Fabric love

Once you start buying fabric it’s a slippery slope. These days there are tons of fabric lines being released regularly and every time a new one comes out, I must have it. There are are lots of designers I love and often if you don’t buy the material when it comes out, you miss out. And it’s rarely reprinted. And then you have to start the obsessive hunt on etsy for ‘oop’s’ (out of print) that you loved but couldn’t quite afford at the time! Ha oh first world problems. Anyhow, I thought I would share some of my favorites of the moment.

Leah Duncan’s new line for Art Gallery Fabrics is called Meadow.

I loved Carolyn Friedlanders Architextures and her new line, Botanics is also a fav.

Ellen Luckett Baker is also awesome. Her new line is called Garden and even though I don’t love butterflies, I adore this collection.

I spend hours shopping online and tweaking my cart, I don’t buy tons, but I do have hundreds of wish purchases just waiting there. I just need to get rich and buy a house with a bedroom just for fabric. Don’t even get me started on the 2014 Liberty of London spring releases…

New fabric

Yay – nothing like getting packages in the mail.  After shopping around Montreal I realised just how much better it is to shop online.  For fabric at least (and I know it’s the same for lots of other things).  I prefer to go to the store and browse and touch etc, but at almost half the price, I browsed on etsy instead.  I love etsy, it’s good for so many things, especially as Christmas comes closer.

Here’s a sneak peak at my new material.  Coming up tomorrow – the first of my quilt blocks.  We’re meant to do 2 a week, but so far I’ve done 9 in a week, which is probably good because most people in the quilt along are a year ahead!  Although – it shows what a newbie I am – I already made the same square twice.  Duh.  Out of about 100 designs you’d think my random choices would be more random.  Now I know I have to mark off the ones I’ve already made…  Ha.

Yesss finally some Ellen Luckett Baker of my own.  As well as some Grey Dash Stripe from Aneela Hoey, some Woodland yellow Circles by Natalie Lyner and Pick Me, yellow floral from General Fabrics Company.

I saved the best for last. I loooove these fabrics.  Especially Anthology’s Raining Rainbows – Raindrops, possibly my all-time favorite fabric I’ve ever bought (big call I know) and also the gorgeous blue of Josephine Kimberling’s Hope Chest.
