April at Plush Addict

Here are my top picks from Plush Addict for April.  I've gone for nine quilting cottons this months and I am happy to say that many of the fabrics are from British fabric companies like Makower and Lewis & Irene.

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

1. The Botanist: Dark Ferns and Leaves from Lewis and Irene.  A beautiful, subdued collection with a botanical drawing theme.  Dark prints can be hard to find and this one is a rather fine example.  Great for gardeners of course!

2.  Makower Scandi 3: Stag heads on Grey For extraordinarily well organised people, the newest Christmas ranges have started to arrive including Scandi 3 which is a restrained wintery collection with potential well beyond December.  Love the red noses that pop up in the grey!

3.  Pirates from Makower.  A very boy friendly fabric collection with lots of extras including this quilt kit from the lovely Lynne Goldsworthy.

4. Haberdashery by Makower- Sewing Machines.  From the Haberdashery range- Makower seem to be having an explosion of new fabric collections this month!  I'm rather partial subdued Sewing Machine print, it reminds me of the All Saints shops with all the old sewing machines in the window.

Tea Party from Makower.  Beautiful spring colours with aqua, pink, yellow and green.  Perfect collection for vintage kitchen fans and baking fanatics.  Lots of feature prints although the polka dots are my absolute favourite- see more of those here.

6.  Vintage Circus: Acrobats in White (Lewis and Irene).   Soft colours and vintage themed designs.  Great dress potential in this print!  See the rest of the collection here. 

7.  Bernatex Vroom Black Let's Drag Excellent racing car design that's a cut above the usual motor style print.

8.  Sundaland Jungle from Blend.  This Pygmy elephants print is the stand out for me (also available in a pink colour way.  Find the bundles and co-ordinating prints here.
9.  Radiance by Beth Studley for Makower: Heart Circles Navy.  This range is inspired by antique crochet and lace by talented British designer Beth Studley.  I'm guessing there's a lot of fussy cutting potential in this collection for english paper piecing and Passacaglia lovers.
