Because we’re going to need somewhere to store all this pretty new fabric…
These are the “coming in November” Sew on the GO Suitcases. The nested set of 3 suitcases are made of heavy-duty cardboard and they’re really cute. (Like I need to clean out my sewing room to make space for a set or four “really cute.”)
I wrote that there would be more “eye candy” today because I couldn’t get to all the new pre-Market collections in one day. Okay, I probably could have but I wanted to savor each one. (Again.)
Their favorite “blender” prints. Your favorite “blender” prints!
Bonnie is much further ahead than Camille… she’s running a little bit behind.
Kaari Meng – the French General – has debuted Pondicherry – January 2017. Inspired by the colors and prints of an 18th Century French colony in India, the collection is classic French General with an exotic twist.
Cue Singing in the Rain!
This is Rufus in the Garden.
Those greens… they’re my favorite. And the blacks.
The collection does mix beautifully with others…
See what Rachel is up to at official_basicgrey.
The background is Moda’s Black Denim – 12050 14 (Yes, I have a plan.)
Poetry has prints and “wovens” – stripes, plaids, Dobby dots, a ruffled print, a coated cotton and a very cool tucked-fabric. Here are the quilting-weight stripes and plaids.
Like the “silky wovens” of recent years, these fabrics have a silky-soft feel to them. But unlike those old silky-wovens, these fabrics are closer in weight to regular quilting cotton. They wash up beautifully and would be lovely for garments. Or quilt backings. Or mixed with the prints.
Lissa – our own ModaLissa – is making a baby quilt and the mix of fabrics she selected is perfect.
That’s the ruffled cotton on the left, and the Dobby dots on the bottom of each row. (That piece with the gold “x”s on white… that’s from Modern Backgrounds Luster. It’s yummy. No. 1611 11M.)
This quilt mixes the prints and the wovens – it’s called Hello Sun.
And in another five weeks… more.
But we don’t need to think about that today. Okay, I do but hopefully, you get to sew. I’m working on project sheets, patterns and a few other things. And sewing. It’s supposed to rain this weekend so I might use that as a good reason to stay inside and do just that.
