linen textures. When she got in touch about being a sponsor, I was thrilled to place an order with Fresh Modern Fabric because she also had....
That white/black tape measure print, which I LOVE and had previously missed!
In fact, she has tape measures in white/black and yellow/black by Cosmo Cricket. Both have made an appearance in my Summer Sampler quilt and both are hard-to-find I also indulged in that adorable Lizzie House ducky print. My sister's having a baby girl, so that may explain why I have baby fabrics on the brain. See those cute, teeny-tiny socks? I'm seeing this GooGoo Socks by Alexander Henry as a shoo-in for a pacifier chain or other bitty baby items. In fact, just looking at these fabrics is getting me all inspired to start work on her gift package. Baby is due in October. Oh, how time flies!
I restocked some key Konas. You probably know Cerise, Coal and Canary, but take a look at Melon. Most stores don't stock this shade, but it's a goodie. I like that it's pink but not precious. At Fresh Modern Fabric, Alice lists her Kona's as shown below, which makes it so easy to find what you need.
Here are a few more of my favorite things available at the shop...
Hands down, Alice has good taste. Just when my friend had turned me on to Lakehouse Dry Goods as people to watch for cool "word" fabrics, Alice shared that she'd received the uber-popular Annie's Farm Stand collection. If you're not familiar, this collection is very detailed. And that's exactly when the fact that Alice takes a million pictures of the fabrics in natural lighting really comes in handy. She loads several pictures for most prints including: a scale picture with a quarter, detail close-ups, a picture of the selvage, and pictures of any bundles. She posts all pictures to the Fresh Modern Fabric Facebook page in albums. So, if you visit her on Facebook it's an easy way to browse new prints at the shop in a picture-heavy, time-light way. For example, check out Annie's Farm Stand album. Isn't that so helpful?

Consulted Random.org on Saturday afternoon, and the winner is comment ONE. Which is hilarious and especially ironic, since her comment includes "Not sure I want to be the first comment - it never wins!!" Well, just goes to show that it never hurts to try. Sabs, I'll be contacting you today!
