Fabric Sweep!

January 18th, 2013

Or Eye Candy!  as I might call this post…

I have been SOOOO overwhelmed with the two dayjobs over the last few months, and I haven’t been able to show you some of the fun lines that I have received from some of those wonderful manufacturers out there…

So here’s what I have already played with:

Cloud 9’s Happy Drawing, Too! by Ed Emberley.

happy drawing too!

Pattern coming soon in downloadable PDF form here at Blue Nickel Studios for a very reasonable price.

Birch Fabric’s Camp Modern/Camp Sur.

camp sur and camp modern


I made a quilt for Fall Market with this fabric and that quilt is going to be redone in another line for a magazine this year, so I can’t show the quilt, but it is fun and easy….

also I started a project with Thomas Knaur’s Flock last year and I think that I am going to add some of this line to it.  I really don’t like doing one-liner quilts anyway, and this palette goes very well with Flock in my opinion, so there you have it.   That pattern should also be available here in awhile as well.
—————————————————————————————-

And here’s what is coming up to play with!!

Here are two really “guy-style” prints

Free Spirit’s  Seven Wonders by Parson Grey.

Cloud 9’s MicroMod  by Rob Bancroft.

I have this grand idea for these two mixed with some solids and other equally ‘rugged’ prints that may eventually spawn a second book  (when I ever get this first freakin’ book done!)
——————————————————————————
This sweet line is going to be a project done in connection with GenerationQ soon too.

Clothworks’ Little Village by Kinkame

And this one? oh…just love this so much…..I have something planned with a nice solid orange….and maybe a little grey…..Hoping to get it in a magazine too, but the fabric may already be too “old” for a mag, so you may be seeing it here as a pattern as well.

Kaufman’s Architextures by Carolyn Friedlander.

———————————————————————————
Big plans? oh yeah, as always?  So much fabric, so little time…..

What are you loving here the most? Leave a comment and I will send a random winner some scraps* from their favorite line listed above.  I will draw a name next Monday on Martin Luther King Day.  That seems an appropriate day to win something, huh?

*Some scrap bags will be larger than others based on what I have left and what I can bear to part with…..

    I am loving the architextures! I have made a commitment to sew from my stash, this year, but that line is seriously tempting me off the wagon!

    Gah ~ it’s like picking your favorite….fabric. Torture.

    Architextures is just a tiny bit higher on my must-play-with list.

    I would have to say my favorite is Seven Wonders but Architextures is a close second. I would be happy with either one and what you are willing to part with. Thanks for the chance!

    All of the fabric is gorgeous – but since I am married to an architect , I would choose Architextures! Thanks for sharing!

  15. Pattyon 18 Jan 2013 at 9:11 pm

    Camp Modern/Camp Sur is my favorite. The other fabrics are great too. I’ll be waiting to see what you make out of the last stack shown.

  16. mrsmooreon 18 Jan 2013 at 9:28 pm

    Well, lucky, lucky you getting to play with all those wonderful prints! I am really drawn to the charm of Little Village right now.

  17. Evelynon 19 Jan 2013 at 2:30 am

    Little Village is my favorite!

  18. Kathy Schmidton 19 Jan 2013 at 3:59 am

    Yes, indeed, the architextures! But the seven wonders is also pretty cool!

  19. Debbie Galletton 19 Jan 2013 at 7:48 am

    Happy Drawing, Too is my favorite. I used to have an Ed Emberly drawing book when I was a child.

  20. Shelley Con 19 Jan 2013 at 8:13 am

    How fun to get to play with new fabrics! Day jobs would be the neccessary evil to have to deal with…maybe someday, fabric will be your daily job!

    I’m liking the Happy Drawing because of my grands and the Seven Wonders for me :) Can’t wait to see what you have in store with all these projects!

    I saw the micro mod line by cloud 9 and said that I must get me some of that. I make a lot of childrens quilts and so like the bright colors and modern look of the graphics of this line.

  22. Mary on Lake Pulaskion 19 Jan 2013 at 12:06 pm

    I wouldn’t get anything finished looking at all of those lovelies!
    That Cloud 9 Micro Mod by Rob Bancroft looks like something I would love to play with!

  23. Elizabeth Johnsonon 19 Jan 2013 at 12:49 pm

    I have to say camp modern/camp sur we live in the country and my little guy would love that!

  24. Bonita Con 19 Jan 2013 at 1:31 pm

    Scraps! I love them. The Architextures pulled me at first glance! Would love to get any of them. So many ideas!

  25. Annaon 19 Jan 2013 at 7:05 pm

    Love them all! Would love to play with any of them!!

  26. Jeanne J.on 19 Jan 2013 at 7:22 pm
