As consolation for not being able to attend the Sydney Quilt Show this weekend I purchased myself some fabric (oh really?) -
These are from Kokka Fabrics, and are part of their new range called Echino Spring. They are called Purple Forest, Aqua Forest and Grey Forest.
In keeping with the overall color theme here, these also fitted nicely in the Priority Envelope:
These fabrics are from left to right - Alexander Henry (Livingston Seagull - grey), Moda Cake Rock Beach (Water Honeycomb), Kaufman Essex Linen (Putty) and Rowan Fabrics (Shot Cotton in Grape).
The Rowan Shot cotton (in Grape) is an absolute favorite. It is hard to see in this picture but it is a two toned solid woven fabric with purple and red threads.
As you can see I have a little grey obsession at the moment. I think a lot of quilts will benefit from a touch of grey/gray. It does wonders for highlighting other fabrics.
