Friday Splurge NEW FABRCS!

I just had to do it. I've had my eye on the new Joel Dewberry line, Deer Valley, for quite some time. The combination of red, chocolate and turquoise is stunning.

Look at all the yummy goodness that will be delivered to my mailbox soon! The photo to the left is the cool azure colorway. WOW!!!

I ordered a fat quarter set in Azure, and one in Persimmon. The patterns are so interesting in this line. The turquoise is so bright that it draws your eye immediately. The recent lines that have been released are all so eye catching. This is really an exciting time for quilting. All the great modern fabrics are wonderful.

The photo to the right is the warmer persimmon colorway. He still incorporates cooler turquoise, but the different shades of red he uses really spices it up. YOWZA!!

I think it would be really amazing to see how Mr Dewberry comes up with his designs. He must pull inspiration from everywhere. This line as a whole is so unique. He's already earned praise for his previous four lines.

He also has a third colorway in this line that I didn't order. The tarragon colorway just seemed a little too 70's to me. It has all the same patterns included, but the combination of yellow, chocolate and white wasn't appealing to me.

I also ordered a few fat quarter sets from Amy Butler. Just to make the most of my shipping cost. Wink Wink!

I'm a real big fan of her Midwest Modern 2 line.

I liked the way this sunset colorway line on the left combined pink and orange with a touch of yellow. Try combining those colors in a traditional fabric pattern. With her designs it works! I think the wavy lines would be a great choice for binding.

My favorite colorway for this line is definitely ohio sky, pictured to your right. I ordered this fat quarter assortment as well. The colors were relaxing to me.

Just mix these fabrics with some slate and white from her solids line and you'd have a neat, relaxing wall hanging.

I've noticed by going back and looking at all my most recent fabric purchases that I tend to gravitate toward the blues and reds. Turquoise has been a HOT color this year. It's been popping up everywhere.

Lastly, I scooped up this new Michael Miller fat quarter set of coordinating fabrics from several of his lines. There's turquoise and red, again!

I thought this set was really fun and playfull. Nice to have around in case you need to make a quick shower gift or newborn baby quilt.

The childish dots, stripes and critters stood out to me.

I can't wait to add these fabrics to my stash! Now to make room for them! Happy early birthday to me!
