A bonanza in the mailbox..........


 I pre-ordered the new Marcia Derse Line, The blue one.  I don't think she has ever done a line in all one color before.





Here is a better look at the prints.  I wonder if her next lines will be the same prints in other individual colors.








The other package was a surprise, and early birthday present from a friend (thanks Sharon!).  It is more of the prints in the new Tula Pink line including the zebras.



Maybe the Lemur print would be a good alternate block fabric with the 8" pinwheels that I made last night.







Or maybe every other pinwheel should have the color dot print. 

So many options!!



I had seen a preview video of Tula Pink talking about how she designed this line.  This print is a background that looks like graph paper with turquoise lines and sketches and notes she made while coming up with ideas for the line.  This one is available in a wide backing fabric too.  It is so exciting to get new fabric!!

I really enjoy it when you show groups of fabric (or even just one or two fabrics) and talk about why you like them. I learn so much from you. Often, they are fabrics I wouldn’t have looked at twice. Now I seek them out! That is how I have come to love Marcia Derse fabrics, I have a small “hoard” of her fabrics now. I need to use them/enjoy them. That group of blues is fabulous. How neat if she does collections of a particular color.

it is exciting to get new fabric and then to just look at it for awhile until you figure out the perfect way to use it.

Just bought 2 yards of the Tula Pink color dot! Perfect for all sorts of blocks and borders.

Blue; my favourite colour; I'll say no more :) Loving the greys as well of course and I like how the coloured dots change through the fabric. You must be a happy bunny with your new collection :)

I used to love getting new fabrics, but am now focused on trying to use the hundreds of fabrics I now have. It's been quite a few years since I bought any new ones, except when I need to replace some flannel that I use when making baby items for the great grandchildren that we are being blessed with. Number 12 arriving in April, and I will start sewing soon.
I'm really enjoying this weather and will be outside today trimming bushes and hostas.

Looks like the previous comment is a scam/hoax/nuisance one - I hate those and know you do, too!

Oh my those blues are fabulous - must go check them out online. I love her fabrics.

What fun you are going to have with those new fabrics!!

Amazing pack of blues Wanda! I must thank you for showing settings of the new Tula Pink fabrics along with our regular quilting fabrics, I fell in love with the zebra, lemur and and the dot print when I first saw her new range. A local shop is selling these and I think I really do need just a little!!

I've been so tempted to buy that line of Marcia Derse - it's so pretty! I'm a big fan of hers. I know you will do something fantastic with it.

Looks like great additions from which you can create your beautiful quilts. I especially like the bottom row of the blue fabrics.
