Trendy Tuesday

Happy Trendy Tuesday everyone!

Welcome to the very first edition of Trendy Tuesday where I’ll be highlighting some of my favorite trends in the current fabric market. From colors to shapes and all other possibilities, we’ll be looking at similarities among fabric collections hitting store shelves.

Up first is the color grey. Once upon a time it was very hard to find fabrics which featured the color grey. You’d look high and low in most LQS’ to come up with a couple examples and sometimes even go away empty handed.

Fret no more my dear ones, grey is a hot color right now and is being included in most new lines. Take the recent collections Strawberry Fields, Sherbet Pips, and Ruby into consideration. The color grey is a heavy hitter amongst all three and really rounds out the collections I might add.

We’ve seen grey and all variations of the color pop up in standard collections from manufacturers like Michael Miller in their Ta Dot & House Designer lines. As well as coordinating solid collections from Robert Kaufman in their Kona, Freespirit in their Designer Solids and Moda in their Bella.

Whether you call it gray, grey, pewter, stone, slate, or charcoal, here are some of my favorite examples of fabric from today’s featured trend:
