New Release Tuesday

Cloud9 Fabrics‘ second 100% organic collection, Beyond the Sea, is just now hitting the shops. I love how it captures everything that inspires us about the seaside without being too literal. Can’t wait to see their next collection at Quilt Market!

The Spring 2010 Echino Ni-Co by Etsuko Furuya has sunglasses, cameras, and transportation — doesn’t it make you want to take a road trip? This is a linen/cotton blend. (image from Fabricworm on Etsy)

Art Journal, Bari J.’s followup to last year’s Full Bloom. I love that line quality, don’t you? Nobody else does anything like this and I think that’s cool.

The Ghastlies by Alexander Henry is setting the bar really, really high for Halloween-themed fabrics. This collection was met with a lot of enthusiasm when I showed you the preview from Fall Quilt Market, and now’s your chance to get it/start planning your entire Halloween around it!

Also new from those crazy kids at AH, Zanzabelle, an pan-African-inspired collection. Gorgeous, just gorgeous. (images also from Hancock’s of Paducah)

Summer Song by My Mind’s Eye for Riley Blake has singing birds, Orla-Kiely-esque flowers, and great, versatile coordinates. Wherever My Mind’s Eye is from, I’m jealous of their summers! This collection comes in quilting cotton and in flannel.

And that, folks, is what we call an outstanding week in fabric.

    Oh, how wonderful are those Ghastlies!! I’m never completely convinced by Halloween fabrics and had settled on a cute if bland orange pumpkins on gray background for my daughter’s next Halloween… Straight to the back of the cupboard it goes as I now wait for these fabulously creepy Ghastlies and their accompanying cats!

    That blue animal print is very gorgeous too. And with Castle Peeps on its way… I give up, it just isn’t possible to stop buying fabric…
