Fabric Friday

For a few weeks now I've been toying with the idea of having a bit of structure to my blog and doing "Fabric Fridays" where I select a fabric that I am in love with at the moment and share it with you - cause we all love fabric :) So when I went on and started to type up this post, I searched Fabric Friday and guess what, well maybe you already know cause you read those blogs, but this is not a new idea. Quite a few blogs have this, and why not, great alliteration and everyone loves fabric so it makes sense. So I am joining the bandwagon this week...

I've had this particular fabric around the house for a few weeks (hmm has it been a month?) now and just haven't had time to make something with it. It is called Gems in Ocean by Patricia Bravo for Art Gallery. It is soooo lovely. I am not typically one for overly girly fabrics but instead go for a cleaner modern vibe but this fabric just kept calling out to me and I finally just got it. And it is even more beautiful in person.

The hues of blue and purples are just stunning. I am not sure what I am going to do with it, but it would make a lovely quilt or maybe a bag liner (as it isn't canvas and I prefer my bags canvasy). The interesting thing about this fabric is that it is a different texture than other fabrics I have from say Robert Kaufman or Michael Miller. It is softer somehow, feels more luxurious, it says Premium Cotton on the selvedge but what does that really mean? It sorta feels like organic fabric from Birch.

Anyway, I also got these fabrics to go with it (obviously I was thinking quilt at the time) and I love them all too, they are all part of the Bazaar Style Collection.

 I hope everyone is having a good Friday! Happy sewing, fabric shopping or hanging out by a nice warm pool :)
