sunday stash - on saturday
One of the fabric lines I am most excited about right now is From Little Things by Sarah Fielke. (In case you've always wondered how you pronounce her surname - it's feel-kie. So no more pronouncing it Fillk or Feelk or Sarah from Material Obsession books or just plain old Sarah. Or was that just me and Brioni?)
It's not out yet. I THINK it's out early next year, or maybe Spring* (Sarah - correct me if I'm wrong). I Love it. It makes me so happy. The colours and the bold prints - and those slightly scary Little Shop of Horrors flowers that are likely to be meat eaters. And the dots. The dots are really gooooooood dots. I have a lot of dots in my stash, one day I might make a dotty quilt. Better add that to the list.
I can't quite decide what I'll make with this stack. I might do something hand pieced. I might do the free pattern Sarah designed for Lecien, because that uses diamonds and I am a bit afraid of diamonds. Or maybe I'll use a wedge ruler - because wedges are calling to me. Or maybe I'll do a bit of everything. Either way I'll just stare at it for a bit longer, because it's so perfect sat in it's stack.....
So what I want you to do is pester your local quilt shop for it. Or your favourite online quilt shop. Just pester everyone you meet. Sarah is amazingly lovely and I want her first line of fabric to be a complete hit so she can make a million more lines and keep doing what she does. Because she's incredibly talented and incredibly lovely with it (her new book is coming out next year, by the way - let me tell you now, if you liked Material Obsession you will DIE for her solo book. I'll keep you posted on that one, because, seriously, it's OMG fantastic. It's due out in Australia April 2011, so a bit after that in the UK, and then who knows in the US. Hopefully pretty soon after). Please - pester them, ask for From Little Things by Sarah Fielke for lecien and buy lots. If you can't buy lots, buy some. Thanks xxxx
*EDITED TO ADD - Lecien have confirmed it will ship to shops in January!!!!!
PS. The giveaway is still going on over here. Just leave a comment on that post to enter. Not this one, because I'll get confused. It's easily done.
