Fabulous Fabric Friday

Today I wanted to highlight some exciting new and upcoming fabric collections for 2008.

First off, my absolute favourite fabric collection out right now is Ginger Blossom by Sandi Henderson.

If you haven't seen her debut collection or heard of Portabellopixie then you need to surf on over and read her blog. You'll be treated to beautiful and inspiring pictures, children's clothing designs, patterns, tutorials and of course her spring-inspired fabric!

I've already snagged a headband for myself that I saw when I was perusing pics in her Flickr group. It's made by Island Girl Bags on ETSY. Want one too? She has a few left, just click here.

Alas, no fabric yet for me. :o( If my local quilt shop doesn't order any than I'll need to shop online asap. I hear it's selling out fast! Congrats Sandi and Happy Birthday too! :o)

Next up is Anna Maria Horner, a multi-faceted designer who has appeared on The Martha Stewart Show and already created two amazing fabric collections so far; Bohemian and Chocolate Lollipop.

Anna's newest fabric collection, Drawing Room, promises to be something quite different from her first two collections yet still has her distinctive design aesthetic. I can see this fabric used in a lot of home decor projects. To see a full preview of the fabrics and colorways in this upcoming collection click here! Anna's blog is another feast for the eyes isn't it?

I just discovered the designer Melissa Averinos and her blog Yummy Goods this week. I'm really loving her blog but even better just a couple of days ago she posted a preview of her debut fabric collection Sugar Snap!

I adore the colors and the interesting designs. I expect her collection will do very well. :o)

What do you think of these collections? Are there any new or upcoming collections you're really excited about?

Stay tuned for Fabulous Fabric Friday pt 2...next Friday of course. ;o)
*So many fabrics so little time*
