Michael Miller has some new fabric out. This one is called "Village Stroll". I got a half yard because I love houses so much and this one has so much color and personality.
These two very basic check/stripes are new Michael Miller's. I am always interested in picking up a good check and a good stripe. They are extremely versatile and are "must haves" in any fabric collection.
Here are 3 tiny cuts of Japanese fabrics, not new. I really like hexagon fabric and the pink and green florals are again, basics, that are valuable in a fabric collection even if it is in such a small quantity.
I like fabric with lots of different things going on in it. This one is a cotton/linen blend heavyweight great for purses or table toppers. While I'm talking Japanese Fabric I have to tell you one of my nicest suppliers is Lisa from Etsy. Her shop is ThisandthatfromJapan. Her service is fabulous and she's a sweetheart. Lisa also sells books. So if you have a Japanese book you want to purchase you can contact her through her etsy store and she might be able to get it for you.I really love this black with apple print. It is also in a half yard cut. I wish I had more of this one. It is a thicker quilt weight. I can think of lots of fun uses for it. Japanese import, of course.I know lots of you don't really get Sunbonnet Sue but this slightly Holly Hobbie version speaks to me. First off it has a lot going on and second of all I find the faceless figure charming somehow. I just like her, for some reason.
These are vintage finds from my sister, Michelle. The one on the left is an orange strawberry in a cotton or blend from probably the late 60s or after. Orange and strawberries - what's not to love? And the other is a vintage sheet. I'm slowly working on my vintage sheet quilt (haven't blogged about it, I'm not ready to show it off quite yet). This comes in handy because I need more sheets before I move forward on the project. I love the soft feel to the vintage sheets. They are "broken in" and feel loved.
Today my quilter, Wren, dropped this quilt off at my house. it is my latest creation and so I'll be hard at work on the pattern for the next couple weeks, along with finishing up some other things. Although writing the pattern isn't my very favorite part about creating a quilt, I don't mind doing it and it adds closure to a project. And I am very happy with this one. It turned out really very sweet.
