Fabric of the Week


No project to really share this week…working on a deadline while spending mornings at the pool for swim lessons.


While I was out of town, a lovely bundle arrived from Modern Yardage to play with, fabric by designer Heather Dutton.


I’m excited to cut into this as soon as I finish my current deadline-quilt. If you aren’t familiar with Modern Yardage, you can find out all about their fabric printing process on their Informational Page. The neat thing is you get to select the scale of your print.


These prints (in no particular order) are:
Fun-Fetti in Twilight Blue, Large
Take Flight in Walkway Grey, Large
Berry Branch in Emerald, Medium
Veranda in Noir, Medium
Tidal Pool in Ocean Depths, Large
Coral Reef in Kelp, Large
Molecular in Arctic Blue, Medium
Chaise Lounge Chevron in Citron, Medium

But as I mentioned, first I am working on a quilt I can’t share yet…but I can show the yummy fabric stack.


Lots of Bonnie and Camille prints with a couple others from my stash worked in. Can’t wait to show you more!

    I love all the designs and colors of these fabrics. Totally gushing. My youngest is still learning to swim as well. I am confident that he’ll be a fish in no time.
