July at Plush Addict

I am not sure where to start with  my July visit to Plush addict, new arrivals or sale bargains?  Let's start with new in the quilting fabric section.  Christmas and Halloween fabrics are arriving thick and fast and there are some beauties that will not hang around until October or December.  My absolute favourite is this one:


Skater's in White from Makower's Christmas Wonderland 2015.  You can find all the prints here , there is a bundle option here  and at £2.75/FQ,  they are great value too. 


Halloween fabric seems to be very popular with tween/teenagers ( judging from my personal experience) and I think you can easily get away with making an Autumn quilt and use Halloween fabrics and get months of use out of it before it gets stored in the summer - we have a Christmas quilt in use all year round!  This vintage signage style fabric, Witch Spell Black has a great drama to it.


I also like this Michael Miller Bone Head Gray Day of the Dead theme print, great for tween/teens and also available in an icy blue colourway


There are some more cutesy Halloween collections like Halloween Magic which has softer colours and some glow in the dark prints but I love the impact of these darker prints!
Away from the seasonal collections, there are some new Michael Miller arrivals that caught my eye.  First is Melodies which has a tutti fruiti colour palette and some very usable prints.  The Double Dot print is a perfect quiet print which packs a lot of colour.  L to r: Starfruit, Orchid, and Apricot.


For me, the stand out feature from this fabric group is Triangles in Jewel.   The designer of this collection is Sarah Campbell and she has years of impressive design experience to draw upon.  This is an immensely happy and joyful set of fabrics.


Seedling is a bold collection of prints from Michael Miller, reminiscent of woodcuts.  The most obvious to plump for is the Growl and Chirp prints.




Thomas Paul designed this collection and you can see his experience in interior fabrics coming through in these prints and the rich colour palette.


Let's have a quick look at the sale bargains whilst they are still around- offer ends midnight 29th July!   I found some Liberty Lawn on offer, Gymnasts print in black, £11.20/metre is an unmissable offer!




And in the quilting cotton, this Mako Retro Bake text print is rather lovely- nice backing fabric for kitchen makes.  Also available in pink.


If you want to find a bargain, get rummaging before the deadline, Wed 29th July midnight!
