Sometimes it is just for me...

Hi Everyone!

Most of the time, when I meet with sales reps, I try to pick fabric that I think you all will love. Of course, it is my business to bring you things you love and want. Sometimes I am not sure what you will go for so I miss the mark. Sometimes I buy something because it speaks to my soul even if I am not sure how you will receive it. There is a fabric collection coming this week from Westminster that is one that spoke to my soul. I have been anticipating this line for months and I am so excited. Have you ever heard of Dan Bennett? He is an artist. This is his third fabric collection. It is called Cosmos:

 ** Edit
They aren't Fish eyes! Honest it is just that picture they they used when you see it in real life it just looks more like a paint splatter... will definitely not use that picture to sell the fabric with LOL
This is Azure

This is Vermillion
 These tiny pictures don't do it justice... the border print (second one down on the left in each picture) is really cool. Well, you know that the Azure colorway is my fave but I am sure that the Vermillion is Sally's fave :) Did you know that I take Sally with me to appointments at Quilt Market to help me pick warm toned fabrics since they aren't my thing? It is good to have friends.

Sometimes I have to take a chance. Last year it was Pernilla's Journey which did really well, thankfully. Well I hope you all can see the potential in this one too. I can't wait to get IRL pictures so you can see how cool these are.

The Outfoxed bracelet prints are back if you missed out the first time. My fave is this one:



Talk soon!

I love the azure colorway. It is just so peaceful to look at :)

java diva said...

The azure is breathtaking! But those one-eyed fish heads kind of creep me out.

~The Bargain Babe from *Zucchini Summer Blog* said...

Yep, Azure is my favorite too.

Although I'd probably skip out on the fish heads. lol. Maybe they are peacock feathers?

Anita said...

I was thinking, how beautiful...but then that one fabric looked like bulging fish eyes to me! LOL...the rest is beautiful though. =)

WandaFish said...
