Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet just launched her first fabric line and I have been anxious to get my needle in it. It is so bright and fun. If you haven't been to Lori's site please take a minute to stop and see how wonderfully creative she is. Each post is full of the fantastic creations she makes with her needle and thread.
This line comes in the blue hues and the pink hues. Needing to have one of all of them, I picked a layer cake and a fat quarter. My name is Renee and I am a fabric hoarder. I am realizing now I am a fabric line hoarder. Madness. Recently, I de-stashed to a sweet middle schooler who took up sewing for the summer. This new line is helping to fill up my fabric locker...again.
Riley Blake is the company behind Lori's line.
A modern take on vintage patterns.
Charm for sure. Not a detail overlooked.
This is my online fabric shop of choice. Not only do they always have what I need, they ship really fast.
Oh the plans I have for this sweet line. Right out of the cutest magazine/book from Australia. This comes from a shop called Fabric Patch that ships to the states. Leanne House is the designer behind this publication. Yes, it can be expensive but it is so worth it. This is one of very few shops that I have found that will ship to the states. I usually keep notes of patterns that I want to order and do it all at once every few months.
These English pattern pieces have always been my favorite. I think Lori's line will be perfect for it. A small 36x36 inch quilt for a table topper.
Just a peek at some of the other projects that fill the pages of this cute little magazine.
I cannot wait to start. The next edition comes out June 1st...
