What a great day! New fabric has arrived! My husband and I own a small farm in Upstate New York. We have a dog, a horse and 17 chickens. In the past we also had goats and a couple of cows. For this reason, I am always on the lookout for fabric with a farming theme. I was really happy to find “Down on the Farm”. I love the pictures of jams, jellies, and canned vegetables in this fabric. I can’t wait to make some place mats or a table runner with this and its companion fabrics.
Here Fishy Fishy Fishy. When I was growing up, my family and I spent time every summer in the Thousand Islands camping and fishing for bass, pike, sunfish, and pike. This fabric (Aqua Bass Fish) brought back lots of wonderful memories. I still love to get away for a week to fish (even if it means setting aside my quilting). The fish in this fabric are very realistic and I bet the fisherman or woman in your family would love to have a quilt or even a pillowcase made with this fabric. Check out the companion fabric that I have selected that match the browns, greens, and iridescent colors in the fish.
Most of the quilters I know are also gardeners. We seem to crave floral fabrics. I have a couple of new ones for you. I have yellow, pink and green companion fabrics to go with Black Floral. The red and grey fabric that looks great with Down on the Farm also goes perfectly with White Large Floral.
I have just highlighted a few of the new fabrics here. Be sure to check them all out by clicking HERE. Now I just need to decide which fabric to feature first in a new pattern. Too many choices, so little time. Enjoy and Happy Quilting!
