 What a fun winter...haha..  Hope at least you have been able to have extra sewing days, I know we have.  
 New collections in are Quilting Treasures Winter Birds.  It is a neat bird fabric with mourning doves, chickadees, cardinals, nuthatches, and bluejays done in very nice colors  and to correct  scale!   We have done up Pieced Tree's Cuddle 3 quilt pattern in a 64" square lap. 
 Kaufman's Kalahari African animals is here waiting for someone to come up with the perfect pattern.   They are batiks. Elizabeth Studio's new woodland animals Woos Tree is here also waiting for the perfect pattern.   Fields of Gold by Maywood is a neat country feel with pretty coordinates.   It is a panel with soft colors.   We got Radiant from Blank in the blue color way.  We did find the perfect pattern, Beyond Horizons, made especially for this fabric.   It is a neat modern quilt, 51 x 72.  
More wide backs have come in.   On order are four new batik backs, hopefully they will be here for spring shop hop, April 10-12.   Charm packs from  Primitive Gathering, Homestead Gatherings are.here, also in the candys.   There are some new patterns   just for them.  We have gotten the Blanks 2.5 " stripes in bright colors, they look perfect for baby or graduation quilts.
