Tilda fabrics Bird Pond fabrics sold by Color Girl Quilts

Hey everyone! it’s great to be back from summer vacation. Big thanks for your patience while waiting for me to return to ship your orders.

I am super excited for this fall…so many fun things are coming to Color Girl and I want to share them all with you. First up, I am doing a couple of pre-orders for collections I think are going to be super popular and I am personally anxiously waiting to sew with. So let’s see what’s new on our fall sewing agenda!

Tilda Fabrics’ fall release, Bird Pond, is set to arrive September 1. I have been crushing on these fabrics since I first caught a glimpse of them on social media during Quilt Market last May. Tilda has never disappointed, but I think Bird Pond is my favorite of all so far. Small scale prints and clear colors make these fabrics perfect for patchwork: even when cut into pieces, you don’t lose site of the pretty prints or the detail of your piecing.

Bird Pond is coming to Color Girl in color way bundles. Each bundle includes 20 different fabrics, each piece 10 1/2″ x 21″. Since Tilda Fabrics come to us from Europe, they cut on the metric system. This means that what they call “fat eights” are large enough for 10″ square or 2 1/2″ strip pre-cut projects. So useful! Choose Warm or Cool colors bundles. Each pre-order includes a free pattern of your choice from my shop, too. Make sure you put the fabric and the pattern in your cart, use coupon “preorder” to take the $9 pattern price off.

These sweet prints are sure to be a hit, so don’t miss out on your chance to reserve a bundle and be the first to get one when they arrive.

If you are less of a sweet girly girl and more of a bold Quilt-The-Rainbow type, you’ll love Alison Glass’ upcoming collection, Road Trip. If you’ve been reading here long, you know I am a huge fan of Alison’s. Here colors are so bold and saturated in perfect off-beat shades. She has great skill at mixing basics like tone-on-tone prints and more detailed, illustrated prints. This balance makes her fabrics so useful alone or in scrappy mixes with other designers.

Road Trip is expected around October 1. I’m getting a limited number of fat quarter bundles of the full collection, so order quickly. As above, use coupon “preorder” to choose a free pattern with your order. You’ll be the first to get yours…I’ll ship pre-orders as soon as they arrive.

What new fabrics or patterns are you excited to get sewing with? I’d love to know what you have planned for sewing in September. Please like/follow the Color Girl Facebook page and join the conversation. Just writing about these new ones makes me even more anxious for them to arrive!

Happy sewing,

Sharon McConnell, Color Girl Quilts
