(The Triumphant Return of) New Release Tuesday

New Release Tuesday is my weekly roundup of new fabric sightings. These fresh arrivals have started to arrive in fabric shops and are ready to buy. Retailers, as always, if you carry any of these collections, let us know in the comments.

It’s been a long time since the last New Release Tuesday … it took a hiatus during quilt market coverage and decided to stay on vacation. But it’s time to come back. Now, there is a TON of collections that have come out since October, and I won’t even try to go back and hit them all. Let’s just pick up with the last week or two.

Freespirit - Jay McCarroll - Habitat

If I’m not mistaken, everything FreeSpirit/Westminster introduced at the Fall Quilt Market is now in stores. Jay McCarroll’s Habitat just arrived at Spool in Philadelphia, and I’m seeing it in a couple other online shops too, so it’s just a matter of days before it’s everywhere!

Kiss Me by Suzi Ultman, Suburbia by Caleb Gray, and Daisies & Dots by Piece O’Cake Designs are some recent goodies out from Robert Kaufman.

Central Park by Kate Spain and Hoopla by Urban Chicks are my favorites from Moda’s January releases.

The eagerly anticipated vintage video game prints in Smirk by Kyla May are now available. I didn’t see the GOTS-certified organic collection Suzi-Q at Quilt Market, but it’s here and I love it. Both are from Timeless Treasures.

I’ve been on a basics kick lately, so I’m all over Alexander Henry‘s Heath, formerly exclusively on their home dec weight cotton, but now on quilting weight cotton (and in some new colors). Photo from Fabricworm.

And speaking of Fabricworm … owner Cynthia Mann’s organic cotton manufacturing arm, Birch Fabrics, just released the much-anticipated Beach Mod by Monaluna and Marine by Dan Stiles. Love!

For all you midcentury modern fans, don’t miss The Grand Tour, the collection of reproductions from the Victoria & Albert collection from David Textiles.

I’m sure I’m missing something … if so I’ll catch up next time!

    I just got some Circa 60s–I love it!! I also love the Central Park that I just got! And I’m sure I will love the new Jay McCarroll when I get it soon–it’s really fun and funky!

    Another lovely collection from Birch. Look for Circa60 at my site and as always, free shipping on your order over $50 in the US and Canada. I’m so thrilled by all the new organic collections coming out within the next couple of months. They are really raising the bar. So much talent and hard work.
