We have been having some gorgeous Spring weather here, which is awesome for spending time outside, but not as awesome for getting much sewing done. Lately it seems I spend more time thinking about all the things I want to/need to sew, rather than actually getting any of them done. That hasn’t stopped me from picking up a few new fabrics though…

I have a great love for unique hand printed fabrics, and these from Leslie Keating of Maze & Vale have been on my list of favorites for some time. These are printed in Australia (as are many of my other favorite hand printed fabrics!), which means higher shipping costs to get them to my door, but as it turns out, well worth it!

The basecloth used for these cotton prints is so soft and lovely, and the colors used for these prints are absolutely beautiful. I couldn’t pick a favorite, so several found their way into my cart… like the little leaves (litterfall) in gray, the xox in red, and stormy weather in a muted bluish green.

Or how about verses in mustard or gathering in charcoal? Even now I’m unable to pick a favorite, but I’m excited to add them to a quilt sometime down the road. I do hope that will be someday soon, but it seems my next order of business is selecting a paint color for the nursery (and then a name for the little one soon to be inhabiting that room!)…

I’d also like to welcome a new addition to my sponsors, CustomLabels4U.com. Beth has you covered for all your label needs – satin labels, fabric labels, even woven labels! The timing is good too, as I’m down to the last few labels I’ve been using to label my quilts. I’m excited at the possibility of getting some woven labels this time around (I’ve looked around in the past and have been discouraged by the price and the minimum order size – happily these labels have a much better price tag, and don’t require you to buy 600!). I will certainly let you know how they are when I get some!

    Beautiful fabrics! I’m anxious to see what you do with them. Hasn’t the weather been gorgeous! Here in Ohio it’s been up in the high 70′s and all I need to do is find a way to move my sewing room out there!:)

    Those fabrics look so yummy – I esp love the rainclouds (well, we live in Oregon, so!). On another note, I recently ordered some labels from CustomLabels and they are awesome. Yay!

    That fabric is absolutely lovely, it really is. Shame Australia is so far away. I remember trying to get some amazing Ink and Spindle fabric from there as well. Almost makes me consider emigrating.
