Welcome, Cottoneer!

I am SO excited to introduce you to Cottoneer today!  This fabulous California-based fabric shop is my newest sponsor, and it's a match made in heaven.  They have a well-curated collection of my favorite fabric brands all presented with impeccable taste.  Come see!


I found Cottoneer when searching for the Spectacle fabric collection by Cotton & Steel.  Those fun, playful prints became my Peg People Baby Quilt

Cottoneer sells the collection as yardage or in two types of bundles.  My favorite is their Primarily bundle, which mixes Spectacle with other modern quilting fabrics.  I love how she added a range of simple, single-hued helpful fabrics to create a more spacious feel with the fabric range.

In fact, I think the best way to show the breadth of their beautiful fabrics is to share this collage of custom bundles.  Yum!  I see Rifle Paper Fabrics and Anna Maria Horner Loominous, Carolyn Friedlander and Art Gallery, Nani Iro and Outback Wife!


If you pop over to Cottoneer for a looks-see, you'll notice right away the preponderance of pretty pictures.  Here's what the husband-wife team behind Cottoneer, have to say about it:

Purchasing fabrics from a small square graphic is hardly helpful when you’ve got a new baby quilt to plan. Shopping online does not compare to walking through the fabric store and touching all of the wonderful fabrics with your own two hands. So with that problem to fix, we set a goal for ourselves:

At Cottoneer, we promise to photograph EVERY SINGLE piece of fabric that passes through our hands. And we don’t just photograph it once, we photograph it several times. We post all of these images to our website and instagram so our shoppers can be as close to feeling the fabric, but with the bonus convenience of shopping online… in pajamas of course.

The store also stocks a selection of tools and notions.  I think it's no accident that they are such pretty notions, with modern rainbow hues.  In fact, I'm sensing a rainbow theme.  Yes, indeed, a store after my own heart!

You're in luck because lots of fabrics are on sale now between 10-20% off, including most of the bundles I linked to and ALL organic fabric through Sunday, April 22nd.

If I could win, I would snap up a bundle of Ombre Confetti Dots.  Every time I see these fabrics pop up, they absolutely charm me. It seems like they mix easily with everything!  I think, like the metallic illuminated graph I've been using lately, they would be great for garments too.

I also have my eye on that bamboo point turner.  Mine is sad, cracked plastic.  I wonder if it would work for pressing machine paper piecing seams too?

Hmmm... mother's day is not far off.
