Did you ear about Fabric Spot? It is a new Canadian online fabric store. They specialize in modern fabrics, solids and organics. They have a few designer collections. Among others, they currently have The Birds & the Bees by Tula Pink and Chicopee by Denyse Schmidt. They have a great selection of solid color fabrics (Kona solids from Robert Kaufman, Free Spirit Designer solids and Bella Solids from Moda). They also offer the organic line of solid color cottons by Robert Kaufman (Pure Organic solids) at the same price as the Konas.
For her Grand Opening, Karen, the owner, was kind enough to offer us (me and Cinzia from Deux Petites Souris) a fat quarter bundle each. I just got it in the mail this morning. I received fabrics from The Birds & the Bees collection by Tula Pink for Free Spirit. It is a bundle from the Sunset colorway. Isn’t it beautiful?
This one is definitely the one I prefer. I just love the design of the interlaced flying birds. I’m thinking of ordering some in other colorways (Apple and Storm).
Those fabrics her perfect for fall. All those pinks, oranges and browns. I just need to find the right project to feature them. Because of the mix of small size and large size prints, I was thinking of a quilt with large pieces. I would mix the prints with soft golden yellow fabrics. I already have a few Konas in yellows that would fit nicely. Maybe a quilt with large hexagons. It’s been a while I want to try out this tutorial by Jacquie Gering from Tallgrass Prairie Studio. I just love her quilt in the tutorial. Any other suggestions?
Anyway a big thanks to myfabricspot.com! It’s great to have another Canadian store online with modern fabrics.
