Valentina by Robert kaufman

It's that time of year.  New fabric arrives more frequently.  Here is some from the other day.

This line is called 'Valentina' by Robert Kaufman.  I love the turquoise, white and red.  The colours are so clear and bright it was fun to unpack on a dull snowy February day.  I am thinking of ways to use the prints and wish I still made clothing because it would make great summer dresses.  I will need a new bag soon and have been thinking about another "Everything Goes Bag" by Among Brenda's Quilts.  Sounds like a great retreat project.         If I had a bedroom with white walls I could love a summer quilt too. 
It's always time for a fun cat fabric.  Anne made this display with co-ordinating fat quarters.

Candy Treats and More

They arrived in time for Valentines! 
Moda Candy squares are 2 1/2" squares in a package of 42 fabrics.  You ae likely aware of Moda charm squares, 5" each, of a fabric collection.  The candy are the same fabric collections in smaller size.   Perfect for treats for your friends, a treat for yourself.  They are $5 for 42 squares.
The pattern booklet has 18 projects using the candy squares.
We have 3 collections of candy:  Simple Marks Summer, Snowmen Gatherings and Lario. 

To complement the candy  we have jelly rolls and charm squares of 'Snowmen Gatherings'.  Bolts are not due for a couple of months.

'Lario' is by 3 Sisters and would blend well with muslin colours and other Moda fabrics.

This is 'Simple Marks Summer'.  It brightened up today!  We have Malke Dubrawsky's first line of 'Simple Marks' in the earthier tones.  I love this one so much we have layer cakes, charm squares, candy squares and fat quarter bundles.  I cannot wait until the bolts arrive.  At least there is something to play with until then.

I love them so much I had to give you another view!
