My Favorite Solids: Pure Elements by Art Gallery
This is no surprise. I love these solids. I have made multiple projects with Pure Elements and have enjoyed working with them every time. I even have two new projects in the works using Pure Elements. I love the feel of the fabric. I also love the colors, even though the selection is still limited. The saturation is beautiful. I've never had a problem with bleeding or fading. So many of the colors just feel like "my colors".
I have probably made too many project with Pure Elements, but when it works for you, it works.

My Favorite Neutral: Essex Yard-Dyed Linen in Flax
Essex in flax is my perfect neutral. I love this fabric. It has just a bit of texture, washes up nicely, and matches perfectly with so many different fabrics. I used it most recently in my Valentine's Day pillow and am currently using a large amount in my pixel quilt (more to be shared soon).

My Current Favorite Fabric Line: Notting Hill by Joel Dewberry
This one probably isn't a surprise either. I've been sewing with a lot of Notting Hill recently. I love the colors, designs and the fabric. I love both the home dec fabric as well as the quilting cotton.

My Favorite Line of Blenders: Pearl Bracelets by Lizzy House
I use all sorts of blender fabrics in my quilts, but my favorite full line of blenders is Pearl Bracelets by Lizzy House. I was so excited when she came out with so many colors all together last fall at Market. It's a beautiful stack all together, but it's a great stash builder. I find myself using at least one color from my bracelets stack each time I make a scrappy quilt.
Christa Quilts is donating six Pearl Bracelets Fat Quarters in some of my favorite colors to our Friday giveaway.
My Favorite Newly-Released Fabric Line: Textures by Angela Walters
I was able to see these fabrics at Market last fall. I fell in love with them. I don't even have my hands on them yet, but I'm hoping to. Mostly, I love the colors, but the simple designs are fun as well. Most of these fabrics could easily be mixed in with lots of other lines and fabrics. They would make a great addition to the stash.
I Don't Do Dishes is generously donating a fat quarter bundle and one fabric panel from Textures for our giveaway.
That concludes the "My Favorite Things" posts for the week. I had a lot of fun sharing my favorites. Come back tomorrow to share your favorite sewing tool/fabric and enter the giveaway for several fun prizes!
