Two weeks ago was the International Quilt Show in Pittsburg, PA. I wish I was there but instead I stalked some of my Favorite Fabric Manufactures like Art Gallery and Michael Miller on their Instagram pages . I also have a new crush: Cotton and Steel- can’t wait to get my hands on their Fabric!
Here are a few of my Favorites that will be on sale the later part of the year…
By Laura Gunn
Butterflies Butterflies, Butterflies, need I say more. I love both Color Ways and the solid in ‘Lips’ (great name) . Don’t you just love the gorgeous colors? They are so bright and Cheery. Perfect for Skirts and Dresses. This line will debut in August 2014.
By Violet Craft, Brambleberry Ridge
I adore the animal print and the metallic. I am loving that there are so many fabric designers putting metallic touches in their fabric. The colors are great for Late Summer to Fall clothing. Yummy (my husband laughs when I call fabric, “yummy”) . My Daughter loves animal print fabric so this collection is her favorite!
Arizona by April Rhodes
I have ordered this entire line and can’t wait for it to come out the end of May/June, Yay, any day now 🙂 . This is the first time Art Gallery will have knit fabric. If it is anything like their woven fabric it is going to be amazing. Great Summer to Fall colors. Oh, and did I mention this line is one of Art Gallery’s Limited Editions? Get it while it’s HOT!!!
