Aubade: a song to the dawn

By | Quilting | No Comments

Aasst-aubade-a-song-to-the-dawn-imageUBADE: a song to the dawn, is a new fabric line from Janet Clare from Moda fabrics. This new line just arrived this week at BSQ.  We are very excited because Janet Clare’s previous line of fabric named “Nocturne” was one of our fastest selling fabric lines.  This fabric collection features navy blues, medium blues, ecrus, and grays.  It is a very versatile group as it can read masculine or feminine.  The denim look to this collection is awesome. We have projects in the store featuring her “Nocturne” group. The “Aubade” group is like an extension of the “Nocturne” group.  You could easily combine both fabric lines in the same projects. So if you have pieces left over from “Nocturne” you have new options!  There are wonderful blender fabrics that accompany this group as well.  We received Layer Cakes, Charm Packs, and Jelly Rolls as well as bolts of fabric.  We don’t expect them to last long!
