It’s Monday! That means we talk fabric. Picture me clapping my hands with childlike excitement.
I love fabric, I LOVE fabric!
I have built a sweet little fabric collection surrounding Cotton + Steel’s Herb Garden in mint (see it here).
This is one of the most scrumptious shades of turquoise my hands have ever petted. I’ve been knee deep in my own garden lately planting sweet little pretties and this print reminds me of just that.
Get yourself comfy with something to sip beside you and let’s gush over fabrics.
Sweet little thread boxes by Cotton + Steel and Sulky Threads
Thread Box includes six spools of Cotton+ Steel 50wt 100% cotton thread and a perfect match for Cotton + Steel fabric collections. Pick a collection and then pick a box.
Like I mentioned above, today’s fabric bundle was based off the fabric to the left in the picture.
Here’s what we are looking at:
- Herb Garden in Mint
- Queen Anne in Peach
- Pencil Stripes in Natural
- Rosemilk in Sorbet
- Add It Up in Seaglass
- Bejeweled Seal in Teal
- Luminous Field in Printemps
- XOXO in Pink Cheeks
- Joy Crossroads in Pastel
- Trinkets in Blossom Metallic
Using the Herb Garden for a focal print, I added all the other prints. I have a post about how to mix fabrics using three different methods right here.
I am into florals and tonals/basics more and more lately and pairing them with low volumes is even better. I don’t normally use a lot of Cotton + Steel, and I don’t know why it’s always so perfect when I’m working with it. The colors are just great, and I really love everything that Anna Bond comes out with, ESPECIALLY her florals.
Amalfi Fat Quarter Bundle by Rifle Paper Co. includes 24 fat quarters and 4 half yard cuts of canvas.
I hope you love this bundle as much as I do!

I am almost done with my big thread article I’ve been working for almost two weeks now. I didn’t realize how detailed I was going to get, but there was much to discuss and your comments and thoughts were extremely helpful and eye opening. I think I tried almost everything my readers mentioned.
I have a few more spools of thread to test before I’m ready to post. I’m hoping to be ready this Friday, but we’ll see. Stay tuned. And again thanks so much for your feedback. It was very eye opening and I’ve been a bit in the dark when it comes to thread. Hugs!
LOVE this fabric collection you put together! All of my favorite colors.
Beautiful fabric colors. I am looking forward to learn more about thread! Thanks for all your time you are putting into this for us!
Thanks so much for reading along, Doris! 🙂

Where did you purchase your rose and butterfly pins? I just love them. I made the Southern Charm quilt and just love it. You are one of my favorite blogs.
Hi Donna! I made the pins. Email me if you’d like directions and products. Thanks so much for reading along!
I always love your mix of fabrics.
Oh you’re the sweetest! Thanks, Linda.
