What's New at TCQ - The Claude Monet Collection

Taking a slight step back in time, shortly before the Effervescence collection was delivered, another digital print collection from Robert Kaufman arrived in stock.

Most of the fabrics I ordered arrived a few weeks ago but the last three prints arrived yesterday, so it's time to share a bit more about them with you. There are a couple of panel prints in the collection which I haven't ordered as I thought they would have limited appeal, but what I have ordered is this wonderful texture print in all twelve colours.

They're such a lovely rainbow selection, I think they are shouting out to be a fat quarter bundle don't you?

The print itself is reminiscent of Monet's brushstrokes

Meadow Monet Texture 17080-270

Pansy Monet Texture 17080-220

But the best thing about this print is this wonderful project  which is a free download from Kaufman's website, or it will be soon...

Rainbow Lily Petals Quilt

I'll keep checking the site and add it as a download to TCQ as soon as it's available as well as kitting the petals in a kit. The other fabrics needed are a sky fabric and solid white.

As the fabrics are a digital print it is priced at £19.50 a metre and can be ordered from the website here.

What's New at TCQ - Effervescence

Ok, so these posts were supposed to be a regular thing each time I upload a new collection to the website. And yes, they've kind of fallen by the wayside (again) but rather than go back and pick up where I *should* go back to, let's fast forward to last week's delivery of Robert Kaufman fabrics and the absolutely stunning Effervescence!

This collection first came out a couple of years ago and I meant to order it then, but never got around to it. Kaufman have recently added some new fabrics to the collection and they really are awesome. First up are three ombre prints which change colour across the width of the fabric.

Bright Ombre 17061-195

Here's a closer look at the print

The remaining fabrics are smaller bubbles in a multitude of colours and combinations. Really can't decide which is my favourite! Today I'm feeling the love for the Mardi Gras colourway...

Mardi Gras Bubbles 17062-297

The fabrics are a digital print so they aren't cheap, but I think they're worth it. They've received a lot of love on social media so I don't think they'll be around for long.....

You can order them here.
