"The voice of the turtle is heard in the land"
Spring has arrived at Las Colchas in a beautiful way!! We are prepared for warmer weather with linen in cool colors as well as neutrals. These linens only become more beautiful after washing and can be transformed into the perfect Spring outfit to keep you comfortable as the world goes from cool to hot, especially in Texas! Toile patterned linens in pinks and greys have arrived from France. This group includes polka dots also in pink and grey. One can just imagine a classic ruffled pillow, or several on a bed to make you feel like you are in a foreign land........ perhaps Paris!
Our talented staff at the shop is busy turning the latest Moda and Echino and Kokka fabrics into unique designs in quilts, bags and wall hangings. As new books and threads and ribbons arrive the noise from wheels racing through their brains is deafining as they imagine all the ways they can be used! Then the buttons, stamps and beads get thrown into the mix and, well, you can just imagine!
When you make your way into San Antonio, and you must make your way here, come to Las Colchas and see the happiness here. You won't want to leave..........I promise you won't!

Pictured here is the first block of our Basket of Life BOM by Jo Ann Mulally. Each kit contains the pattern for the month, fabric, embroidery thread, and wool. The quilt finishes at 48 1/2" by 75 1/2" and consists of fourteen stitchery blocks (some months have two blocks) and finishing kit which includes the outside border. We only have a few kits left of this beautiful quilt which is sure to become a family heirloom. Call or come in to join this BOM and spend the fall and winter peacefully stitching these lovely blocks. Cost: $18.50/month.
