Take nine...March at Plush Addict

Time for my monthly visit to Plush Addict.   For this month's nine choices  I've picked a mix of quilting cottons, dressmaking fabrics and one useful choice for any sewist.  My colours have veered towards a spring-like pink/aqua/neturals palette,  despite the fact that it's been grey and cold all day in my little city!

(Items organised in three rows and numbered left to right)

1. Sarah Jane Pockade Summer (Sommer Collection).  Plush Addict have some of the lighter colour way from this winning and very popular collection.

2. Cotton Lawn- Mint Spot.  This looks like a good choice for dressmaking- shirts and tops.   It's a wide width at 145cm so good value too for a silky cotton lawn.

3.  Michael Miller Arrows Metallic in Bright White. I thought this print worked well with the other spring quilting cottons I'd picked and a little fussy cutting could make great directional use of the arrows too.  Other prints and colours from the same range are here. 

4.  100% pink Silk Organza (comes in other colours)  I bought half a metre of this recently after reading Karen's blog post on making a pressing cloth.   It's excellent stuff, it resists the heat and is sheer so you can see what you are pressing.  Well worth the money and half a metre will make two pressing cloths (or one massive one!).



5.  Radiant Girl FQ bundle: 5 prints and two Kona solids.  A lovely spring mix of prints. 

6.  Ponte Roma in Oatmeal.  Perfect weight for a spring jacket like a Grainline Morris Blazer.  Ponte is a double knit, stable fabric and the small amount of stretch makes such a differernce for comfort and  wear.  Lots of High Street shops sell Ponte Roma jackets and blazers.  

7.  Robert Kaufman Whatever the Weather - Raindrops Rainbow.   Rain themed prints are popular at the moment (maybe it's the British obsession with weather?). There's this range -more prints here, and also Michael Miller's Pitter Patter selection. 

8.  Michael Miller Arrow Flight Plucked Coin. A very pretty selection of colours in this print.  

9.   Radiant Girl Rabbits & Hearts on pink by Lecien I couldn't resist this print for Easter  (see more Radiant Girl prints in pic 5)
