New Fabric for The Shop

This weekend, I went to the mountains for our annual girls' sewing weekend at the cabin. Of course, this trip included a stop at the famous Mary Jo's cloth store. We spent half a day there, picking out fabrics for different projects, and I used the opportunity to purchase some new fabrics for my shop.

Here's a preview of things to come :

Amy Butler's Optic Blossom in Olive, and Wall Flower in Pink
I love this combination. I also think the Wall Flower fabric will be very pretty paired with cream linen.

Michael Miller's Disco Dot in "sorbet", paired with Robert Kaufman pink polka dot.
I love pink and green together ... maybe it's because I live in Charleston?

The pink polka dot also goes well with another pink fabric I had previously purchased.
I think these will make great coffee cozies.
Have you noticed how much pink fabric I purchased? There is a reason for that ... more details to come later!

Again ... Amy Butler's Wall Flower, this time in the Sky colorway.
I see this paired with cream linen ... great for shopping bags or coffee cozies! LOVE the grey.

Michael Miller's Disco Dot in "caribe", paired with either FreeSpirit's Snow Blossom in lime green or Robert Kaufman's solid blue. Fun and fresh!

What do you think? Which new fabric combo is your favorite?

My favorites are the 2 paired with pink polka-dots, but you know why I have pink on the brain. If I send you a dress pattern, could you make Mary a dress? Love,
