Lately I’ve been trying to use up the fabric I already have, instead of buying more. It was going pretty well too. I made a couple of quilts out of my stash and it was smooth sailing. I was looking at the beautiful fabric coming out and saying to myself “that’s lovely, but I don’t really NEED to buy it”. All this changed though when I spotted three fabric lines at Fabricworm and I knew my fabric diet was over.
The first line that tempted me was by Anna Maria Horner. I read Anna Maria’s blog and she is a really talented fabric designer. She also makes beautiful clothing and quilts. The line I bought is called Innocent Crush and I bought a fat-quarter bundle.
The second line is brand-new from Jay McCarroll called Habitat. Jay McCarroll will be familiar to you as the first season winner of Project Runway. I don’t really follow Jay’s work, but I saw this line and had to get my hands on it. I bought a half-yard bundle.
Finally, Alexander Henry has come out with a line called Heath, which features a lovely pattern available in 6 colours. I chose the Charcoal colour and bought 3 yards of it.
At this point in the post, I hope you are thinking “those fabrics would look nice together”, because that is my thought. I think Innocent Crush and Habitat would be perfect together in a quilt top and I want to use Heath as my backing fabric. That’s the plan. I can’t wait!
