Will Work For Fabric

I'm home from the shoot! Got home last night and promptly fell ill. Now I'm coughing like it's in fashion. Blech.

Anyway, we realised that while we were on the shoot, quilters everywhere we were getting very excited about the new fabrics Denyse had released at Joann's.

By the way when she told me she was doing so, I was like "WHAT? Are you serious? No way! WHAT!?!", and she laughed saying that was the usual reaction. But I told her as long as the fabrics are of good quality, then who cares where they're being sold... right?


Seeing as I was helping out at the shoot as a favour, Denyse presented me with this bundle of the new line. She did say there were some in there that could only be found in Australia, and since I'm not so familiar with the line yet, I have no idea which ones.

No idea what I'll do with them quite yet, but all I know is the quilt made will live with me!

So pretty. I've been petting them more than I care to admit to.

Has anyone gotten their hands on this line?

How fun - and I had a feeling the fabrics might be different in Australia!

Very fun! I managed to get my hands on some today, and now you have me drooling over those additional prints not available here! Ah, fabric addictions!

Kristen said...

Nice pile! Have an awesome weekend with them!

Spread them out pretty in a picture for us. I bought some green/blues and the pinks. I think the yellows and some of the reds are Australian. Exciting!
Check my blog for some swatches!

I got to get to JoAnn's!!

Diane said...

Please spread them out for us :) The ones on the right look to be ones that are not available here.

Lucia said...

So, exciting! I think the ones in the LEFT stack are not available in the US. Would you mind spreading that stack out and taking a picture??

Oh, I love all of these. Can you show us in more detail? I'm in Australia and very much looking forward to being able to get some of these prints...

Kimberly said...

I would love to see more! I agree w/ Lucia. It looks like the stack on the left is the ones not found here. At least not yet!

Emily said...

Did Denyse mention WHY some of them are only available in Australia?

Emily said...

One more question! Would you mind awfully, counting the number of yellow prints in the collection? I would love to know!

Meg said...

I definitely see several that I haven't seen in the stacks from JoAnn's. Eeek!

Vicki said...

Lucky, lucky you. I might try to go buy a few of them later on today or next week. :)

angela said...

You crack me up! And Julie's right - you better put those Australia prints in a safety deposit box. People are already at the point of rabid insanity about all this.

Cathy said...

Do you know where in Australia we can get our hands on these beauties?
