Oh yes how happy am I to receive a bundle of fabric in the post?
I was a lucky winner in the last quarter of the 2016 FAL with a credit to spend at Mariners Compass. I went to browse the shop to see what I might spend my winnings on and sadly discovered that the shop is closing; the good news for me was that there was a closing down sale which meant I picked up 5 yards of fabric and spent just $5 to cover the additional postage. Amanda still has some great bargains available; fabric, patterns and notions.
The first print that caught my eye was this Bonehead print by Michael Miller which I’ve already used in a project along with the Sketchbook Berry Woodblock by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery Fabrics:
I’m a fan of dark blue and this print has a gorgeous navy tone to it; it’s Les Fleurs Navy Rosa by Rifle Paper Company for Cotton and Steel and is truly lovely:
I’m not a big fan of Tula Pink but this is a really pretty purple and pink; Henna in Amethyst from her Eden line. Purple is a colour I don’t have much of in my stash and this is a great addition:
Lastly is a blue blender by Cori Dantini from her Little Red (referring to the Little Red Riding Hood story) collection for Blend, in my opinion it’s not possible to have too many blenders:
This collection is not an addition to my stash but it’s now on my wish list! It’s an inhouse collection just released by Robert Kaufman called Laurel Canyon and in my opinion so very delicious. It’s a bundle of flower power in retro colours, not all prints are to my liking but oh wow!
If you want to see some of these prints made up in to clothing take a look here. I’m hoping that a fabric shop in the UK will soon have these in stock but for now I’m checking out what’s been stashed over at Molli’s.
