Hello everyone!

We’ve really pulled out all the stops this Spring, with Benartex collections from Nancy Halvorsen,

Jackie Robinson, Ann Lauer, Rose Ann Cook, Cheryl Haynes and Caryl Bryer Fallert Gentry. But it

doesn’t stop there! Our Contempo Studio offers fabulous new lines from Amanda Murphy, Cherry

Guidry and Matthew Pridemore. We are also proud to introduce a new designer, Amy Friend, who

brings a minimalist modern touch to our collections.

Did you like “Dance of the Dragonflies” from Kanvas? Wait till you see Kanvas’s new “Floral

Impressions” collection! For the outdoorsman (or woman), Kanvas also offers a woodsy collection

called (appropriately) “Into the Woods.”

Welcome back to Nancy Halvorsen! As you will see, Nancy’s

new collection, “Bree” has all the color and charm you would

expect from an Art to Heart Collection AND… it has an

accompanying book called IMAGINE! Imagine features a

wonderful Block of the Month and extra projects that we just

can’t wait to try.

New

Designer

Amy Friend

Designer of

When I was a little girl, I said I wanted to grow up to be a mommy and an

artist. I’d like to think that I am just that! I am the mother to three children.

Previously, I studied art history and worked as a museum collections curator. I

made the choice to say home with my children when my second child was born. I

now express my creative side through sewing and pattern design. Early on, I found

time for this “during quiet time” when the kids were napping or at least enjoying

some quiet in their rooms. Nowadays, I sew while they are at school.

I love varying the style of my quilts but generally lean toward modern quilting. My

real passion is paper piecing. I love everything from the design process through

fabric selection and sewing.

Books By

Amy Friend

These books are available through Brewer and Checker.

Or you can order from Lucky Spool Media at

www.luckyspool.com

Author, Amy Friend, teaches

you to take your time to make

thoughtful fabric choices before

you begin piecing for truly dynamic

results. Amy Friend’s intentional

piecing method doesn’t strive just

for the finish line. Instead, you’ll

learn to focus on precise, thoughtful

work. Amy teaches you to ask questions

she’s consistently asks herself:

What fabric would make the design

better? Which design and method

would best showcase the fabric?

What choices would make the project

uniquely yours?

Love to create repeating blocks in

your quilts but tired of the same patterns?

Step away from the ordinary and try

your hand at a new technique-based

approach to improvisation. Gorgeous

photographs illustrate 10 beautiful projects

where Amy Friend seamlessly bridges

the gap between improvised design

and technical execution. Discover a

unique approach to creating one-of-akind

blocks with guided exercises that

explore scale, symmetry and alternate

gridwork. Then, with Amy’s help, you’ll

have the opportunity to design your

own patterns.
