Once you start feeling fabric, it is hard to step away, don't you think?

May your quilting day be blessed!

New fabric! Simply Color by V & Co for Moda and Hello Sunshine by Riley Blake

The Ombre solids were the main focal point in this line. So many ideas come to mind for quilts or apparel since ombre is a very wonderful way to play with color and the different shades just add that much more depth to your design. There is real beauty in simple designs and when you incorporate different shades of the same color in one project there is a subtle radiance that can make a very simple project look breathtaking. Throw in a love of vintage textiles and you get vintage and simple modern encompassed in one line!
There are some fantastic free pattern/tutorials over at Moda Bake Shop. Here are a few of my favorites using fabrics from Simply Color!

The quilt above is called Skittles Quilt. It uses 4 yds and a Charm Pack for the quilt top. Love it!

This is the Simply Woven quilt. Requires 2 Jelly Rolls plus yardage to make this colorful quilt.

Now a non-quilt project perfect for gift giving - Simply Colorful Coasters. These cuties use 1/3 yd of a solid of your choice and a Charm Pack.

Another super quick project - Herringbone Hot Pads. I love these! All that is required is a Charm Pack, 1 yd of fabric, some batting and a bit of insulating.

Since her 1930 debut, Nancy Drew has solved over 500 cases and sold over 200 million books in 25 languages! It's no mystery that our favorite girl detective has timeless appeal among generations of fans. For the past 8 decades as an American icon, Nancy continues to touch the lives of millions worldwide through books, movies, video games, graphic novels, stationery, pajamas, posters, board games, and now- Fabric! Fans will delight in the classic Nancy Drew imagery while trying to solve the next big mystery...What to make first?!
