Spring at The Pine Needle

Spring has definitely sprung at The Pine Needle! We're re-stocking after the whirlwind that was the Sewing and Stitch Expo in Puyallup, WA and there's lots of sunny colors and cute animals just in time for spring projects.

Bunnies and birdies and butterflies, oh my!

Summer Roads is our newest kit using our Crossroads pattern. It looks great in soft, springtime colors (to include the pink chosen by Pantone to be one of the colors for 2016).

Pink paired with grey and a deeper red says spring fling! Valentine's Day may have passed, but romance can still be in the air.

We've still got Katya kits and Quick Curve rulers for this stunner of a quilt. Some new cheery retro looking fabrics fit right in to the mix.

Spring means babies, and we've got lots of adorable flannels, and self-binding baby blanket kits that are perfect last minute shower gifts.
