What we Love - October 16, 2010

October 16, 2010

We are loving some cotton prints this week. You may know that I am on a campaign to educate the world that cotton prints (quilting cotton) are a high quality broadcloth fabrication that can be used for apparel as well as quilting. The colors stay true wash after wash, and are easy fabrics to sew with. If you really can't stand ironing, I would steer clear. They are going to need a bit of a press to look their best!

Vickie has a couple of collections this week that she'd like to point out. The Irving Street Flannel collection by Erin McMorris has its vibrant colors, and is great for both girls and boys. She also loves Aurelia's Journey.  2011 marks the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War. Aurelia Bevins witnessed the events leading up to the war and over a period of years and created a sampler quilt of 44 blocks reflecting the history of the time. Aurelia's Journey includes fabrics from several Civil War collection including Twelve Oaks and Civil War Classics.

Andrea is in a retro chic mood this week. She is loving the collection All My Heart this week by
Amy Schimler for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. It's a cute collection of hearts that do not like your typical valentine. Andrea says, ''This retro chic collection has an overload of brightly color hearts!  I think it would be perfect for making cool tote bags!''

Lauren is feeling pretty colorful this week as well. She has chosen a couple of floral prints from the Richloom collection in our Home Decor Category. Lauren says, ''This


week I am loving Lucy in Licorice and Wizard in Garffiti from Richloom. I think they are sassy yet sophisticated!'' They are both home decor prints that are suitable for everything from draperies to slipcovers and pillows. Check out everything Richloom has to offer.

Have a wonderful fall weekend! Kristl
