Fabric!!

I did a little fabric shopping a week ago at a fun little quilt shop and I am going to share my random findings with you.  I just purchased some of what I fell in love with.  I definitely have to refrain myself because I fall in love with a lot of fabrics.

I have been drooling over these Texas napkins by Moda (20" x 20") for several visits and decided to stop drooling and make a purchase.  They are adorable and I will probably use them to make two quilted pillows.  I don't really have a place where they would fit in my home, but I don't care.  I will make them fit!


In continuation with the Texas theme, I found a fat quarter of these cute horseshoes.  I grew up around horses and couldn't resist.  This fabric is Rawhide Horseshoes by Moda.


I also purchased a half of a yard of Tim and Beck Bungle Jungle Elephants in Grey.  I love these elephants and I especially fell in love with the grey and red.  As you can see from the collection below, there are a total of 6 different color variations of the elephant fabric.  It was hard not to buy all 6.


I could not resist purchasing some of the fabrics from Aneela Hoey's Sew Stitchy collection.  I have been really interested in fabrics with birds on them lately.  I have made a couple of fabric purchases since this one and they contain quite a few bird fabrics.  I decided I will have to create a post just about the little birds I have been collecting.

With Christmas coming, I could not resist the red fabric with the birds.  It isn't Christmas fabric, but it would work well in a Christmas project.  I love the sewing pins and the fun hexagons.  The grey in the background is very soft and pretty and works well with the pinks and reds.  Oooh I just love it all!



Here is a collage of all the fabrics in the Sew Stitchy collection.  Aren't they just adorable!


I am sure I have said this before, but I absolutely love Aneela Hoey's fabric collections.  Her other collections are A Walk in the Woods, Little Apples, Sherbet Pips, and her latest Christmas collection, Cherry Christmas. She also has a great blog if you are interested in following her talented works.  Her blog name is comfortstitching and you can find it here: http://comfortstitching.typepad.co.uk.

Have a great day and happy sewing, or maybe I should say happy fabric shopping!

Cheers!
Candace

  2. Up here in the NW we had the moda napkins with the Oregon/Washington map on them. I bought several and made pillows for the deck with them! They are so great. They acted as an accent to the other pillows!

  5. may I ask the name of the shop where you got the TX napkin? Etsy came up empty for me, and the only place I found them online only sold in a set of 6. My best friend lives in TX and this would make a great pillow for her living room for Christmas.
