Fabric Candy

Happy Valentine's Day!  How about some eye candy from my friends at Sew Fresh Fabrics...

At this very moment I am absolutely craving a rainbow. I need, need, need to sew something full of color. This fabric candy is looking sooooo good.  I think this is the week I'm going to have to finalize plans for the rainbow-hued Ticker Tape Quilt-Along.  So, get your scraps ready folks!

On the left are three happy prints from the Sugar Pop collection (more colors here) and on the right are a rainbow of hues in Metro Living Circles. With names like marigold, chartreuse and chocolate, I simply could not pass by this fun new basic.  The chocolate circles are destined to become a quilt back quite soon!

And here are some more "practical" purchases. Up top are Robert Kaufman's "Quilter's Linen Basics" in grey and cocoa. The cocoa came in quite handy when I discovered I needed a border for yesterday's quilt top!  These fabrics are not linen at all, but quilter's cotton instead.  They have a subtle grid-like print on top that reminds one of linen.  I think they're quite nice as a solid!

I also picked up some new-to-me shades of Valori Well's Nest berries and another Herringbone from Modern Meadow (Herringbone looks fab with anything.  He's such a nice guy). 

Oh, and I have a Valentine for you:
