Thinking of Spring

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?

Group #3.
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)


  1. Looks so beautiful, Katherine! Enjoy and have fun! x Teje

  2. Go know you must start cutting into these beautiful fabrics! I'm sure we'd all forgive you!!! I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

  3. Not surprised at all! Don't hold back!

  4. They are so very beautiful. So fresh! We're all craving that at this time of year.
    To answer your question, yes, the jacket is for me. With stacks of fabric, little hanging in my closet, and a new season to inspire me, I hope to get some clothes sewn.

  5. Thanks for sharing the eye candy, Katherine! How tempting! Congrats on that win!

  6. They are beautiful and it looks like they would go well with the Notting Hill line from Joel Dewberry too, which I still have some pieces of!

  7. They're all scrumptious! Looking forward to what you'll do with them.

  8. There you go, putting temptation right in front of me. I just have to keep reminding myself....I'm on a fabric diet....I'm on a fabric diet. What a great win! They're gorgeous.

  9. Congrats on the win! Such wonderful fabric goodness!


Go ahead...say something! Got a question for me? Ask it! I can't wait to hear from you... so start writing... and thanks in advance for letting me know you're sharing in my online adventures. Hugs and happiness to you!
