      Join Us For The Royal Baby Sew-A-Long!  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
We are excited about THE Royal Baby that is due in July, and we couldn't help but dream up a super fun Sew-a-Long (SAL) project in honor of William and Kate's firstborn. We are hosting a Knit-a-Long and Crochet-a-Long using our Lorna's Laces Limited Edition Royal Baby Colors, and we just had to offer our fabric customers a way to celebrate as well.
Royal Baby Shepherd Worsted
We were lucky enough to have a bonafide quilting genius join our ranks recently (that would be Gus, he is seriously amazing) and he has created the cutest of baby quilts for us all to sew together! He chose Kaffe Fassett's Shot Cottons in a beautiful (and regal) unisex color palette and added a little bit of applique for a truly unique baby quilt. The finished design will measure 40" x 40", the perfect size for all the uses a little one might demand!
Gus's Royal Baby Quilt
The SAL will begin on Wednesday, July 3rd and will be hosted on the Jimmy Beans Wool Blog. Each Wednesday for six weeks, we'll release another piece of the quilt directions. On the 7th week, we'll show you how to put it altogether. If you are interested in making Gus's version of the Royal Baby quilt, pre-cut kits are available on our website and include all of the fabric you need to complete the project. It is free to participate and we hope you'll join us! Be sure to check the Jimmy Beans Wool Blog on July 3rd to get started. Until then, happy quilting!

      New Birch Fabrics and Lunden Designs Patterns  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
I absolutely fell in love with Birch fabrics during our trip to Quilt Market in Portland! Their modern color palette, combined with whimsical designs, creates prints that are perfect for adults and children alike. We can't get enough of the Robotic collection, which features everything from chemistry beakers and library bookshelves to rocket ships and spacebots! All of the fabrics in this line are made from 100% certified organic premium quilting weight cotton and are super soft. Part of the reason we fell in love with this fabric was the beautiful quilt made by Lunden Designs featuring this fabric. The pattern is called Star System and we loved it so much, we ordered a bunch of their patterns, too! Jeanne thought about making the Star System pattern, but wanted to make a smaller baby blanket instead so she dived right in and has begun making a quilt using Robotic Patchwork. This particular print has it all, combining each print in the collection without the hassle of piecing them together. It looks great, Jeanne!
Robotic wasn't the only collection from Birch Fabrics that we couldn't resist; we also fell for the Safari Soiree collection. All of the Beans were excited to see these two Birch collections when they arrived at the store, but Kaylynn was particularly excited to see Safari Soiree since she is using the Soiree Cream print for various projects in her nursery for her baby boy who is due this month! Who can resist the adorable monkeys, toucans, and elephants in this collection? Certainly not us. Just like with the Robotic collection, there is a Lunden Designs pattern that would look great in the Safari Soiree collection. Although Lunden Designs used a different line from Birch Fabrics, we think the Elephant March pattern would be adorable with the Ele Train prints as the stripes. Stay tuned for more great collections from Birch fabrics arriving throughout the summer, including jersey knits!

      Sew Red Project Feature: The Asian Modern Pillow  
Jimmy Beans Wool Newsletters
 
Original Asian Modern Pillow
If you hadn't guessed by now, we could talk all day and night about how much we love Laura's latest book, Sew Red. But it's not just us, Sew Red is inspiring sewists and crafters everywhere! Rochelle of the Lucky Lucile blog, posted a great review of the book, plus her own take on one of the 30 patterns, the Asian Modern Pillow designed by Linda Lee (pictured left).
We love Rochelle's version of this trendy pillow! A lover of red and blue, her fabric choices were admired by many of us here at the shop. The Asian Modern Pillow is a versatile project and can be done in a variety of fabrics and prints. The patchwork pillow design is great for using up fabric ends that could also coordinate with other home dec projects such as quilts, table runners and placemats, or curtains!

Be sure to check out the Lucky Lucile blog for the full book review, plus more pictures of Rochelle's patchwork pillow and her adorable pup!
