and pray that the severe storms calm down and we have lazy, hazy days of Summer!
