Spring arrived in my mailbox this week.
These beautiful fabrics are from Joel Dewberry's newest line, Botanique , which I happened to be lucky enough to win in a recent giveaway on his blog. Thank you, Joel and Laurie!
Just feast your eyes on these...amazing, right?!
|This palette says, "Spring"! Fresh and pretty.|
How about a closer look?
Gorgeous, right?! I think my favourite, favourite of this line is the print on the far left in the photo above. Something about that soft teal background and those delicate blooms in coral, pink with a light touch of yellow. sigh. I'm sure you will understand the squeal of delight and the happy dance that ensued after I opened this parcel. ;o) Inspired by this palette (and craving Spring! Good news is that it's melting like crazy here after all the days of snow March gave us), they've been washed and pressed, so I'm set to start sewing with them.
Imagine my further delight to discover these new fabrics will play very, very nicely with some pieces I already had in my stash (some Sandi Henderson, Lotta Jansdotter, Oliver + S and older lines from Joel). I'm making a little stack of possible candidates for mixing with Botanique and dreaming of what I shall make first with them. ;o)
Seriously, these fabrics make me want to push all other projects aside so I can start sewing with the new pretties. I keep saying I won't start another quilt until I finish all the ones I have waiting... but I don't know how much longer I can hold out with these calling to me. ;o)
