I thought Iâ€™d try something new – sharing the fabrics that I pick up to fill my stash. The intent isnâ€™t to have you go buy them, but to tell you why I choose the fabrics I do. I love pre-cuts. Most of my art quilts are small so I donâ€™t need large pieces of fabric. I tend to buy fat quarters or half yard cuts. If I love a fabric, I might buy a few yards to use in a bed or throw size quilt.
First up – Passport by 3 Sisters for Moda. I picked up a fat quarter bundle since there were so many good text and map prints that I could use as â€˜skinâ€™ on the girls and boys that are featured on my art quilts. Even the green and blue text prints might work too – green with envy or so cold sheâ€™s turning blue.
The ship fabrics are not likely to be in an art quilt, but who knows – they are pretty cool. They would definitely work in a boy themed kids quilt.
If case you want some yourself, I found my fat quarter bundle at Fat Quarter Shop.
