I have a few new fabric crushes. If you've been a long-time reader, this first one will come as no surprise: Sandy Klop's (aka American Jane) latest collection, Potluck for Moda Fabrics. (I have long-documented my Sandy Klop infatuation, borderline-fettish. She's one of my all-time fave's.)Peas and Carrots collection. And if you were part of the Pez craze, you will be happy to see the return of those too.
As well as those awesome ruler prints!
There are also some adorable new prints, such as those baby chicks! I'm thinking of making some colorful Dresden blocks to take with me on our end-of-summer road trip later this summer.
Potluck yardage will hit stores in October, but precuts will start appearing sooner. (Fresh Squeezed fabric has a few on hand.) You can also preorder Potluck precuts from Green Fairy Quilts.
One of my favorite collections that is available in stores is Baby Jane by Moda. I am SO smitten with this color palette right now (red, aqua, and mustard yellow) - they're some of the same colors of those vintage tea-cups I found recently.
The prints in this collection are retro-inspired and so, so cute. How I love those bias-stripes. Also some great low-volume prints. I'm currently sewing a baby quilt with these jelly-roll strips. I'll share the final outcome in the next few weeks. Baby Jane is available now from the Bloomerie, Fat Quarter Shop, Fabricworm, and Southern Fabrics.JAQS Fabrics looks coincidentally similar! I ordered a bunch of the red and gray bias stripes from Tasha Noel's Little Red Riding Hood collection for Riley Blake. Perfect for future bindings. Plus some Moda aqua stripes and a bit of yellow Seaside. (Such a good print and color.)
And finally, I even sat down to sew with a friend this weekend. I'm working on a Union Jack pattern, and she was my guinea pig. While I cracked the whip, I also caught up a little on my Virtual Quilting Bee blocks #9 and #11.
