We’ve received some beautiful collections in the past few weeks.  It will be exciting to see what wonderful things people make with these prints.  Be sure to add your photos to our SMS pool!

We have Swell by Urban Chiks (they brought us the super popular Summer in the City last year.)  This is a colorful, cheerful group that would make fantastic warm-weather dresses for girls of all ages! We have 32 fabulous quilt-weight cottons, as well as 4 coordinating seersucker prints.  (The seersucker makes me practically weepy with nostalgia for my childhood.  Truly awesome stuff!)

The much-anticipated Ginger Blossom by Sandi Henderson has arrived.  We love the range of colors in the group–from avocado to hot pink, they all looks fabulous together! These prints are moving fast, so grab some quick!

Jackie Shapiro has brought us a hip, bold new group, Botanical Pop,  that evokes Marimekko and the pop-art prints of the ’60s.  We see knock-your-socks-off handbags!  Or how about throw pillows that will surely bring a modern touch to your home decor?

Finally, one of my personal favorite groups is Sierra by Anna Griffin.  These fabrics were inspired by old wood block prints and definitely have a vintage feel.   I wish I could bring you in the shop and show you this collection, because the colors are much more stunning and complex than our screens can pick up.  The group has some coordinating solids that are a little “dappled” (think brown paper bag, but cooler)–almost like linen, but with a nice cotton hand.

This week we’re giving away one yard from any of these groups to 4 people.  We’ll randomly select winners from  the comments to this post.  To qualify, link to something “Wow” you’ve seen lately.  It can be a great project, a new book or a cool tutorial.  (Here’s one…Check out Beth’s Sculpey Nature Prints.)  Winners will be announced Monday.  Have a great weekend!
