Summer in the City

Summer in the City is finally here. I've been waiting since Fall Market for it to show up. It's a million times better than I remember. Is that possible? Here are some photos from the shop today. I'm practically weeping over how positively darling this fabric is. So nice and fun and happy.

There are 40 bolts of fabric in this line, we have all of them. All of them!!! My photos don't even capture half I'm sure.

We spent a lot of time cutting kits. The Swatches pattern is limited edition, it contains a set of 2 1/2 inch swatches of each of the fabrics in the line. I've had my pattern and I've been waiting for the fabric. We just ordered another dozen patterns before they sell out. Seriously, I can't believe how stinken cute it is. I've been cutting strips all day and thinking "Gee this would look cute in a bag" and "Gee, I think I could make a cute top out of this" and "Gee, I'm thinking one quilt isn't enough out of this fabric" and then trying to decide just how much to get of extra pieces.

The pattern is so cute. I've got my pile of fabrics and that's my next project. (after Elizabeth's bag) Isn't the packaging darling! Melissa and Leslie had these sweet little baskets that perfectly match. I could just eat the whole thing its so good. Of course my photos don't do it justice so when I get my fabric all laid out you know I'll have to snap another (thousand) photos.

Because did I mention, I love this fabric?

I'm wiping the drool from my keyboard. How many yards did you get? That is beautiful stuff. I would go broke if I worked there. I could never make more than I would spend.

I just got back from a quilting retreat, and one of the gals found two charm packs of Summer in the City and made a quilt top in a few hours! This fabric line is without a doubt, one of the prettiest, most unusual to come out in ages! If you click on my link, you can see a photo of Sara's quilt top, "Urban Chicks" made from this fabric group. I can't wait to see more things made up from this collection! I will definitely be checking out your kits!

I need to go to another quilt show. I missed the Seattle one. I need more fabric. You have made me hungry for more fabric.

Damn you woman!

(I don't really mean that. You know I don't.)

These are so beautifully summer. I still wore my heavy wool coat yesterday so summer is still a distance away but I could certainly surround myself with fabric like this. At least to try to convince myself that summer is near.
