I’ve had some fun mail arrive recently – fun fabric-y mail, which is always my favorite kind!
Up first is a selection of prints I ordered from Umbrella Prints – these are from their new line, Floating World, and I must say I’m in love. I’ve had a thing for peach recently, so that peach print is a perfect addition to the stash. And that green one on top? Perfect. I will definitely be ordering more! (oh, I shouldn’t have looked at their site again – I already spy a few more things I’d like…)
And then there was this – an absolutely beautiful bundle of Alissa Haight Carlton’s new Modern Solids. What a perfect selection of colors, with great depth and richness. They’re crossweaves, which gives them that extra depth. I can’t wait to see how they’ll look in a quilt! (They’ll be available next month I think…)
Some recent stash additions – a few new prints from Joel Dewberry’s and Anna Maria Horner’s True Color lines, and then a bit of a restock on some of my other favorites. I’m often asked how much of each fabric I buy, and of course it really depends. I do find that these days I tend to like to buy fat quarters of prints I like from new lines – mainly to see how they work with my stash. If I find I reach for them often, then I’ll rebuy a half yard. Most of the prints in this stack are half yard cuts (aside from the few on top, which are fat quarters).
(my little helper – snapping a few pretend photos of his own!)
I can try and make these piles look pretty, but in reality, this is the true state of my sewing table, so it looks like I’ll be spending some time cleaning things up before I get to the fun of making anything new!
Oh, and speaking of new, here’s my latest all taped (rather messily!) to the wall behind my sewing table. Better get sewing!
