New Fabric Collections for Fall and Winter!

It has been a busy time at Alaska Quilting Adventures ~ lots of new fabric collections for Fall and Winter are instock.  For your convenience we have links to matching free quilt patterns - browse the right hand column.  Regardless of your style there is something for everyone.  Some of the collections are from old favorites, but Moda has introduced some new designers that have really added new options in taste and style. It is so exciting to see what's coming next from all the great Moda designers.

"Awesome" Fall colors in Sandy Gervis new collection:

Saltbox Harvest by Deb Strain brings us a great Fall collection.   Is it primitive or is it modern?  

Laundry Basket Quilts brings back a favorite collection of batiks ~ Let It Snow.  This collection has the first batik quilt panel I have ever seen!!!  Love the cool icy colors, blue and white has always been a favorite.

Let It Snow Quilt Panel

One of my favorite new designers ~ French General ~ has a beautiful new collection called Lumiere De Noel.  This "Christmas" collection has a classic design that doesn't have any design elements that limit it to just Christmas.  AQA has a ;large selection in this line - I plan to make some beautiful aprons as gifts out of this fabric!

If you love sweet snowmen, you'll love Makin' New Friends by Deb Strain.  Every year Deb designs a fun snowman collection.  I actually just found some Charm Packs from an earlier collection (2007?) called, "Let it Snow, Let it Snow" in the stash.  I haven't had a chance to list them yet....  but will be offering soon.

Park Avenue designed by 3 Sister's is stylish in rich colors.  3 Sister's has always been my absolute favorite!  There is just something about these fabrics, it is not just how they look, but how they feel.  The actual weight and feel of the fabric is a touch of luxury.

Everyone will love Fruitcake when they see basicgrey's followup to last year's Christmas collection Figgy Pudding.  We have a large selection of the new Fruitcake and still some of the Figgy Pudding instock ~ the two collections coordinte beautifully.

Kate Spain, another great new designer brings us one the most fun Christmas collections!!  12 Days of Christmas is sure to make you smile.  This collection reminds me of a cross between whimsical Dr. Zuess type designs and fun unexpected color combinations - the result just makes me smile!!  LOVE IT!
