Sewlovelee--April Showers

April Showers…Mean More Time for Sewing

Enjoy those rainy sew days while you can. Yardwork and warm summer days will soon replace them. 

(All Mid-Atlantic Shop Hop)

It’s a great time to start planning your summer quilting adventure. The All Mid-Atlantic Shop Hop takes place during the months of July and August and includes 96 shops in 6 states! Sewlovelee is participating and will have shop hop magazines available soon which give details about the hop and map out all of the stores. In the meantime, get more information here

Hello new fabric and patterns

Flower Box

Renee Nanneman brings modern colors to this rich floral collection:
Dusty Teal Laurel, Cream Dogwood, Cherry Honeysuckle, Chartreuse Jasmine, Leaf Green Honeysuckle, and Light Pewter Jasmine.
Use these prints to make her mod pieced flower pattern (for FREE here).



We salute Andover’s fresh take on patriotic with this star-studded collection. Blue Star Circle is clearly the star of this grouping accompanied by Red and Blue Star Vine prints. The small print lights,  White Star Arrow and White Dotted Maze would make excellent background fabrics for any Quilt of Valor.

Dimples colors

Subtle nuances in color with each Dimple print make them the perfect blender. Some of your favorite colors are back in stock. Check out all of the Dimples here.



After the time and effort spent to create a quilt top, shouldn’t the quilt back be just as beautiful? 108” Wild Wander Lichen Stone by Windham combines subtle colors in a soothing natural flow so that you can flow effortlessly from the front to the back of your quilt.


Need a soft flowing summer dress? Use the Chelsea Garden Lawn by Moda to make Anna Marie Horner’s swing set.


New Patterns and Kits

Floret Bargello Bundle

Six Floret Wildflower prints blend colors with six soothing Grunge colors for one incredible soft rainbow bargello quilt. The pattern is free with the 12 fat quarter bundle.


Tilda’s Exploding Heart

Thank you Susan R. for sharing your beautiful Exploding Heart quilt made with Tilda fabrics. We liked it so much that we created a kit using Tilda fabrics in a violet colorway. All fabric for the top and binding, as well as the pattern, are included in the kit. We recommend Garden Vista Iris for the backing fabric (sold separately).


Upcoming Events and Classes

Community Sew-cials take place at Irvington Baptist Church parish hall every 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month. Why don't you join us? Get more info and sign up.
