New stuff in the shop ....

Hi Everyone,

I can't believe I leave for Market in a week. I have been sewing for myself. I don't do that normally but since Sara from SewSweetness offered some lovely advance yardage of one of her prints from Jungle Avenue how could I resist.

But really... let's look at the pretty fabric pictures :)

Pretty Potent by Anna Maria Horner is here. I love it more than any of her other collections... LouLouthi has been knocked off it's top spot for me... The colors in this collection are so rich and honestly the printing is so perfect... they are just really well done... beautiful!


Denyse Schmidt's Modern Solids Boxes came yesterday they are gorgeous! We only have 4 left so get them while you can.


We also got this adorable children's collection called Dalmatian Rescue it is the latest collection from Northcott that benefits Quilts For Kids. I love to have part of the money we spend go to charity. This would make a super easy quilt just a panel (they are a yard by 44") and 1 1/4 yds of the border stripe, and 1/3rd yard of one of the prints for cornerstones. About six or eight seams and you have a nice size kids quilt... just saying...there are little medallions on the panel that say "Proud to be a Firefighter"



We also got in these amazing line drawings and blueprint fabrics from two collections by Windham called Fly Boy and Sail Away. They are line drawings of airplanes and helicopters and blueprints of ships. I decided to make some fun male centric bundles out of them... of course girls can like them too :)

This one I called Oh Man! It is charcoal, black, and white.


And this one I call For the Boys.  In blue and grey... the picture came out really blue for some reason that third fabric down is actually white with a grey blue propeller print.


So here is a sneak peek of what I have been sewing...

You might remember in one of my last posts I said I was making a skirt out of a print from NouvElle... well I decided to make a dress instead... I used Icy Mint Pure Elements as my muslin for the top I am making from Sara's fabric and decided to cut it up to make the top of this dress with the large floral from NouvElle as the skirt... here it is nearly done.

They match perfectly.

And ... here is Sara's fabric next to my sewing machine all washed and ready to go...hehe

Since I drafted the pattern and made the test muslin I feel like I am done even though I haven't started. That is going to be today. Should only take a few hours to make it.

And of course a shot of where I am now on the Aviatrix Medallion... slightly stalled with the clothes making taking up my time.


I hope you are having a productive week...

Talk soon!
