Hancock's of Paducah is an online shop that produces a seasonal paper catalogue. Their pages are filled with photographs of the latest offerings. The best part? The pages are literally filled - 3 x 5 two inch photos line each of the 166 some pages. I can look at it for hours and see something new each time I pick it up. The catalogue is also available on-line...very cool...check it out. However, you can not view it on an Apple device. It has something to do with the various software involved and I really think they need to work it out. I'd love to view this on my Ipad.
Since I only have a little while - my #2 son went to school feeling poorly and I promised him that I would rescue him before football practice (ya - it isn't football season - and the sport is treated like a core subject class here in Texas - but that is another story.) There isn't enough time to actually do much of anything so I thought I would share a few of my favorites from the new catalogue.
First off - How absurd is this?!
|"Where is my 'Stache?'" by Alexander Henry #AH 7567 A|
Don't you think the mustaches need to be used with this? Ooh-la-la the stories that quilt could tell!
|Wine Glass Marks on the Tablecloth #TT 8374 CREAM|
These next few were my favorites from my first peruse.
|Wildflower Poppy Blooms Harvest #WP 4002 253|
|Wildflower Poppies Scroll Brown #44003 285|
|Wildflower Baroque Damask Harvest #44004 283|
|Orange Crush Merry Go Round Quilt #TT 8966 MGR QK|
This quilt is offered using a line of fabric by Alice Kennedy for Timeless Treasures called Orange Crush. The catalogue page is practically aflame with bright orange, yellow, and pink....and very easy to locate as it glows! My oldest niece is graduating from OSU in the spring. Wouldn't it be fun to make this for her. (Any volunteers?)
In the section at the back where all of the fun lives....that is fun that doesn't include strange mustaches...I found these delightful prints. They are all part of "The Neighborhood" by Monica Lee for Timeless Treasures.
|Neighborhood Pets & Fences #TT 8846 GREEN|
|Neighborhood Blue #TT 8845 BLUE|
|Neighborhood Cats and Shadows #TT 8850 WHITE|
On a more dignified note....Communique by Graphic 45 takes up the trend of introducing type face, and vintage machine images in fabric. I have no idea what I would do with it, but I have to say I like the whole line. This quilt kit uses a bit of each of the fabrics.
|Communique Quilt Kit #WP 85515 QK|
|Red Velvet Dream #M PSD 407 QK|
Designed by Geri Robinson this quilt showcases fabrics from the Papillon line by 3Sisters for Moda.
There is so much more to share. Go! Look on line. Sign up for a free catalogue! You'll be glad you did.
I'm sure there is something there for everyone. Batiks, reproductions, modern trends, solids, Charlie Brown, Cat in the Hat (don't get me started...he is evil), kits, tools, and more. One more before I go....

I am in no way affiliated with Hancock's of Paducah, their vendors, or catalogue. I have not been paid to voice my opinion. I have purchased fabric from them in the past and found them to be a quality group to work with.
