Happy Fabric Friday! I have a few pieces of "fabric inspiration" to share today--and then I have some informational links at the end of the post. So here goes! First is this lovely bundle of Avalon by Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree and Company. I've made a few projects for Joanna using these fabrics, and I can't wait to sew something for my home using this collection!
Next up is this beautiful fabric by Heather Mulder Peterson. Nanette has been using it for her background for Lori's row along. I have loved seeing this fabric in every row and finally had to order a yard for my stash--problem is, now that it's here I don't want to use it for fear I won't be able to find any more!
Some of my favorite Amy Butler prints are in this stash; I was running low on all of these pieces, so I ordered a little of each to have "just in case."
And here are three of my favorite Joel Dewberry prints out now...the plaids and large floral just say "spring to me!"
Also, a few Summersville pieces by Lucie Summers for Moda--I thought I might need a little more variety of low volume prints for the cross border of my Marcelle Medallion.
And...above are some "low volume" prints I've been using lately. I have a post today about low volume and text prints over at the Moda Cutting Table blog!
I've also written a couple of posts recently for the Craftsy blog...one post is on choosing fabrics, and the other post is about using prairie points in your quilts. I'd love to have you stop by and say hi over at the Craftsy blog!
Finally, I want to let you know about the following e-mail I received this week which offers quilters free access to some amazing on-line quilting programming from The Quilt Show:
International Quilting Day is just around the corner on Saturday, March 16, and Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims, hosts of The Quilt Show, want quilters, sewers and crafters to help us celebrate International Quilting Day by seeing what's going on in today's quilting world. They are opening up free access to over 140 of their shows from their www.thequiltshow.com website beginning Friday, March 15, through Sunday, March 17, and there will be terrific prizes from companies we know and love like Bernina, GAmmill, Superior Threads, AccuQuilt, C&T Publishing, RJR Fabric. Ricky and Alex will have gift baskets to give away too. The grand prize is a new BErnina 550QE sewing machine!
