Fabric Talk – Keeping Up

Anyone get any new fabrics lately?

I have been stocking up on the fabulous Innocent Crush collections.

I love that you can get different colors of the same print in different fabrics, from the cotton to the voile to the home dec collections.

I love buying scrap bags because you get a little taste of a nice variety!

I jumped at a chance to get an early-release Sherbet Pips jelly roll from Randi’s shop. These are THE sweetest prints ever! I haven’t decided what to make with these fun fabrics, so I might wait until charm squares (packs of 5-inch squares) or layer cakes (packs of 10-inch squares) are available and to make a quilt.

Speaking of sweet prints, I did a little trade with Dana over the Christmas holiday. She sent me some Heather Ross charm squares and I shared with her a couple of my treasured Bohemian prints. Not sure yet what to make with these squares, but they scream to be fussy cut so you can appreciate the sketches.

Next up, I thought it would be fun to buy a couple Flea Market Fancy scraps, since I never bought any of that infamous collection. They are so cheerful to look at. I would love to make a wallet or a notebook cover with this small collection.

Here are some new collections I have on my shopping list:

Greenfield Hill fabrics by Denyse Schmidt. I love this collection because it’s dark and it’s light, it’s more geometric than I’ve seen lately, it’s less wallpaper looking that what I’ve seen lately, and it feels modern and original.

Central Park fabrics by Kate Spain. I have seen so many of the images that inspired her, and I love the fresh colors she used in that collection.

Bonjour fabrics by Diane Kappa. I love that Bright Buds print in Chocolate. Each colorway has a nice variety of color.

Bryant Park by Khristian Howell has some cool prints coming out in February. I especially love that Chelsea Blooms print, with the transparent graphic flowers. I also love her Byrant Glass designs. I’ve been to the real Bryant Park a few times, so I love imagining her sitting there sketching and dreaming.

There are always so many new fabrics to keep up with and catch up on, aren’t there? Plus, there are all those beloved fabrics in my stash to continue to love and use. What’s on your shopping list?

  1. You must be so happy with all those scraps! I have Soul Blossoms on my list. And I’m doing a quilt-along with Central Park. Interestingly Greenfield Hill is so NOT on my list. Now I’m off to check out the other fabrics you mentioned. Happy Monday, Terri!

  2. Excuse me while I pick my jaw up off of the floor! WHAT?! YOU HAVE PIPS?? I just adore them! I have to admit I have an affinity for the scrap bundles too. I’m still hoarding Flea Market Fancy, Heather Ross and quite a few AMH prints, I just can’t cut into them! WONDERFUL post-BEAU-tiful fabric! YUM!!

  3. Hello Terri! Seriously…now I envy you…I’ll go to look again all those, your ‘too’ wonderful fabrics!

  4. No new fabrics here. Just trying to use up what I already have and then want to give away what I decide I don’t think I’ll use. I have to admit that Sherbert Pips does call out to me, though!

  5. I can’t wait to get my hands on Sherbet Pips. It speaks my name. I haven’t purchased any new fabrics lately, but I am eyeing some voiles at my local shop. I’m going to try my hand at some garment sewing.

    Take care,

  6. Oh my terri, these collection of fabrics are gorgeous! I have been shopping for fabrics lately…as a little treat to me on my birthday! Wishing you a lovely merry happy week and love to you sweet friend!
