    Goodness! Doesn’t it just seem like there is always so much beautiful fabric available and we just can’t create quickly enough to use it all? I have been feeling that way lately (maybe that’s why I have suddenly started making small quilts). The new fabric collection, Wonderful Things, designed by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery Fabrics, […]

    Have you seen the new Garden Dreamer fabrics by Maureen Cracknell (Art Gallery Fabrics)? I am loving the jewel tone colors and basic prints in this one. Just plain beautiful. The collection is pretty well rounded with a set of darker prints in fuchsia, teal and indigo, plus a bit of mustard. Then there is […]

These are my kind of fabrics: basic prints, a few with text, lots of clear colors and geometric designs. The scale of the prints is ideal […]

    When I saw the Lagom fabric collection at Spring Quilt Market in May, I instantly loved the minimal prints and colors! Lagom is a Swedish word meaning, “just the right amount”. That pretty much sums up the perfect fabrics! Lagom is the latest collection from the designers at Art Gallery Fabrics…a perfect combination of black […]

    Some fabrics just grab you. I subscribe to the Uppercase magazine, so I saw early last spring that Janine Vangool had designed a fabric collection for Windham. This news made me very excited! The colors and prints are so fresh and basic, I knew from the pictures that I would want this collection. It does […]

    One of my all time favorite quilting fabric collections is “For You” by designer Brigitte Heitland (Zen Chic) for Moda. These fabrics came out last summer, and I was lucky enough to get a layer cake (10″ square precuts) of them right away, which I made a quilt with…I can’t wait to show you that […]

    When I first saw the sneak peeks of the Curiosities fabric collection from Art Gallery Fabrics last spring, I knew I would love it. Then, at quilt market in Minneapolis in May, I got to see it in person…Jeni Baker has arguably produced her best fabric collection yet (isn’t she one of those that just gets […]

    It probably comes as no surprise that I have a new favorite fabric range about every other week, and it is also not a big surprise that I am totally in love with the new True Colors fabrics by Tula Pink. Just look at them.  Color Girl, indeed. There are more prints to the range, […]

    Earlier this spring, when Art Gallery Fabrics started previewing their new collections for Market in Minneapolis, I knew immediately that I wanted to make a quilt with “Happy Home” by Caroline Hulse (SewCaroline). The colors and prints in this collection are so fresh and bright, and I like the whimsical and hand-drawn look of them: […]
