Basic of the Month April 2013: Stonehenge

It’s time again for a new Basic of the Month! We are so excited about our April 2013 Basic of the Month, Stonehenge by Linda Ludovico and Deborah Edwards for Northcott Fabrics! And don’t forget, the Basic of the Month is 20% off all month!

At first I thought Stonehenge was just a crazy silly idea, but I have come around to loving them! Stonehenge is a wonderful group of blenders that act much like batiks in a quilt. There is such a variegated range of shades to select, from smoky darks to misty pastels to summer brights. The stone textures also add to the variety, including but not limited to vivid streaks, rainbow speckles and dazzling metallics. Case in point, two of our newest patterns (Candy Ribbons and Wagon Wheel) feature two opposite but breathtaking color palettes.

I know there are a million Stonehenge prints to hunt through, but we have them sorted easily now in different categories. Northcott keeps surprising us with new and amazing colors and groups, and itโ€™s become a group we always look forward to seeing at our sales appointments.

If you need an idea for patterns to use with Stonehenge, we have plenty!


  1. Love, love, LOVE Stonehendge! Thank you so much for having this on sale this month!

  2. Stonehendge has become my all time favorite for backings. Lots of eye texture but doesn't take away from the front of a quilt. Works well, as a blender, when I don't want another pattern to take away from the main theme of A quilt.

  3. For your contest I would love to use "Love & Liberty by Robyn Pandolph for RJR Fabrics" for the pillow case contest project. What a gorgeous line!

  4. I have to agree with you on Stonehenge. When I first saw it I didn't care for it at all; now, it's part of my fabric stash. Love it! Wouldn't it be nice to include in the Perfect Travel Size Pillow cases everyone is going to make?

  5. Love the pillowcase…it is the perfect size. After getting together with some of my quilty friends yesterday, I saw the Robyn Pandolf's Love and Liberty jelly roll. YUM ! I will have to buy one soon and make my mom something, it is beautiful.

  6. I love, love stonehenge Woodland Trees quilt. When trying to order today I didn't receive the 20% off or free shipping? How my I complete my order and receive these discounts??? pattyyo
