Sew On The Go…

Because we’re going to need somewhere to store all this pretty new fabric…

ct-sew-on-the-go

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.)

So let’s get to it… Bonnie & Camille Basics by Bonnie & Camille.  Basics – January 2017.

Their favorite “blender” prints.  Your favorite “blender” prints!

ct-bonnie-basics

These are Bonnie’s new patterns – O Happy Day, Wish Upon A Star, Confetti, and Bobbin BoxBonniecottonway is sharing her quilts.

Bonnie is much further ahead than Camille… she’s running a little bit behind.

ct-thimbleblossoms-basics

Okay, so I just really liked this picture.  Miss thimbleblossoms has finished Little Star, Colorway, Silver Lining and Little Star Mini.

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.

ct-pondicherry-aurivil-68x79

This is Aurivil.  The other new quilts are Pondicherry, Alfassa and Frangipani.

Cue Singing in the Rain!

Rainy Day by Barb & Mary – aka Me & My Sister Designsmeandmysisterdesigns.

ct-mms-rainy-day

Umbrella Plaids, Go Fish and Raindrops are the adorable quilts for Rainy Day – January 2017.

This is Rufus in the Garden.

ct-rufus-in-the-garden-coral

This is by Jan Patek – it’s made with her beautiful new Coral Bells collection – January 2017.  Jan_Patek_Quilts is giving sneak peeks of her applique and other quilts as Market approaches.

Those greens… they’re my favorite.  And the blacks.

Jo Morton has Reflections – January 2017.

ct-reflections

I don’t know if joquilts has used any Reflections in her Scrappy Pyramid blocks but she’s been mixing some Gratitude into many of them.

The collection does mix beautifully with others…

ct-comfort-zone

This is Comfort Zone – it mixes Coral Bells and Reflections.

Compositions! Rachel Benchley of Basic Grey has created a terrific neutral collection that is eclectic, sophisticated and a bit musical.  Compositions is in shops in January 2017.

See what Rachel is up to at official_basicgrey.

Studio M is back with Mixed Bag 2017 – February 2017.

ct-mixed-bag

The background is Moda’s Black Denim – 12050 14 (Yes, I have a plan.)

Pat Sloan‘s Sunday Drive is bright, happy and a whole lot of fun.  Kind of like Pat herself.

ct-red-door-lane

Sunday Drive – February 2017.  This is Red Door Lane – the print version.  quilterpatsloan can tell you all about it and show you her batiks.

And finally, a little bit of Poetry – February 2017.  3 Sisters.  (They don’t care for Instagram so there isn’t a link.)

ct-poetry-prints

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.

ct-poetry-wovens

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.

ct-lissa-poetry-mix

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.

ct-poetry-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.

Happy Friday!

  5. Linda Drury says:

    Wow they are all beautiful, so hard to choose my favorite, I will be watching for them in the shops.

  6. Michele Breault says:

    All very nice, but I’ve noticed that Moda lines rarely include any purple. I don’t see any this time, not even in the Me and My Sister line.

  7. Lee Ann L. says:

    Those suitcases are too darn cute! I hope I find them in the shop!

  8. Wow, these are all beautiful fabrics.

  9. Lynne Tilley says:

    Poetry is absolutely fabulous. There suitcases are a have to have too. Oh who am I kidding. I love it all.

  11. Mary says:

    Wow! I’m so glad I don’t have to pick a favorite. Every single line is gorgeous!

  12. Kristi says:

    I agree with Michele Breault’s previous comment: where is the purple? Otherwise, the fabrics are beautiful.

  13. Jocelyn says:

    Llve these beautiful fabric colors!

  14. Hildy says:

    No suprise here my favorite is B&C basics;-) Don’t have a second best yet because there are no pictures of the new Fig Tree collection, no Sherri & Chelsi, no Lelleboutique and no BunnyHill (and I’m pretty sure they all have a new one … at least I hope).

  15. findfabrics says:

    Lovely suitcases but not big enough for all these beautiful fabrics 🙂

  16. Marianne says:

    I love everything!

  17. Cynthia Scharf says:

    Hooray for plaids! I have a quilt that I want to make for which plaids would be perfect. It’s so hard to find thwem right now.

  18. Sue J. says:

    I see my name on a couple of those collections! Hard to choose, they are all beautiful.

  19. Teresa C says:

    Love the new collections, especially Poetry. (Maybe I am their secret fourth sister!)

  20. Marij says:

    Love the suitcases, pity they were made in China.

  21. Jeanne says:

    This is SO SO off topic, but did you MAKE the Moda Lissa’s birthday cake…I’m not a cake eater, but my goodness that looks like it could change my mind. 😉

    • Carrie Nelson says:

      Hi Jeanne – LOL No! I was going to bake a cake but ran out of time. More importantly, my culinary skills do not extend to the Chocolate Eruption cake – flourless chocolate cake base, chocolate mousse filling, chocolate ganache topping with caramel and chocolate bits. It was very good and very rich. I got it at Eatzi’s. 🙂

    poetry….sigh:)
