This week I think
I'll focus on "the great outdoors"! We have many great
new fabrics that could fall into this category.
We have a GREAT VARIETY
of fabrics full of FLORALS, CRITTERS, CAMPING, WILDLIFE.
See the Alexander Henry
MATISSE COLLECTION, as well as many other wonderful fabrics, like
BARCLAY, where snails have beautiful portable homes!
And while I may be more
women (above) who prefer to simply lounge around, bringing the
outdoors in with vases full of fresh flowers and pastoral paintings on
the walls, LOL, I know many of you just love CAMPING!
I have done a little
camping in my life. But I'm not usually referred to as a
"happy camper"! However, I love these fabrics, because
I am still drawn to the ROMANCE of camping!
VINTAGE motor camping modes really takes me back to my high-school
days when I thought I might actually like camping if I could just get
off the ground and out of my soggy tent!
Then there is HOME
AWAY FROM HOME from Anita Phillips for Wilmington Fabrics.
This reminds me of trips
to Colorado, where again, we were
often cold and in a tent!
Check out this clever
small quilt featuring 4 great camping images sold as a panel.
KIT AVAILABLE here:
FREE PATTERN available
Or purchase 1-1/2 panels
and simply use them as is!
Small enough to use for
extra warmth in a tent or camper (can I suggest wool batting?) or
enjoy hanging on the wall, staying at home, like me! ;)
Still with a vintage
feel, check out ARE WE THERE YET
from Kris Lammers for Maywood Studios.
See I really am drawn to
the "concept" of camping.
I like the idea of
surrounding myself with very carefully selected items and gadgets,
that all have many clever applications.
And sleeping in cozy
quarters is always appealing.
And being out in the
middle of nowhere, where it really gets dark and you can smell
and hear your surroundings and not want to hold your nose! LOL
that reminds me of one of the
things I don't like about camping! ROTFL!
See all the clever
fabrics in the collection, ARE WE THERE YET, here:
See the FREE QUILT
PATTERN designed by Jackie Robinson for Maywood Studios here:
is one of the clever "blender" pieces from ARE WE THERE
This may be my very most
favorite part of CAMPING! LOL
Even if, like me, you
don't particularly enjoy the gritty part of living in the wilderness,
and the flowers, trees and beautiful grasses make you itch and sneeze, I hope
you can find a project that will help you too bring a bit inside to
enjoy the GREAT OUTDOORS!
You can see all our NEWEST
FABRICS first on the WEB by clicking here:
the past few weeks, I
have bought 100s of new BARGAIN FABRICS and these can all be found at
the BARGAIN STORE. They include BENARTEX, FREE SPIRIT, RJR and
more. There is new BABY FLANNEL as well.
We also transferred and
MARKED DOWN hundreds of additional bolts from the downtown
store. Check them out while the supply is best at CHARLOTTE'S
BARGAIN FABRICS at The Chisholm Trail Mall just south of Newton!
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Have a great weekend!
