Love That Fabric: July

With our focus on kids and birthdays this week, I found myself dwelling on fabric designed for children. Kids have an amazing, and often vivid memory for details of clothing, bedding, curtains, books and wallpaper. Ever try to skip a page when reading a book to a child? I can still visualize the circus wallpaper in my room that my mother tells me was gone by the time I was three. The light aqua background and colorful tents and animals left its mark, and I'm still partial to the mix of pale aqua with brights. It makes me realize that choosing fabrics your child likes may create a life-long happy memory.

This month's selection of fabrics is very summery, warm and luxurious. Right after Quilt Market, we see so many gorgeous new collections that narrowing our picks is not easy. It's a terrific time to look for lovely new fabrics like the ones we've chosen. These collections are either fresh in inventory at your favorite fabric shops or will be very soon. We're always interested to know what new fabrics are catching your eye.

This month, we're devoting the entire Love That Fabric! column to Rural Jardin. It's a grand fabric collection from French General for Moda. If you want to add the tranquil elegance of French farmhouse-inspired textiles to your home, look seriously at this collection. The selection is vast, with muted shades of blue, red and aqua; plus toweling and 54" cotton/linen yardage that is perfect for upholstery or slipcovers. It's an ideal choice for home décor with lots of well-imagined variety. If I think about it much longer, I'm going to have to redo my house in this fabric.

Love That Fabric: March

This month, Sew4Home kicks off a new monthly feature: Love That Fabric! Finding the perfect fabric for a project is immensely satisfying and often the difference between so-so and so-fabulous results. We look at a lot of fabric when planning S4H projects, and reluctantly have to bypass gorgeous collections because we just can't use them all. Each month we'll post a few new fabrics that really caught our attention and had our project wheels turning. They are all 'stash-worthy' – fabrics worth owning for their future possibilities. If you love them, get them while you can. Because like fashionable apparel, popular fabrics come and go; at some point even the most amazing fabrics are no longer in stores or online.
