We're running a little later than usual today because I'm setting myself targets to finish things before I can do something else...so finish binding this quilt and you can do your blog post. That kind of thing. Like you do with small children (it works with me too!)
Just a little reminder that next weekend I'll be at Quilt Market so there's no what's new post, but if you want to see what's going on in the land of fabrics and stuff follow me on instagram (@ImAGingerMonkey) and I'll make sure I post lots of pics (probably all at once late at night when I get wifi in the hotel - so I'm apologising early for the possible market spamming!)
New in at Fat Quarter Shop is a line I am SO excited for, Frances Newcombe's Utopia. I have this right at the top of my neeeeeeed list. I can't wait to see this fabric in person.
Another one on my list of must haves is new in at Pink Castle Fabrics, Jeni Baker's Geometric Bliss.
I spotted this bundle of Madrona Road on sale at Sew Me A Song. I loved that line, it's a great one for stash building so if you don't have it - snap it up fast! Such a great stash building line. Great colours too.
I'm a sucker for those cross hatch prints in Architextures, and Cuts of Cotton have a heap of them. It's one of those prints that if you have it in your stash you feel safe and ready for any fabric emergency. The white on white = perfection.
Contemporary Cloth are closing down and still have plenty of great bargains through the store. Use the code Save30% on checkout for 30% saving on everything.
Find some great out of print stuff like this Greenfield Hill from Denyse Schmidt voile (infinity scarf anyone?)...
Cotton + Steel just arrived at Bobbie Lou's. I know you probably already stocked up, but if you're like me you have re-stocked at least once. And if there's a print you're missing or wanting more off, head over there. As always, her prices are great. Just $11 for the regular cottons and $11.48 for the metallics (per yard). That is cheap, people! Plus......GALLOPING HORSES! Everyone needs more of these.
Skipping across to the UK now and at the village haberdashery these Robert Kaufman flannels are in stock. These are double sided - cosy on both sides and great for clothing as well as anything else you can think of for using soft flannel. I think a nice winter quilt backed in these would be amazing.
I am loving these prints from Plush Addict. It's origami oasis from Michael Miller. Gorgeous colours and animal graphics that aren't all cutesie.
These scandi Christmas prints from elephant in my handbag are just gorgeous. So subtle and pretty, so not the usual Christmassy fabric.
Newly arrived at Fabric HQ is Emily Herrick's gorgeous deer print. I love this print. It would be amazing as a quilt back, a dress, a bag, in quilts, everything actually.
I'm also loving this type print at Backstitch by Minick and Simpson for Moda. That's a blue print on cream. I like it for that fact alone, it's gentle and not so harsh than a black on white text print.
Last but not least this week is Simply Solids, who have had a delivery of peppered cottons to add to their collection of linens and shot cottons. These are gorgeous, so shimmery and so soft
And that is all from me! I'll see you for more updates on what's going on in the land of fabric when I'm back from market! Back to the sewing room and more prep prep prep!
