New Release Tuesday is my biweekly roundup of new fabric sightings. These fresh arrivals have started to arrive in fabric shops and are ready to buy.

Preview: Sanctuary by Patty Young

Here’s a little peek at Patty Young’s next collection for Michael Miller. It’s a quilting cotton collection (I love that you have to specify that now — it’s no longer assumed!) named Sanctuary, due out this October.
