Introducing another one of our wonderful customers...


Say hello to Candice Ayala. She loves shopping at Michael Levine, Inc, but her favorite place is The Loft. After meeting her a few weeks ago, I knew we would love to feature her on our blog. I always find it inspiring to see what our customers are making with our fabric. She has recently got her blog up and running so take  peek and hopefully you will be inspired.



Here's one of her pieces ...


You can see more at her gallery.

A big thank you to Candice and all our bloggers out there!

More to see...

Here is a quick peek at what is going online as I type...

Shelburne Falls from Denyse Schmidt

The graceful swirling skirts and old-fashioned courtliness of New England contra dancing inspired Shelburne Falls, Denyse Schmidt’s latest collection of quilting cottons for FreeSpirit Fabrics. Long enamored with the foot-tapping rhythms and joyful movement of historic American folk dance, Denyse’s has created a timeless collection embodying that exuberance of spirit and small-town charm.


Her inspiration may be small towns, but her impact is big.


I love the combination of florals, plaids, and geometric. They just work so well together.

Here is lovely simple quilt that she shows for inspiration. While it is really simple, it makes me want to pull it off the door and curl up under it. I think that is what a quilt is supposed to say.


Post is here from Aneela Hoey.

It's springtime in the meadow and the perfect time to pick a posy of pretty flowers, hop through the grass with the bunny rabbits or write fun little stories of all the adventures you're having. These dainty illustrations are simply darling in springy soft shades of fresh picked lilac, honeysuckle and primrose.


What a great pallete for a little girls room!

Moda has also given us a wonderful collection called Indigo Crossing by Minick & Simpon's. Check out their blog for some great inspiration.

No other fabric evokes 19th century America more than an indigo cotton. This collection of indigoes is taken from snippets and scraps from sewing baskets and linen cupboards, as well as from our own collections. We love a stack of indigo and white quilts stacked to the ceiling! We love the geometric beauty of blue and white. Freshly laundered and smelling of lavender, an indigo and white quilt is true comfort.


Indigo is so trendy right now. I love it mixed with a pop of color, say red, yellow, or orange. Take a classical look to a new level.

Last one for today is a new Folklorico. Take a look at these new skulls. So fun!


More to come next week!
