My fabric true love

It is very rare for me to love a fabric line so much that I buy the whole thing (AKA: this has never happened before).  Yesterday I received my biggest fabric splurge ever.  I am in love with the new Joel Dewberry Heirloom line even though everything tells me I shouldn't be.  I don't love pink.  I am really not a fan at all of purple.  I don't usually like big floral prints, yet I'm in love.  I can't explain it.  I already have a quilt in mind for these beautiful stacks of fabrics.  I bought a FQ stack in each colorway from the wonderful Brenda over at Pink Castle Fabrics

Sapphire

Ruby

Citrine

I also bought these for a skirt, and I can't wait to get started!

  1. I understand! I'm considering doing the same thing - for the first time - with Terrain by Kate Spain. Just love it, even tho it's not 'me!' Enjoy!! Can't wait to see what you make with it!

  3. I love this line too - I just put it on my Pinterest board IndiannaDreams. My favourite is the Spirograph Flower...not sure of its actual name but that's what it reminds me of. Sometimes a change of colour is good for us too.

  8. I totally share your love. I am really holding myself back from buying absolutely everything too.

  9. SO jealous! I've seen lots of pictures of Heirloom popping up, and it's killing me! When I saw the little online thumbnails, I thought it was pretty but not essential for purchase. I'm beginning to think it's essential...

  10. Isn't it so fun to get mail like that? Those are always the best days - maybe because they're so rare :) enjoy all that beauty!

  12. I feel the same way about Prince Charming by Tula Pink. I don't know what it was, but I just had to get it. I blame this post. :)

  13. I completely agree! I love this line and don't think there is a bad print in it. I especially love the ruby colorway. I can't wait to see what you do with it!

  14. I love them so much too! I have several of the prints in the Citrine color palette for a Swoon quilt. I love the Blockprint Blossom print the most. I think it might be my favorite fabric at the moment.

  15. Woo woo! There are so awesome basics in this new fabric line. My last fabric shopping trip for the summer is on Saturday (gotta diet!), and I'm hoping the LQS has some of this!

  17. Why shouldn't you love it, I do! I just bought the sapphire range plus a few from Ruby ANd I got it for 25% off, even better. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with it, I have no idea at this stage.

  19. These are pretty! I adore the Citrine colorway! Too much fabric out there, too little time! :)

  20. I bought the entire stack, too! I haven't done that since I started quilting! I'm going to use it for a king size (yep, that's right) comforter using the Swoon pattern :) Can't wait to see your project!

  22. I have a bundle of the Citrine waiting for me... because I'm waiting to splurge on Sandi Henderson's new Secret Garden. I saw some of the Heirloom voile in person... oh my word, it's incredible. :)

  24. I'm quite taken with these prints, and I'm not a "flower" person either! What skirt pattern are you planning to use?

  26. My heirloom stash arrived today (sapphire and some ruby), Im thinking of using it for a "Swoon" quilt, but am wondering if I should be a bit adventurous with the background colour. What do you think?
