Surfing Lion Boardshort Fabric

  Store-bought boardshorts for boys tend to be pretty ugly print-wise (I either try not to care or opt for a solid, maybe with a smart racing stripe or some piping). But The Fabric Fairy has this boardshort fabric (a polyester microfiber) which is awfully cute. I’d never considered making my kids’ swim trunks till now. Related [...]

Petit Pan

They also sell their fabrics to those who would like to DIY instead of (or in addition to!) purchasing finished goods. Petit Pan is inspired by Chinese themes and motifs, which is interesting to see. The collection [...]

Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day!

The True Up household has been visited by various virii and allergies and mixtures of both this week, so I wasn’t able to participate in Local Quilt Shop Day to the extent that I’d hoped (or anything else, for that matter), but, even though it’s past closing time already, I couldn’t let the day pass [...]

Mociun Fabrics

  Online shop Beklina has exclusive, limited stock fabric yardage from Brooklyn-based designer Caitlin Mociun.

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Amy and David Butler

Amy Butler‘s Alchemy collection is very complex! At 46 pieces you could be forgiven to not keep them all straight, but they’re divided up further into a lot of different substrates.   The Studio Collection contains 12 different prints in different fabrics, including rayon challis, sateen bliss, voile, velveteen, laminates, and linen rayon, aimed at [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Anna Maria Horner

Hard to know where to look at Anna Maria Horner‘s booth – there was so much to see and it’s all so pretty. Field Study, previously released in quilting cotton and now with rayon challis, voile, and velveteens joining the range, was made up in clothing, quilt, and bag patterns.   Anna’s Needleworks embroidery and tapestry collection patterns and kits [...]
