Quill is a collection based on friendship and generosity, inspired by distinct personalities on a journey to embrace their lives with gratitude and clarity. Quill features five designs that represent those personality traits. With prints available in quilting cotton, linen and knit, the collection was designed for use in both quilting and apparel sewing.

Knowing the importance of basics and blenders for quilters, Valori designed Blueprint Basics to create a color library that will expand each season with a new palette of 13 prints and Kona® Cotton Solids. Be sure to join us each Thursday as Valori announces her Color of the Week, beginning April 10.
