Tomorrow arrives the wonderful collections from:
Sweetwater – Mama Said Sew.
|Mama Said Sew|
‘Mama Said Sew started on a trip to downtown Fort Collins, Colorado, also known as “Old Town”. It is a fun, lively place, filled with specialty shops, restaurants and the cutest little fabric store we had ever seen. It just so happens the name of that store is “Mama Said Sew”. Perfect! Perfect for that store filled with modern, fresh fabric and perfect for the name of a fabric collection. So after a few weeks of contemplating, we finally got brave enough to ask the owner if we could use her store’s name for our next collection. Thankfully, she said yes. So thank you, Angela, for your kindness and generosity! Mama Said Sew celebrates everything we love about sewing. The black, red and gray go wonderfully together, but we are most excited to make two color quilts- red and white, black and white, or gray and white quilts that are amazing, timeless and so striking’
Quilt Blocks by Ellen Luckett Baker
‘The Quilt Blocks fabric collection is inspired by the timeless quilt designs that have been passed down through generations of quilters, but here these classics are re-interpreted with a modern twist in three contemporary color palettes. Each design was hand-drawn digitally to give the collection an artistic, handmade quality differentiating the designs from others on the market. I can imagine all kinds of interesting quilts, clothing and home decor projects that can be made from this collection. These fabrics are a perfect fit for the modern sewer.’
Tradewinds by Laura Ashbury
‘Picture an ancient market in Zanzibar. Traders from Ceylon have crossed the Indian ocean braving the Barbary Coast pirates. They make their way to Zanzibar where they can trade spice for colorful cloth and other exotic treasures from far away lands. “ Trade Winds” captures the spirit of new discovery, and historic trade. Modern designs in vivid colors mix with ancient visual flavors to create a rich and timeless collection.’
Independence Trail by Minick and Simpson
‘Independence Trail is a reckoning of a family’s trek across our country in it’s centennial year. Inspired by journals from several young ladies of the time, it reflects on an imagined journey from the Midwest to a new home in Oregon. Leaving their family farm and orchards on the Great Lakes and making for a new place of bounty near the Pacific, we fill this family’s landscape with the fabrics of the time. Domestic simplicity with the hope of an abundant future – these fabrics evoke the time and the inspiration of that journey.’
Hurry, limited stock for these collections. It will be hard to part with these lovelies.
