    Temptation... rather a lot of it...

    For the first time, ever, Hoffman has published a wonderful - I don't know what you call it, maybe an e-catalog? - of their spring 2013 lines. It's really neat, it even looks like you're turning pages when you browse through it.

    They're showing all the new collections, and the free quilt patterns that will be available. (I didn't check to see if they had the directions up on their site yet.) It shows you which colors of their basic blender lines go with the new fabrics, which will be REALLY USEFUL in terms of knowing what the colors will be (especially if you have any of those blenders in your stash already).

    It's way cool, and I thought you all might like to know about it and take a peek too.

    By the way, in their projects they are showing some that combine batiks and prints. I know that issue is always of interest.

    If money and time were not a consideration, which project would you do? (I'll go first... I like the colors of Nature's song, but the Birds and Blossoms quilt is more appealing to me.)

    That was really well done.
    Great presentation, and the page turning worked much more smoothly than Hancock's digital catalog.
    Thanks for posting the link.

    I can't say any project caught my eye, but the new 840's are divine. DIVINE!

    Although, I did recently pull out my Neon Ocean collection (from maybe 8 years ago) and it looks like the Avalon collection might fit right in with the other fabrics.

    It is wonderful eye candy! It reminds me of the Hancock-Paducah catalog. I just received my very first one in print and I gotta tell ya, it is fabulous! Everyone in my family has spent more than a couple minutes looking through it and drooling over the fabrics (and none of them are quilters!)

    None of the project quilts caught my eye but the Istanbul line did. I'm a sucker for golds, rich browns, and jewel tones. I think I was an Indian princess in a former life!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    These remind me of the 1980s colors and some of the patterns. Are big shoulder pads coming back too? I like the batiks...seems more "active" or colorful.

    Thank you for this link. So many pretty FREE patterns! The Hen Peck pattern is nice and has a great chicken silhouette that could be used on other projects. If you are looking for a beautiful table runner, check out Antoinette Falls--it just might be the project I've been saving my batiks for. I also like Tweet Tweet, appliqued trees and pieced houses---a smaller version would make a darling wall hanging.

    Avalon caught my eye; I love oceany anything and this is GREAT! Currently collecting (more and more, like I need any more!) for a scrappy quilt but don't think I can wait that long for some Avalon.....sigh....
    Mistakes are just opportunities to invent a new quilting technique!

    I like the Sayomi but in the Bonsai Gold color line, I also thought Dining Al Fresco was pretty cute - maybe a one block wonder?
