Once again, there are so many new fabric lines that I am liking!! Here are a couple I recently purchased selected prints of.
Hello, Bear: Love the muted palette, especially the splashes of teal and coral amongst the neutrals.
Yoyogi Park: A friend Just let us know she was pregant, and then I received Hawthorne Threads newsletter with this wonderful line from Skinny La Minx. Perfect for a baby quilt – right!!
Elizabeth: Of course Tula Pink’s new line, my favorite prints are the stripes. I did not pink up the flower pints. Don’t shot me, but this is one of first Tula Pink’s lines I have liked a majority of the prints, in a while. I think there are some great basics in this line that can be mixed in with other prints.

The Norwegian word for a bear is “Bjorn”. What a perfect name for my new quilt top.
I had the great pleasure of testing this giant bear paper piecing pattern for Juliet over @ Tartankiwi. Once again she developed a wonderful pattern!!
UPDATE: Pattern is now available in Juliet’s shop on Craftsy.
Here are some more details…
Block Size: 30 x 30 ”
Technique: Paper Piecing
Fabric for Bear: Umbrella Prints
Fabric for Background: Netorious in Kerchief (Cotton and Steel), Collage Texture (Carrie Bloomston), and Full Circle in Egg Shell (Eloise Renouf)
When finished this will land up being a wall hanging for my friend Daisy (over @ Ants to Sugar), who is expecting a new arrival next month!! [Daisy, feel to rename the bear for when its in its new home :-)]
On another note, but still related…..Juliet @ Tartankiwi is running a fantastic challenge with her butterfly patterns. There are prizes (oakshott cottons!!). So, check it out, have a go with her patterns – entries are open until 31st August.
I am submitting the Kaleidoscope of Butterflies quilt, I made with her butterfly patterns….which details can be found here.
Just to inspire you/ challenge you all to join in….some close ups of the two bigger butterflies.
Linking up with a few sites to celebrate that “bear” of a finish (hahaha)…
