New at Eternal Maker

Freshly arrived at Eternal Maker are some great fabric lines including Tula Pink Salt Water - shown rather nicely in the pic with Parson Grey Seven Wonders- they all play so nicely together.  They would make a subtle masculine quilt too. 
Also just arrived is some of the Denyse Schmidt Shelburne Falls range.  I must say I fall for Denyse's ranges each time and I love this one.  I have used the black floral for a dress and I have other prints stored including the aqua/yellow floral in this picture ready for future quilting projects.  As is the way with her ranges, some of these prints are very close to original vintage prints in their design which is what attracts me to them so strongly. I think the deco fans would make a great binding choice or as strips in quilt patterns- I am already thinking of using them in this pattern bought in the Amitie sale, the idea is turning over in my head!  You can buy the fabrics below in a bundle too.
I have mentioned before that I find something unexpected, something new, some treasure every time I delve around Eternal Maker website.  I have been assured that the bricks and mortar shop is the same.  A couple of weeks ago I came across a thread matching service which is ideal when you are planning either a quilt project- they are an Aurifil supplier and stock a huge range of colours and weigths from 50wt- my go to thread for piecing and light looking quilting including the smaller  200m tester size
For a dress making or bag project- they can provide a matching Gutermann sew all  poly thread. 

I use this for all my dress making, every sewing machine I have ever had has always preferred Gutermann and my mum always used it so that's good enough for me!  They offer a range of sizes including the more economical 250m and 500m so if you are planning a project, send Anna, Rachael and the rest of the Eternal Maker team an email and it can be a one stop purchase for your fabric/thread/pattern/findings
And whilst we are thinking of taking the work out of fabric selection (its a hard life) take a look at their designer bundles and Eternal Maker bundles.  Basic Grey Peanut Butter and Jelly is a great collection and in two colour ways, aqua
And there is a great fat quarter bundle, Likin' Lichen, put together to showcase a range of designer fabrics that share similar tones and colours and range of scale and line in the prints, a 50s mid centrury modern feel in this bundle.
Enjoy letting someone else do the work!
