Entries in Birch Fabrics (7)

Just in: Art Gallery, Andover, Birch knits and more!

Art Gallery has wowed us again with this latest group, “Tule,” by Leah Duncan.  And, of course, their cloth is so smooth and lovely, perfect for either quilting or apparel.  Blues, peach,bold florals and geometric and they all play nice together!

Kona Bay’s pretty, pretty pieces from “Tomorrow Morning” feature large scale branches with coral-y blooms and birds.  Divine.

Some spoooooky little monsters from Moda’s “Boo Crew.”  Really, Halloween prints can be year around for some of us.

A recent trend in the quilting cotton world is groups of what they are considering basic, blender type prints with a more modern flair.  These arrows from Andover are exactly that.  Perfect for a little something contemporary, without it being a total show-stopper.  Easy breezy. 

It seems lately we just can’t keep enough knits on hand.  These beauties just arrived, including the super soft, simple prints, organic cotton knits from Birch Fabrics.  There are some new t-shirts in my future!

And, if you follow us on Instagram (boltfabricpdx) you’ll see the brand, brand new arrivals, including this great red and white printed ikat Jen over at Grainline used for a dress.  Nice dress, Jen! You can now see our Instagram feed on our newly remodeled website.  Horray!  See you soon.

Just in: Organic cotton, more African prints, metallic and more!

A whole slew of organic cotton prints arrived in the past week.  Including some of Cloud 9’s Don’t Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus by Mo Willems, and Birch Fabric’s The Grove, pictured below.

The top two photos show off the canvas weight prints, the lower photo is of medium weight prints.  Great colors.  I’m not sure why, but this group has a sort of nostalgic feeling for me…I’m loving the big tree and thatch-y background.

These stunning prints are a welcome addition to our already amazing collection of African wax prints.  You’ve got to see these in person.  The colors, the designs, the scale.  So refreshing.

Mark Cesarik’s Summer Camp is delightful.  Two tone ferns, fishing lures, stylized tree rings.  I first saw Mark’s fabric designs on-line via his and his wife’s Sew Bettie site.  You can read up more on him here.

A little bit of In the Navy from Camelot and who doesn’t want a little gold metallic chevron in their life?!

Our selection of the lighter-weight “textured solids” from Andover is growing!

And, some of the latest patterns to fill our bins. 

Remember, we’re happy to ship things out, just give us a call or shoot us an email!

And, if you’re in town, come on in and say hi!

Just in: Anna Maria Horner, Lotta Jansdotter, Dear Stella, Birch and more!

As I’ve said before, I feel like a thousand times, I am a big fan of Anna Maria Horner’s designs.  I love her large scale prints.  These prints are on a light-medium weight cotton linen blend and are gorgeous.  I’m thinking new living room curtains, or a really amazing quilt back.  The colors are astounding.  These bolts need to be opened up for sure, so you can really take in the design.

Lotta Jansdotter’s newest group, Glimma just arrived.  We have both medium weight cotton prints and canvas (the stack off to the right in the back).  She’s done it again, with clean, modern, easy to use designs.  Some new totes for going to the pool this summer just may be in order!

Pretty, pretty indigo and white from Dear Stella’s Ravena line.  Crisp, clean, feels like spring.  Another group just in from DS is Va Bene!  Fun Italian images: maps, scooters and tomatoes.

Sweet new organic cotton prints from Birch are here—Yay Day!  Animals parading, confetti dots, soft, but not too muted of colors.  I particularly like the garland around the doe’s neck.  Very sweet.

And some amazing color combos from Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably.  Enjoy!
