Shop List Update

Just a quick little update in the middle of what is turning out to be an incredibly busy week! I finally got around to a little update to the Ultimate Online Fabric Shopping List, and I'm trying something new! If you click on that link here, or on the tab up above you will see a bit of a different format. At the top of the page I have located the Modern Fabric Shops (where I, and many of my quilty friends shop), while the "Other" Fabric shops are just below that. Don't fret, I have not removed ANY of the shops, and I've actually added about 30 more to the list (imagine that)! 

So now I need your help. What do you think? Is this format more helpful and user friendly or would you rather just one giant list? Also, who am I missing? I know we all have our favorites, but we were taught to share, right?!? Remember, I also reference this list when tracking down sales every week so I would appreciate any help I can get. 

And because I can't resist a little fabric love, have you seen the new Metallic Pearl Bracelets? I never jumped on the original bandwagon, but there's something about the shine that is drawing me in. Somehow I must resist until March as I already spent February's fabric budget on some Catnap (more on that soon)

Screen grab from the wonderful Patterncrush Fabrics!

As always, thanks for reading!
Carly Ann

p.s. Up next, a bit of a blog redesign! Don't hold your breath though, the day job is killing my fun time! ;)

Thrifty Quilting - Where to shop for your favorite Solid Fabrics!

Waaaay back in October of last year I posted my first Thrifty Quilting post entitled Thrifty Thread Shopping. It was well received, and yet I somehow never got back to it. When I did try and come up with something else to look at I was at a bit of a loss. There are so many different styles of quilting, and I know everyone has their own favorites, but one thing I'm fairly sure of is that quilters buy solids! Now I know not all quilters buy solids quite as compulsively as I do sometimes, but nonetheless they are a staple in many quilters stashes. So here it is....


So I would explain in detail all the 'stuff' about this project, but if you are wondering where the idea comes from I recommend going back to the Thrifty Thread post one more time. Those of you that saw that one, or just want to skip on to the nitty gritty, here we go!

First up is Robert Kaufman's Kona Cottons. Available in 271 glorious colors this seems to be a go to staple for many quilters. It's readily available both in stores and online, but today's post is focused on primarily online retailers. The results? Fabric.com ended up on top of this one, with a smaller retailer Delta Patchwork a close second. All 16 retailers I looked at for this category came in under $8.00, so I can see why this is so popular. 
Next up, MODA Bella Solids. These happen to be my favorites at the moment (yes I change my mind A LOT). They just work well for me and I love the color selection. I don't think I've ever looked and thought "Wow, I really wish that had this color." The results for this one surprised me a bit. Up on top of the list is Thousands of Bolts. Equally as surprising was the price, just $4.99! I went back to double check and sure enough there it was. Not only that, but there is an incredible selection! I picked a few colors at random and sure enough they were in stock! 
The next few options do not seem to be as readily available, but they can be found. The other great things is that many of them come in slightly different shades than the more popular Kona and Bella and that can really come in handy!

 This last one is not a solid, but I wanted to add it anyway. Robert Kaufman's Essex Linen is quite popular, and although I have not used it much I wanted to see the price difference (I'm endlessly curious)!
Now, if you are not brand baised, and just looking to break into using more solids, I have pulled out the top 25 from all the prices above. There is a bit of variety in the fabric manufacturers, but the main point is that they all fall in at under $7.00 per yard!


After all those numbers, here's the real deal. It is your choice who you shop with. Some people prefer a larger retailer that has a huge selection and rarely goes out of stock, while some people (like me) prefer to shop small business even though it may cost just a it more. The choice is yours! I am simply providing the facts and letting you make the choice! 

Have a store you love, or a different solid fabric you would like to recommend? Add a comment or shoot me an email and I will be sure and share your info! 



Here is where I put all my personal disclaimers:

1. I have not ordered from all of these suppliers, so I can in no way vouch for their personal delivery time, condition, quality, etc.
2. These prices to not take into account sales, coupon codes, shipping charges, etc.
3. I was not paid or asked to write about any of these stores. I do not have any sponsors or take any gifts to write these posts.

4. These prices are a reflection of the point in time that I looked at the websites prices. Most likely over the past 2 - 3 days. 
5. I semi randomly chose vendors from my giant Online Fabric Shopping List. Some I knew carried these solids, some I have ordered from, and some just seemed like the right fit!

Fabric Collections Coming Soon: Mormor & Sylvia by Lotta Jansdotter

So I've decided to branch out a bit and start posting some info on new fabric collections that are coming out. My reasons are two-fold. First, I'm a total fabric addict. I love to look at it, pet it, smell it. I want ALL the fabric! Second, and I hate to admit this, I don't know all the fabric. Some people have the uncanny ability to keep track of who designed what line from what manufacturer for the last ten years, and for the next two years to come for that matter. I don't have that. I figure this way I'm sharing some great new collections with ya'll, and educating myself at the same time. Win - Win! Now, I'm putting this up front in hopes that at least doing some of the leg work is "enough." I will be gaining most of my info from the manufacturers sites, and my best mate Google. I'm not in with these folks, and am simply sharing the facts. Hope everyone is cool with that! On to the goods! 

When I decided to do this, these were the first two collections that came to mind. Of course I didn't remember the collection names, but I remember the look, and I remember the designer. She is, of course, the one and only Lotta Jansdotter

From www.windhamfabrics.net


If you didn't catch that up above I said TWO collections! Hooray! They are very much integrated, but let me talk about them each on their own to start. First up is Mormor. While the colors are somewhat reminiscent of Bella, Glimma, and The Premier Collection, there are changes that really stand out to me. The colors are stunning! This collection adds to her prior palette with a beautiful coral and rich rubine red that I am so in love with. That combined with a soft mint and warm grey and it's a dream palette. 

Here it is in all its glory: Mormor. 

www.Windhamfabrics.net

I mentioned before that there are two separate collections, but that the go together. The second collection Sylvia is named after Lotta's grandmother, which I think is beautiful. It is on the opposite spectrum from Mormor, but still incorporates her signature look, but in all black and whites! I love a great black and white print, so I'm dying to get my hands on this. 

www.windhamfabrics.net
I do have to be honest and say when I first looked at the collection pages separately I was not quite sure I got it. I see the similarities but when they were not together on the same page it seemed that the black and white was a little harsh in comparison to those beautiful colors. When I started to really break down the colors all together though (I love you Pantone) then I saw how well it really all worked together. I mean, this is one seriously beautiful rainbow right there. 


I've shared the Windham link in quite a few locations above, so please head over there and check out more. For now I will just share a few of the images they have in the marketing catalog for these collections. How can I not, they are all so beautiful!




Last but not least, guess what they already have? That's right, a free quilt pattern! Hooray! You can find this amazing pattern designed by Ashley Necomb of Film in the Fridge right HERE!


So after all that now you must wait for this wonderful fabric to arrive! In the meantime, head on over to these shops and pre-order or sign up for a notification of when it arrives right now. I have no doubt that this will fly off the shelves at lightning speed! 

* Fat Quarter Shop
* Hawthorne Threads
* Fabricworm
* Pink Castle Fabrics

Well, I'm not sure I covered it as well as some people may have, but it's a first try. I will see how it goes for a bit and maybe try and squeeze a few of these 'new collection reviews' in every month. How can I not when there is such amazing fabric coming our way!

- Yes it is possible that the shop sold out before you got there. I also schedule posts to go up during the day while I am at work. So please be patient if I don't respond immediately. 
- Yes I am fabric obsessed and a total enabler to all my fellow fabric hoarders! #sorrynotsorry
- No I do not get paid to post these sales
- No these are not ALL the sales available online. There are thousands, and I am only one. ;)
- No I do not list every piece of fabric each shop has on sale. Not that crazy!
Now that the silly stuff is out of the way, on to the goods. ENJOY!
