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 am just dying over this collection. It’s called Merlot. It is dreamy and delicious and begging to be made into something pretty. I’d love to use it in a Good Girl quilt. In fact, I’m making another Good Girl quilt for a Christmas gift and I’m thinking these will be perfect for it. I’ve got a family member who is owed something lovely.
Diagonal Seam Tape is a perfect solution for sewing straight diagonal seams without having to mark any lines! The special washi tape is strong, thin, and removes cleanly after sewing projects. Simply place the tape in front of the feed dogs with the red line in front of the needle as the stitch line. The black lines on either side of the center line represent a perfect 1/4″ seam allowance and are a great resource to use when making half square triangles, or learning to keep a perfect 1/4″. Each roll is 10 yards.
Melanie’s Tip: I wrote a blog post with video tutorial about this product here.
