My dream of having bolts of Christmas fabric in the shop has come true! Maude Asbury’s line Tinsel arrived last week & I’m sooo pleased with it. We’ve already been planning samples from it. It’s full of prancing reindeer, whimsy Christmas trees, argyle prints & frosty mittens! I’ve even snagged yardage for my own stash, but who could blame me, right?

These are a few of my fave’s from the line..

More Christmas fabrics arriving soon from Riley Blake. We ordered the Alpine Wonderland collection by Sheri Berry, who now goes by the name Sheri McCulley Studios. Check out her blog for some sneak peeks!

I also wanted to share with you all the fabric finds Paige and I came across last weekend at our local quilt shops. I picked up a print from Rouenneries Deux by French General for Moda and some coordinating Anna Griffin prints at Pieceful Gatherings in Fox River Grove. I’m totally in love with the panel print with the birds on it!

Material Girl in Crystal Lake has a full range of colors of the Shot Cottons by Kaffe. Shot cotton is special because the warp and weft yarns are 2 different colors woven together to create a special depth, a “shot” of color. When the edge of this fabric ravels, you can see a bright contrast to the body of the fabric. It has a linen look to it and I love to embroidery on these kinds of fabrics, so I bought one of each!

We also visited A Touch of Amish in Barrington. The new Halloween line Happy Halloween from Moda was in.

I have to STOP shopping! I have too much fabric and not enough time!

Paige comes back from Spring Market this weekend to share with us all her great finds for upcoming fabric lines so be sure to check back for that.

Have a great weekend everyone!
