Friday Fabric

Happy Friday! I have been meaning to do a post on all the new fabulous fabrics I’ve gotten recently. Here it is! I posted this photo already on Facebook. The dot fabrics below are all from TJs Fabric (Opp, AL). Most of these are Michael Miller “Kiss Dots” and I think the brown and red are “Dumb Dots”. If you go to TJ’s website and click on Online Store, then Newest Editions, you’ll find most of these. I LOVE any and all polka dot fabrics and use them in almost all of my designs, especially the girly ones! I used the hot pink in our latest Owl 5 (MUST SEE) design listed this morning. 

These are Robert Kaufman fabrics. LOVE LOVE LOVE the Chevrons which are SO popular right now! Top row 4th over Chevron is the one I used last year in our Turkey 4 design! Again, all from TJs and these can be found under Newest Additions as well!

More Robert Kaufman (Jingle Holly). Top left dot is Michael Miller (Santa Play Dot) which has been very popular over the past couple of years!

 These top swirly fabrics are Riley Blake ~ great for fall! Bottom middle dots are Moda as well as the right plaid. Bottom left dot is Riley Blake ~ super cute colors! Again, all TJs and all should be listed under Newest Editions!

 CHEVRONS!!!!!!!!!! They are THE hot fabric right now! Hot pink and green I’ve had for a while (I think I got them at InTown Quilters in Decatur, GA) and are Michael Miller. The Brown, aqua, yellow are all Riley Blake. You can find Chevrons at both TJs Fabric and Whimsical Designs. You can get 5% off at Whimsical Designs with my special code: ACe6ecea7394 through September 30th! The discount can be stacked on other sales too!

 These Chevrons are smaller than the above ~ all Riley Blake! I don’t know if we can all thank Isaac Mizrahi (2011 Target craze) for the chevron phase or what? Thank you whoever! I love them! I used the black on our new Bat design and the red on our new Pirate Skeleton design, both listed today!


These are Robert Kaufman (says Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman). LOVE these!!

 Again, check out TJs Fabric or Whimsical Designs for these great fabrics for FALL and CHRISTMAS! Really makes me want to start on Christmas designs!

Have a great weekend! I have been working all week on a large baby order (be on the lookout for my next post) and sampled 5 new Applique Cafe designs yesterday and this morning. I just turned my machine OFF and am going to try to leave it off all weekend! It’s time for consigning the kids clothes (NEXT WEEK) and I haven’t even started…..
