Today’s post is part of a series on this blog every Monday.
I don’t know about you, but fabric is EVERYTHING! I love buying it, petting it and then gushing with you about it. I’ll show you my latest fabric purchases and where you can buy it too.

I’m so excited about making a quilt this calm, mixed in with low volumes, of course (wink!). I think this color palette I’m going with feels foggy or misty like a dreary morning, which is exactly what is happening around here most of the time lately. Winter feels.
I don’t use solids much as you know, but I do like them. Remember this quilt? I do love how that one turned out. Also, if you remember in the Star Dance quilt I used those Kaleidoscope fabrics by Alison Glass and they had the same feel as these Essex yarn fabrics have, them both being yarn dyes and all. There is a bit of texture there if you’ve never touched a yarn dyed fabric.

There are several posts happening this week. Tuesday, I’ll be announcing the next quilt along. On Wednesday we will be looking at the second installment of the The Great Big Scrap Discussion and on Friday I’m showing off a finished Bad Girl quilt. Yikes! Sorry about the extra post, but I didn’t know where else to fit it in at.
Thank you for being a reader of this site and for your support! It means a bunch. Have a lovely week!!
