Gotham Quilts is a NYC-based online shop launched this year by two self-proclaimed fabric nerds, Andrea and Ivette. They met last year at one of Andrea's classes, where - get this - Ivete fell so hard for quilting she finished three quilts during a 6-week class!
What will you find at Gotham? Designer fabrics, especially by Art Gallery and Freespirit. Organic fabrics, lots of those. American made solids, to reduce carbon footprint. Kits, fabric bundles, basically a whole lot of modern, thoughtful choices.
I like the clean, photo-rich homepage and simple navigation system. You can shop by color...
by organic fabrics and by designer/manufacturer too. Wherever you go, you can also sort by newness or price or popularity, smart tools. Critically, you can also "See All" to browse all fabrics, something I tend to do before checking out to make sure I don't miss anything when I'm already paying shipping.
Check out this serene collection in organic fabrics, called Haven by Monaluna! I haven't come across this before. I always keep an eye out for bold, but simple stripes. The kitties and birdies are super adorable. And the floral prints are very Scandinavian, no? I like.

Gotham Quilts makes small fabric bundles with just 6-9 pieces. While whole-collection fat quarter sets are gorgeous, they're typically out of my price range. I like how Ivette is putting together these little tastes. Oh, and she mixes fabric collections too!
Black and White Writing Bundle, case in point. Choose from fat quarters, half yards or yards for any bundle.
If you follow Gotham Quilt's blog or Facebook page, you'll be up to date on new arrivals and giveaway opportunities. Just in, Color:Full by Jennifer Sampon. My favorite pick is this feel-good, sweeping text print in indigo. I know, I know... what's with me and text?
