Another very fun surprise was this bundle of fat quarters from Monaluna’s newest upcoming collection, Fox Hollow. Oh my, words can not describe how much I love this collection. The drawings are so sweet and beautiful without being ‘cutesy’. Same with the color palette.
There’s an adorable squares ‘cheater’ print – you could just get that and quilt it up and have a ready to go baby gift. I also love this woodland alphabet. Oh my heavens. Adorable.
Coincidentally, I ordered some Moda crossweaves from Pink Castle Fabrics and they arrived as well. They are SO soft (and they are still on sale!) I bought red and white, apple, and aqua. (I think the red and white is all gone.) They have a subtle texture and are a nice alternative to other solids.
Look how perfectly they play together with the Fox Hollow. Hmmm… I feel a project coming on. Fox Hollow should be available at retailers later this summer.
And finally, we have survived – and even enjoyed – our first official week of summer vacation with a little bit of help from 79 cent dipped ice cream cones at the grocery store, tennis lessons that actually wear out my normally indefatigable 8-yr-old, and a new Slip ‘n’ Slide. I even snuck in some sewing time during So You Think You Can Dance. So far so good.
