Yet again it's been a busy week in shopland.
Annie at the Village Haberdashery has had bumper deliveries...
Geo centric from Cloud 9 is a new line printed on organic cotton canvas, so it's a slightly heavier weight than regular quilting cottons. Photos don't do this line justice, I have some and it's a really nice range of fabrics - perfect for home dec items and bags. Annie has also had the new organic flannels arrive fromCloud 9 - I made a quilt with this just recently and they're absolutely gorgeous.
Field study from Anna Maria Horner is also now online, 36 prints in total, over 3 colourways.
I couldn't decide which I liked best, so I ordered them all. Oops.
The ladies stitching club, from Oliver and S is in stock too. I mentioned this line last week, and if you missed it - it's really lovely. A slight departure from previous Oliver and S lines, and probably my favourite of theirs so far.
Backstitch has recently had a delivery of Petite Odile by French General. If you are fan of vintage, faded French linens you will absolutely adore this line. The buttons print is so cute.
Yardage and a bundle of the 6 prints are available.
A new bundle is available for stash building too. The greyhound bundle is 6 grey fabrics, perfect for building up your neutrals collection in your stash. You can never have too many greys.
Over at the eclectic maker are a lovely range of laminated cottons from both free spirit and michael miller fabrics.
Sewing with laminated cotton is not as tricky as you might think - these are much easier to sew than oilcloth and have great drape.
They're useful for bibs, bags, pouches and tablecloths (as well as loads of other things!) If you're stuck for ideas and fancy giving them a try, check out this blog which has all kinds of tips and free tutorials.
I think the strawberry print would be great as lunch bags and this Amy Butler print below would make a gorgeous shopper, don't you think?
M is for Make has in store whilst you're clicking on the links. Their site was down for maintenance as I was finishing up this post, but I can tell you Chicopee is in stock and you should love love love it. I always thought Hope Valley was my favourite of Denyse Schmidt's lines, but I'm thinking I might have to change that to Chicopee now. It's a perfectly scaled collection of fabrics for patchwork and quilting - check it on the M is for Make blog. The ladder dot (bottom right in the pic below) is my new favourite textured 'solid'. It's a really great print and will be so useful as an alternative to a true solid.
