Bliss, Tailor Made, Castle Peeps and MARKET, OH MY! { Sunday Stash #9 }

Hi everyone! Well, the count down to Quilt Market Houston is officially on! With less than 5 days to go before we beat feet South, I'm rushing around the studio trying to get caught up. I've locked myself in the quilt room today and I'm not leaving till I'm finished with all my bee blocks. The coffee is plentiful, the fire place is roaring (it's only 43 degrees here today) and I'm a sewing mad man, but I do have a few minutes to spare to show you some recent fabric acquisitions! I received some yummy Bonnie and Camille, Cosmo Cricket and Lizzy House fabrics this week.

You may have read one of my recent Fat Quarter Shop Friday's posts where I spoke with Kim of October Afternoon. She's creative director of a scrap book company who recently sprang into the fabric market. One of the original scrap book companies who also started creating fabrics based on their paper products is Cosmo Cricket; Girl Friday, Snorkel, Early Bird and now Tailor Made has hit the shelves!

Cosmo Cricket - Tailor Made

The theme of Tailor made, as the name implies, is sewing. Filled with muted blues, yellows, pinks, reds and greens on a trademark cream background, Tailor Made looks to have the same color scheme as Early Bird. In fact, the lines mix very well. Here's a photo of a few prints from both lines together.

Cosmo Cricket - Early Bird and Tailor Made

I never realized how much the dot print on the left from Early Bird looks like sewing pins! And that measuring tape fabric reminds me so much of American Jane. My favorite print from the line is Folksy Floral.

You can find Tailor Made in the following blog sponsor's shops: Fat Quarter Shop, Hawthorne Threads, and Fresh Squeezed Fabrics.

Also arriving is a bundle of Bliss in flannel and cotton. Mother and daughter team Bonnie and Camille have created a drool-worthy collection for Moda that I've been pining for since I first saw it on Camille's blog. Red and aqua lovers eat your hearts out!

Moda - Bliss

Look at those dots! This line is my current favorite. As soon as I get my act together, I will finish piecing a Bliss Moda Bake Shop quilt and show it to everyone.

You can find bliss in the following sponsor shops: Fat Quarter Shop, Fresh Squeezed Fabrics, Fabric Shoppe, Wondrous Woven Fabrics, and Burgundy Buttons.

Some other noteworthy arrivals? I finally finished collecting fat quarters of Castle Peeps by Lizzy House. My boys love this fabric ...

  1. Love the new fabrics, especially the sewing tape.
    I have seen that used as sashing and edging, would be fun to work with. Have fun at market and look forward to seeing photos and hearing all about it.


  2. I wish I could go to Market, but I will be at the quilt show for least I know they will let me into that one :)

  3. Enjoy Market - can't wait to hear, and see, all the new designs for spring!
