We’ve got some new fabrics over here! These new prints from Dear Stella’s Woodwinked collection of quilting cottons are getting me excited for the changing of seasons. Though, not having to mow the lawn quite as often *might* have this fabric beat in terms of getting me excited for Fall. And, no, let’s not talk about raking leaves just yet. . .
I love the unexpected color combinations of rusty red, pewter, and citron in these whimsical forest prints. Okay, maybe the hearts aren’t screaming “forest,” but they coordinate with the designs on those sweet owls so they’re allowed in my book. Right now, I’m daydreaming of sewing up a new table runner or some placemats with these fabrics.What do you think?
If you’re a fan of Heather Ross, Heather Ross, you’ll be happy to learn that we have a handful of fat quarter bundles from her Far Far Away collection for Windham Fabrics. Heather takes inspiration from “tiny princesses everywhere who stay up past their bedtimes, love unicorns and anything pink, and send all their important royal messages and decrees by snail mail.” Has anyone read her book?
Originally Far Far Away was released in 2008 as a line of highly collectible decor fabrics. Now, for the first time, these prints are available in quilting weight fabrics. You can view the full collection here.
Also from Dear Stella is this fun alphabet print from their Wild collection, perfect for sewing things for (or with?) your little one. Ezra sure loves him a bold print so I’ll have to brainstorm what I might stitch up for him with this fabric. He’s approaching 5 months (already!!!) which means if he’s not nearly gagging himself with his whole hold hand in his mouth, he’s nibbling on this, my finger, his clothes, my clothes or his toes.
I’m thinking he might enjoy having a few of tag blankets around. But, I’ll admit, those cute little piggies look very very tempting. . .
All of these fabrics (and more!) are available for purchase at Home Made! If you don’t live nearby, just call 609.536.2940 and we’ll put together a mail order for you.
