There’s been some new fabrics arriving here recently (a lack of sewing time often leads to fabric purchases…). I know I already showed these great prints above, but hey, they’re awfully pretty and worth showing again, right? This line is called Squared Elements for Art Gallery. Such super basics, and a great bunch of colors.
The stack above is a fun new line, Hipster, by Shannon Lamden of Aunty Cookie fame for Riley Blake. Shannon was nice enough to send me a bit of each of the prints a while back and I’ve been looking forward to using them in a quilt.
This low volume polka dot bundle is from Riley Blake’s La Creme collection and was purchased from Westwood Acres, one of my newest sponsors. This great shop is run by Amanda and her husband. They are known for their fabulous fat quarter and fat eighth bundles – by the collection (I recently bought a bundle of Denyse Schmidt’s Florence) and they also put together some great custom bundles, like this In the Navy bundle I snagged recently since I find I’m lacking in navy fabrics. Amanda also frequently puts together low volume collections, which have been quite popular! (If you’re looking to grab one, you might consider following her on Instagram for advance notice of new bundles.) Their customer service is excellent and they offer quick shipping (and at only $5.85, regardless of how much you buy!). If you haven’t checked them out yet, be sure to do so!
And how’s about this new line? This one is Koi, by Rashida Coleman-Hale for Cloud 9, and one that I’ve been anxiously awaiting. I bought this fat quarter bundle here.
So what to do with my new fabrics? Why, put together a new fabric stack of course! I pulled this one together earlier this week while Hazel and Max slept (and I enjoyed a few minutes to myself!). I started with a few of Shannon’s Hipster prints – I’m in love with that cross stitchy one near the top – and gathered together lots of other prints and solids in those same colors (and you’ll note that many of my recent purchases came in handy!). I don’t know yet what this will become (or when I’ll have a chance to even start it), but it was certainly fun spending some time with my fabrics!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
