Whoooo's Watching?

Judy Hansen's new collection, Nite Owls, just came in and we couldn't wait to share it with you!

Last fall, Judy designed Cook's Helper (more on that below). How did she get from cakes and sprinkles to hooting owls?

With a little help from the talented Mr. Van Gogh.
''I love the stars and swirls in the sky of Van Gogh's painting, Starry Night,'' Judy says. She created her own swirls and stars, added a moon, and then thought, ''What goes better with a night sky than a night owl?"

And the rest was history.
(Or is that hoot-story?)

''Nite Owls'' comes in both color and black and white—we mixed the two below to show you how the pop of color can add some great contrast to the spooky black and white. (Halloween quilt, anyone?) 

Black and white prints with a few color coordinates thrown in

Find Judy Hansen's free quilt pattern, "Peek-a-boo Nite Owl," featured on our website.


With summer in full swing, it's the perfect time to do some simple sewing and no-bake cooking with kids (keep them busy while they're out of school!)
We mentioned Judy's Cook's Helper fabrics earlier--there's a panel apron sized for children, and a print that features easy recipes like root beer floats, ants on a log, and purple cows.

 Click here to see more of the collection and read about how Judy's days as a preschool teacher inspired the prints.

You can find the Nite Owl and Cook's Helper fabrics, as well as more information about Judy, on her website.
