Other Places: The year in fabric

Love fabric?  Cheesing over all of the new prints have come out this year?  Head over to True Up to check out what other are crushing on this year.  You can even play along yourself!

- Favorite Quilting Weight Cotton Collection: Good Folks, Anna Maria Horner

- Favorite Home Decor Weight Fabric or Collection: Deer Valley, Joel Dewberry

- Favorite Trend (Colors): Oranges, deep purples and maroons.  Together.  But especially oranges.

- Biggest Fabric World Story/News: Aside from all those lovely Quilt Market blog posts, I'm not too up on the news.  Anna Maria coming out with the voiles was pretty lively, no?

- Favorite New Designer:  Sweetwater.  Authentic got me very excited.

- Favorite Novelty Print:  Go Green!

- Favorite Floral Print:  I got into florals for the first time.  Kaffe Fasset had a dreamy floral that I bought as a remnant, so I can't even properly identify it, but it helped stir some new ideas.

- Favorite Organic Print or Collection: 

- Favorite Holiday Fabric or Collection:  Figgy Pudding.  It was holiday-ish, but lovely enough to admire even when it's NOT in season!

- Favorite Juvenile Print: Boys, Girls: Be A Man, Douglas Day

- Favorite Solid/Nonprinted: Kona.  Just about all of them.  Really.

I can't wait to see what we get to work play with in 2010!


  1. I love seeing all the new stuff online now! I can hardly wait to see them in person when I order them, too.

  2. I know, Karen! Each new collection is better than the one before!
