I know, I've been quilting a lot more than I've been blogging. I am planning to offer the beautiful fabrics that Tula Pink and some other fabulous designers are creating, since there is a definite lack of brick and mortar stores in the area that offer them, but I do not have a storefront. Soon my fabrics will be available at etsy.com, through Peggy Anne's store. She will be offering the fabrics in bundles and kits. Mostly, though, I'll be selling the fabrics to my quilting customers for their backings and maybe for their next quilt projects.

So, here are some of the prints to look for in September. I'll also be stocking Tula Pink's solids that coordinate with this collection. Prints $12/yard, Solids $7/yard.

I'm also getting wide backs in the Mango and Guava color stories! They're the giant bananas on sateen:


Wide backs will be $21/yard. Remember, if you buy the backings from me, there is a substantial discount on your quilting service charge.

Three things I LOVE about Tula Pink:
1. Whimsy. This is what brought me back to quilting after decades away. It was her Flutterby line. Little slugs and snails, hidden catterpillars, etc...
2. Color! Not only is each colorway spectacular, each will coordinate with the prior few lines from her studio. More reason to hoard MORE.
3. Semi-solids: Everyone knows a modern quilter needs lots of solids and even more semi-solids. Check out how quiet the prints are if you want them to be, and how busy they are if you look closely. Hidden parrots, subtle frogs, and tiny tossed ladybugs are all part of her not-too-girly but always happy flavor. If you're looking for a little spooky darkness, you can always find some in there, too.

Let me know how excited you are about these prints!
