Ladies' Album Yardage Shipped!

Becky Brown
Block 1: Portsmouth Star for Threads of Memory.


I hear the yardage for my latest reproduction collection for Moda has been shipped and should be in your shop momentarily. 


The precut packages for Ladies' Album have been out for a few weeks. Now you can buy those yards and yards for borders, sashing and any other ideas you might have.

The best way to show off this collection of late-19th-century reproduction prints is to show you Becky Brown's blocks, the models for our Threads of Memory Block of the Month. 

Becky Brown
Block 2: Mercer County Star for Threads of Memory.

I designed the star blocks on the theme of the underground railroad and she's stitching this version Ladies' Album prints. She loves to fussy cut with terrific results.

Block 3: New Garden Star for Threads of Memory.

"New Garden Star" was just posted today Saturday, March 29, 2014. Check out the blog with the free pattern here:


I like to design a fabric label for the back of your quilt so here's a free printable label for your quilt made with my Ladies' Album collection. 



Click on the picture. Save it as a JPG or a Word file. Print it on treated cotton. I left you plenty of space to write under the 19th-century flourish. I planned it to be 5" square.
