Fearless & Expressive: Spirited Fabric Collection

Spirited_Banner-600pxHowdy, yall! 

I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving weekend, I know I did! This past weekend it gave me time to reflect all the things I've done through the year, and really appreciate what I accomplished. It's nice when you set a New Year's Resolution, and actually do it! It's a great thing, whether you completed a big sewing project you've been working on a long time, or something small, it's something to be proud of! Now to finish out the year with a bang, and starting this month with Sharon Holland's latest collection, SPIRITED

Let be honest here, this is hands down one of my favorite collections from Sharon! These just speak to me, the warm sienna, the denim blues, and the marigold yellows are just colors I will wear/sew with all year. With a southern twist, these prints are going to be fun to sew with for apparel, home decor, and some lovely quilts. 

Paying a tribute to the summer’s last blooms and nature’s majesty. Spirited is a collection with an attitude as big and bold as the Midwest prairie.

Representing a fearless attitude, but showing off a majestic side with graceful horses and romantic florals, you'll find something that fits your mood.

Garment lovers rejoice as this collection is filled with apparel friendly substrates! With some many choose from, the knits are going to be great for the fall season, you can make long sleeve shirts and even some cozy scarfs. If you want something even softer, and lightweight, check out the rayon featured in the collection, where you can make some blouses or even kimonos- perfect for layering!

Celebrating the Art of Embroidery: Meriwether Fabrics

Meriwether_banner

Today is a lovely day here in south Florida because currently, the temperature is in the 60s! That's pretty cold down here considering we are pretty used to 90-degree weather almost all year round- it's nice to have a break from the rain too. When there is not a single cloud in the sky, the sun is out, and there is a cool breeze, it's the perfect recipe for making me happy! Which brings me to today's latest AGF collection release, Meriwether

Meaning "happy weather" in Middle English, this collection is available in 16 prints and it's all cotton, which means quilters, you will have tons of fun sewing with this group of fabrics. This collection celebrates the art of embroidery and hand-stitching techniques as a way to tell a story surrounding the love and enchantment of nature around us.

Meriwether tells a peaceful meadow story. Coming in two colorways, one to celebrate the peacefulness in all us when the sun is shining and a darker colorway to represent the warm breeze that moves through the fields of wild blooms.

In this fabric collection, you'll find graceful rabbits with their cotton ball tails, colorful blooms, and dancing june bugs. (The june bugs is my favorite!! Reminds me when I was a kid, I use to play Animal Planet with my cousin and catch all kinds of bugs.) 

If you'd like to take a closer look at these prints,  watch out the latest YouTube video, where I give you some more information on the scale and color information on these fabrics. Make sure to give the video a thumbs-up if you enjoyed it. :)
