crazy fabric love Friday

Pin It
Oh my goodness.

True Colors

I didn't know this was going to show up at my house yesterday. But I was pretty happy (happy being a total understatement and trying to figure out how I could send my kids to their grandma's two weekends in a row)... ;)


These are the True Colors fabrics from Free Spirit fabrics' new line of blenders (they'll have them at Market and I believe they're being released in November). These are the lines from Anna Maria Horner and Joel Dewberry, and they are the most magical fabric thing I've seen in a long time. Seriously. I've got an upcoming design that will be featured in American Quilter, and these were the fabric line my heart was set on to make the quilt, and they are here!

Here they are by print:
JD & AMH true colors


and in color order:

And the ones from AMH (who I like to think I have a bond with because she's held my daughter)...

AMH true colors

See? Magical. ♥

--------------------

Something I DID know was coming yesterday was a really fabulous order from Julie at The Intrepid Thread.  I probably would have resisted had I known the True Colors fabrics would arrive so swiftly, but I'm glad I didn't. Next weekend, I'll be heading to the SewOn Retreat, and I needed something to work with (such a lie - I have plenty, but Heather Bailey is my other favorite, and she hasn't released a new line for so long, so I *had* to get these).

There's a FQ bundle of Lottie Da, some of Leah Duncan's Tule, a few blenders from Acacia and Bungalow, and some Koi. All so pretty.

Disclosure: I'm not getting paid to blog any of this by Free Spirit, American Quilter, or The Intrepid Thread. Free Spirit graciously supplied the fabric for my upcoming design (thank you!!!). I have a side pattern editing gig with American Quilter magazine, and if you have any questions about submitting your own designs with them, and partnering with fabric companies to make the quilt, feel free to email me! I'd be happy to answer questions or get you in contact with my wonderfully upbeat, gracious, and fun editor Michele.

Happy weekend! It's harvest time around here... so that part about wanting to drop off my kids with Grandma... that was all true. 

Though I bet I'd miss them as soon as I dropped them off. The little loves. ♥ ♥

These fabrics are truly magical!

It's so crazy how we have the same taste in fabric! I caught a glimpse of the blenders on instagram (Heather B has one too!) and I can't wait till they are released. So pretty! Also a big Heather Bailey fan - picked up a few pieces of Lottie Da. Love Koi and I've been thinking I need a few of the basics from Acacia. See we could share a stash! Or then again maybe we wouldn't be friends any more :-)

OMG! Those are amazing. Joel dewberry is consistently one of my favorite fabric designers. And I so love AMH, but always feel like she's too sophisticated for me. I never think her things to together, until I see them all used together, and then they are fabulous!

I just, finally, got her Handmade Beginnings book, to make special things for my new special one.

Beautiful fabrics!!!

Auntie Pami said...

Those blenders are fantastic!

Jenny said...

That is a helluva haul. Grape woodgrain and sunny yellow herringbone? I will have you.

Poppyprint said...

Fabric jackpot!!!! Looking forward to seeing your mere design!

Laurie said...

Those woodgrain and herringbone new colors are TO DIE FOR. I agree about Heather Bailey- I had bought a lifetime supply of freshcut and pop gardnen and I had all but given up on seeing anymore from her!

Cille said...

If I was to only pick two designers these are the ones. Unfortunately AMH is hard to come by here so i have to be really quick. I got lots of Drewberry fabric stashed away for upcoming projects. Have to finish your Roundhouse quilt first though...

Both the new lines are great... Come November it will be time to spend a lot of money on fabrics!

Ginny said...

Gorgeous! Both the fabric and your adorable children! Can't wait to see your new design!

Lee said...

Oooooh! Pretty jealous of that haul! : )

Little Bluebell (Adrianne) said...
