What does that name bring to mind for you? Not sure? Try doing a google images search and see what you find.....
Did you find something like this? Something with an Eastern Indian flair? This is The Quilted Fish's (Amanda Herring's) new fabric line from Riley Blake. It's called Madhuri. Isn't it fabulous??? I love it! I just love the elephant fabric, and how about that circle design here? Oh, my gosh. I'm excited to work with this stuff! (Sorry for the wrinkles. I haven't had time to iron it yet.)
Here are some more fabrics from the line. Can you see the selvages on that elephant fabric? The color dots are little elephants! Too cute. I might have to get some yardage just to have the selvages. (I'm not joking.) I also love the diamond fabric. The red floral is very in keeping with Amanda's style. The color scheme is similar to, but a little different from, her previous fabric lines. I like that. I can mix up all her fabric lines for a really scrappy looking quilt.
Here is some more fabric in the line. You can see there are some nice coordinating solids in the line, too. Green, red, (you can see a little shot of) white, and that pretty turquoise in the top photo.
Amanda has given the design team members a challenge for Market. I think I have a pretty good idea of what I want to do. What would you do if you were gifted some scraps of this fabric? :-)
If you want to see the full line of Madhuri, you can do so here. It's coming soon to shops. There are even laminates in some of these fabrics. Yippee!
Oh! I almost forgot to tell you! Amanda is selling her patterns for 30% off! You can see the patterns here: http://www.thequiltedfishpatterns.com/shop/Patterns-.htm Hop on over and use the code in the graphic above to get your discount!
I probably won't be able to go to Market this year (boo hoo!). I just don't know how I could get away right now, with everything else going on.
It has been raining here for 6 days straight now. I'm getting a little tired of the dreariness, seeing as we've been suffering it since October. The sun is still out there, isn't it? You've seen it, haven't you?
I am not complaining about the rain. We need it badly. I'd like our lake to come back! (There is more water in it now!) But a little sunshine here and there would be nice. Okay, I'll put away the world's tiniest violin now and quit whining. :-)
Have a wonderful weekend! Any fun plans? I have a sew day with Caroll on Saturday! Can't wait!
Until next time,
