Fabric

I just got the most awesome package in the mail.  I’ve been busily sewing all weekend and just as I checked the post this morning – even MORE reasons to be excited.  My lovely Mum got me these fabrics for my birthday and I can’t get over how great they are.  Especially the new Carolyn Friedlander – Architextures.

I have loved ‘Field study’ by Anna Maria Horner for ages. And the Lizzy House ‘Pearl bracelets’ are perfect for everything, not to mention her new ‘Constellation’ series. Stars, moons and supernovas, awesome.

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.
